    Yep, she definitely needs to get to the eye doctor for new glasses ASAP! I was concerned before, now I am becoming alarmed!

    As a test, hold a coupon, preferably one that has tiny print, that gives her the works at any spa she chooses.. IF she can read it...and she probably can...you'll know she's just teasing you, and she loves you just the way you are! See how easy it is? :

    Iraq is in a bad place because it is covered entirely by Middle Eastern Muslims. Perhaps looking at the situation for what it is rather than from the perspective that Muslims need dictators under our umbrella to behave would stop giving them their license to refrain from looking in the mirror. The Middle East is a mess because of Muslims. Not Jews in Israel. Not Westerners who have nothing to do with how they raised their children in religious zealousy. Not Pokemon in Japan for distracting Muslim children from the path of God. Not from anything outside of their own culture. It wasn't long ago that even European cultures involved the slaughter of tribes and the necessity to murder their own while sucking everybody else into it.

    Your mind is not open. It is focused on Bush protest and shut in a need for things to be simple. Bush supplied simple to you. WMD remember?

    Hell, some freaked out when just a couple dozen Saudis attacked us using our own planes! Those people would **** their pants if another country militarily invaded and occupied us like we did in Iraq.

    Sarge, I'm not going to waste your time and mine by replying to all of your posts, I'll just say that I read your posts and agree with most of what you say.

    America will never be all that it could be until we all start caring more about every American than we do about any political party.

    Or something like that.

    I don't claim to have all of the answers, I don't even know all of the questions.

    Have a good one.

    You are saying there should be no consideration of ethics in international relations? Neither side is morally superior to the other? We are no better than terrorists, we just have better weapons?

    That's not exactly what he meant. He was comparing the idea of leaving a dictator to sit upon his throne in 1991 to leaving a dictator to sit on his throne in 1945. Of course, the big difference is culture. The German population was not dividied into tribes since they had gone ahead and slaughtered out the "imperfect" souls prior to. Iraq's population was divided in hitorical tribal hate and the fear of instability acytually convinced the most poerful nations in the world to embrace the dictator.

    More telling is the difference in Western population. Both events needed the threat of a foreign jack-ass to light a fire under American butts. Both events had bigger economic issues that were really at stake. And both events had physically nothing to do with Pearl Harbor or 9/11. Yet, both events were about something bigger than words like "Democracy," "Freedom," or today's "WMD."

    Twisted is pretending that we can reduce these global events to a black and white ordeal.

    Not pointing a finger at anyone in particular, but why do some people want to ignore some things that happened in the past?

    This is worth thinking about a little bit.

    Everyone (Including me.) should learn from past errors, their own, and others errors. It's an easy way to avoid repeating them.

    Does your husband know how lucky he is? If not, get him on these threads and I'll straighten him out.
