Reading your email reminds us all of just how nuanced this situation is.  The
various interests do not stop at SH, they include the rest of us as well.  If
the other factions within the country rose to power there is no doubt that
some of them would mete out the same sorts of hardships, oppression, and
murder that SH does.  Having said that, I think that none of us would brush
off the suffering, murder, torture. etc etc., nor do I believe that Hoggards
feelings are honestly expressed by such a statement.
