Thank you, Alan. Was all this _too_ different from that Social
Democrat Prime Minister in Sweden who allowed the Nazis to traverse
the Kiruna area and invade Norway? A traitor to socialism, maybe. But
the builder of modern Sweden, indeed. And not a traitor to the

But I take your point and in fact this posting is just a way to
support it by providing the general framework.
