    File-sharing's moral status?

    I wouldn't say it's "stealing" because you're not taking something away. A CD costs $14.67 USD after taxes at Best Buy. That's more than I make in an hour so I'm not buying it if I have a house to pay for! Linkin Park & their label didn't get their money. I download the songs on high speed...

    Please explain the nature of 600,000 executions, cite a source or tell me what it represents/who was killed. Lets say in 2000, 2001 2002 and the months immediatly prior to the coalition invasion, Huessein was executing 2500 Iraqis per month?

    News China more popular than U.S. overseas

    Yeah I believe it. Logically thinking, USA probably isn't at the top of the world's favorite countries list.

    Are you trying to make up technicalities to dance around actually addressing the things I said in response to your initial post?

    Did you mean "narcissistic" as in love with myself? If so please explain this! Or what other word did you mean? Topic dodging? I responded to your original REQUEST, but still there was no question!

    News Iraq liberation without the US

    Newsflash: there was no question in the original post! But to defend these postions, and answer your initial post like I tried to do before, I can say Iraq did not need to be "freed" at all. They weren't freed. They were forced into one type of government. Now they're forced into another type of...

    Answer: They weren't. Coalition forces have not arranged this and will they? Maybe in a utopia they can ACTUALLY choose their government.

    WHat question? You've asked so far this thread: "And how was that suppose to happen?" I don't know what "that" refers to and one other question to BobG.

    News Iraq liberation without the US

    I cited Muqtada al-Sadr in the other thread and I'd like to use him again. This is an issue that wouldn't have been the issue that it was without coalition occupation of the region, an example of one way this "liberation" has bread more violence. The bloody uprising was an act of insurrection...

    The rise to power of Saddam was not different than the rise to power of Democracy in our current age. Both were by force. We should really examine the violence level between the two.

    They didn't "choose" their government in either case. The first thing they "chose" were which elected officials in a democratic republic.

    News Iraq liberation without the US

    My biggest objection was that this "liberation" caused a region with less violence to become a region with more violence and more terrorism. It wasn't this way with Saddam's regime (although still bad i concede!) excluding war with Iran so aside from the gas attack that is so frequently...

    News Iraq liberation without the US

    ! How sure are you for this region of the world? What other forced democracies in the middle east can serve as examples? Like when I compared it to communism, democracy in ME sounds great on paper. Whether it works in this region so far, is unproven as insurgency/terrorism is still...
