    Some structures are built on bad foundations(and regimes), for which no amount of political fiddling can correct. Under these circumstances fiddling may just be the best policy.

    Thanking our God (not theirs) that the USA managed to keep our soldiers out of the barbaric countries. The soldiers mothers are probably relieved as well.

    Aid to the survivors would be humane.

    Somehow, with the largest Navy the world has ever seen, I do no think that any Middle Eastern country is ever going to be any kind of a threat to the US itself. And if we can eventually get ourselves off of the oil teat, then we really should not care what these various fanatics do to themselves. I only feel for the innocents involved, especially the women and children!!

    Egyptians day by day
    Would gaze upon the Sphinx
    And very often say
    “You know, life really stinks!”
    Mubarak then resigned
    Though none could call it clever
    And pretty soon they’ll find
    That things are worse than ever

    With a Navy that has twelve major aircraft carrier groups, any one of which is fully capable of destroying an entire nation, there are no direct and viable threats to the US. I am fully aware that does not mean that there are no threats at all, there is always some kind of threat. But basically, the “Only thing we have to fear , is fear itself”. That very paranoia then develops into the ultimate threat to our own freedoms. And we then do that to ourselves!!

    Stipple: “our God, not theirs”? Does that mean India and the Hindus? Muslims worship the same God of Abraham as Christians and Jews, period. “Allah”, just means “God”, or do you want to start Christians speaking Hebrew to get the name right?

    Jews, Christians and Muslims all worship ONE God, but after reading their scriiptures it certainly dosn’t soound to me that it’s the SAME One.

    “our God (not theirs)”
     
    Mindless allegiance to gods of any sort is probably responsible for 2/3 of the world’s miseries.

    “Allah” is not the same God of Jews and Christians, but a collection of Bedouin deities combined by the Prophet to unify diverse groups on the Arabian peninsula.

    Sod ‘Em Insane certainly wanted the world to THINK he had WMD’s and would use them! I think he sent them all to Halfass A. Sod to keep
    for him ‘just until this blows over.’ Where the
    poison gas he got from Sod ’Em Insane is now
    being used by Basher A. Sod against his own people, just as Insane used it in his effort to put down the Kurds.

    I have been called both a leftist and a rightist on this site,

    That is not surprising because at bottom there is NO difference. A politician is a politician is
    a politician. Their ONLY true interest is to get into offfice and stay there, with the aim of acquiring and exercising as much power and inflluence as possible for as long as possible. All the -ologies and -isms are smoke and mirrors to fool the voter….

    There has not been a ‘right horse’ candidate for at least 60 years, and rarely even a ‘lesser of two evils’ choice….

    ““Allah”, just means “God”, " You better not get caught peddling that crap to a Muslim. He will dispatch your butt in a New York Minute.
