I propose a final solution:
Let's go invade Cuba
Let's go invade Myanmar
Let's go invade Iran
Let's go invade Israel
Let's go invade North Korea
Let's go invade Pakistan
Let's go invade Iraq (done, OK)
And the world will be a much better place.
Did I miss any country?
You want the world to do nothing, stay in your home and hide as you are doing now. Make non-consctructive comments like this.
Complaints are not solutions, I proposed here the support of the heroes that are doing the job.
Mike, your sarcasm is 100 predictable, and this is what is sad. What you wish is for the world to do nothing.
The reverse isy you need bravery you could muster, you would not be brave enough to be hated by your own people to help another people.
You need to be brave enough to make your best decision. Although what your proposed is obviously the depth of your mind.
Can you go on record to have an opinion as to what to do with that list of countries. I believe all you can do is critisize the people who do take responsibilty.
Mike the anonymous person who simplified the world to the same level as Hitler.
The world is a better places as a result of the decisions made by President Bush.
I looked into the eyes of Iraq people, while most of the world sat watching TV.
Allow the good leaders to make decisions to try their best, or believe all humans are evil.
The war on cruel leaders is a never ending push to stop them.
Then to endure the never ending complaints of the people they lead.
Your answer is to do nothing, because you cannot make any decisions that would result in critisim or a posssible mistake.
Do nothing, look the other way, it is your way, be cynical.
I see the USA government as doing its best, I suppor them whether the solutions they try succeeded or failed. Good judgments or bad.
I will support Obama, Cliton, or Mccane if one of them becomes the president. I will not say,
"I did not vote for him or her."
It will be my President, I will try to support, not tear down.
Andy, as usual you provide a refreshing change from the usual blogosphere. An honest hard look at the world. No flowery, "the world is wonderful, except the US" comments. More of an adult view of the world.
I have only known a few people in my years that seem to have that kind of balanced, honest look at the world. (I am probably not one of them, although I try.)
