The Mideast Crisis According To Tom Friedman

Friedman reminds us that the Mideast has created problems for every US president since Eisenhower.  He once thought that invading Iraq would be helpful.  That was not a good idea for Iraq or the US.  Now Syria is a mess, and its civil war is spreading to other areas.  He claims that this will create a problem for the US, but he has no good solution to offer.  In his view we are dependent upon Russian intervention as a mediator.

The only good thing to take away from his description of the Mideast, is the the battle between red states and blue states in the US is mild in comparison.
