The topic of the Greater Middle or New Middle East has generated a lot of bytes not just from you guys along with yours truely here , I was reading some articles and one link led to another and I found myself in this forum . I started reading the participants discussion..... this snippet caught my eye and I thought it was ridiculous . It is one of the commenter's idea of a response to the plan to redraw the map of the ME in what would be suitable for the interests of the West under the guise of the pursuit of democracy and the redressing of colonial wrongs.
Here is the part I thought was funny, kudos to the guy he's got fantastic imagination:
"It would be wise to start with giving the south of California and Texas to
Mexico ,for example. The tip of Florida could go to Cuba. Parts of Montana,
Wyoming and Dakotas could go to a Free Land of Original Settlers. Wisconsin
could handle a Free German State of North America. New York should be an
independent city state governed by UN."
