in response to reader comment: Why would Islamic countries want to be like the USA

Submitted by Roger (United States), Jul 24, 2005 at 22:50

It's not about making Islamic countries just like U.S. it's about making them have respect for human life and forcing them out of the middle ages. It's about giving muslim women basic human rights to express their opinions however ignorant .

We have more choices than just Wal-Mart, and always will have choices, although I rarely shop there.Most of our American poor enjoy a far higher standard of living than many, many other countries. So be grateful for your freedoms and less critical of a country that is still the most free and democratic nation on earth.
