Nope. The problem I'm referring to has got nothing to do with the middle east. In fact, it's got nothing to do with politics at all, at least not intrinsically.

But I'm amused to see you didn't notice it either.
"As long as it is admitted that the law may be diverted from its true purpose -- that it may violate property instead of protecting it -- then everyone will want to participate in making the law, either to protect himself against plunder or to use it for plunder. Political questions will always be prejudicial, dominant, and all-absorbing. There will be fighting at the door of the Legislative Palace, and the struggle within will be no less furious." - Bastiat, The Law
