    You would bitch and moan about that also.
    I'm pretty sure I didn't say ignore the ME. Yep, but thanks for lying to get around this awful hypocrisy of the guy you support.

    FTR, we can and should do business and build ties with the UAE, Qatar, Jordan, Iraq, Iran (carefully) and especially India, which is so heavily interested in the Middle East they might as well be a part of it. Indonesia too, and the Muslim common identity is important.

    Saudi and Pakistan have screwed us too many times to be trusted.

    New Poll Results

    NATION FAVORS TRAVEL BAN ON PERSON WHO HAS RECENTLY VISITED MUSLIM COUNTRY

    RIYADH (The Borowitz Report)—In a notable shift of public opinion, a substantial majority of Americans now favor a travel ban on a person who has recently visited a Muslim country, a new poll shows.

    According to the poll, if such a person travelled to a country in the Middle East, for example, he should be subjected to extreme vetting before he is allowed to return to the United States.

    If, in the course of such vetting, the person is found to have recently engaged in activities to undermine or even destroy American democracy in collaboration with a foreign enemy, he should be barred forever from entering the U.S., poll respondents agreed.

    In sizable numbers, those polled “strongly agreed” with the statement, “Any American who travels to a Muslim country with the intention of selling them deadly weapons should not be allowed to return.”

    Finally, a broad majority of poll respondents said that if such a person were to remain outside the borders of the U.S. forever, they would “sleep better at night.”
