I thought this was supposed to be for dialogue. If you're not going to address the question(s), what's the point?Is there some nation out there whose intelligence services you would suggest as a model [for the US]?Do you believe that the Kurds should have a homeland of their own, or at the least some degree of autonomous rule w/in Iraq?Should Hussein be tried for crimes against humanity for gassing civilian Kurds? How do you propose that that happen?And just for the hell of it, in terms of whom I choose to support overseas, morally, politically, or financially, when is it my business? And when is it not?
