"Georges, do you really support what the American and coalition forces did when they came to Iraq and turned your world upside down?"
  "Yes, of course I do.  - God only knows what evil Saddam would eventually have done."
" - al-Assad, please turn over these weapons. - Let the United Nations take them away."
  Saddam had used his scientists' capacity to memorize detail of A bomb plans, preparing for its rapid development while UN continued "inspections". By General Georges Sada, Saddam's Vice Air Marshall, Assyrian Christian, currently President of Iraqi Council of Churches. In Saddam's Secrets, Integrity Publishers 2006. He asked to lead the 40,000 Iraq Air Force in restoring order, but fear of Baathist methods kept Bremmer from accepting.
  "Hell Is Over- voices of the Kurds after Saddam" by Mike Tucker, 2004, Lyons Press reports, " I have listened to survivors of massacres during Saddam's murderous campaign--. Their joy is palpable and contagious  --even in these uncertain times of increased terrorism and insurgent attacks." 
  TV reports selectively bad news. Statistical weighing of benefit, as with radiation, is needed for accurate risk analysis. We must stop the Caliphate where it is sponsored, since it has declared it will eliminate infidels, America especially, and has on 9/11 shown that its threats are not empty. USSR leaders did not risk atomic retaliation.  Would these death-wishers?

  What if, by some crazy fluke, the French nationalist

itself - - and the target was the U.S.? 

Just a hypothesis that is hardly based on reality... 

If the U.S. wants to stick its nose into others'
business too often, others will want to peek into our
tent too.

Sometimes, as in WWII, foreign intervention on the
part of our country is necessary, but I think it's
gone too far lately. 

I'd like to see our country reach out to at least the
conservative parties in Europe like the CDU/CSU in
Germany and the UMP in France. For the last few
years, U.S. politicians have been bashing 'em all as
"ungrateful" or as "socialists" -- with no recognition
of the political spectrum that exists in Europe. 

Granted, the Socialist parties in Europe are pretty
leftist, anti-business, and anti-nuclear. These guys
do not represent the entirety of European public
opinion. There are plenty of business-friendly
politicians in Europe who would happily work with the
U.S. if we stopped the Europe-bashing.

However, the United States must acknowledge that
hardly *any* Europeans, even on the Right, supported
the Iraq war.


Context: I support French conservative Nicolas Sarkozy
because he is a potential friend to Europe as well as
the U.S., he supports of the French nuclear energy
program, and because he's "tough on crime." The other
French candidates including Socialist Segolene Royal
and Rightist J.M. LePen are basically a joke because
they're too extreme on the Left (Segolene Royal) or on
the Right (J.M. LePen).
