      Eah time you touch on the Iraq Invasion your coherent argument on the War on Terror collapses!I mean in your book: THE PENTAGON,S NEW MAP.
      I have sufferred at the hands of Osama bin far longer than the families of the victims of 9/11 .
      Two villains have been behind this horrendous brutalization:Bin Laden& Mr. Tony Blair.
      Britain belongs right to your so called “functioning core”,while A-lQaida operates in the “Gap”
      In Turkey Mr. Blair took the fight against me to new levels by delibrately supporting Al-Qaida exactly at the time he was fighting his supporting war in Iraq and helping Mr. Bush.
      Exporting security and economic globlization do not fit in with what both the former American and British Adminstrations were doing.
      Not even defending American land ,interests and security.Mr. Bush,s first ally turne out to be the stronger adherent of Al-Qaida when it comes to the push.
      Mr. U-Thant of the UN once observed in 1969: Of the nations of the globe,the English are more inclined for blood letting.
      Personally,I believe that no body will ever trump their British Protestant brutality!!
