Consequences of a Mid-East WithdrawSubmitted by ultimation on Tue, 07/31/2012 - 13:36
I have a nice question for everyone.
My father and I talk politics all the time, generally agreeing. He's not a Ron Paul supporter, but does like him and agrees with many if not most of his policy positions.
Here's my question: what would be the consequences of ending all our foreign "peace keeping" wars and not starting any new ones?
I realize there are different views on when/where we should go to war and under what circumstances, but I want to objectively discuss the direct results of a troop withdrawal. Would it result in Iran gaining nuclear power and becoming a global threat? Would terrorist organizations gain such power that they would be unrestrained and cause more trouble? Etc.
