#1 given that a large, maybe majority, of the population believe both that Israel was behind the 9-11 atrocities and that Osama is to be praised for those same events, we should not be surprised to hear/see strange interpretations of historical events

#5 I know, from hearing their version of it multiple times, that they believe that was part of the agreement they worked out with the US at the time of the war after they almost destroyed Israel and forced the US to the brink of war with the Soviets at the time, in order to save their client.
They believe that only massive US material and logistical aid by a Nixon Administration concerned with not losing the Cold War kept Israel from collapsing.

#6 The problem with fighting Arabs is they view reality differently. If you slaughtered them all, all except one, and then left the one would claim it a glorious victory that he drove you off of Islamic land.
It creates a more militaristic region but I suspect ensures their militaries are never as effective as they might be if they looked and learned from the game tapes.

#7 Your assuming a lot there RJ, like assuming even if they did learn tactics that they'd demean themselves with upkeep. You know, manual labor. I hear they aren't so keen on that.
