I think Fred got a few things right but the overall picture wrong.

Just because a stunned people don't immediately send the forces to the middle east means nothing.I think Fred seriously misreads the quietness.

Some people, in the face of adversity, quietly buckle down and do what has to be done first. This is where US etc is now.

Then after the information gathering and intelligence gathering, I think you will see a few sparks, maybe too many, maybe more than even Fred wants to see.
It's a scary thing taking a course of action that has a very good chance of starting WW3. The US are right to take their time and think carefully.

By the way, I am writing this very quietly.
