Jack I believe that it goes without saying that not all political structures are equally valid. That is why we occasionally find it necessary to behave barbarically & go to war. We go to war to enforce a particular set of values over that of the opposition. If we considered all beliefs to be equally valid, we could simply resign ourselves to be subject to the prevailing 'common sense', or whomever was biggest & strongest, (Law of the Jungle).
So yes, I am prejudiced when it comes to Moslemism, Bhudism, & several others. Perhaps you would prefer to move and participate in some other 'equally' desirable system?
These are basic tenents of life that you should have aquired some modicum of understanding of years ago. It is rather naive & sophmoric to hold that all belief systems are equal at your advanced age.

The U.S.A. is presently the prime motivating international force for spreading the Gospel. It was predicted in that musty, irrelevent, 2000 year old book that this would happen just prior to the 'end times'.

Unless we choose to become a very closed & restricted society it is imperative that we retaliate massively for the 911 disaster. It needs to be impressed upon our enemies that any such incursions will result in far more horrible consequences. Sorry if that injures your delicate sense of what is right & wrong Jack but some people only respect 'babaric' force, not diplomacy.
Again, you only have the comfortable armchair right to observe & speculate due to the blood that has been shed (barbarically), to defend a system, (derived from the Bible), which now affords you that luxury.
