Reader comment on item: What If the United States Had Not Invaded Iraq

Submitted by Donald W. Bales (United States), Sep 11, 2005 at 17:27

i perceive the problem to be more the blindness of those who oppose the iraq war than the fact of the war. there is also the unwillingness of the europeans to face up to the challenge of radical islam. have the two world wars not only killed off some (many) of their best, but left those who survived without the inclination, the will and, yes, the courage to defend themselves?as to those u.s. citizens who are u.s. haters-they are not only blind and deaf-they are also dumb (and i don't mean that they are mute).
