Well I still stand behind my statement. I don't think the other Arab's give
a rats ass. They just don't want to be a part of the U.S. beating up on
another arab nation. It's the language of state. We don't condone the U.S.
action. That way they get to keep their hands clean. They aren't stupid
enough not to think this wacko would use nerve gas on their people if he
thought he could get away witih it.



the me that you know used to have feelings but the blood has stopped pumping and he's left to decay the me that you used to know doesn't come around much that part of me isn't here anymore. NIN
