That's what true allies do, they help one another. What allies do we have there besides Israel? Even the "moderate" Arab governments support and condone the various outlets of threats to us. By the same reasoning outlined in your post, we were wrong in helping England leading up to World War 2. After all, I imagined we allienated Hitler. But then, folks like Pat Buchannon...an ANTI-"NEO CON" if ever there was one, says the same thing. I for one feel it's about time we alligned ourselves with TRUE allies. This is clear cut, regardless of all the effort being put forward trying to cloud the issue.
