I find it funny that other countries push the U.S. away until they want our help. Then we're accused of not doing anything or not doing enough. BTW, there was a review of a book in today's Wall Street Journal called "The Force of Finance" which argues that people and free flow of ideas outweighs minerals or "land you
*could* grow weeds on". Look at all the high-tech coming out of the region...
