    It's complex, at best, because we have in the past often fanned various factions in the Middle East according to our own immediate interests - oil imports, military advantage, proxy strategy related to China and Russia (and Europe, for that matter).

    However, we are also in the strongest position to compel behavior and ultimately stabilize the region.  I know many in the world would roll their eyes at this notion of the US going around on bully patrol, given our past, but if we're going to be reality-based - that is the ironic truth of things.

    Howard Dean will always be my president.
