So there are several things I don't agree with or maybe you are just unaware of them
So Western intervention in the ME has primarily been about two main reasons, to ensure security around oil and the humanitarian precedent
You cannot ignore either of these points for different reasons. Lets be clear when the West gets involved in the ME and various conflicts in the region it is now patently obvious that the outcome won't be a Western style system of Democracy. This outcome is a good thing by the way as Western countries offer there citizens the best quality of life...so this isn't about the superiority of Western ideology as its basically been proven in the last 200 years that Western governments and what they believe in are the most effective governments in the world.
The ME needs to follow its own system of Democracy and yes there is still work to be done but end of the day the overall objective is to uplift the quality of life of the citizens of the various countries in the ME and make there governments and rulers more accountable. This should be a universal goal that we should all support
Now back to intervention in the ME and the justification for it from a Western perspective.
Oil....of course the supply and security of the oil use to be paramount to the growth and sustainability of the economies of all countries in the world. And since the majority of oil comes from the ME and the rate of oil production is controlled by OPEC anything that could disrupt this oil supply would be more than enough reason to justify intervention in the ME. So don't assume people really believe that " getting involved in the ME is about helping the Arabs achieve there full potential " ....of course thats not the only reason. The economic impact of having the global oil supply disrupted would be disastrous for the whole world. I would expect the world to intervene on some levels to ensure stability of the region....this is obvious
But things have now changed as far as the oil supply is concerned. The USA is now the worlds biggest producer of oil this has fundamentally changed the urgency of when the West will intervene in the ME
So now intervention is also about the humanitarian reason, for example the USA only started the recent airstrikes against ISIS because ISIS were going to basically massacre the Yazidi's who were trapped on Mount Sinjar
So I don't support this view that the West " should just stay out of the ME" as I have mentioned two reasons, oil security and human rights, that do justify Western involvement in some of the ME conflicts. This cannot just be ignored
Please Croatia, stop being racist! Now mutti Merkel is sad again
We may ridicule them , or call them fascists but Croatia and Hungary are the only ones with any sense. Even if they are traditionally close to that ideology, they are doing the right thing in this matter. They are guarding the borders responsibly and registering migrants by force.
But protecting a nation's soverignity is racist and xenophobic! The feelings of people seeing dead people on facebook matters more than any principle!
Kissinger said about Oil in ME, the same Albright said about minerals in Russia
They must be OURS! Lifes don't matter!
