It must be wonderful to be a republican leader in the US. With a readymade constituency of uneducated religious nuts who will believe anything you say... as long as it is xenophobic and "laden" with fear and hatred of others. After all these uneducated masses have never travelled abroad... most have never left their backward little states. The question is.... was it a deliberate government ploy over many generations to dumb down the US public... or was it a natural phenomena? Only in the US could an obvious simpleton like Gw Bush... have propagated such an obvious lie as "the war on terror". The rest of the world looked on in utter disbelief that so many americans fell for it.....we knew that there were alot of thick and gullible americans...but so many? It is a very dangerous country... the only truly backward, fundamentalist state in the world today. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the educated minority who have to share their nation with these drones of hate and ignorance.
