I FULLY AGREE WITH YOUR COMMENTS, HOWEVER, I LIKE TO SEE MYSELF AS A PRAGMATIST. IN THE NEXT 10 TO 15 YEARS THERE WILL BE A WAR, AN ALL OUT WAR, AND THAT WILL BE DUE TO HUMAN VALUES THAT IRAN AND OTHER ARAB COUNTRIES EMBRACE. THE UNITED STATES IS NOT ANGELIC, AND WE HAVE OUR SHORTCOMINGS. BUT YOU WILL NEVER SEE A US TANK ROLLING DOWN BROADWAY TO PUT DOWN A DEMONSTRATION. FRANCE IS USELESS AND GERMANY IS LOOKING TO BECOME LIKE SWITZERLAND. SO WHO IS GOING TO STAND UP TO THE DESPOTS? PAKISTAN? THEY WOULD NEED PERMISSION FROM OSAMA BIN LADEN. IT'S UP TO THE US, BRITAIN, AUSTRALIA, AND ISRAEL. THAT'S IT. LET THE WORLD CONDEMN US---WHO CARES WHAT THE SAUDIS THINK? I AM 55 YEARS OLD, FOUGHT IN VIETNAM (WHICH WAS AN UNJUST CONFLICT) I WISH I COULD RE-ENLIST AND GO TO AFGHANISTAN TO DEAl with the taliban.FUNNY THING IS THAT THE WAHABBIS ARE BEHIND ALL THIS AND WE TURN A BLIND EYE. IT'S TIME THE US GOT TOUGH WITH ALL THESE DEMONS--THEN MAYBE PEACE CAN BREAK OUT
