    My Swedish Friend, you do understand of course, that without that "fanaticism" on the part of the Americans, particularly President Reagan (whom many Europeans also found "fanatical") you might be speaking Russian today. Or German. In the current crisis, there are a group of people in the Middle East who want to kill people in my country - and have, with no reasonable provocation in 1993, in 1996, in 1999, in 2000 and 2001. We cannot "negotiate" our way out of this, and, like Israel, are not prepared to live subject to the whims of people who mean to harm us. You live in Sweden - a marvelous country, from what I hear - but also a country that is not in the path of the tornado. You may have the luxury of sitting out a battle of right and wrong, as some chose to in WWII and the Cold War. We don't have that luxury. You can call that view fanaticism or neoconservatism or whatever you wish. But it's bailed the free world out three times in the last century.
