You said it, Carol. Just look at the mess in Egypt and Libya. The " Arab Spring " has been a total disaster.
The U.S. needs to tread very warily.

I was so hoping this would be Obama on another of his field trips and that he would stay. ;-) There is not a central group of rebels with which to work. Until they get togetrher we would be well advised to keep our aid and money to home.

Besides, how in the heck can this govenment enforce a sequester with all the hurt it is causing and give away billions overseas??? Cut Pakistan and Israel to zero aid for just a year and you have enough money to build a border fence, feed countless needy Americans, etc.

Our priorities are horrible and care not for our own people.
