Klinton ("BK" hereafter, as in BK Broiler at Burger King!) may be the
prez, but America is still AMERICA, land of the free and proud. I
believe that US is the envy of country out there; but, at the same time,
it's also the world leader, the world power. We must lead by example.

Does any country really have a choice? It's either align yourself with
the US and its allies against such horror, or risk going it alone and
playing lone ranger. The former gives you a chance, while the latter is
foolish and impulsive.

Certainly hope he has the sense to realize that we are the US, a country
with hope and strength and the resolve to do what's necessary to
maintain international order (and by no means am I supporting the idea
the we must assume the role of peacekeepers 'round the world -- ugh,
that's the farthest from the truth). Instead we need to convince our
allies the importance of standing firm and sending a clear, concise
message to SH and his crew.

Again, SH better think long and hard whether he wants the wrath of our
forces on him like bees on honey. It's not BK he'll be facing but folks
like myself and others in our great armed forces. All I can say is God

There's no real way of saying. It's easy to say "of course not"
considering BK's track record, but with SH one never knows (or at least
it seems like it so far).
But if Reagan were still Prez, that's a whole different question -- I
don't think we would have heard a peep from SH would Pres. Reagan were
still in office. Remember with the Lybia thing -- what RR said, "They
thought America was going to be passive, THEY THOUGHT WRONG!!!"

Folks, please keep in mind (and this *is* important) it wouldn't be a
military strike for BK, but for the entire free world that every
American feverently believes in and supports.

We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. Not to worry, if anyting,
BK is an orator!!
