israel suffers from the same weakness that plagues america. we both have more than enough power to easily defeat our mutual arab enemies, yet we are scared to death to use it. the arab press already accuses us of being brutal, bloodthirsty, and without mercy. the rest of the world believes this as well, while turning a blind eye to the atrocities committed by the so-called "mujahideen". we should do as the romans did. believe me, a vicious, overwhelming assault utilizing all the weaponry at our disposal, abject, total annihilation of resistance, will put an end to the arab (and persian) terror threat forever. and the world will forget how we did it, just thankful that we did. but unfortunately, the cowards who run both our nations will never take this course of action.
