Middle east not listening...or impotent

Reader comment on item: Israel Has a War to Win

Submitted by PDM (United States), Jul 21, 2006 at 11:13

When the civilized world (United States) demanded unconditional surrender from Japan, the Japanese scoffed to their own demise. Now we have ignorant people who have not only forgotten that story, but they can't even understand the warning that removing Saddam Hussein actually represents!

The United States IS deliberately (and rightly so) instigating a fight from the terrorist populations (will they ever learn? or do they have the "Cool Hand Luke" syndrome?). Up til now they are too cowardly to attack the US again (maybe they are waiting for a change in president?), but make no mistake - the next attack against the US will unleash more destruction than the pathetic UN Secretary Janitor could ever hope to prevent.

The only intellectually stable argument for the actions of the people of the middle east is that they truly wish to become martyrs for their people thusly: After WWII the US and allies destroyed the enemy and rebuilt them to become major economic powers. If the US destroys the middle east, it will feel so guilty that it will also build them into prosperity. Except - if we destroy ALL we won't have to worry about rebuilding anything for anyone because there won't be anyone left! FREE OIL!
