Response to Paul Wakefield's comment

Reader comment on item: Profs Who Hate America
in response to reader comment: A view from Britain

Submitted by Joe Vitale (United States), Jul 10, 2005 at 00:27

I'm very glad to see a British man put in his opinion - the British are very well informed (much more informed than the American public). I am an American that is in strong agreement with your extrapolation in your responses to statements that had been expressed earlier.

I would also like to add to your response to the "we will look bad if we don't attack now" statement: It's a double-sided coin. If they are so worried about looking bad that they make sure they are hasty in war-waging decisions, wouldn't that make them look bad to the people that disagree with their actions? I'm having trouble making sense out of the reasoning, but I guess if they are going to use that kind of reasoning, they might as well flip a coin to decide who they want to choose to please.
