I guess you didn't read the article. There is a webpage for it: http://www.nonviolence.org/comment/archives/138.php and the writer's name is in big letters. I'd suggest you send that answer of yours to that website address. I don't know if the author is or not American but you could ask there.
You say: "You almost sound as if you are not even a native American." and the "even" gives you away. I wouldn't say you are racist but after that slip you seem xenophobic, at least ethnocentric and of a nativist mind. Ha! (I am impressed by 'smart' people too and can use a few of those words).
Just before that sentence you said that "the average american knows what is what". You sound like a nice person but your answer makes me wonder how you are with those who speak with an accent or happen not to be of arian descent. I also wonder how you would describe that average american. Hmmm.
Oh, before I forget, I guess you don't know that Hussein was enticed to invade Kuwait, right?
