If they are so powerless then why are they coming across the border and demanding all sorts of rights and benefits in the USA? They will succeed in making the U.S. another Mexico within this century. MM

Oversight, I appreciate your polite comments. By the saying, "The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world," I believe it is meant that those (countries) who have the most babies have the most power. Think about it. Why are we having so much trouble in the middle east? Why did we lose the war in Viet Nam? In Viet Nam new Communist recruits kept coming down the Ho Chi Minh trail to fight us. We didn't have the population that the Communists did to continue the war. The same thing is happening in Iraq and the middle east. Israel has only a population of 6 million. The Muslims far outnumber the Jews. You can drop all the bombs you want, but when it comes to occupying a country you need people...lots of people. Have a good evening. MM
Then forgive my misunderstanding and assumptions. My response was a good example of where an assumption can lead...or rather mis-lead.

As for Viet Nam, personally I believe we lost that war for many reasons, but I think we could have won if we were united in our resolve to do so.

I have great hesitation about Iraq, too. Again, not because I don't think we have the power to win, but we may defeat ourselves by our unwillingness to strike hard and ruthless enough to defeat - no, crush - our opponents.

I am a Southerner who grudgingly admires General Sherman. Not because of what he did to the South, but because he understood his opponents enough to realize what it would take to defeat them. I love old style Southerners, partly, when it comes to what they cherish, they would rather die before surrender. It is a strange quality, but I can't help but admire such dedication.

There is a story of a Rebel soldier captured when the Northerners were invading the South. His tattered clothes made it obvious he didn't have the money to own slaves, so his captors asked him why he was fighting. He replied "I am fighting because you are down here."

I suspect many who live in occupied lands have the same motivation. It is hard to find a more enduring one.

Could they accomplish any of these things without the cooperation of Americans? Unfortunately George W. Bush appears willing to give them whatever they ask for.

I like Southerners. You have good insights about war. I'm a Northern gal who doesn't believe Lincoln was the saint he's been made out to be. "The first casualty in every war is TRUTH." Iagree with you that we didn't win in Viet Nam because we were forced to fight with one arm tied behind our back.(I was a Goldwater girl.) But I still think that had we won, we would have found the same problems of occupation that we are having in Iraq. Our army there is way too small to deal with the population that is there. We are over extended and can no longer expect to be the world's peacekeeper.

My grandfather (1880-1958) was irritated by our nation's constant meddling all over the globe, and he said, "Some day the rest of the world will drive us back to our own shores and force us to stay here." I think he may prove to be right. MM

Oversight, Lincoln may have been no saint, but he was no dummy either. Good quote. I agree with you that G W Bush has been a big disappointment on illegal immigration. He takes his marching orders from the "one world government crowd." In order to achieve that new world order, the U.S. has to become like the rest of the world by killing off its middle class. Good evening. MM
