Reader comment on item: Still Asleep After Mumbai

Submitted by Jay (United States), Dec 10, 2008 at 23:19

Dr Pipes asks, "What will rise Westeners from their stupor,name the enemy and fighy the war to victory?The answer is simple.Nothing.They showed that it took 45 million dead before Germany was defeated in WWII. And todays Europe must now deal with a Muslim population numbering near 10%.

The answer is nothing really will rise Westeners from their stupor. What will rise Westeners from theit stupor to see that Iranian-Syrian Lebanon,has been permitted to attain 40,000 missles against Israel ,on the Western led UN watch.?What will rise Westeners from their stupor to see that Iran is nearing nuclear capability and will use it against Israel and perhaps themselves.The answer is the same.Nothing.Its like the financial meltdown going on.You either "early and in time"identify and stop the problem ,or you do nothing and beg for mercy.Westerners and their friends have like become beggers with bank accounts.And even that is shrinking.
