Not with 19 other nations to think about, a gnarly nest of dysfunction and despotism, sectarian violence and never-ending bloodshed from Pakistan to Yemen to Egypt that includes countries, like Lebanon and Jordan, feeling the direct effect of the horrific Syrian revolution. And the Gulf states. And the K-stans. And of course, Iran, always vying for supremacy in the Islamic world and a constant thorn for U.S. ambitions.
