    Well unlike you I don't fawn over those who occasionally agree with me on the political front. Odom passed his shelf life when he went think tank on us. And of course we leveraged the EXISTING violence to get our way in the region, that's what nations in that period of history did. I don't endorse it in the now, nor did I then. As you know I'm really no fan of our CIA and consider it largely a rogue agency.

    However, there was violence before US involvement in the reason and there is still violence there. Had the US been totally non-involved decades ago, there would still be violence in the region.

    Give me your debunked arguments and snide comments about conditions well passed.
    Your repetition beyond imagining of the same old, same old.

    Well now, in order for this to happen, doesn't CONGRESS have to vote to grant them refugee status? If they do so, the better course would be to vote every critter that voted yes right on out of office.

    Ebola? Seriously? Do you know where Ebola comes from? Hint: It's not Central America.

This dynamic belies the American belief that our free, open and integrated multicultural society lessens the allure of radicalism and terrorism for US citizens.' The report looks at a number cases of US exported terrorism, including attacks by US based or financed Jewish, Muslim and Irish-nationalism terrorists. It concludes that foreign perceptions of the US as an "Exporter of Terrorism" together with US double standards in international law, may lead to noncooperation in renditions (including the arrest of CIA officers) and the decision to not share terrorism related intelligence with the United States.

    Three to four decades after our involvement in using region's existing violence. Do you suppose the discourse and problems between nations might have changed somewhat in that time period? Really, it didn't work for you the first time you tried this tack, why persist?

    It means your use of a poem that characterized how we were as a nation and as a world over a hundred years ago is so blatantly inane, as a comment here, is unacceptable.

    I know where it originates but considering we have "airplanes" going in and out of every airport that disease (much like many other) can be transported quite easily...

    Besides, who knows that tribal people have and are immune to..

    Why you think Anthropologists are so careful in dealing with "uncontacted peoples/tribes?"
