    Which ever country it is, they must not have accepted democracy. So we had to lay waste to their country to make it democratic, sorry.

    Um, not quite. The Islamists destroy ancient sites that are not in keeping with thier religion. See how the Taliban in Afganistan destroyed the Buddist statues in 2001…http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/afghanistan/1326063/After-1700-years-Buddhas-fall-to-Taliban-dynamite.html

    Wilkinson is pointing out a sad fact; don’t assume she is blaming anyone in particular. That goes for both “left and right”.

    Not since Napoleon. I lived in Murten, and got to learn all abou the Battle of Murten (or Morat) in 1476. They drove the French into the lake and kept all their weapons.

    Maybe North Korea will soon look like this.

    Costa Rica has a 97% literacy rate. It also has no standing army. Draw whatever conclusions you choose.

    Scott you are a scum bag. No reason for that hateful attitude. Since I would defend your right to be a scum bag and give aid should you need it. I doubt you would accord me the same.

    For about 500 years the Swiss were mercenaries up until the end of the Napoleonic wars in 1815 when Europe was redrawn. It was then that the Swiss stopped being mercenaries and remain neutral. (Not counting being the Nazi bank for Germany.)

    While we prefer to learn from history, and (mostly) respect it, the fundamentalist Muslims want to take us back to near Stone Age times.Arabs used to be well versed in science and math (Arabic numbers anyone?) But the Taliban only cares about their narrow interpretation of certain scriptural passages. Sounds familiar here, doesn’t it?

    You forgot about the secret deals that kept Switzerland from being invaded. Though I wonder for how much longer after the fighting had been over if the Germans had won.

    I remember that – Taliban destroyed them even after many museums wanted to buy them & move them off their land.
