    No --- but it sure embarrasses you, doesn't it?

    I was stationed there with the USAF in the mid-70s. Later, I supported the SE Asia Plans division at the Pentagon. So, when I tell you that you don't know what the hell you are talking about, you can take THAT to the bank.

    Well, it's a little more than that. It is a strategic supply of the world's oil. Besides are you telling me that we haven't gone to war over oil before? You are starting to disappoint me.

    No, actually they don't, and not knowing that is why you believe we can't win

    No, we would launch a nuclear war, they would perish and there would be a nuclear winter that would only end all life within that region of Asia...SEE Japan

    No, they cannot reach us if they do not exist...and they cannot reach us with current capabilities either. The only way to eliminate any threat to us is to eliminate the threat...would you agree?

    No. He's not a liberal. I suspect he is an anti-colonialist or an anarchist. Either way, I don't think he has a very high opinion of America.

    I don't think a large scale amphibious assault under fire is possible these days........One Ohio of Tomahawks ruins your whole day.

    "All kinds of people today call themselves “libertarians,” especially something calling itself the New Right, which consists of hippies, except that they’re anarchists instead of collectivists. But of course, anarchists are collectivists. Capitalism is the one system that requires absolute objective law, yet they want to combine capitalism and anarchism. That is worse than anything the New Left has proposed. It’s a mockery of philosophy and ideology. They sling slogans and try to ride on two bandwagons. They want to be hippies, but don’t want to preach collectivism, because those jobs are already taken. But anarchism is a logical outgrowth of the anti-intellectual side of collectivism. I could deal with a Marxist with a greater chance of reaching some kind of understanding, and with much greater respect. The anarchist is the scum of the intellectual world of the left, which has given them up. So the right picks up another leftist discard. That’s the Libertarian movement." Ayn Rand
