    Well...I supposed we could just put up a big wall against the rest of the world. That worked out well in the lead up to WW2, huh?

    We certainly shouldn't start trying to change governments all over the world by force. History has proven that doesn't work out so well.
    Worked out very well in regards to Germany and Japan.

    I do NOT have a strategy. I thought that was clear the first time.

    My reputation against yours. There are other things that are valuable besides money.

    I was an exception in that my doc risked a friendship by making me do A1C's every three months for a year and a half till he got the GTL and caught it early. If it weren't for the side effect of high glucose from betahystine to treat the Menierre's I would be peachy....

    Here was your challenge to me

    I'm betting that if the terrorists start regularly attacking us on American soil, you would be among the first to scream: "Why didn't we stop them overseas?!"
    Since I would be in total and complete control of this response and all I have to do is never utter those words - I accept your bet. But how about we make it interesting and you put up your existence here and I put up mine.

    We wait for three terrorist strikes here and monitor my posts and ifI do not respond as you predicted. then you leave and never return. On the other hand, if I do respond as you predicted, then I leave and never return.

    Except to do nothing, so someone else's kids can endure the effects of the do nothing strategy.
