This is hard to believe, even in the Village

Hang on tight, this is going to be a bumpy ride.  I can only hope that I’ve got it right.  Although, come to think of it, I could be completely turned around and it wouldn’t make a bit of difference to the outcome.  Read on, and you’ll see what I mean.

In the Middle East, we are currently helping Iraq in their battle against terrorists coming out of Syria (ISIS).    Those terrorists are being trained and supplied by people who also hate Iran.  So Iran, Iraq’s traditional enemy, wound up helping Iraq after we (supposedly) ended our war and left Iraq hanging.  That means that we’re now sharing battle intel with, and sometimes taking orders from, Iran.  You know, those people that the Republicans were willing to commit treason for to keep us from having a treaty with.

At the same time, we are helping Saudi Arabia fight the terrorists coming out of Yemen (the Houthis).  Nothing too newsworthy about that, other than the fact that Saudi is fighting with anybody.  Being rich, they usually hire out their battles.  We are usually the mercenaries that do their fighting for them.  So we’re dropping bombs on those mean old Yemen terrorists who are supplied, trained, and backed by — wait for it — Iran.

Yes.  On two fronts, not all that far apart, we are fighting both for and against Iran.

We have finally done it.  We’ve given up any pretense of logic.  We’re simply the biggest and best hired gun, and will willingly fight anyone — apparently, even ourselves.  And that gives us the obvious solution to the conflicts going on in the Middle East.  We can simply take over both sides of every conflict.  And why not?  It’s not like any of the rich kids are dying.

    Hmm, interesting idea. Or we could just get out of the Middle East altogether and let them destroy each other if that’s what they want.
