Since when has Guatemala affected our current status in the world? To my knowledge, Iraq has a far more profound influenceo n our country as a whole, and as our role as a country in the entire world. I never stated liberality was the correct way, but judging from all your responses, if you aren't solely conservative, you are extremely conservative in nature with very little liberal notions.
