For the Middle East, if the president, let alone Congress, is going to seriously contemplate a new approach – one which promises to truly move forward the aspirations of its people – to the region, it is essential that this state of fragmentation and disunity is discarded. This Arab Winter must blossom into a genuine Arab Spring, and the resources, and true potential of this rich region fully realized. Until this new, united, forward-looking Middle East is achieved, complete with its 300 million plus consumers, why should the U.S. listen or work toward helping the region achieve its dreams of a brighter future? For whomever wins, congratulations, and congratulations to democracy. But the road ahead will not be a straightforward one.
