The coming revolution struggle for freedom in the Middle East.
Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Fox News contributor Judith Miller thank you -- both for being here.
Should war games as they are all being carried out in the region right now is United States is enlarging its presence.
Is this a wise idea.
I think it's an essential idea I mean we have to be prepared for what ever happens in the region and at the moment.
I've never seen the region in such turbulence he's serious coming apart the Red Cross on Sunday declared -- the civil war finally finally.
Dead we have Iran waiting to see what the west is prepared to do or not prepared to do about its nuclear.
Not -- weapons but nuclear program.
This is a very very dangerous moment in the Middle East.
-- -- -- -- Yes -- is right on actually when we look at the map we understand.
That we are not on the offensive data states deployment in the Arab supportive deployment in the region is basically on the defensive because the Iranian regime is playing -- big game.
It is -- had announced basically that if we intervene and Syria.
That would basically make it very difficult in the gulf that would deter the Arabs that would put a lot of pressure on international economic community as you know.
And that's why I think -- -- mean all these additional you know.
It's let me ask people.
Why in the world would the United States intervene in -- -- I don't think there's any sign that we're going to but I think we're now concerned about is that collapse of the Syrian regime.
And suddenly a lot of chemical weapons being in lord knows -- -- Because we have seen signs that these weapons -- you don't want to around the Obama administration today saying through signs of government that your going to be responsible for your right or.
That is one of the dumbest.
But I could imagine this administration saying to side.
Of whom they've told to get out again as they have done others there is such great effect we're we're which -- it's it's monstrous foreign policy.
And administration of that policy.
What in the world -- they thinking about.
Well I didn't I think they're thinking that they don't want to be involved for an American election especially.
In a civil war between the -- white regime a minority regime and the majority Sunni population.
And -- to what -- do they make and another you know blunder bust.
A -- -- bravado written declaration -- we'll hold you responsible for your chemical.
-- Yes a lot of statements over two years now 20112012.
We can't do -- Libya and Syria first of -- as Judith said this is an election year we can't begin a campaign we don't know -- that would end.
Second the Syrian regime is backed by the Iranian regime by pro Iranian politicians and Iraq and by Hezbollah.
And attack against asset basically means for regimes would counter attack.
He either against us in the gulf or against our allies the Turks and Hezbollah very difficult situation though.
Do you both -- call is I suspect you do -- In 2008 and a presidential campaign.
All of the heart being from this now president.
And his campaign organization over multilateralism.
And the absolute.
This Dane with which they in which they held.
-- contempt for the bush unilateralism.
What in the world is going on here they are doing precisely the same thing.
Well we have actually sad crap subcontracted.
Are Syria policy to Kofi Annan and the UN -- hoping that.
Annan will be able to find -- diplomatic solution.
People dead in Syria it.
And the Russians the illusion zero via -- and ever found for anything well no cooking and it's actually settled some very difficult conflicts but I don't think.
He's despite his great effort he's going to be able to settle this one.

The Disco fan and have any mine sweepers.
Carrier group asked which party in the first little as 300 monitors sitting in Syria you know whose mandate is expiring on Friday.
-- we must decide as a Friday whether or not we're going to extend the presence of those 300 people in Syria -- -- point well.
Does it occurred through this administration.
And US leadership.
That this is.
This is a -- -- that is being played right now.
Absolutely -- major strategic mistakes have been made by the -- over the past two years since the so called Arab Spring with regard Syria.
If you don't have a plan for the big guy for Iraq.
-- can't have a plan for Syria.
Because if intervene in Syria or have our allies and to be in Syria Iran and Iraq -- Hezbollah would intervene that's one problem the other problem.
Who -- we partnering within the region.
In Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood in Tunisia -- islamists not -- So by the end of this year gonna have a North Africa ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood or so and everything between Beirut and Tehran is fueled by and Iran -- regime unfortunate.
And as to northern Africa.
-- the reason for that is that -- heavily successful.
