I am so sick of the Middle East that I am going to begin excising the term from my existence.

Why, fundamentally, should Americans care? I see oil and pressure groups. Oil we can cure over time, the sooner we get started the better. Pressure groups, well, a tougher nut but we can work on that too. That is not a code word for Jews, by the way. Seems like the Saudis have been buying plenty of top-tier influence.

I hope in my lifetime to see the term "benign neglect" applied with fervor to the whole damned region.
