See Terbius? You CAN'T argue with logic like that!! That's why I pretty much choose to not respond to airheads like these two. They wouldn't know a fact or a fallacy if they met one. In order to have an intelligent discussion BOTH parties MUST be intelligent. Obviously only half the panel showed up.
Gray Eagle, opps, er, I mean, Little Hawk, Your points are well taken and many of them fit the current situation. You could even argue that King George and George Dubya have some points in common too. But like King George III, his own personal stamp has only a little to do with it. The leadership of a nation is not a one-man show. Your eyes are only as good as the intelligence appartus you employ. Your advisers military, political and international do much to shape policy. Then there is Congressional advise and consent and a host of other forces at play. We all try to do the best we can with what we have (if we are good people, that is) and we are constantly evaluating and making adjustments. Meanwhile the Peanut Gallery is , well, throwing peanuts and everybody is a critic, including me. We live in tricky and perilous times and NO ONE has a crystal ball. We do, however, have history and yes, nations rise and fall. Its been stated that people eventually get the government they deserve. God help us.
