Hi Pr, "Well, at least we agree on one point! :)" Sure sign of the apocalypse, no doubt. Record this thread for future reference, as we seem to have few of these moments. :) "Or even in the US if need be. The truth of the matter is we really don't know anything about why he was in those camps." Um, but he was in the camps. "Does being brainwashed count? "

Hi Pr, I agree that death threats are serious and should be taken that way. It is most unfortunate that the Canadian authorities aren't taking these threats more seriously, and I believe they should be. But this particular quote strikes me as ominous- "Khadr told reporters neither he nor his family has any links to terrorism, but admitted he spent three months in 1998 learning to use R

Hi Anthony, Yes, I read all of the Xanth series as well as the Incantations of the Immortalities series as well. But I have to say, by far, his most intruiging story was Macroscope. It is somewhat of a sci-fi novel set in the future where we have somehow figured out how to travel light speeds through space..absolutely fascinating theories...... Tim

Hi Steve, "Put your money where your mouth is Tim. Lets explore the issue of mass graves, without distractions and graphic images." Maybe we can do this without people accusing me if I'm pro-war? I was simply trying to elaborate on one of the more positive aspects of removing Saddam, and that is that these graves are no longer being filled with innocent Iraqis. It is a valid a

Hi E-Rok, You wrote- "On Aug 8th in response to Bent asking : "Is the cartoonist alluding to the thousands killed by American bombs ?" you said: "No, and it wasn't "thousands".

By this same twisted logic, one would have to include Clinton and his administration, George Senior, and a host of other administrations for there influence in US foreign policy that was involved with terrorism. After all, Bush only held office for nine months before this happened, and it is well documented that the plan came from years in advance. You would have a better chance of blamin

Hi Mod, "It is getting really bothersome to hear your tired litany of justifications and obfuscations." Yeah the truth is bothersome, I know...especially when you're sworn to ignore every fact presented.

Hi Don, I would be disappointed in my reasoning if someone like yourself agreed with me. "But no it was used for bombs and destrcution to get one man out of power because he dared to want to use The Euro instead of the shrinking american dollar as payment for oil." Right, this whole war was over the fact that Saddam wanted to change what currency he was using............

Hi Pr, "That makes you pro-war, Tim. There are people around the world who believe that the US government is behaving like a 'fascist dictator' deciding who can and who can't mistreat it's people (remember, the US calls human rights abusers like 'Saudi Arabia' allies). Does that give those countries the right to invade the US and change the government?" Is the US filling up mass

Yes, I supported the war to remove a fascist dictator. I am not pro-war. I would have preferred any other way to remove him, but nothing else would work. I felt that using our military to remove Saddam was the most viable option, and this would cause the least amount of bloodshed necessary to remove Saddam. Any other method (some of which had already been tried and failed) were causing far mo

Hi Modeldon, Iraq isn't Vietnam, for the umpteenth time. Here is an article which elaborates this point better than I could.... The jist is, Iraq is a MUCH different battle than Vietnam. The comparisons are not apt at all. Tim

Hi Aarooga, You ask- "Why do you have this personal attack against ananda. All you pro war/pro government lot, all you do is slate people here at GV. I don't recall posts from any peace people that go to these lengths." Until ananda either apologizes or justifies calling me a racist, I will continue to call her out.

Hey Folks, Recently I posted a link that is a collection of photographs that continues to log the mass graves that are being uncovered in Iraq since Saddam was removed. Apparently the moderators felt that the link was too graphic for visitors to this MB. I can understand why they feel this way, yet I vehemently disagree. There are extremely graphic pictures of piles of corpses being bulldozed

Hi magdalen, "2 countries are missing to your list US and GB." No, I include the US and GB in the countries who waited too long to remove Saddam. The difference is, these two countries largely stopped supporting Saddam before the first Gulf War, the rest continued to support him well beyond his imminent departure. There were Russian military advisors flown out of Iraq days before t

Hi ananda, "I wonder if it's possible for a Patriot (tm) to see that Iraqi's are people too, deserving of the same respect as anyone." Patriot (tm)? What the hell is that?

Hey Folks, So I'm reading these Iraqi blogs lately, Zeyad and Omar over at these two sites- and they are both trying to organize an "ANTI-TERROR" Demonstration on December 10th. In Iraq. Because terrorism there is preventing their country from becoming normal again. Seriously, when is the last time we had an " "ANTI-TERROR" Demonstration??? Was there as

Hi ananda, You ought to read more than what you;re reading, becuase this following stanza is completely untrue.

Hi anom, Took the words right out of my mouth, you did...... "IMO, people like you in the Democratic party are responsible for our weak position in the upcoming election." I voted for Gore, in fact I have voted for Democrats my whole life. But I cannot justify putting our entire country in danger just to get rid of Bush.

Derek, You don't have the money. Period. It's not a question of only those under the age of forty being capable of being economically productive. It's a question of payouts vs. pay-in's. In 2050 for every one payout (retiree) you will need four pay-ins to keep the system afloat. With the numbers I provided, this will be an impossibility. We are struggling with the same problem i

Hi ananda, You probably won't respond to my post, but I'll put this out anyways. "From the Islamic perspective, Iraq looks like a grave...

Hi Drakl/Ahmed, "Thanks for the right wing drivel, Tim" Ah. Now you're judging the weblogs from Iraq too! How open-minded of you drakl. How you manage to put a political affiliation to a newly formed weblog in a recently liberated country is quite interesting. Why don't you go tell Zayed about his new political party!
