I've been wondering the same thing, Don. Surely even the most patriotic American must realize that this country has policies that are not always on the high road(think Abu Graib?sp). Granted, the terrorists don't take the high road either. But someone with intelligence should realize that it's time for a dialogue. I don't beleive they just "hate us". There are reasons. It's a shame that the United Nations never seems to "do anything". Look what's happening in Sudan. We need a world body with balls that will tackle humanitarian and political problems decisively and quickly. I can dream, anyway.
