You don't have control over your own country either since your idea of "isolation" is completely ignorant of just simple politics of the US and the world.
Hmmm...well that's fairly "defeatist". Gee, do all Iranians just roll-over?
Oxymandias wrote:2. But would I support it? Of course I would. I don't see any harm in refugees. the Middle East already accepts thousands of refugees from Syria, Iraq, and Palestine. Just because the country does it doesn't mean I completely support the country.
I'm not even sure what you mean here?
Oxymandias wrote:3. Ok so? Ultra-nationalism is the thing that killed the Middle East i.e. the Abbasid Caliphate and was the thing that lead to the anti-intellectualism you see today. Ghazi was actually a nationalist and wanted Middle Eastern philosophy to be based on an Islamic framework rather than a filthy savage framework which he continues to undermine continuously throughout his work similar to how you continue to undermine the Abbasid Golden Age and it's contributions.
Again...don't know what you're talking about...don't really care...

You sound like a spoiled kid who screams to everyone on the playground that if they don't give him something or don't do something for him, he'll tell his "uber rich parents" when in actuality the parents don't give two fucks about the spoiled kid. America is a country full of diverse people and it's leaders aren't stupid enough to execute that fantasy of yours. You don't have some powerful army behind you that you can control at a whim. You have absolutely no political power at all and even if it did get traction a leader who tried to go about your proposal would be committing national suicide. It would cost so much resources and not big enough of a benefit. Alright you isolated the Middle East. All you did is basically protect the Middle East from any foreign powers and let it develop by itself. And what do you get in return? Protection from an organization (ISIS) that doesn't even have that much power to begin with.
Actually I'm originally an Alberta farmboy who started with absolutely nothin', and through effort and some luck, made enough wealth that I can indulge my own spawn. My life has taught me one thing above all...NOTHING is impossible, if you're willing to put your mind to it and work hard. And yes...I do know how cliche that sounds. But it happens to be true.
War happens to create wealth actually. And the siege Ive been advocating, would also probably be good for the economy. And now it's time for me to ask you to stop being naive.
It's not just ISIS and we all know it.

Roll-over I guess...
Oxymandias wrote:6. Are you implying that he agrees with extremist religious movements like ISIS? WTF is wrong with you? If you can say that to him because he's Lebanese, I can say that you support the KKK because you are white. Remember, not all white people are KKK but all of the KKK is white.
Try reading my post again. And we'll just excuse your English skills on this one...k?
Oxymandias wrote:7. Oh really? And what is your proposal? A political wet dream with no regard towards the general population. The West would collapse immediately if you did that since it cost so much resources, so much taxes, so much money, and so many lives that it's not even worth it. By the end of the isolation process the people would lose faith in the government, a government more concerned with the Middle East and less with the people it rules over.
Oh I think we can afford it. And if this progression continues...we'll HAVE to afford it.
That'll make the Rothchilds and their buddies love us all again.
Just a passing thought, but an interesting one you might wanna ponder.
Do you REALLY think its a good idea to fuck with the German people?
