Lets face the facts - the US may think of itself as a super-power but when it comes down to actually get their hands dirty and bloody at ground level fighting they are hopeless. They didn't learn anything from the Vietnam defeat, Lebanon pullout, Somalia and Iran disasters and now Iraq. All that firepower. aircraft carriers. nuclear tipped rockets etc. etc. is of little use in house to house streetfighting and getting the "hearts and minds" thing up and running. Stick to what you are good at i.e. business, fantasies from Hollywood etc. and pull out of yet another disaster caused by your Evangelical do-gooding around the world. They dont want Democracy etc George W. Understand that simple fact and you may just get to understand the situation at long last.
