This guy writes with a great deal of conviction, and whether you agree with him or not, the future looks more than a little dodgy.

Today, the Middle East is standing on the edge of an internecine eruption that is likely to sweep away the existing order and radically alter the regional order, with far-reaching strategic implications for the West.
The region is splitting apart and ready to explode out of its largely artificial boundaries along two major fault lines, ethnic and religious. These emerged most prominently after the toppling of Iraq’s Saddam Hussein in 2003. The ethnic divide is between Sunni and Shia Muslims; the religious divide is between the Islamic extremist Wahhabi and the even-more-extremist Salafi movements. The differences are not merely ideological, they are existential.
The conflicts are likely to involve the major regional players: Sunni Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Turkey; Shia Iran, and, richest of all, pro-Salafi Qatar, where annual GDP is running at more than $100,000 per person. Jihadist movements like al-Qaeda will no doubt muscle in on the anarchy in an attempt to gain new adherents.

  1. oh and as for the answer?

    That’s not new either… kill them all let “Allah” sort them out! Piss be upon him

  2. You want someone else to “kill them all” while you sit on your couch, don’t you?

  3. Petr when the shooting starts you may believe it will stay within the confines of the Middle East, but no one with any brains does.

    As for the front lines I have two nephews standing on them right now do you? Have you yourself ever served in the military?

    You can’t lecture me you little commie, you don’t have the bona fidies or the balls to give your words any weight. My family is on the front lines there and here, we know the cost. Do you? I doubt it.

    Crawl under your rock and hide if your lucky you might live, but ……

  4. I asked: You want someone else to “kill them all” while you sit on your couch, don’t you?

    I’ll take that as a YES then!
