Fatah and Hamas are now attempting to work together.
The United States is more divided than I have ever seen in my lifetime. This, along with the poor relationship that the U.S. now has with it’s closest allies, England and Israel is a recipe for inaction towards objectives in our mutual interest. At the same time our enemies throughout the Middle East are more united than I have ever seen. Care to guess where HAMAS and Fatah will direct their shooting if they stop shooting at each other?
I don’t know if this is because our President is such a poor leader that this is occurring despite his intentions, or if it is because our President wants to CHANGE us so drastically that he embraces many of the concepts that are against us in the region. He must believe in a concept of encouraging a united Islamic entity to enable the Palestinians to not feel so downtrodden and helpless that should lead to greater stability. (I disagree with this, but I can see how others might not)
In either case, we are in for BIG trouble. We can only expect our enemies to gain strength and ability. We are fighting a defensive war. Our enemies now choose the battlefield. It can only be a matter of time before we get really walloped. And 9/11 will only be considered a warm up.
