The Middle East and Retrenchment Syndrome

What is the cost of US disengagement in the Middle East?


Our cost in brief, enabling the rise of totalitarian powers.
Secondly, complicating the issue is our false view of Islam. As Erdogan himself said, rough quote here, (There is no moderate Islam, no Radical Islam, it is what it is Islam and what it will always be.)
Many resources on this and its history. Consult VDH

Read "Sword and Scimitar", "The Al-Qaeda Reader" both by Raymond Ibrahim
"A Sword Over the Nile" by Adel Guindy "The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise" by Dario Fernandez-Morera"

Until we really know the enemy, he will continue to confound us.
