69. I hope you can make a difference.

However, every day throughout the World Community people are brutally tortured and murdered ... each day. For trying to make a difference in one person's life, that's to be lauded. :thumbsup:

However, I think that, as a nation, we need to keep focused mostly on OUR Behavior toward our own citizens and consider CHECKING those nations we consider "our allies" with regard to human rights. We should pressure these countries first because we have their friendship and more diplomatic leverage.

I don't mean to be obtuse, but I've lived all over the world, to include Iran (agent Mike can verify - and he will :blush:), therefore, I have a *personal interest* in not seeing this beautiful country blown to "kibbles and bits" with our smart bombs.
