We Were not put on This Earth for Them

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak says that Arabs hate Americans more now than ever. First of all, so what? How has intentionally America hurt any Arab? If America was not the economic powerhouse that we are, the oil rich countries would have the money to support Wabbism. We were ATTACKED! Are we supposed to take it and ask for more? Were we supposed to let it slide? Although there is legitimate debate regarding the war on terror, there can be no debate that we are in a war. If Muslims hate us for attacking the extremists in their midst, then so be it. If the Arab street wants to relive the Crusades, then they may be biting off more than they can chew. After World War II this country said never again to allowing madmen threaten the world.
