Quote I think that the Western colonial powers _established_ the boundaries without much reference to territorial areas of influence.

Spot on. Different tribes and customs, even language in many cases. 

Even though lines were made on maps, the age old disputes didn't diminish.

Quote
But equally problematic was Woodrow Wilson's advocation of ethnic self-determination which served as the basis for, "we can't live with you anymore, because you are different."

So it was really a numbers game. We're bigger than you so do as we say.

But one would have thought in this modern age, these issues could be settled amicably-not by car bombs and suicide bombers.

I often wonder why I try.

It's not the modern age in most of the middle east. The Saudis just now give women permission to drive cars. I was surprised to hear that they are the last muslim nation to do so.

Funny that. Some of the oldest known civilisations in the world seemed to have come to a stand-still 500 years ago. Why?

Terrorism has not really succeeded anywhere in the world, so why have they not changed tactics?

Does it suit the rulers to have their countries in perpetual turmoil?

Quote The Saudis just now give women permission to drive cars.

What next??? Perhaps they'll be allowed to vote!

Haven't they seen what that's done to the western world? LOL

FYI "Old Men in Hats" are the group identified as causing the most car accidents. Wink 
It's their nutty religion and sadistic cultural hang ups. They want a world of Turbans. 
Someday Old Men in Turbans will cause the most car accidents.

It must be hell driving in  The States.

It'll take a lot to beat women who use their indicator handle to hang their hand-bags on, looking backwards all of the time to scream at kids, talking animatedly with a friend seated next to them. LOL

I saw a woman reading the newspaper while driving. Not kidding. But I have to tell you it was a foreigner, I could tell by all the crap on the dashboard. 

I rolled up real quiet behind her then....
BEEP! LOL she almost jumped out of her headscarf.
