TIME ‘Person of the Year’: Barack Obama

Donovan Slack, Politico, December 19, 2012

TIME has selected President Barack Obama as its Person of the Year for 2012.

Managing editor Richard Stengel said Obama is not only a political figure, but a cultural one who personifies a “new American.”

“There has been much talk of the coalition of the ascendant—young people, minorities, Hispanics, college-educated women—and in winning re-election, Obama showed that these fast-growing groups are not only the future but also the present,” Stengel wrote.

  • Barack Obama joins an exclusive club of Time persons of the year, that includes me (2006).

    • MikeofAges

      Hey, me too. Twice. Baby Boomer — 1966. Internet Content Contributor — 2006. Unfortunately, growing up in Mr. Obama’s neighborhood, I didn’t become a Middle American until much later than the year,1969, when the Middle American was Time’s Person of the Year..

  • blitzen51

    Now I know why I do not read Time magazine anymore.

    • OlderWoman

      When I get it I shred it into lot of pieces so it’s unreadable. I dump it in the trash can in the lobby where I live. I won’t share that trashy magazine with anyone. I’m making a statement about Time.

      • plato102

        Why do you get the magazine if you’re not going to read it?

        • OlderWoman

          It’s addressed to my father. He was deceased in 2006. Don’t know how they got his name. It came to my address beginning two years ago. Naturally they ‘remind’ me to pay for ‘my subscription’.

  • StillModerated

    Uh say, Barry, what big ears you have.

    Obama represents the Bizarro America that is the complete opposite of everything that America was intended as, should, and could have been.

            I love it. They laughed at and parodied George Wallace when he talked about all the “pseudo- intellectuals” that walked around DC with the attaché cases. “They probably got nothin’ in those attaché cases but peanut buttuh and jelleh sandwiches.” I used the quotes although I’m not sure if they were his exact words. But close enough. I sorry that he underwent that Epiphany after he was shot. Because every thing that he said and predicted are what with are living with today. RIP George! History has already vindicated you.

          • George? Hell,history has vindicated Adolf!

  • WmarkW

    After going from complete unknown nobody to the Nobel Peace Prize in five years, there’s no real way to honor the man anymore.

    • OlderWoman

      He ‘won’ the Nobel based on nothing. The guy had done absolutely nothing noteworthy. If I remember correctly, he got it shortly after becoming ‘president’. Kind of like Al Gore’s ‘winning’ it on false science. The Nobel means nothing.

      • Rosebud

        Well, that’s not completely true. His administration did kill Osama bin Laden. You’ve got to give the guy points for that.

        Other than that, what else has he done for white America?

        • Triarius

          They probably had bin Laden pinned down for months, then waited for the right time to kill him, politically. Just like the Contra-Iran with Carter. Their release was negotiated well before they were released, it’s not even denied anymore.

          But even if this is not the case, he pulled no trigger nor planned any attack. The Joint Chiefs of Staff and commanders did it. Obama just gave the “okay”.

          I don’t say Donald Trump built some building because he signed off on it.

          • Pelayo

            ” The Joint Chiefs of Staff and commanders did it. Obama just gave the “okay”.”

            Really!! Why all this credit? Remember him at the State of the UNion address walking around patting certain people on the back and saying “Good job tonight!” Of course it was the hook that got everyone’s attention. The killing of Obama was nothing but symbolism over substance. Obama was in charge of anything. Did anyone think that after that night al Qaeda would just fade away and that from then on, our lives would be an endless Hallmark Christmas movie?

        • All he had to do is say “yes.” What kind of person elected President of the United States wouldn’t have in that same situation? I’ll give you a hint: The President who turned down OBL’s scalp multiple times: Rhymes with Cill Blinton.

          But I will give Obama this much, and this is Steve Sailer material: He somehow developed a deep inherent mistrust of Pockeystahn in his early life, such that he probably had an inking as far back as the fall of 2008 (see the Presidential debate with McCain) that the Pakistani Deep State was hiding OBL. He said in that debate that he’d incur into Pockeystahn to get OBL, but we all laughed because we thought he meant 400,000 ground troops, and not the way it actually turned out, a simple special forces smash and grab. That and Obama said yes in spite of Valerie Jarrett three times trying to talk him out of it.

          However, the information which led to OBL’s last living whereabouts being discovered was extracted with enhanced interrogation techniques that Obama slandered as “torture,” mainly from shaking it out of KSM at GTMO, along with a decade of puzzle piece assembly, and some lucky breaks. Another troubling factor is that nabbing OBL didn’t end AQ, because AQ isn’t a top down Weberian corporation with OBL as its CEO, it’s basically a brand, an imagery, and Obama and Co was lulled into thinking that AQ was done when OBL was dumped in the ocean. That’s why when Benghazi happened, they did everything they could to cover up AQ, because telling the truth would have borked Obama’s election season narrative.

          • Rosebud

            True. But unlike our 42nd President, Obama actually went and avenged the nearly 3,000 Americans who perished on 9/11. If Clinton could have done it, then why didn’t he?

            Look, I’m no supporter of Obama due to his politics, but let’s give credit where credit is due, shall we?

          • IstvanIN

            How did Obama avenge anyone? Please explain.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            Navy SEALs did that. President Oogabooga did not.

          • Rosebud

            And who gave the order for the SEALs to go and do it? Again, give credit where credit is due, please.

          • wattylersrevolt

            The US should have stayed out of Afghanistan completely. All that had to be done is to shut all muslim immigration down to 0 and kick all the muslims out. Then there would never be another terrorist attack carried out by a angry young muslim male on US soil.

            Millions of Native Born White American jock snifffing males addicted to fantasy are 100 percent responsible for 9/11…9/11 was completely avoidable. Why did it happen then? Millions of Native Born White American Males had more important things to do..such as jock sniffing and fantasy football..what a bunch of pussies. The bombing of the Afghan civilian population has done nothing but created more recruits for AL Queda. And I know for a fact, they these young Afghan Men and Young Pakistani Men have been allowed into the US.

            The real culprits in 9/11 are millions of fat stupid jock sniffing chickenhawk White Males. Since 9/11. The muslim population in the US has increased by one million. I’ll even let Paul Craig Roberts quote me on this one.
            I mean, how dumb can you get?

          • TiredOfLibs

            You seem to have a fixation with “jock sniffing”

          • MikeofAges

            It’s just a metaphor. I’m not sure what for. But I’m pretty sure it’s not complimentary. I suppose, actually, that it alludes to the idea of ineffectual person who is involved in insipid hero worship.

          • Rosebud

            No, the people ultimately responsible for the September 11 attacks are the morons up in Washington, DC. who’ve apparently forgotten our 1st President (George Washington’s) parting message for America to practice neutrality and stay the heck out of other nations’ affairs.

            America would be in a lot better shape if at least ONE of our so-called leaders had heeded that sound, common sense approach to foreign policy.

          • josh

            Obama had to be dragged kicking and screaming to make the call to kill Osama. He literaslly had no choice;imagine if his waffling had allowed Osam to escape-again.

          • shmo123

            All Obama had to do was say yes. The NSA and CIA had been tracking the guy for years. It was only a matter of ok’ing the strike. I have read though that Biden was against it. The same Biden who stood up at the Dem. convention yelling about Osama Bin Laden being dead. Hypocrite.

          • TiredOfLibs

            Obama actually voted as Senator, vehemently against the very policies that led to Bin Laden. Policies enacted under GWB.

          • Mike Lane

            Not to sound redundant, but it was the Bush administration who organized the hunt for bin Laden. All Obama did was answer a phone call from the Pentagon.

          • Pelayo

            I want to know why they wrapped OBL up like a mummy and buried him at sea without offering us any visual confirmation that the corpse was indeed that of Osama.

          • Puggg

            The official reason is that he didn’t want to enrage Muslims unnecessarily. But he did show pics of the dead body to enough important politicians. There are just too many who confirm verbally it’s Osama for me to think it’s not really Osama.

          • OlderWoman

            Because it wasn’t Osama. He’d been dead for years. It was probably a dummy. This has been a fraud perpetrated on the American people.

        • dazed

          You really believe the story that they blasted him into the middle of the ocean? He died in 2001.

          • Pelayo

            I’m willing to believe anything at this point! Is there any evidence for that? The only thing that gives me a little doubt is that the Navy Seals would be a participant in such a hoax.

          • OlderWoman

            Unwittingly they could. Obama’s might have had his minions on that mission to do the cover-up. They could have used anyone’s body in place of Osama’s/Tim Osman’s.

        • anarchyst

          There’s no proof that usama bin laden was killed . . .

      • Frank

        It is still based on nothing other than being black, he won a Nobel prize for just being a negro. It goes to show what a fraud the Nobel prize is, it just a liberal award tool. No one killed Osama bin Laden as the guy died of kidney disease in December 2001 and he had nothing to do with the operation called 9/11.

      • George

        Obama’s Nobel means nothing, you mean.

        Nobel prizes given to real scientists for real discoveries have value.

        Unfortunately, those winners’ prizes are cheapened when the name ‘Nobel Laureate’ can be attached to those undeserving of the honour.

    • Kostoglotov

      The Nobel Peace Prize is simply a statement from the cultural Marxists who run the Peace Prize Committee that “We think you’re cool.” It no longer has anything to do with achievement in bringing about peace, or any other form of concrete accomplishment.

  • Magician

    Well if a prize as precious and prestigious as the Nobel Prize can be given to someone who has done absolutely nothing to deserve it, simply because he is a black person, then I am not expecting much from “Person of the year” chosen by a few editors of a magazine.

  • Francis Galton

    Never in human history has a single malignant narcissist been drenched with so much “narcissistic supply” as Barack Obama. This man is incredibly dangerous, especially to right-wing Whites. We’ve come a long way from a Citizen-Statesman like George Washington (who didn’t even want to serve a second term, and absolutely refused to serve a third) to this tin-pot wannabe Bantustan dictatorette named Barack Hussein Barry Lolo Soetoro Obama Davis X, Jr.

      It’s no coincidence that this picture of Obama is similar to Lincoln’s visage on penny. And how now have Speilberg’s “Lincoln” in theaters. The propaganda machine is really locking in now.

      • Don’t forget Hitler

        • Dude

          If Obama were a “Nazi” like the kosher conservatives like to claim, he would’ve fixed the economy by now. No wonder Hitler didn’t need to hide behind bullet proof glass when driving around among the people.

          • Pelayo

            Well his total confiscation of all arms had something to do with that.

          • Dude

            Hitler has been accused of many crimes he didn’t commit. http://www.natvan.com/national-vanguard/assorted/gunhitler.html

          • Fredrik_H

            Nonsense. Gun laws in nazi Germany were quite lax. It was the allies who confiscated all weapons in 1945 and owning private weapons was not yet legal again until 1956.

          • There’s a supposed and rebuked Hitler quote about “how gun control in (insert the year) will make us all safer.” The reason the quote is false is because there was no major gun control legislation in GNSWP-era Germany in the year in question. It’s all a fabrication of the politically correct modern day “official” Second Amendment crowd to pander to Jews, in a lame attempt to get the Jewish American body politic to reverse course on gun control.

          • anarchyst

            The “1968 Gun Control Act” is a verbatim copy of the “1938 German Gun Control Act”

          • Sorry, I’m not buying that. I’m surprised that you of all AR regulars believe it.

          • anarchyst

            Read and compare the two … you will find that they are identical. Chris Dodd’s “daddy” (I forget his name) was one of the principle originators of the 1968 gun control act and used the 1938 German gun control act as a “model” Check it out for yourself. Best regards

    • Dan James

      Viewed with reasonable (and deserved) skepticism, most official versions of his life
      do not ring very true. It appears gratutitious to assume that race, as such, was ever
      of much importance to him in his formative years. His relationship with Frank Davis,
      for example, is “known” to have centered upon the young “Black” Barry needing the
      tutelege that his white grandparents (and mother, as well) could not provide but that
      Frank Davis, a Black communist, could provide. Yet, I’d bet 2;1 that the essence of
      the tutelge involved homosexuality–not race? At any rate, there is a sense not merely
      of narcissism but of the hollowness of a con man.

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    He “personifies a ‘new American,'” there’s a “coalition of the ascendant—young people, minorities, Hispanics,” “these fast-growing groups are not only the future but also the present.”

    • fakeemail

      I think many people are awake. It’s just that they see no unity; no movement or party. All they see is the defeated and pathetic GOP and the feckless Tea Party which crumples at the first manufactured accusation of “racism.”

      “Something in the water.” I’m starting to think that general from Dr. Strangelove was right about fluoride being a communist plot to destroy our precious bodily fluids.

        • GeneticsareDestiny

          When I was still a liberal, I spent a good deal of time interacting with the GLBT crowd. At least half of the women who claim to be lesbians are lying and later go on to date men when they get past 25 or so. The lying rate for bisexuals is even higher.

          There are real lesbian and bisexual women, but the rates are greatly inflated by young straight women who are extremely liberal and are super pro-gay convincing themselves that they are lesbians/bisexuals as well.

    • TheTRUTH

      Whenever I get the same feeling, I take comfort in this poem, which I believe describes our culture perfectly. It’s not in our culture to act out prematurely, we bide our time, we do not depend on government to act, and once we act, we do not hold back.

    Puhlease, Time, show some imagination. This guy has gotten enough marginally earned accolades already. How about NBA star LeBron James? He’s the one guy I can think of who in the last 365 days has actually pulled himself together and stood and delivered, in however trivial an arena. I know Barack never will.

    What did this guy just say about the so-called “fiscal cliff”? “

    “After what we’ve gone through over the past several months, a
    devastating hurricane and now one of the worse tragedies in our memory,
    the country deserves the folks to be willing to compromise for the
    greater good.”:

    What he means is that everyone should compromise with him. He doesn’t mean he should make the accommodations.. Frankly, I think the congressional leaders should pull themselves together, pass a bipartisan bill, and override this sad sack’s veto if he has the nerve to indeed veto it just it doesn’t meet his idiosyncratic specifications. The president has never acted more likely a snobby biracial intellectual from the streets of Hyde Park, with a head full of cloudy, implausible ideas, than he has today. And I do know.

    More evidence that mega-corporaions are the force behind Native Born White American race-replacement. Verizon is another example. This is what Jared should be talking about in his public talks and MSM appearances.
    Native Born White American race-replacement is driven by the low wage labor strategy of the mega corporations..as Gore Vidal would say:the owners of the Republican and Democratic party.
    For those of you who watched the 12 12 12 Sandy Concert…did you see 70 year old Roger Daltry and the 70 pedaphile Pete Townsend perform “see me..here you..right behind you” from Tommy. Scenes of Sandy devastation flashed up on a giant screen…just as Roger Daltry..who looked like an old granny on stage…was singing “see me ..feel” a giant photo of the War Criminal-Corporate Toadie-Kenyan Foreigner hugging a Sandy victim..”I feel your pain”… flashed up on the screen. Roger Daltry and Pete Townsend are such loathsome filth. I thought vdare.com would have covered this by now.

    Obama has only succeeded to be twice-president, Nobel Prize winner, and Time’s Man of the Year, because he is a black man. I can’t see how any white man (or white woman) could succeed like that if they possessed only Obama’s insignificant achievements. Sarah Palin had more going for her, but the media trashed her mercilessly. Although Obama’s white maternal relations were responsible for him actually having a good childhood, his black paternal genes were all that were responsible for him winning the presidency.

The demographic shift, the new electorate, the young, the alien etc. are all merrily toasted to much cork popping and huzzahed to the fanfare of New Year’s Eve horns, gala streamers, and confetti. No sober thinking or reflecting about the morning after hangover when someone has to do the dirty work of cleaning up after the party and then get on with the work of the day.

    It’s the “cult of personality” that was prevalent in communist societies that has “come home to roost” in the United States. Those of us in “flyover country KNEW what the o’bama was from the “get go”, but those on the east and west coasts along with the “mainstream media” have made a demi-god out of him. From chris mathew’s “tingle down his leg” to him not being “vetted” at all by the government or news media,it is clear that we are on a downward spiral FAST!

  • Kostoglotov

    A “new American” who seals all his records, and has spent his entire life lying about who and what he is?

    I’m also reminded of that Newsweek George Washington mockup. Wasn’t George Washington supposed to be the man who could not tell a lie? Everything about Obama is a lie, even his name. No one knows who he really is, or if he’s even a US citizen, and he plans to keep it that way. This is ‘the new American?’

    • FourFooted_Messiah

      Yep. The one who sneaks into the country and says “Me American, me Canadian, you give me now.”

  • William Rooks

    Great photo! They completely disguised the fact he is a mulatto, and made him look completely black. Almost like they hate white people, no? Actually, I think the picture is pretty creepy. Fitting that Darkness should be seen IN Darkness. Makes him look evil, which he is.

    • FourFooted_Messiah

      Yes, sometimes a trip into darkness can be illuminating in and of itself.

  • SoCal LoCal

    Obama personifies a “new American?” NO! Scratch that, he personifies a non-American.

    And that new fangled coalition? All white groups voted in their majority for Romney. Young and old; male and female; well educated or less so.

    It is not at all a surprise that Barry-O is POTY again. POTY is the person who “for better or worse most affected the news in the year ending.” That is the criteria that got Stalin, Hitler, and the Ayatollah named MOTY. So if not Barry-O, then who?

  • shmo123

    Perhaps it’s fitting that Obama gets the “Person of the Year” award. He’s already proven he isn’t “Man” enough to win that title.

  • Release his transcripts now!

    When this creepy lying sociopath who now calls himself Barrack Hussein Obama leaves the White House (if he and Moochelle ever do), we will be treated to continuing news coverage on him until the day he is planted in the ground, and it won’t even stop there. For the Thousand Year Reich that Obama is creating will honor his name and deeds for the next thousand years. His picture will be on every street corner, every government building, our money (whatever it’s worth by the time he destroys it), in our school rooms and school books, in the new pledge of allegiance (I pledge allegiance to Barrack Hussein Obama and to the country for which he stands), our new national motto will change from “In God we trust” to “In Obama we trust.” All history before him will be expunged from the history books, The calendar will be changed to start with the year of Obama’s Birth–that is I think 1960 will become the Year O. Look the zero even looks like the first letter of Obama’s name. Destiny brought BHO to us. At some point in the future, after his alleged death, he will be revealed to have risen from the dead after three days and floated off into the sky. Like Elvis, he will be seen in truck stops and whore houses from Maine to California. The Time Man of the Year and the Nobel Peace Prize are just the beginning. Suicide anyone? No, don’t give up or give in. Fight this crap and don’t take let anyone shut you up when you challenge the “Magical Negro” hypothesis.

    • FourFooted_Messiah

      Oh, so you mean he’s Hizzoner Coleman A. Young (late former mayor of Detroit)’s reincarnation? That’s really scary, man.

  • and the long awaited : TIME MAN OF THE YEAR

    SATAN aka Lucuifer aka obama the half breed muslim pimp

  • wattylersrevolt

    This should be seen as an open declaration of war against millions of Natve Born White Americans. And it is a declaration of a race war..comming directly from the mega-corporations. But there is also something additional going on here in the case of Richard Stengel:it is also an example of rootless urban cosmopolitan ethnic warfare against the majority Native Born White American Christian Population.
    It is a delibrate and publicly stated policy of race-replacement. A revolt against it is justified.

    • redfeathers

      I always enjoy your comments.

  • virginiacity

    Obama is driving whites insane. He knows exactly what he is doing because he is anointed master of deception smuggled in from the dark side forces to change the mentalty of Europeans and destroy them. Why? They are the chosen blessed Shem race. He is the possessed evil cursed race. Even little white children are targets now of his demonic powers.
    He knew what he was doing to set up and kill the Ambassador and 3 whites in Benghazi and then send his minions to lie for him. Was that his idea of gun control?

    None of these horrific white serial killings would have occurred under Romney, Bush, etc. We all know this. Now the Creature will move to take away your firearms so you will be like a hungry lion in a lion pit. The 666 Beast is upon you. in full force.

  • quick_quip

    So who reads Time?

  • josh

    Welcome to the USSA! TIME is a piece of trash hardly wiorth wrapping your garbage in.Ironic that the “fastest-growing” “ascendant” Amerikans dont even lnow TIME exists,let alone reading this YKW feces!

    • Puggg

      Funny you just said that. I’ve got Rush on at work, (really low volume), and he lead with an interview that the editor of Time did with Charlie Rose. He told Rose that Time picked Obama as their person of the year precisely because he won a Presidential election essentially on the backs of lobotomized low information votertards. The unspoken factor all around is race demographics.

  • FourFooted_Messiah

    Didn’t they have a computer as “person of the year” once? Shows you how much credibility that has any more.

    I, for one, would be a lot quicker to recognize a chimp as a person than a robot.

    Why did TIME not have Washoe, Kanzi or Koko as “person of the year” during the height of the primate language experiments? Because leftist darling Noam Chomsky hates the idea of anything but humans using symbols?

  • LHathaway

    “this picture of Obama is similar to Lincoln’s visage on penny”

    The penny is the lowest, most devalued unit of our entire monetary system. . . expect black scholars to be busy publishing on this Time’s piece for years to come. . .

    • FourFooted_Messiah

      No. No it has no resemblance whatsoever to my eye.

  • shmo123

    Moderator: I see that sometimes, a post will have a certain number of “likes” and return later and see that number is far less. What’s with that?

  • GeorgeRA

    A magazine owned by people that hate White America name a half black half white man who hates America “Man of The Year”. Yeah that sounds right.

  • Bobbala

    Obam is a member of one of the most exclusive clubs in history …

    The Global Islamic population is approximately 1,200,000,000; that is ONE BILLION TWO HUNDRED MILLION or 20% of the world’s population. They have received the following Nobel Prizes:

    1988 – Najib Mahfooz

    1978 – Mohamed Anwar El-Sadat
    1990 – Elias James Corey
    1994 – Yaser Arafat:
    1999 – Ahmed Zewai



    1960 – Peter Brian Medawar
    1998 – Ferid Mourad


    • Bobbala

      Anyone else find it ironic that over half the muslim nobel prizes are for peace?

      • FourFooted_Messiah

        Yeah, espeically since “muslim” and “peace” are not two words that go together well.

        • Bobbala

          To be fair, Sadat did pay for his with his life.

          • MikeofAges

            Sadat, I believe, reasoned that it was better for one soldier to die one time than for thousands to die uselessly again and again fighting over the same patch of sand. For thinking too much like a Christian knight, for being a brave man willing to die so others would not have to, he had to go. He stood above his whole civilization. According to them, therefore, a traitor.

  • Despite all odds our President prevailed in gaining re-election. He still has an uphill battle fighting a Red House which has blocked his every move in an attempt to squash his goals of bringing the Middle Class equal pay, women’s rights, gay rights and affordable healthcare. The Bush Administration drove our economy into a swift nose dive and Obama is still the patsy. Watch conservative hands paint him in Blackface with a visual commentary of how Barack has been bamboozled at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/bamboozling-obama.html

  • GeorgeRA

    We have been told that to succeed you obey the laws, work hard, and get a good education and you’ll make it to the top. In other words duty, honor, and country. Obama the guy without a birth certificate would beg to differ.

  • Dennis

    Actually, I have no problem with this. If Romney had won, he would have been Time’s man of the year.

  • PesachPatriot

    Mike of ages…the problem with the fertile crescent/levant/near east…sandy warzone hellhole, whatever you would like to call it, is that it has always idolized and elevated extremists and murdered its moderates, since the days of the bible….Sadat and Rabin were both killed by people whose entire existence needs religious conflict in order to be validated…peace and the problems of normal boring civilized countries downgrades them from holy warriors striding across the pages of history to petty politicians trying to pave roads, increase tourism and organize garbage collection. No more media fawning over their every word, no more UN conferences about the “crisis in the middle east”, no more being at the top of every american president’s agenda….Just the dull and mundane activities of your average politico anywhere else.

    In the 90’s there was a joke that both jewish and arab merchants told in the jerusalem market…”A tourist asks a carpet seller if the Oslo accords will bring war or peace…the carpet seller had lived in jerusalem all his life and told the tourist that it would probably cause war because both the Israeli and Palestinian leaders depend on war to get on the news, to get re-elected and to be big shots at the UN…otherwise they are just the rulers of small, unimportant countries with no oil and lots of economic and political problems…This carpet seller was known as the biggest optimist in all of jerusalem”…the joke is funnier in hebrew but you get the gist of it.

    Also, most of the arabs and jews who have the brains, ambition and money try to move out to less crazy violence-prone regions of the world. Boca is a lot safer than Bnei Barak and doesn’t have exploding buses and most arabs find Dearborn Michigan a lot nicer than Damascus Syria as of late. This is why arabs come to america and run stores in the worst urban hoods and feel like their life has actually improved significantly….This also leaves behind a core of religious fanatics who will not budge from their sacred rocks and olive groves for all the money in the world and will fight to the death at the drop of a hat over things most westerners would find silly like stupid youtube movies….Both sides have given up on political solutions over the last 3 decades or so and are increasingly looking towards ever more fanatical apocalyptic religion to give them answers politicians cannot. The problems in that part of the world are intractable and unsolvable and have been so since the days of the Roman empire…America needs to bow out and let it be China’s problem this century. A Chinese imperial regime might actually be the one thing that could get the Middle East under control.
