The Contingency for Peace in the Middle East

With every plan, there is a contingency, and in the case of the Middle East, the contingency for peace is that the United States must amend our Constitution to create the additional layer of government over what already exists. The United States of America must choose to join the proposed international government. 

The United States has relied on regime change as a way to gain control of natural resources and strategic locations in various parts of the world. That power games has seemed to work, but there is always a backlash to the games, and the ultimate conclusion of the game came when George W. Bush attempted to topple Saddam Hussein with the preemptive strike. The ultimate conclusion of every game is when it is played on an innocent person. 

Rather than to gain control of Iraq's oil, the United States started a civil war and no one got control of the oil. Ripples of effects have gone out from this crisis to drag every person on the planet in some way into the crisis. 

This put us into a dilemma. We have been backed into a corner, and the two apparent options have been to continue to be backed into the corner or to come out fighting, and both options lead to a devolving global conflict. When you are backed into a corner, the solution is to do what is in everyone's best interest, and that is to join the growing number of people who have seen the international government as the solution to every crisis facing mankind, and become part of the international government.

In America, we must amend our Constitution.

First, our government must agree in theory to the plan for the international government rather than to wage war. All we must do is to let go of the power games that got us into trouble in the first place. 

Regime change is the first to go. 

In Syria, do we have to topple Bashar al Assad? Is the intelligence we got valid? This is what got us into trouble in Iraq. The intelligence was faulty. Under the Universal Law of Cause and Effect, if we topple a government, our own government will be toppled. The solution is to turn to the international government and to agree that every nation has the right to be sovereign and to choose its own government. 

Can we win in the Middle East? Yes. The first person to walk away from the conflict is the winner.
