Hey, I actually knew a guy named Greg who studied with me in Turkey, with the same attitude. I think maybe America, and Americans like you, should lose your hubris. America suffered thousands of casualties, and that is tragic. But it's hard to ignore the fact that America didn't take Israel's advice in fighting terrorism, given that the USA has almost no experience in the matter. If we're going to try to measure casualties in this contest, I could remind you of the number of soldiers and civilians killed in Israel in the ongoing war against terrorism (hint: it's more than america's). But the fact of the matter is that not only has Israel got more bloody experience, Israel also has more efficiency in handling such threats. Also remember that Israel's 1988 bombing runs destroyed Iraq's only real WMD, not the current war. And America's military and intelligence counter-terrorism teams train with Israeli instructors. Your idea that the seeing should follow the blind is silly.
