    Living in the US, I ahve many friends of many different cultures. One of my very good friends, parnets left Iran to look for a better like and ended up in the US. I was with this friend the other day and he had this to say about the the whole "war" in the middle east. Until the radical islamist learn that life on earth is much more rewarding than after life, this war will never end. And if you think about it, this is true. What other culture will send man after man with a bomb strapped to his chest, or a plane strapped to his hands as a weapon of mass destruction. This is the life of the radical Isamists. By dying, they are gaining more than they are losing, and thats a scary thought. These men who appraoched the boarder mine as well have been strapped with a bomb runnign through a mall. Everytime they approach the boarder, its the same outcome. The Hamas are not dumb by any stretch of the imagination. They know this and either want sympathy from the world or waht top keep testing Israel. Either way, these men agree to this mission because they know by doing it, they will go to a "better place." Life is to precious for this.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
