    Hehehe, you're as gung-ho as Bush if you believe aggression and military power are the only ways to achieve peace.

    I just don't agree with this idea of setting up the ability to blow up everyone other country with a push of a button and than going to them and talking diplomacy. That makes for some awkward and tense discussions.

    On a side note, I would hope our military could still function without satellites.

    This is AMERICA if you ain't born here you don't belong here. Illegal is illegal, don't worry about our Constitution we don't use it much anymore but if you so much as glare at it we'll deem you "unwanted" and eliminate you from our lands.
