--How wrong is it for your own nation to assume a 
leading role in bringing about reasonable peace 
throughout the world?  Any person who has assumed a 
leadership role, be it doctor, lawyer or teacher, knows 
what leadership means.  It means that there will be 
supporters as well as those who counter your 
role....that's to be expected.  Didn't someone say not 
too long ago:  "You are either with us or against us"? 
Maybe it was our president when we rallied to invade 
Iraq.  Only difficulty with this stance is that it just 
might create another Civil War.
