Second attempt at that little quiz. Hopefully I have phrased the questions better this time around, since I apparently phrased things incorrectly last time. Please respond with only yes or no answers, and perhaps further notes at the end of your responses if you wish. 1) Have US economic and military activities caused social/economic problems in the Middle East? 2) If your answer to Q1 was yes, is the US administration aware enough of the world around them to be aware that their activities have caused problems in the Middle East? Skip if your answer to Q1 was no. 3) If your answer to Q1 was no, then do a nation's economic and military activities only positively affect other nations? 4) Has any Middle Eastern state ever attacked the USA? 5) Has the USA ever attacked any Middle Eastern state? 6) If your answer to Q4 was yes, then has the USA attacked more Middle Eastern states than Middle Eastern states have attacked the USA? 7) Do you think the USA's military activities in the Middle East will encourage military aggression, regular or irregular, against the USA? 8) If your answer to Q7 was yes, then do you think the USA administration is aware of this possibility/probability? 9) If your answer to Q7 was no, then do you think all people in countries attacked by the USA should simply sit there and take it? 10) Are you a citizen of the USA? 11) Are you a citizen of England? 12) Are you a citizen of Australia? 13) Do you think the current president of the USA (Bush) faithfullly represents the interests of the people of the USA? 14) Do you think the current prime minister of England (Blair) faithfullly represents the interests of the people of England? 15) Do you think the current prime minister of Australia (Howard) faithfullly represents the interests of the people of Australia? 16) Are President Bush and Dick Cheney financially involved with companies profiting from the invasion of Iraq? 17) Are companies which supplied the USA military's invasion of Iraq, and supply the re-stocking of arms afterward, involved in contributing campaign funds to Bush and Cheney?
