    Oh thank gawd George W. Bush is off the hook. I won't however disagree with you about PNAC's influence on him.

    I've never advocated for that. There's plenty of ways that the militant Islamic groups could have been contained. US foreign policy hasn't been interested in prevention and containment.

    Doing nothing comes with an even bigger price.

    Such as? We did this by the way in the 1990's if you recall, when we'd just lob a few cruise missiles in retaliation for any number of terrorist attacks. We ignored the problem for years and look where that got us...

    We tried that in the 1990's and look where that got us. Also, if you are truly from Singapore, it's easy to say all this when your one of the few countries that haven't come under attack from Radical Islam.

    And yet, whenever we do anything, we only make the problem worse. Can you tell me one instance where us doing anything has made a damned bit of difference?

    When you play military policeman to the rest of the world you get the same scenario as Ferguson.
