In order to bring these wayward nations into the global community of nations, to obey international laws and humanitarian standards, to elevate the millions of its populations out of poverty, as well as to create self-governing, sovereign and progressive institutions in these Middle-Eastern countries.

Capitalism is but a means to an end, and the United States, in time, probably wouldn’t mind the idea of a Middle-East that didn’t explode in sectarian violence every few minutes. Stability is the main motivator for the West’s interest in the Middle-East, so perhaps some support to individuals publicly advocating for the secular, liberal change the West desires wouldn’t be such a bad thing.

Acknowledging the presence and actions of alternative opposition groups would naturally make a rational and informed person question the extent and cost of similar actions that we as a singular nation should understake.
