This serves both as a great primer on the state of the Middle East and a reality check on how dire the situation there has become for Israel. Allen West spoke yesterday at a Town Hall after the announcement that the Muslim Brotherhood had been elected as the new president of Egypt and gave a very serious talk on what we are staring at in the Middle East, tying together different strands to show the consequences of different policy decisions from the UN no longer keeping peace in Lebanon to Obama choosing to ignore four-star Generals who said we needed to keep around 15k soldiers in Iraq.
