    I attended Mr. Beinarts speech, and listened to it again on this Web site. I found it interesting, but couldn’t help but think his argument was fundamentally flawed. It is my personal opinion that this war is in no way like the Cold War, nor is the world we live in a similar world to the world during the cold war. Thus, following the exact lessons of Truman would end up hurting this country more than if we experimented with new ways to respond.

    We are constantly under the threat of Attack from Al Qaeda — people who are so brainwashed and crazy that whey would have no problem destroying America or her allies (Israel). This is a new type of threat, radical Islam. Granted the Soviets were not nice people, nor did they like America, what kept America safe during the cold war was the theory of mutually assured destruction. We do not have that convenience in this war.
