Hi, Sara !

Have I ever claimed to be original? No, never! So don't be surprised if I tend to say truisms.

Now you ask : "Once again, I ask, what then, who then, are your solutions? the Russians? That would have to be my conclusion based on your robust defense of Stalin and perpetual condemnation of the US and other western countries. Perhaps you should use your truth to project the realities of the future more rather than the horrors of the past?"

If Stalin were living today, Islam would have no chance at all and not only in Russia. Do you know how many mosques Stalin have destroyed and how many imams he sent to hell or how he wanted to punish Turkey ?

Anyway, do you frankly believe that we can have a future disconnected from the past ? I assert we can't and an attempt to build a future not rooted in the past is in advance doomed to failure. For what is the past unless the soil in which the seeds of the future are burgeoning? Can't you reasonably grow any plant in any soil ? Can have have any future from any past?

In my opinion without a revolution in the US nothing will change at all and the proverb coined by ibn Khaldun "The past resembles the futureI more than one drop of water resembles another" will best describe our future. Given today's constallation of forces the future that is ahead will be nothing but a repetion of the horrors of the past.

It is all up to the American people to bring about a radical change, first inside the US and then in the world. We need an American Spring much more than any fake Arab spring. The regime change must take place in the US first with traitors that are ruling and ripping off this country jailed or better put before a firing squads and true patriots like Mathew Dooley having a say in Washington. I can see no other way put if you want to avoid the future planned by ibn Khaldun or Zbigniew Brzezinski.
