Because like or not, we are still the keepers of order in the world full of rogues. Do a Google search on amount of trade we do with the middle-east (M-E) and trade with countries who trade with M-E such as China and Japan. If M-E goes bonkers, it will most certainly affect our economy.

In the end it all boils down to corporations, economic activity, jobs etc. The days of crawling into our own shell and ignore all foreign trade are long past.

However I could’nt agree with you more on that the M-E is a pain in the arse.
