Humane Response to Anti-U.S. Violence

Enough with the endless mid-east conflict.  It’s long past time to get out.  Completely out.

Forget retaliating for the unprovoked and unjustified invasion of U.S. soil and murder of U.S. citizens.  We should immediately sever diplomatic ties with hostile nations, withdraw all military and official personnel, and terminate all forms of aid – economic, food, medical, defense, and everything else…and stop buying their oil. The billions of dollars saved by ending the international welfare program could be used to temporarily subsidize the price of oil purchased from friendly nations (which would surely rise with increased demand) until we are able to increase oil production within our own borders to sufficient levels. Of course, this must go hand-in-hand with immediately opening our own oil fields in the Gulf of Mexico, Alaska and elsewhere.
