    I'd say it all depends on whether the government listens to the whines from the left rather than do what is right, as they did in Vietnam.

    Walter Cronkite taught the American left that leaving our allies to the mercy of their and our enemies is "an honorable peace." In truth it's nothing but a lack of stones and/or cowardice.

    Walter Cronkite's statement, IMO, is a PERFECT example of the media's disregard for the impact of their words on the average American. Not so much now, but in 1969, there were 3 network channels, and that was it. The people trusted that what they were being told was the truth.

    A lot of today's problem with the media is the established MSM being challenged by the advent of so much info being available from sources other than the tube. They don't have the control over the American mind they used to.

    Yet we STILL have nimrods who believe if we turn our backs on radical Islam and just "leave them alone" we have nothing to fear. Beats the Hell out of me ...... :scratch:

    I agree. I guess that is part of the reason I am so obsessed with checking as many sources as possible. I really am glad I took speed reading. Wish I could remember how I was taught.

    I'm pretty sure this is eventually going to spread to other Muslim countries wether the U.S. is there or not. Terrorists, Islamic people, Muslims, whoever, they've all seen it coming.

    I know for a fact, if it hasn't happened already, Lebanon is on the brink of civil war. Hezbollah are fucking alot of shit up over there.
