Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I thought we weren't going to read things into each others' comments now?

It's not a reason to not fix the problem, but understanding the scope of the problem better might go a loooong way toward understanding why Americans are so hesitant and intimidated by thought of tackling it.  You are literally talking about radically changing the basic infrastracture of the 3rd largest country in the world.  It can and should be done.  But you are going to have a hard time convincing people if it seems you don't really have a good grasp of what you are proposing.  

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. -Voltaire
