Re: Yes it's off topic but who cares right now.
> There are many reasons that the Muslims hate the US. s/muslims/most of the world/ we are the most hated country in the world. as you say, there are many reasons. but, whatever they may be, if we bomb all of the planet that hates us, there won't be enough left for us or anyone else to survive. be pragmatic. all these frustrating emotions of fear and hate (and hate is often the consequence of fear) should not lead us into precipitous actions which have no long-run win. all the braggadocio can not obscure our lack of success fighting determined guerrillas and terrorists. it's not an easy problem. if it was, the world would be a much more peaceful place already. resist the cycle of violence and hate, if not for morality, then because it is just plain not pragmatic. we do have norms for justice, prudence, and process. if we do not follow them, then we have become the enemy and the terrorists have won. randy
