Think of his comment as a warning. Having somehow turned much of Islam into a foe, Washington has essentially assured itself of never-ending crises that it stands no chance whatsoever of winning. In this sense, Iraq was not an aberration, but the historic zenith and nadir for a way of thinking that is only now slowing waning. For decades to come, the US will have a big enough military to ensure that our decline is slow, bloody, ugly, and reluctant, if inevitable. One day, however, even the drones will have to land.

Silly human.... We have better relations with Libya and Tunisia and the Egyptian people that we have had in decades. Irag is more pro-west than any time since the Baathist took over years ago. We have more friends in Afghanistan than enemies. The governments of Kuwait, Saudi and the other on the Arabian peninsula are more closely allied to us than ever.

I think we may have lost Pakistan but that is the Brits fault for setting it up as ungovernable from the start!

Our president visited Indonesia the largest Moslem country in the world during his first term and was well received.

AlQaida is getting weaker but there is still venom in the fangs, we must kill the rest of them ... and I think we will.
