You are really lacking in any sort of perspective, it is readily apparent.
Now think about that statement. It is patently false on its face. Everyone has a 'perspective'.

Do you just talk because it makes you feel important?

Oh, and hey, hero, when do you ship out for the gulf?
If you'll re-read my post in order to understand it, you will see that I never suggested that I would be shipping out. FYI, I performed my service to my country with five years of active duty and three years of reserve.

I suppose you served yours with complaining and protests?

LOL, so Cheney's cronies have there fingers in every pot...nothing new there. He pushed for the sanctions to be lifted so he could make a bck, after all.

American companies have no problems with dealing with dictatorships.

Kat, you're right. My mistake for not getting the facts right about the oil part...

Ahh...I see. So this war is being fought because the powers that be figured the casualty count would be more acceptable. Damn! And I almost believed Bush when he said it's about evil Saddam and his dangerous weapons of mass destruction.
What rules of logic allow you to draw that conclusion? Zero's maybe?

Why Alias, I was just following your argument. You're the one that brought up the issue of stomaching 50 casualties against 250,000 casualties...

Gimme a break!

I see your lips moving but your not saying anything. Another trick learned from Zero?

If we ask them not to, will they promise to stop?

I see you typing but it's still back to Zero. Why, you have some sort of repressed fixation with this Zero person?

None of them are protecting my freedom. Iraq has not attacked Australia. Nor has Iraq attacked the USA.

I apologise for calling you a moron. A more accurate and polite term would have been "blind patriot".

"strident" might be better than "blind"...he means well, but I think his enthusiasm takes away perspective. I happen tothink all politics is mostly lies, personally. Follow the money...

Quite often it is 'all about money', but I'm not so sure that's completely amoral. 10,000 years ago we might have said, "Yeah, it's all about food."

On the other hand, how can we claim to know facts or motivations about anything, when there is so much money involved?
