    It would certainly be part of it. Lots of schools are underfunded and there are not enough teachers and administrators to go along. You'd need to pay to get those things up to snuff.

    So what other "benefits" have we reaped from destabilizing Iraq? Besides bigger debt, bigger government, and more dead Americans.

    I'd rather have the strength of character to not malign their commitment to America, and instead only call forth their commitment when America is at risk. Not throw them at whatever problem the world has at any moment with no plan, no exit strategy, and no reason to have been there in the first place. The weak-willed Americans are the ones who got us into this mess in the first place.

    People of character don't need an "exit strategy". They only exit after they win.

    Having an 'exit strategy' only sends a signal that the weak willed are always quite prepared to retreat and the enemy obviously knows that.

    No. I'm flattered you think so though.

    Would you like to contest the notion?

    What's the point of contesting your notions?

    You commented on it without actually saying a thing. Care to say something about it? Or just continue to hide behind your non sequitur dodge?

    What's to say about some silliness like "religion is the religion of violence"?

    It's juvenile.
