I am sad and disheartened that there is war again in the middleast. It's not news. It's bad manners. Next year Christians should collectively indiscriminately and arbitrarily go to war with the Buddhists on Ramadan and Honaka. If tribal people want to fight make them fight on their own holy days.
As to a solution, it's obvious. New England is unlikely to invade California. California doesn't know anything exists outside it's borders. So the US should send the Grand Canyon over to the Middle East to keep the two sides apart. They need geography more than they need military aid.
Given the excess of Chinese, as the US has already hit them up for money, perhaps the Middle east could hit them up for adult supervision. Send one Chinese person for every citizen in the middle east with the directions to slap the fingers of anyone, and I mean anyone, playing with bombs. We're likely to see better results than any of the pathetic political solutions to date.
As this is the worst kindergarden bullying ground on the planet, rather than sending more politicians over, a delegation of elementary principals with some kindergarden kid consultants might make a far more lasting and intelligent solution than all that have yet been proposed. If that doesn't work threaten to cut off MTV.
Both sides are being brats and their allies are no better. That said there are a lot of good people living over there and they shouldn't have to be subjected to the delinguents carrying on without consideration for anyone but themselves. Stop already. Grow up and become boring like Canadians.
