Wild Wild West, I do understand what you are saying.

I knowe nothing of how my country was viewed before the Second World War. I'm really only familiar with Viet Nam and after. I try to understand why our soldiers get called to foreign lands for war. Sometimes it makes sense, other times it does not. I know the world's leaders probably try to see things in a 'what if' mode. What if we do not help this country...what will the future fo the world be if we do not. What if we ignore the pleas of the common man in this country..what will the future of the world be if we do ignore them.

I am sure most leaders think like this in some fashion. How could they not? Not only are they worried about the civilians in which ever country is in peril, but also worried how it may affect their own country 10, 15, 20 or more years down the road. And no matter how right the leaders think they are, there is always going to be someone, somewhere who thinks otherwise. Not just American leaders go through these thoughts, I am sure it weighs on the brains of ALL the world's leaders no matter how rich or poor.

I never went to college and never paid much attention to any politics until lately.nnI am not a religious person in the sense of any type of organized religion. One question I have, and I wish someone, ANYONE would answer....What do you think the Imams who started all this with the 3 false pictures were trying to accomplish and more important..WHY.

What are your thoughts on these men who are supposed to represent Islam? By their actions, it makes muslims look like liars and manipulators. I'm not saying you are these, I'm just telling you what they portray. What kind of punishment do you think they deserve? All the deaths that have occured, muslim deaths are in my eyes, on their (the Imams) shoulders. I would love to hear some thoughts on these questions. By anyone but Libyan that is..his views aren't the views of most the muslims here and the way he comes across is very offensive to me, that he speaks like he is speaking for all muslims here.
