The Year 1975

Karol at Spot On posted some very interesting facts about the year 1975. An interesting perspective on how much we have changed, or not. Do read the comments too.

Back in '75, as a newly minted college graduate, I vaguely remember some of this stuff.

The point about negotiating w/terrorists at that time is telling.

A great article articulating the change in policy can be found in the 2/3/04 WSJ, entitled, "A Historian's Take on Islam Steers U.S. in Terrorism Fight," resulting from Bernard Lewis' philosphy.
