It's nice that I finally find an article that is both "pro-American" and intelligent. Yet I can't help feeling that the author is pointing the way to self-destruction. It is true that what he describes as "4th generation warfare" will allow a weak group to take on a stronger opponent, as for example the Spanish Guerilla during the Napolionic wars
I think its rather simple why we didn't send troops to Rwanda - If we couldn't quell the political violence of Somalia, then is it really practical to head into Rwanda..to quell their violence, when the result would've been the same?! It would've been "Black hawk Down" all over again...
Your report about the Russian guy trying to cross border with 64 bottles of Vodka prompts me to recall this drama from our Mexican/California border:Legendary Mexican actor/producer Emelio Fernandez lived in border town Tijuana, not far from Los Angeles.
Lately there has been some critique of the chap named George Person. To include Mr. Person adding information thereof, I intentionally left out or neglected to mention. I decided to address Mr. Person directly with questions on the opinions, statements and/or remarks he had made in many of his own articles.
On Earth, its natural to want to protect an endangered species....whether that be the bald eagle or the tiger or the great whale - once a species becomes extinct, we feel a personal loss and a sense of guilt that we didn't try to preserve a noble and beautiful creature from extinction when it was within our power to do so....
That is not the point and YOU KNOW IT!I struggle with technologies within my own home, so this is anongoing battle with me. It has extended beyond my community but we all have different levels of enjoyment, right?
Your article is very interesting but you fail to explain Barroso's unpopular government in the context of his country's situation left by the precedent team.When you have to reduce public debt acording to EU rules in such a great extent, you have no way to be popular, not even to make any policy!
Normally, clairvoyance and future-see are not very accurate – it is not an exact science. From the Delphi through Nostradamus, mankind has always sought to foresee events yet to be. Whether to prevent tragedy or to seek glory and fame, the ability to predict the future has been one of man’s greatest quests.
I just read your article: The State of Bush vs the State of Law As an American, I am indeed concerned that our Bush administration is a tyranny. However, your argument that assumes that there was an intention to do good by the Bush Junta totally misleads every reader.
The statement of saying that we have/Indians have so much to thank the white man for, I think is possibly a tunnel vision approach and doesn't grasp the full spectrum of the lessons to be learned from each other.
Dear Editor,I would like to bring to your notice that India would be celebrating 57 years of independence on Aug-15-2004.The non-violent struggle against the mighty British empire (struggle led by Mahatma Gandhi and other leaders and inspired by countless sacrifises) was a source of inspiration and courage to many freedom and civil rights movements
