"Mexico revives dual nationality"

From the El Paso Times:

Mexico-born U.S. citizens who missed their chance to reclaim their Mexican nationality last year can try again starting today...

[El Pasoan Maria Caballero] was naturalized seven years ago but last year she decided she wanted her Mexican rights back, she said...

"The big one would be voting. It bothers me to lose this right as a Mexican," Caballero said...

That's confusing. In the second paragraph it said she was a naturalized U.S. citizen, but in the last paragraph she says she's a "Mexican [citizen]". Perhaps to avoid such confusion we should seek to prevent this practice; one can't maintain allegiances to two countries at the same time. But, of course, that's what the Mexican government wants and, of course, the Bush administration won't do anything about it.

John: You wouldn't care to take a look at a particularly egregious example of this... one that's been on the books for nearly 50 years, would you?

I can (putatively) enlist in the Israeli Army without jeopardizing my US citizenship, but I can't enlist in any other army.

Actually, Americans have served in many armies throughout the years without jeopardizing their citizenship. John Walker served in the Afghan Army in active opposition to US forces, and his only penalty was 20 years in prison. He is still an American citizen. Americans served in WWI in the Royal Army on the British side before active American participation, and kept their citizenship. Americans served in the Spanish Civil War and kept their citizenship. They served in the Chinese Air Force during the Sino-Japanese War, and kept their citizenship. They served in the British military before America's entry into WWII, and kept their citizenship.

What is it about Arabs and Muslims that enables them to lie so effortlessly? Don't they realize that this affects their credibility? Do they understand that it has gotten to the point that if they say something we don't already know to be true, we automatically assume it to be a lie? In fact, even when we thought something was true, when they say it, we automatically re-examine the truth of what we believed - such is their loss of credibility.

I'm not saying this is wrong, just that it's not the same rule we apply otherwise.
