    Actually I am in charge of a great deal more than my keyboard and did never said that anyone should enter anywhere in the Middle East "fueled by emotion and acting like maniacs".

    What's the good of responding to a quote if you don't actually use it or base your response on it?

    Of course learning something about preparedness would be a good thing but if 'the leader of the free world' skips intelligence meetings or meetings with important international leaders for a spot on David Letterman then a lack of preparedness, and its consequences, should come as no surprise.

    There will be more of this until a new attitude and serious leadership emerges.

    Who gives a **** and why do you keep excusing it? I could call Achmeds mother a sperm burping whore and it wouldnt excuse his brother to go kill some random stranger in his mothers honor. What the hell is wrong with you that you keep trying to make the actions of animals somehow justified?

    I get what you are saying.

    There are no friends between nations. There are only allies. But Allies means team and team is always more powerful than individual. This very much means that nations like France and Britian and Japan, etc. are our problem. Their miseries suck us in. You do remember the entire 20th century where America was sucked into global foriegn wars because other nations misbehaved unchecked? Allies act as our proxies to make regions behave. It also encourages them to behave. Having us as an ally means loyalty and the ability to raise the American bat signal. It offers stability and protection on every level. This is why much of the world (those that matter) wanted to take part in the 9/11 retaliation. An attack on us was an attack on them. Of course, Bush and Co. went and screwed that goodwill up rather quickly, but the fact remains.

    Israel, specifically, is our key ally in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia is an ally ONLY because of oil exportation. The rest is just about making the only instable region left on earth behave (and don't think people like Saddam Hussein made it stable as local activities against dictators throughout since have proven). But Israel represents something else. It represents democracy in a region where such a thing is just now taking root in the Arab world. It is also the number one country in our team of allies that is constantly dealing with radical terrorists and international criticism because of who they ethnically are. We cannot ever base our loyalty on the pressure from enemies of democracy and freedom.

    History has proven that our security relies on the stability of foriegn regions. Never have we gone to a country or dealt with a country because it was just about that country (Spanish-American War an obvious exception). Always, it was the region. Israel represents the Western path in a region that is still choosing between our path and the path backwards.

    Of course it is easy to state that no Amerian blod is worth any foriegn blood. I agree. However, American blood spills even when we try to isolate. Eventually, they suck us out to when the blood is guaranteed to be thicker and the treasure is guaranteed to be heavier. Our goal is to get the world to a place where it can take care of itself. This means allies, even those we dislike.

    It would seem that the Islamic strategy of divide and conquer is having some success.

    I think the Islamist reaction to this would be, "what's the difference?"

    Why would anyone start posting about Aisha on this thread?

    You turning in an anti-semite? Can't you tell the difference between Jewish and Israeli?
