I am not making this up. Yesterday, I watched before falling asleep--yes, Arabs sleep--a hearing on C-Span for the new commander of CENTCOM in the US Senate. During the hearing, Sen. Liberman said--I am almost quoting varbatim--that while it is true that people in the Middle East are very critical of the US, they have great appreciation and respect for the US military. He may have added that people who have received US missiles and bombs over their heads have particular appreciation for the US military.
