Dear David,
That was appreciated.    I am not a enormously wide on foreign affairs and keep quiet - v quiet about the Irag/USA/GB situation and
also our own peculiar position with with original peoples in NZ.
I have slightly unusual thoughts and your setting out a broad view without blame or intolerance was great.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and the rest of your life also.
Cheerfully   Phyllis.

Don`t mistake the occasional bumbling by America in Iraq as indicative of  lack of a long term strategy . They have had too much time to ponder the mistakes of the First Gulf War to not capitalise on that lesson .  Pity though they did not learn from one previous mistake of incursion from the borders and having to sustain initiatives while protecting their flank from a  literally disturbed hornet `s nest . Like Israel ,whose only immediate friendly neighbour is the Mediterranean coastline to the West . America  is flying near solo, with no UN sanction, in an Iraq invasion now gone sour and cannot retreat with dignity as she fosters more enemies by the day . She has created a brotherhood of those who were traditional enemies of one another now united in their own common cause . Iraq has become a catalyst for hosting the malcontents over the last couple of centuries who felt the west has always defined the world for them . America realises the nuclear threat grows internally -as well as the more clandestine terrorist threat within her own shores . Remember America has never been invaded in war conditions . Her soldier dead were always buried on foreign shores . The American psyche cannot handle the ill-defined or unknown . The Hawks  at home have flown their nest long ago . They are represented within the religious , the traditional armament and long serving career ranks of the military at home . Diaspora Zionist and wealthy have their role behind Bush as well in the total context of a fortress Middle East . There is nothing hick about the  vested interest groups that now use Texan George Bush President  with his ten gallon hat as their pawn.  We now have a crusade on our hands .
