"The only thing i disagree with is the "what good is history if we see it as an irrepresable past"?, with the good comes the bad, this is the foundation upon which our society is built... its how we think, something is either good or bad..... for example..... we title some people in the world to be saints, if we call someone a saint we have created a sinner.... now we have to go condemn someone out there as a sinner, because the saint can not be with out the sinner. They are both part of one interpretation. As is the good and bad in history....."

could you rewrite that. Mayby I'm just slow but I have no clue what that means. And I do agree that establishing a democracy in the Middle East is next to impossible.

Submitting....
