    I would go further and suggest that we don't have a right to expect them to change their culture or political systems. If we enter their countries with military force and tell them that they will adopt Western democracy, we can't complain if, one day, they invade Western countries and introduce their systems and beliefs.

    I can't disagree that some of those regimes and nasty, to say the least, but is there any sign that what replaces them is any better? Western lives have been sacrificed in the thousands for us to find that bad guys have been replaced by different bad guys.

    It is within a countries right to have the political system they so desire. If it is a monarchy or communistic government they want then let them have it. I do not agree with hurting and killing the innocent though.

    Alot of times, it doesn't have to be western lives... we here in the U.S., appointed ourselves as the world's police.. and now that is a job we do not need to have. We need to work with the UN, NATO and with our Allies, and come in when asked. And leave the tide has turned, use sanctions and other means at our disposal.

    UNOCOL said that the pipeline wold not be built until there was a single government in Afghanistan. That seems like a very clear statement to me!

    By accident I came across a site that is quite graphic.Had no idea there was such graphic sites.Essentially I saw page after page of what people all over the world do to each other.Some people had excuses,and some just did it(murder) for the heck of it.Many cases unsolved even in this day of DNA.Corruption at all levels.

    I get a knot in my stomach just recalling it.There are *animals* among every group of humans-everywhere. It is horrible what is going on all over the world and even close to home.Why do people have to be like this towards each other???
