So therefore we need to intentionally expose ourselves to new threats, as you advocate in your next post? Do you know how foolish that is?
And this is not chat. We spell out the word are.
WolfsView...thanks for "lending" him to me during your (hopefully brief!) hiatus. Hope you don't mind if we "share" him when you come back...and of course, do feel free to PING me into your threads so I can read 'em and show my appreciation for your generosity by bumping them!
Expanding on #37 and in particular the Brutal Peace codicil, the greatest folly of US involvement in the Israeli-Arab dispute was attempting to cushion the blows that the Arabs were receiving from Israel, as we did repeatedly and continue to do now. A decisive victory over the Palestinian terrorism, -- something that Israel was capable of achieving -- would have made the Arabs live with the consequences of their political choices; Arafat et al. would have been replaced with Arab leaders capable of negotiating peace. Now we should ponder to what extent the successful transformation of Arafat from a mass murderer to a statesman, the transformation that the US engineered, has influenced the bin Ladenite generation of terrorists.
You are right. Would that the pacifists saw it that way.
