- Shiite takeover of Iraqi town - precursor to US losing the war? Time to bail out and turn our energies toward Iran and N Korea?
If they can get a stable government then we wouldn't have to worry about them anymore.
Tough call. I'm all for free speech, but I feel stupidity should be punished very harshly. The guy knew what he was doing and he knew what an uproar it would cause.

Sure. I trust Japan more than I do any other country outside of England because I believe the United States and Japans economeis are more closely tied than any other two countries in the world.
- Allow Japs to go nuke? Remember Pearl Harbor!
Simple human nature. The Japanese people don't want to attack us because it would hurt their wallets. It's much easier to find people willing to die for a cause if their lives aren't going all that great to begin with. Look at Germany (WW II) and the Middle-East (pretty much forever).
