The Middle East Uprisings and the (un-)American Empire

  • "One can’t help but be reminded of the revolts across Eastern Europe in 1989 that began the fall of the Soviet Empire," writes Eric Margolis, suggesting that "[n]ow it may be the turn of America’s Mideast empire, an empire constructed of Arab dictatorships to assure U.S. domination of oil and Israel’s domination of the Levant" — Fall of the Raj.

  • Patrick J. Buchanan asks, "What vital interest of a United States staring at bankruptcy would be imperiled if we got out of the way, stopped fighting these countries’ wars and paying these countries’ bills and let these people determine their own future for good or ill?" — A Middle East Without America?
