"Jordan is the most pro-American country in middle-east. I would give them money long before Egypt which is now run by Muslim Brotherhood leader, Morsi. King Abdallah of Jordan has acted in favor of US."

Granted, but why do they need US tax-payer dollars? Why? To keep them pro-America? If so, that's called bribery, as we do with so many other countries. Yeah, I know, either us or Russia or China...blah, blah, blah.

I'm sick of the Middle East. I wish it would cease to exist, except for Israel. No, I'm not Jewish.

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.
