    I didn't say I'm for an attack, but I'm not going to agree with someone that says we should not disturb other countries generally. That's ridiculous.

    Why is it "ridiculous" to suggest the USofA should stay out of other countries business????

    What "right" do we have to stick our noses in their stuff?

    You quoted me and asked irrelevant questions to my post. And I don't care to answer your questions when we probably agree on not attacking...waste of my time.

    Because to do that is isolationist and when we do that the world actually gets less safe. Take the last few years for example. Right? What are you talking about? What doesn't give us that right?

    Western values are not shared by ME countries. If there is no gain to be had, I see no purpose other than galvanizing those who would already to see the west fail, which is what would happen. You should know better than anyone that the current leadership doesn't have the gonads to be effective in a strike.

    They were not irrelevant or you would have attempted to answer rather than deflect...

    Good evening, AP.

    I have no comment on anyone's gonads. I think The Economist gets it about right.

    That was the gist of the article and it climaxed at the end...
