Former President George H.W. Bush did a noble thing in views he shared about America’s role in the Middle East. I used to watch him on TV many years ago when he was in office. That exposure influenced my view of the world at one time. The comments he gave are the greatest insight available that we should never have been in the Middle East to the extent seen in the first decade of the 21st Century. His statements can be both healing and instructional regarding the error of involvement in the Middle East. The point of view he expressed may be a foundation for a true recovery that fosters a better world situation founded in peace.
