Dear Edgar,

again, i completely agree with your sentiments, but i suspect the US is a little wary about the growth of China and India, yes?

Peace without appeasement? Absolutely. But this does not mean that you can ride rough shod over any country you deem to be an 'enemy'. Come on Edgar, the whole world knows now that the reson for the war in Iraq had NOTHING to do with 9/11. Why didn't the US go after bin laden when it had the chance? Why dosn't it do so now? Good men and women on all sides are dying in Iraq, for what? According to US intelligence agencies. the war in Iraq has unleashed a "global jihadist movement" and the last thing it has done (in fact it hasn't) is liberate anyone.

regards, Raheel
