         I can't comment on Fox News or CNN, because I don't watch them.

         Invading Iraq did not protect US interests, nor did it protect US 
citizens.  It has killed over 3000 US citizens though.  We may be the most 
powerful nation, however might does not make right.  Your claim that the 
French would be speaking German is rubbish and shows your resounding 
ignorance about World War II.  After Stalingrad Hitler was beaten, and both 
the Germans and the French might have ended up speaking Russian.  That 
probably would have done nothing to upset the disciples of FDR; nor would 
it have upset any of the sappy knee-jerk liberals who so plagued this 
country in the 1960s and 1970s.

         I agree with you about cutting off foreign aid, but why not be 
consistent and cut off *all* foreign aid?  You can start with cutting off 
Egypt and Israel.  I doubt that Austria receives much US foreign aid, and 
if it doesn't Austrians probably wouldn't care if their (possibly) 
non-existent foreign aid came to an end.

         Review your own history.  I think Franz is an asset to RADSAFE, 
even when I don't like what he says.  Finally, you are not the only one who 
has been in the service, so quit waving it around like it makes you special 
or important.
