Good point terry.

Unfortunately, and I wish it weren't so, I think it's going to take a severe incident before you see anything happening on this front.

The status quo will remain intact as long as people are in their comfort zone.

It took Pearl Harbour to wake up the 'sleeping giant'.

The Japanese were quite religious too, they worshiped and died for their emperor GOD. The fact that they were religious didn't stop America from opening up a can of whoop-ass on them and it shouldn't deter America today.

Like in the 30's, today America had it's share of Marxists who deny the war and promote appeasement.

History has a nasty way of repeating itself for those who don't study it.
