Reader comment on item: In Iraq, Stay the Course - but Change It
in response to reader comment: Retreat to the Nevada desert

Bader, The only thing Americans should appologize for is the barbaric incidents executed by the 50 cents recruits and their supervisors. Other than that, there is nothing to appologize about. Remember the Kurds, the Shiites and surrounding Arab states welcome the American invasion and blessed it. In fact, the Iraqis should thank the Americans for correcting backing Sadam by removing him, they should forgive and forget the mentioned incidents and continue living.

As for the retreat to Nevada, I disagree here. I would suggest the retreat to Saudi Arabia before it becomes all Wahabia and keep their bases in the Persian gulf states except Iraq. I think a balance of power between USA and Iran can create a better middle east . If the USA lets Arab states become fully sovereign, then wait to see a couple of Saudi Arabias, a couple of Lybias and a couple of Tunisias. I mean states that make no sense neither for their citizens nor for the world..

Here are some but not all the shots:

-S.Arabia: some malls are for married people only! can one imagine! I can only imagine if they hold some swinging events there.

-Tunisia: In the state controlled media, Tunisia blames Qatar for having ties with Israel..I can assure you that an Arab or Muslim person would feel more at home in Israel than in Tunisia..at least in Israel, the police do not order Muslim girls to take off the scarf before going entering a public institution except for the nuns..

-Lybia: in the courts there a big caligraphy saying: "stand for your Lybian brother oppressed or oppressor"

..if you do a real referendum in the mentioned countries on the following question:

do you will to join the kingdom of Spain, obey its laws and be an equal citizen!

most if not all will vote YES. I did not put America in the referendum question only because the Image of it has been damaged by Bush..or else who would say no..

I do not want the people who agree, I want those who disagree and have strong feelings, I want those with low blood pressure..I have some flowers to give..

Submitting....
