    Just the normal Newsweek "spin" on issues...

    to begin with a Looming photo of 30 (I think I counted right) people from South Korea (if they truly are, we have thousands more Koreans than that in Fayetteville, NC.) does not indicate that the Majority of South Korea's, nor the World's population agrees with "NO WAR"...as this photo seems to indicate.

    And to put it all in a nutshell, NewsWeeks editors would not allow anything to take up the Front Page that was not also their Personal Opinion, along with "By Fareed Zakaria NEWSWEEK".

    As for me, and all others, we all have opinions, just that others have a larger, more public and much more expensive "Soap Box".

    DA thinks BusinessWeek is a left wing "liberal" publication.

    Is Newsweek now also considered to be Communist Propoganda?

    Remember: Just because someone had the audacity to actually question GWB doesn't AUTOMATICALLY make them an Anti-American terrorist or some kind of Marxist.

    How could we be right and the entire rest of the world be wrong?

    Easy.

    Reread the first paragraph of that article. The facts are with us.

    "America's unprecedented power scares the world...."

    Irrational fear is with everyone else. They just don't want one nation to have so much power.

    All I can say is, "Get used to it." And, "Sorry - that's just the way it is."

    if china decides its land mass isn't big enough for its billions and they try to invade australia, nobody in the world would spill their blood to help you except the usa. and yet you are constantly wishing bad on us.

    I guess we are at a new point in history with the fairly recent outbreak of widespread terrorism as a means of fighting wars on any ground. As easy as it is to critisize the GWB Jr administration, I feeling more comfortable having a take charge guy like him in office rather than a person who was doing nothing. I think we are making tremendous progress in the war against terrorism.
