Thanks for an intersting post.I think you will find the number of deaths in Iraq since the US invasion is ten times your stated number of 100 000. I also think the fear of "Islamists" taking over Tunisia is overstated, and comparison with Iran, Afghanistan and Iraq is not valid. The US influence on all three was far more than in N Africa.

Has anyone noticed that it seems like the ones he's making war on are more likely to be dominated by women than are the ones he's exempting?
