ok, im getting on this a bit late. First off....did someone on here say that the dollar has rebounded???!! what world do they live in? The dollar has dropped by 60% since bush got into office, and i have yet to see the price of milk, rice, and other foods, gas, etc begin dropping back down to pre bush prices, so NO, just cause the dollar got a few bumps up lately that is no signal of a resurgent dollar, thats just the manipulation of the market by the banking system, and only a temporary fix.
As to the debate that america is not the worlds largest state sponsor of terror, just look at all that we put into power and supported. If you arent conversent with the stories (in detail) of people like Pinochet, mogabe, The Shah (particularly poignant here), suharto, Saddam, The Somoza's, Trujillo, papa doc and baby doc, just to name a few, then you are ignorant of large parts of our countries policies and practices. We have a long and glorious history of supporting and installing 25 dictatorships around the world, of Bay of Pigs style attempts at invasion through our training of terrorists from different countries, heck, we currently support and protect several cuban and south american terrorists in florida where they are happily retired and living off their american pensions.
And finally, to fear iraqs aggressive nature....that of a country that hasnt invaded another in i believe close to 225 years, while we live in a country that has invaded more than any other since WWII....seems a bit farfetched.
