Sure Fred, but what's it got to do with the CMC?

Reader comment on item: Israel Has a War to Win
in response to reader comment: Israeli-Arabs and Missiles

Sure Frederick, such things are daily fare in the conflicted Arab communities, not only in Israel but throughout the Arab, indeed, the Muslim world. There must be an intense embarassment in being one of the better-off Arabs. The McMuslims really do exist. They love McDonalds, American music, short skirts, lipstick. Even the oil sheiks. Where do they invest their money? In Islam? Or, the occasional medrassa to assuage their guilt. But the majority? In the West.

Our success is their success, our failure their failure. They do not want Bin Ladin to win. Even Bin Laden himself is probably invested through dummy companies in CNN, Time-Warner, KFC, God knows what else. On weekends he goes to the caves, like those guys who dress up and play our the battles of the American revolutionary wars. Hollywood fantasies. That doesn't mean he and his kind isn't dangerous. The Taliban were buffoons too, and so was Saddam. You can see it in their photos and paintings, sculptures. Delusional! But they brought down the Buddahs nevertheless. And they did 9/11 too.

But Fred! What has your post to do with my comparison of the present situation to the Cuban Missile Crisis?
