2nd Amendment in the Middle East

How does the Middle East look for personal freedoms? Do people have the inalienable right to protect themselves? Should they?
The question arose this morning as I mused on why billions of dollars worth of weapons have been shipped into the desert testing ground of the muddled east over the last thirty plus years. Fast and Furious was meant as a set up to take away the right to arm and protect ones self in the United States a few years ago but yet we look at the middle east and do not see weapons being taken away from terrorists. We see the opposite. They receive as many weapons as they need and there is no problem in their funding.
The citizens there could probably use personal protection and help avoid some problems.
Of course there is the heavy weaponry, tanks, fifty thousand dollar pick up trucks converted for terrorist military use that somehow make it from production to the battlefield either driving out of the plant, dropped off by a transport plane or otherwise. One needs to wonder how they received so many tools for destruction. Many hard working people around the world take out a sixty month loan to buy the trucks that these people seem to obtain for free.
Could it be these types of reasons?
“Oops we lost 10,000 surface to air missiles when we staffed people with hand guns and orders to stand down to guard them in the bak yard of the people that we do not want to arm”-(Benghazi)
“I am calling on Congress to debt finance 500 million dollars to fight ISIL”- (POTUS)
“We need open borders; never mind the ‘global’ war on terror”- (many politicians)
WHAT CHILD PLAYS A WAR GAME AND DOES NOT WALL THEIR CITY?
WHAT CHILD PLAYS A WAR GAME AND DOES NOT DENY ENEMIES WEAPONS?
It is all too obvious that it is backwards day for global governance.
Imagine the citizens in the Middle East having a home, job, car, food, entertainment, and freedom of expression, religion, and equal rights with the ability to protect their own home and family.
Today’s reality is a West burdened by debt to flood the Middle East with a war in their own backyard. Kids and the family dog have no room in a backyard that has craters and empty ammo shells raining down over the spot where a hammock could have been.
When the young people of the middle east and the young people of the West realize that it is not the everyday person that created this reality then perhaps the correct people will be held accountable.
It may not be pretty to change these realities however someday the ones who pulled the levers to create this scenario at the expense of all others may have a hard night ahead of them for a change.
