    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?

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

    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.

    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...

    News Iraq liberation without the US

    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...

    News Iraq liberation without the US

    Or in other words, the truly democratic thing would be to have a vote of the people as to what kind of government they would like to have, not what leader in an already presumed democratic republic. If the idea that this is what the people truly want is true, than they would vote for it for sure!

    News Iraq liberation without the US

    I can only give an oppinion here as based on logic; the only factual evidence I have is the dictionary. "free" Are we talking about a culture and a people free to have their own government, or to be told which kind of government to have?

    If we weren't there would there be many "insurgents" to kill? How many of these disproportianate ammount that we slaughtered needed to be slaughtered?

    What does the war on terror have to do with democracy? I have heard people talk about communism saying "it sounds good on paper but it doesn't work in real life" Not to compare democracy to communism but the idea "a democratic society won't have terrorists/as many terrorists" is still...

    News Uh-Oh, are the politicans fibbing again(RE:Iraq)?

    We're not going to change their minds. What I meant was why make it easy? I want to be a millionaire but I'm not likely winning the lottery. It's like we handed the terrorists the ticket to make it easy to realize their ambitions.

    News Uh-Oh, are the politicans fibbing again(RE:Iraq)?

    If these are indeed "terrorist" attacks that have already taken more than 1700 American lives then the terrorists have already claimed more than half the toll from 9/11. So even if we prevent any more attacks on the magnitude of 9/11, we are still giving them a bountiful and endless supply of...

    Hooray for the war! Lets give the terrorists some targets! Before it used to be they would have to save up, sneak into U.S.A, get pilot licenses, etc. and go through all this hassle. Now there's a buffet right here at home! The war on terror is a great idea. Let's give them homefield advantage...

    Best way to dispose of a dead body?

    If you've really filled up your crawl space completely or the attics about to give way and start dumping stiffs on your head then it's time to move to a place with more burial plots. If you rent then you can just prop the corpse up in the lobby. Give him black sunglasses so people will think...

    Strap the corpse to a rocket and blast it into outer space. No one will ever find it (except aliens).

    There are so many tools for parents these days.

    Yes I'm so lame I must reply to my own post. Just had one more thought: If you have cable or satellite, there is an option for cut or uncut. The cable networks still make the programming, and still censor it. There are just two versions. When you sign up for service you get to pick based on your...

    There are so many tools for parents these days. The cable boxes have parental controls. The satellite boxes have parental controls. There are v-chips built into the T.Vs. There is an excellent rating system. Why then must EVERYBODY suffer. I'm not a kid and I have no kids. I lOVE hip-hop but I...
