I've been pondering
these same questions lately. Is it just American-centrism to be all caught up in this war thing? Are we as out of touch as all the athletes who decry "The whole world doesn't believe in us" forgetting just how big the world is? If Bush issued a mea culpa tomorrow and pulled back would the protesters pack up and go home and pat themselves on the back for a job well-done?
Thanks for putting into sage words the questions I've been trying to ask myself but didn't know how, and for the answer I might not have found otherwise.
