Welcome To Boghie on Your Six!

First of all we must accept that Iraq is a focal point in the region. The eyes of modern Islam turn to Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Iran for guidance. Prior to 2003 there was an axis of Sunni militancy consisting of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Syria that fermented terror to expand their variant of Islam on the edge of the proverbial sword. Iran competed aggressively to promote their own variant. Please review a map to see the geographical significance of Iraq. Please note the annual pilgrimages to Najaf as a demonstration of the religious significance of Iraq. Please study your texts on Babylon, Asyria, and the Abbasid Caliphate centered in Baghdad as examples of historical significance.

This is spot on. The tides that are Sunni Islam and Shi'ite Islam clash in Iraq. To think this fight makes either Islamic variant more moderate is not correct. Lately the two variants have stalemated each other and the radicals are lashing out at a common enemy, the non-Islamic.

Boghie finished by asking a question of
the Left, are you proud of Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Dresden, Stalin's gulags, and the Iron Curtain? Dithering in the 1930s resulted in invasive surgery in the 1940s. Back then it was the Paleolithic Right, now it is the Conflicted Left. Do you want your generation to be remembered as we remember Charles Lindberg, and Henry Ford, and even grand pappa Bush. I hope not...
