Where is the president’s Middle East strategy?

I am weary of war; our people are past weary of being the world’s police. The whole Middle East is now enjoying the benefits of the current administration’s policy inexperience.

Libya is close to civil war, Egypt is in civil war, Iraq is slipping back into civil war, Lebanon, and Jordan are being rapidly destabilized and Syria is just the travesty with the most casualties.

Please explain to me and the American people, President Barack Obama, why launching American missiles to kill more people to punish different people for killing other people in a civil war without conclusive proof of who is responsible is a sound foreign policy?

Better yet, Mr. President, what is your Middle East foreign policy?
