You are right in that we have not yet seen the interesting part.  Lots of
people think we have the potential to "transform the region" although in
which direction is not yet clear.

I think the real lasting change will be in forcing the USA to come to terms
with being the last world power.  That's what the debate should really be

And the Patriot acts, lets not forget the historic undoing of our nations
charter. I mean think about it, the boxcutter gang spends a tiny bit of
cash, takes down a major landmark and Shocks and Awes the target nation
into such a state of hysteria they go and dismantle the very thing that
makes thier country worthwhile. They flapped the butterflys wing and let
the tsunami feed itself.

I gota say, thats effeciency for ya.

Also lets not forget that if you follow the logicbeing used, Bin Laden was
behind the terrorists of 9/11, so there fore he is behind the froces that
gutted our nations charter. He is also behind the forces that had us outs
Saddam, some one Bin Laden did not like and is on record as wnating to get
out of power.


Bin Ladden gets a hit on American soil which guts the charter of america
and ousts Saddam from power in Iraq...

I mean, thats pretty effecient. All that really needs to happen now is the
factions in Iraq to start fighting each other such that every Islamic
state and group will see fit to send in "help" and from that arises the
Uber Islamic front with one thought on thier mind "Romanes Eunt Domus"

Well ok, it wont be in latin and probably spelled right.
