Good, thepart about having to pick a side and face your convictions, I mean. the one thing that makes me wonder though, is why? why do you feel that you are your brother's keeper? although, I suppose that it should be followed with another question? How far do you go being the keeper of a man you don't know, in deciding what is best for him?
Furthermore, I do concede that cutting and running would be bad, given the recent developments, however, why force them into democracy, or a republic, which, is probably more acurate, since I think we're trying to set up a republic over there, not a true democracy. Why not just give them a new king? I mean, if they were really that bothered by a monarchal system, they would do something about it. It's happened thousandds of times throughout history. And, I believe that having to stand on their own feet is the only manner which they can possibly determine what they will tolerate in a government as a people. Believe me, I love history, especially concerning tactics, and revolutions. The communists overthrew the Czar, the Chinese empire, and Vietnamese empiralists, and korean, not because they fought for comunism, or the spread of the USSR, but because they fought for a people, and believed that communism would bring peace to them. The french through out the king through upheaval. The americans ousted the Brits, and the Confederaates nearly ousted the Americans. Daniel Shays nearly ousted the Constitutional Confederation, Comunist Korea nearly held a coup against Democratic Korea, Countless Slave revolts nearly succeded, and a few actually did, I believe Haiti was one example, but would have to double check and don't have time now. Countless peasant revolts in Feudal Asia, Russia and Eurpoe failed, And a few groups have succeded in ousting eempires from their doorway, such as the Jewish revolt in Roman Jerusalem. I believe that that is the essence of society. Either the oppressed are strong enough to stand on their own, and by virtue of blood win their freedom, or they die in a revolution to have their children oppressed. The only other option is to change oppressors. I believe that it makes little difference to the smallfolk, the ony people who cae are the ones in power and the ones they convince to care.
As a parting note(I have to go or I will be late to class) my best regards to your brother, I hope he comes back to you safely.
Salaam.

Thanks for commenting on my poem.
Actually, it is a spoken word poem. Heh.
I wrote it with exactly that objective in mind.
Thank You again.
I can't wait to read some of your work.
