in response to reader comment: Baathists - strategic partners

Not necessarily Vijay ... Despite the fact that the baathists are secular, we have to remember what Baathism is ... which is socialism mixed with Arab jingoism. So, if Americans are not the Great Satan, then we are evil capitalist exploiting imperialist pigs that still deserves to be dead anyways.

Speaking of another dictatorship..... I can't see Iran as being very tough militarilly, true they have weapons that they bought from the Russians but its not like the Iranians are as good as our military is in technology or in experience. The thing is, the United States, like Israel for that matter, just can't fight a propaganda war against scum that murder people while hiding under civilian cover and then cries foul when there is a retaliation. It may just be a wiser thing to take this to the battlefield where the United States is strong and then we'd have a better chance of concluding the war on terrorism in our favor aka winning... by having the records of the governments that sponsor this or by having imprisoned the officials who know of the records and then there would be all the leads that the US would need to kill them all (terrorists of course, not noncombatants).

As far as our image with these people are concerned ... if going after terrorists would make these people consider whether or not they wantto be terrorists themsemselves ......... there is no love to be lost. we'd also be able to take over their madrassas and then the U.S. would be able to make the Middle East actually full of normal people instead of religiously fanatical sociopathic megalomaniacs.

think its time to pay Saudi Arabia a little visit? ;-)

down with wahabism
