To Our “Partners” in the Middle East – Get off your Butts!
“So therefore we must act fast and holistically to tackle and respond to the interconnected threats whether it is in this region, Africa, Asia or in Europe,” he said. http://news.yahoo.com/king-jordan-warns-world-war-against-humanity-161351407.html
They were eager to fight then.
On May 15, 1948, the day the British Mandate over Palestine ended, the armies of five neighboring Arab states invaded the new State of Israel, which had declared its independence the previous day. The invasion, heralded by an Egyptian air attack on Tel Aviv, was vigorously resisted. From the north, east and south came the armies of Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Transjordan and Egypt. http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/History/Invade.html
I agree with Bernie Sanders.
“The United States cannot do it alone,” Sanders added. “In the Middle East, Saudi Arabia has the third-largest military budget in the entire world. They’re going to have to get in and take on ISIS as well as other countries in that region. The United States should be supportive. We should be working with other countries. But the United States cannot always be the only country involved in these wars.”
Where are they now?
Why don’t Arab armies wipe out Daesh?
They did not hesitate to invade Israel several times that did not pose any physical threat to them.
But Arab states are not in a big hurry to put boots on the ground to fight Daesh who are an imminent threat to Arab states.
And yet these states spend huge money on military. Why don’t they fight their enemy, in their region?
My guess is they are counting on Europe and the US to do the job for them. And that is why our “friends” and “partners” should be encouraged, pushed to do their duty to get rid of ISIS and other nuts. After all Saudi Arabia started this by spreading Wahhabism around the world.
Under no circumstances should Western countries put their boots on the ground in the Middle East and pay with their lives for lazy, rich cowards like the Saudis and Golf states. Let them do their fair share.
I have a suggestion that will make it easier for Arabs to send their troops to fight ISIS. Just imagine that ISIL stands for Independent State of Israel Liquidation. Use your imagination, you cowards.
But on the other hand, Israel defeated you every time. Oops…so much for that idea.
