tvoivozhd---while this self-criticism would have got the authers killed 
a year back, there will be no perceptible reduction in Islamic  
guerrilla warfare for the foreseeable future.  Arab society is like a 
giant ship travelling at thirty knots---even it you throw the rudder 
hard over (five degrees is more likely), it will take fifty years for 
any attempt to remake Arab society and Arab mores to have any degree of 
success  Do not firget it is firmly locked a thousand years in the past 
by an Imam and Ayatollah dominated priesthood, most of which would 
rather move backwards  rather than forwards.  It is possible that the 
anti-cleric youth in Iran may overturn the old regime and be a model for 
change.  Iraq could be a model if the Kurds were in charge, but with 
repressive Shiite factions exertting real power, that remains unlikely.
