War’s Arab supporters bitter over its results
Resentment speaks volumes about U.S. standing in the Middle East

This was an excellent, if not deeply disturbing read. So many of the things echoed in this piece were things I'd either come to suspect or had ascertained from other reports and op-ed pieces over the last couple of years. This very succinctly lays it out in terms that you cannot mistake.

I think the thing that most bothers me about this is the notion of what this administration and the sheep that not only enable it but actively support it have done in the name of MY country to just absolutely decimate any good standing we had within the Arab community and indeed the world at large, be they in the Mideast or anywhere in the world. What has been done in Iraq, what is looming over Syria and Iran and who knows what else, it just makes me sick. We've become a laughingstock - a mockery - a complete sham. And rightly so in the eyes of the world community.

I want my country back, goddamnit.
