    Is is considered one of the top in the world at international analysis.

    There has to come a time when we trust the experts over political posturing

    Good analysis. I am all for pulling the US out of Iraq and let the other more knowledgeable factions solve the problem. I propose we take the US military, diplomats and money back here to the US and address our own problems. We should have done that in the first place.

    By the way, since the US is so incompetent at this sort of thing, we should seriously consider stepping down as a world power of any sort, disband our military, close our borders, stop all foreign aid, send the UN to some european country and let the rest of the world do as it pleases.

    Aren't you happy when you "win"?

    Further, now that the UK quitters have got rid of Blair, we can dispose of that special relationship rhetoric, and let the UK snuggle up to the EU where it belongs. First we will have to make sure we exit NATO, and withdraw our air and sea power from UK bases. And, of course, we'll need those Trident missiles back that are in UK submarines. And, unfortunately, we’ll have to cancel the UK’s order for F35 fighters. We will save so much money that we will be able to ship the entire UN building straight to Paris, where it will be at home with the EU appeasers and collaborators.

    I wasn't talking about Iraq...I am talking about YOU personally. You have convinced me that the US is evil and needs to be isolated from the rest of the world. It needs to be "declawed" and removed from a position of influence in the world arena.

    You got it....we need to withdraw our financial support for all foreign interests including the UN, Red Cross, Peace Corps and any other effort that works on a global scale lest we be seen as trying to influence world affairs. We certainly do not want ot provide military, logistic or financial support to ANYONE; after all, the moral high ground is paramount and we want EVERYONE to like us....think of us as Switzerland only bigger....everyone loves the Swiss!

    Great idea CSM. We can be a giant North American Switzerland. Canada would blend in and never even notice. We could all have secret numbered bank accounts!
