Thanks for the response SL.
My postings to mls were just me pulling his leg to see if he would expand on his initial statement of the thread, and provide an explanation of why HE thought "it was time to unify Syria-Iraq again".
I guess he couldn't feel the tug on his leg, or chose to ignore it.
Both of you have a good week.
The reason I think its time to unify is because of all the nonsense going on in syria now. I sorta thought that was obvious. With Syria and Iraq unified, there won’t be any Iranian, russian, or muslim brotherhood influence allowed.
To be fair, I was kindof pulling your leg, too. Taking an obvious joke as if it were a sincere request for information.
This slicing and dicing of Europe in the 19th century didn’t work a whole lot better than the amalgamation of the 20th appears to be turning out.
It seems that “peoples” with different histories and cultures may indeed get along best when they maintain some separation from each other.
