    I do not know about Repeter, but I could join the Peace Corps, if the conservatives have not ruined this..
    But at age 71 and partially disabled(mentally and physically) and no ability to speak Arabic..
    We can but be champions for programs which help people, not kill them.
    So, we must leave these areas with our military, IMO.
    And the so-called "religious right" must also stay away.

    Peace is a two way road. The Muslim world needs to make peace with us if we are to make peace with them. Pretending that ending all military actions would result in peace is fantasy. The extremists would still exist and they would grow stronger.

    The Muslim people have tried on numerous occasions to make peace with the west but America has obstructed the process. There will be peace when the USA realizes that it cannot defeat the Muslim people. Muslims believe in their Prophet and Allah and will happily sacrifice their life in defence of those beliefs. Americans will sacrifice nothing for they have no beliefs.

    When and how? What I've seen is militant groups rising up and wanting to take over nations while preaching death to the west. We aren't in Iran yet they want to destroy America and Israel. It's Islamic extremism and it's dangerous violent actions that are a threat, and their goal is not peace but rather destruction. I don't understand what you are talking about when you point out Muslim devotion to Muhammad and Allah.

    "Americans will sacrifice nothing for they have no beliefs." Then why are we one of the most charitable nations on earth? How dare you make a statement like this. What about the soldiers and military families that sacrifice for our country and safety? Americans do have beliefs, and many are willing to lay down their lives as soldiers for those beliefs and for their fellow Americans. Your comment is extremely disrespectful to soldiers and their families and it's completely false.

    Do not play ignorant. You know what is meant by the "west". The US obstructs everything they feel will result in higher gas prices.

    Or maybe it was just a stupid poll that doesn't describe the complexity of the situation.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    there are not enough options... you are limiting the vote to two extremes... and most people arn't as extreme as you are and actually know the issue is much more complex then "do you like peace or is wanting peace weakness" basically. There is a reason why people don't take Miss America seriously whens she says she wants "World Peace".

    Re: PEACE can be OURS

    Of course there are only two choices. PEACE or WAR.

    Either you are intelligent and wish to live in peace with our Muslim brothers and sisters or you are an absolute insane person who desires to kill and make war against innocent men, women, and children simply because they do not practice the "white-man's" Christian religion.

    I do not give a third choice.
