the 360degree parallell

Hitler's racist views propelled his move towards world domination.The move explicity stated by him but was poo-pooed by "intellectuals" and many politicians as too crass and benighted to deserve consideration. This resulted in the policy known as "appeasement" a diplomatic form of surrender to fear which permitted Hitler to gobble up; in 1936 the Rhineland, in 1938 Austria and Chechoslovakia, and culminated in 1939 with Poland precipatating WW2. The Taliban moslem's religous, racist views have propelled its move to world domination, explicity stated, but poo-poo'd by "intellectuals" and many politicians as too crass and benighted to deserve consideration. This has resulted in a policy of "appeasement" in which the West must apologise for offending Taliban sensibilities by allowing freedom of expression . However the Taliban moslem supporters are truly offended by the existence of a western civilisation which does not abide by their rules. Is it incumbent upon the West to apologise for their insensitivity or on the Taliban to show tolerance and co-existence with other beliefs and end WW3?

we have met the enemy

It's us. The incessant internicine warfare between the political left and right is tearing this country apart. From the rantings of that archetype of sore losers, Al Gore, to the idiocies of Pat Robertson there is no surcease from the one note boobs. it makes no difference if a governmental action is wise or foolish the haters of the left and right will criticise. Osama ben lodin is a piker when it comess to unwavering intolerance of others right to exist . Lessons are freely given in congressional hearings daily. The senatorial inquisitors of left and right endeavor to tear apart any poor soul who gets into their self righteous clutches. They ignore their own responsibility for results that come from their own actions in their zeal for media coverage and a desire to cover their nether parts. Cry, the beloved country.
