You should thank Allah every day for Hiroshima and Nagasaki - otherwise you would be speaking Japanese.

Vietnam was a mess because we weren't allowed to bomb the "sacred palm" fields and temples - from where the chi-com shot at our soldiers - we weren't allowed to invade North Vietnam - we didn't use an a-bomb or two. Our government and the PC of the day ran that war; no wonder we lost - and it's still a mess over there.

Take a look at where we DID win - after WWII, after Hiroshema and Nagasaki, the U.S. General Douglas McCarthur wrote Japan's Constitution - and today, they are THRIVING. The Japanese didn't bomb each other's fruit stands - they all worked toward the strong country they now have. That's one heck of a lot more than I can say for Sunnis and Shi'tes and Kurds in Iraq - although the Kurds (Kurdistan) is looking really good these days - and guess what - they are GRATEFUL to the U.S. for destroying Saddam.

The Jewish media had nothing to do with Saddam's bloody rule. Ridiculous.

Human Rights abuses - you say the West is the cause. Stop blindly believing Al-Jazeera and the Imams - use your computer and try and come up with some proof. Darfur was not caused by the West.

The U.S is the largest contributer to foreign AID (food, clothing, shelter, medicine, etc) than all other countries, in the world, combined.

So who "stepped on who's toe" first?

This is not the problem; the problem has to do with winning wars.

When's the last time you saw a Japanese suicide bomber?
