    whoops, soory for the double post !

    here is my copy&paste of the day:

    the West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact, non-Westerners never do !!!

    Samuel P. Huntington

    nicely put, and so true (I would be flamed by saying that on another blog :-))

  3. Hi Cederic, re. flaming: Don’t worry, I am sure someone will raise to the occation here too.

    Re. violence: At least we are best in something, right? ;-)

    Re. Read Dear Raed, yeah. I have noticed. Have you noticed that hits and shit also include the same letters? I am sure it can’t be just a coincidence ;D

  4. I click on “dear raed” and up comes Blogspot home page, saying this address is not working, check with Blogspot; which tells me how to start a blog. I couldn’t find a way to ask Blogspot about it. I’d gotten quite fond of raed , though not so fond of the interlopers that started appearing lately. They didn’t seem to be on raed’s level.

    Thanks for your answer.

  5. I think most Americans realize that war is not a computer game even though we haven’t had the tragedy of experiencing it directly in our backyards until 9/11. We do not have to live in fear of leaving our homes or driving down the road and do not have to fall asleep to the sound of bombs, grenades or gunshots due to the safety and security we can partake of on a daily basis thanks to our military. We can all thank Raed for giving the world an objective view of what the inside of this war really looks like. None of us takes this lightly by any means. It is nice to be able to view this conflict through the wide-open eyes of a citizen rather than what the media thinks we should know.
