IS THERE AN OPTION C?: Corsair poses the musical question: would you rather raise your children under a quasi-fascist Arab regime or a pathological communist one? Now there's a noggin-scratcher. Corsair sounds like he'd rather have the condition of having a government so relentlessly psychotic and awful that you'd do everything you could to make life better for your children (North Korea) over the looking-backward sending-your-children-to-die-for-glory culture that manages to be assured of its own greatness and incredibly resentful of the developed world's success at the exact same time (your average Arab regime) --and when you put it that way, North Korea does sound like a slightly better place to raise children. But man....I dunno.
