The argument for even the mild-mannered Middle Eastern nations is: they‘re our allies. We rely on them in the war on terror. They mean no harm. Well, that‘s ignorant, naive thinking at its best. Just because they don‘t seem to mean us harm now, does not mean they won‘t go against us in the future. The fragile, uncertain waves of political policies within our own nation are suspect at best, not to mention the policies of the unstable international community.
Internationally cheap labor terrorists are available in abundance and inexpensive as a dime a dozen—many (human bombs walking) are already here in US.
America! We‘re going to get hit again, sucker-punched, and badly bloodied in the nose. Another surprising nose bleed will gush profusely as in the tragedy of 9/11
