Communism was easy

Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:

Submitted by Leo (United States), Dec 5, 2006 at 10:18

Communism was relatively easy to defeat. I grew up under it. Very few people actually believed in the doctrine and most wanted American way of life and did not consider America an enemy.

Radical muslims don't care that an average American owns 10 pairs of jeans, Russians did. It will be so much more difficult if at all possible. Too bad that our biggest enemy owns our energy source.
