U.S. Out Of the Middle East!

"If they will not protect our embassies from mobs who come to burn our flag," says Pat Buchanan, "let us lower the flag ourselves and bring Old Glory home" — Time To Come Home?

"Is it not long past time to do a cost-benefit analysis of our involvement in the Middle and Near East?" asks the peacenik paleocon, calculating "6,500 dead, 40,000 wounded and $2 trillion piled onto a national debt that is $16 trillion."

There's something about this song that reminds me of where American foreign policy is currently stuck - only, with an ironic twist.

Yep, we're stuck in "captivity" all right.

Not just the Middle East -- we need to get out of Europe, the Indian Ocean, etc. Dismantle the Empire, the bases, the instillations, all of it. Come back home safe and sound and leave the rest of the world as we find it. Trade with those who wish to trade with us, have cultural exchanges, etc. with those who are peaceful with us. But end the Empire. We don't need it and it is costing us treasure and lives.
