I have come to the conclusion that the whole thing needs to be revamped. This latest trouble just pretty much cements the decision for me. I would not be disturbed to have the whole thing pretty much collapse of its own weight. It's about to do that anyway. Libya, Iraq running any issues of world concern? That's clearly a joke. France has long not been a world power. I say let's allow France its precious veto. Let them now honor the commitments that it has made to the world for assistance. Let's be honest here. If there is any conflict anywhere in the world, America must participate if it has any chance of being resolved. America is in an economic strife that was exaggerated on 9/11. There are those who wonder what cost this war will amount to. Any calculation that does not include that tragedy is just not accurate. That was the day (for me) that the meter started running. Terror everywhere was put on notice by the President. He chose IRAQ as the first formal country to start to clean house. There are those throughout our country, and the world, who would debate the starting point. But it has been chosen. Too many times in the past we have not completed a task. This time I am for doing just that. Until the finish! Today we will test massive. There are many other elements being readied. I pray that Saddam decides to move on. But if not, I am not interested in hearing about the need to debate another three or four months. France, Russia, Germany and the like all agree that the American military presence has been the motivation for the Iraqi movement now. They are all calling for America to now hold the posture. Yet not a one has sent check one to cover the costs. When there is trouble on this globe, we are needed. When there is disaster happening, the cry for American help has always been answered. Our monies, tax dollars that many feel would better be spent at home, are given by our politicians and never are we asked is that ok. We are always expected to understand that America being the big kid on the block NEEDS to adjust its posture for the little kids down the street. Why? Because the little kids down the street don't have all the benefits that the big kid does. America MUST share its food, clothes, monies, hopes and dreams and make sure that the other kids have some of its successes. When will they stand up for themselves? When will they ask us the true question? How can we take what we have and move to the next level? And when will they understand that the adjustment and ensuing successes come with some pain? Where do we go for the defaulted debts of these complaining countries that now wish to explain why we need to listen? Clear it up for me, what country sent a check for the World Trade Center Fund? France's contribution was what? Please tell me it was more than a letter of sorrow and a moment of silence! This whole resistance is about America now widening the gap between what France is and what a real superpower is all about. The world power map has changed. I vote we all act like it.
