Default Re: The Middle East is in Flames

Maybe things have finally come to a head.... I've thought in the past that they were at a head and it turned out not to be true.

There are two mistakes that can be made in a scenario such as this. The idea is that you can go too far in opposite directions. A bad decision would make the situation worse and it could get beyond control. The other extreme, and just as bad, is to find a way to stabalize what the situation is right now and set the groundwork for it to continue indefinately without resolution, kind of like what happened in Korea 50 years ago. Eventually, it will come to a head again.

It's all the same, only the names will change. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.
