Back in bye gone days while at the University of Utah I was privileged to know an extremely talented young Japanese American woman.  America is blessed by its youth from origins all over the world.
Her father and mother were Japanese detainees in Idaho during WW II.  While in detention he worked at a variety of potato farms.  After being released he and his wife stayed on in Idaho to become one of the state's most successful potato farmers.
Perhaps Nasr Khalifa just needs to wait awhile.
