    But here's the thing about Mercenaries, as described by Machiavelli, when they know that they could lose, they usually flee.

    Here is the thing with modern weapons against bow and arrows. One merc can take out 500 people within a couple of minutes. And the protestors do not have any weapons that could reach the mercs. So Machiavelli's saying is outdated in today's world.

    You know, a couple of well placed missiles would get rid of quite a few of the middle east dictators and their regimes would fall like a house of cards in the ensuing power struggle. If GW was in charge there would be some real action right now. as it is Obummer doesn't even realise it's possible. Khadaffy Duck can be gone in an instant.

    Did you blame Uday and Qusay for the brutality of Saddam Hussein?

    Gee, why didn't Bush try that in Iraq? It would have saved a trillion dollars and thousand of American lives. If Jr. was in charge during this crisis we would be invading Canada by now..

    They are using a distraction in Wisconsin to cover it all up. It's what they do.
