President Obama is organizing a coalition of death and destruction which will blast bad terrorists to bits. Planes and missiles from the US, France, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and a few other Arab states have sent planes, drones, and missiles hurtling toward ISIS positions in Iraq and Syria. I assume this assault actually killed some of the bad guys. But, the entire premise of the Obama Doctrine is that the best way to solve problems in the Middle East is to blast away. How about a reality check:
1. The unemployment rate in most Middle Eastern countries(aside from Israel) hovers about 35% at a minimum.
2. This means that millions of young men and women have no jobs, no income,and live by part time work or aid from parents.
3. This means there are hundreds of young boys willing to blast themselves to pieces since life offers no economic solutions.
4. This means angry imams can rouse anger within young people who have nothing in life and offer them something in the after life.
There is need for an ECONOMIC PLAN that provides jobs and meaningful lives to the young people of the Middle East. How about engaging them in work rather than become engaged in death? Where is the Obama Doctrine of Economic Development??

As one gazes around the world, one thing is very clear, decisions by people have caused problems, not ideology. Vladimir Putin has changed policies in Russia which resulted in death and destruction in Ukraine. Chinese leaders are responsible for persecution of those seeking to create a democracy in the land. Muslim clerics created terrorist groups by preaching words of hate and violence. Identify any problem in the world and it is clear that people made choices. Recep Erdogan, now President of Turkey, turned away from working toward creation of a democratic nation. Heck, former President Gul disagreed with Erdogan choices and now Turkey is moving away from democracy. Current leaders of Egypt had many choices to create a modern Egyptian nation, but refused. Instead of focusing upon economic development and freeing forces of economic changes, Egyptian leaders decided upon policy of terror.
Here in America, people like Ted Cruz or John Boehner, chose policies of obstruction and policies that protect the wealthy in order to create the current state of gridlock. The present mess in Washington has nothing to do with ideology, it is the result of individual choices. If people behave in stupid ways, don’t blame it on ideology, it is their decision to be a nut case who lacks any sense of intelligence! Blame it on individuals, not some ideology or religion!
