Gazrok-One Goliath at a time there, David!
JMS88-I'm not sure you could call either of those countries Goliath.....
True niether of these entities are a match for the USA as a world power and WAR machine.
But they represent the homelands for many of the Muslim clerics who guide the people of Islam, who are in numbers far superior then any force on
earth, larger even then the mighty millions of the regular Chinese Nationals.
So we must always keep in mind that, YES, we are at war but we are at war with a country; not the religion. For if we cross that imaginary line in the
sand, we are doomed.
You can fight a war against a government but you can not fight a war of religion. One only needs to look to history to see what bloody folly such
tactics would bring, not just to the US but to all mankind.
We are no longer fighting with swords and spears, horse and lance. It would now become much less quaint and much more deadly. Or we would need to
follow a rather "Final Solution" that is not acceptable to any truly civilized culture, regardless of how "superior" one might feel.
