    no, they are not. many of them are willing to allow us to accept dhimmitude, which is not the same thing.

    How? Practice respect in America and listen to other people and develop understanding, whether you agree or not. Often, when Conservatives get to know Muslims the Conservative realizes that he has much in common and has a new friend instead of a perceived enemy.

    Peace is rooted in the tenor of our interactions at home as well as internationally.

    I'm also not sure how trying to make peace would be a sign of weakness. We should be trying to normalize relationships with the groups in Afghanistan, because unless we want to kill eveyrone in the country, we're going to have to continue to deal with them.

    What are you personally willing to do to help modernize and educate people in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and/or Libya?

    I'm willing to pay more taxes. Aside from that, I'm not really sure how I could help. I'd be cannon fodder if I joined the Armed Forces, but the Peace Corp could be an option. I'm just spitballing though.

    While I understand where you are coming from, I asked repeter the question of what would he personally be willing to do because I constantly see people supporting military actions and yet they themselves do not want to sign up and put their money where their mouth is.

    Well I was one of those who supported the war and yes I served, not in these wars though. Ten years and counting with no end in sight, I think it's time that we reevaluate what we are doing there and why. We need to return to who we once were, it took time for me to realize this but as we all can see this country can no longer afford these endeavors. That being said, being a divided nation is longer a healthy way to becoming a great country as we also once were. Some day we all will realize those who govern have no interest in what the constitution mandates but, instead will play field for self power and aggrandizement as we all witness daily...it makes me sick to my stomach..

    In the end we will either fade a way or once again become the hope of the world, although we should pay close attention to the precedent the Roman Empire set during the Germanic wars and other foreign endeavors, we seem to be following the same path.

    Over 300 views and yet only 9 people have had the intestinal fortitude to voice their opinion via a vote. This proves my point that the absolute majority of people are but politically correct cowards.
