Subject: RE: BS: Time to re-deploy to Sudan
That's a little too all-encompassing for comfort, CarolC; you just condemned each and every US citizen to the hottest regions of hell. I'mm sure you didn't mean it quite the way it read (though to add credence to your statement you might draw attention the other meaning of "US", as in "we-us"). Just joking!

Creeping a little from the thread, it strikes me that 50 years ago we Europeans were condemning the US for being too inward-looking and we wanted them to get out and help. While now we are closer to a situation where we'd prefer them to stay at hope and stop "helping". Ironic, isn't it?
