      TB - I would like to discuss Fethullah G├╝len and his movement in greater detail in that thread. Fascinating - I've never heard of this guy, and I'm pretty well informed about Islamists and their movements. This guy sounds like he might be the Turkish version of Tariq Ramadan.

      I'll check it out - I need to read the Wiki article first.

      Turkic Brat - By the way, I unsubscribe to all the threads I participate in because they flood my e-mailbox with messages.

      CB4 - I wish you well. You tackled a tough subject and your arguments sound well-made, which is what counts.

      Thanks, TB - I've been arguing with my countrymen over Obama's speech last night and I haven't had an opportunity to check the CP.

      hello sorry for the late response, my essay went well.

      To give a quick overview, i discussed the eagerness of US government to go into a nation that has been quite unstable from many years of sectarian violence. The toppling of Saddam, though at that time looked like a viable solution, has only made things worse. You now have a Shi'a gov in Iraq, the first of its kind, SUnni majority in the region is unwilling to give up power, thus more extremist are born everyday. To make matters worse you have new Shi'a factions being created as there is a power struggle among these groups.

      much more can be said, but that the quick overview

      cheers

      Hi CB4 - You certainly did pick an interesting (and infernally complicated) subject for your essay. Definitely let me know how things turned out. I'm going to pop over to your page to discuss this a little further...

    The utopian schemes of leveling and a community of goods, are as visionary and impractical as those which vest all property in the crown. These ideas are arbitrary, despotic, and, in our government unconstitutional.
