Problem as I see it is,
there's propaganda
all around

-Truth IS the
first casualty
of war

As Yogi Berra says,
"I didn't really say everything I said"

So who's telling the Truth? I dunno...
I'll tellya, I don't have all the answers
...but I can & do & will ask questions!

CK: Time will tell - but the area has been a quagmire for a long time - And, for a long time, a quagmire that Uncle Sam hadn't leapt directly & (IMHO) clumsily into with both feet, and never before to 'pre-emptively' prevent trouble.

Is the belief system what makes the fanatic, or is it the zeal and/or the unreasonableness, as stated above? Y'know, I've known fanatical folks that have changed belief systems more than once, and were fanatical about each one. Just based on that, I wouldn't go so far to say is IS ONLY zeal and/or ...
