What kinda garbage is that? "no one is right and no one is wrong"??? There is a Right and Wrong in life young man...there is a Good and Evil. We conservatives tend to view the world in these terms, while the "elite" tend to look at everything in shades of grey. That may work in the Political Studies Dept at NYU, but it does not work in the real world.

Thats just the problem with you conservatives, you see things in black and white. You cannot label a country as "good" or "evil" In every country there are pockets of people with positive uplifting intentions (good), and of course there are those who seek only personal power and greed (evil)
Thats why I cant write america off as a bunch of greedy ignorant pricks, because if I look long enough, there are little pockets of intelligent, hopeful people, although the numbers are dwindling, theres still some folks who at least "try" to better themselves.

Good and evil are such childish terms, We cant define whats good or evil, because it relates only to us, and our own preferences, One person might think a massive population reduction put in place by an elite group of people is "evil" While the planet, and all of its other inhabitants might see it as a new lease on life.

There was a time when terms like "good and evil" were non-existant.
People did not see life in this way, there was only "action and consequnce"

I honestly believe, a HUGE roadblock to humans becoming enlightened, is getting over the concept of good and evil. Its about as hindering as thinking the world is flat.

I believe the fact that US forces would be massively outnumbered in a hostile country being aided by a superpower would sorta tip that against you, eh? Or do you not remember Afghanistan?

At least the ChiComs come at us straight, offer us benefits, and don't try to coerce Canada into ridiculous ABMS's and wars.

What does that mean? lol, im not canadian but im French, does that make me angry or confused?

Lets look at an average French persons educational history compared to american joes, ok I think the french have us beat on the confused part.
Next how about the anger? well if you look at statisitcs alone, I believe the anger is here in the homeland. So it looks like the average american is more confused and angry than the average frenchman,

and with good reason!!!

This is not garbage it is simple facts..

The world is grey...tell me is the British army "good" ?
Is the american army "good"?
Is the french army "good"?

Oooh, you walked right into this one DW, just watch the anti-french sentiment fly!

But yes, your right, they always see things in black and white when there is no such thing. Only children think like that (I should know, I have one), but then again, the US has behaved like a spoilt child lately, so I can't be surprised.

They also conveniantly forget all the crap and trouble the US causes around the globe, then act all surprised and hurt when something comes back to bite them on the arse!

When was that, if I might ask?
Ancient philosophy has debated the notion of "good" and "evil" for thousands of years. They still are doing so. In the case of "action and consequence," morals and ethics do come into play. As such, moral and ethics are relative to "good" and "evil" and "good" and "bad" and "right" and "wrong".

You have two cases here:
Motive---->Action---->Intention
and
Motive---->Act---->Consequences

Where "right" and "wrong" or "good" and "bad" or "good" and "evil" are/is determined solely or based upon the intended consequences of the action or act.

I'm rather interested in when was there a time that terms such as "good" and "evil" were non-existent.

Com'on DJ, don't make me shoot you down over the Ivory Coast again, we've been there, done that, and got the underpants....

But if you insist.....


The French are there as part of a UN peacekeeping force. They are seperating rebels in the north from the "Government" (it has to be added that the Government are just as much a bunch of thugs, rapists and thieves as anyone).

When the French attacked the Ivory Coast AF (all 3 planes of it
), that was in response to a Government breach of the ceasefire, in which the aircraft where used to bomb a rebel held town. In this attack, 9 French soldiers and several civilians were killed. In the French response, no IC troops where even bruised, let alone killed.

Those people you show are the same kind of people that prance around in Zimbabwe, or the Congo making it out as if they are oppressed or victimised. The truth is, its them doing the oppressing and victimising. The rebels have a valid grievance against a government which is corrupt, unnacountable and resposible for many civilian deaths, deliberately targeted in this war.

Objectiveness or simple bashing?
Really a "black and white" case or a matter of you, as others, simply choosing to forget the "crap and trouble" you Europeans have wrought around the world, huh?

In any case, please don't leave out those infamous Europeans [UK included] and the troubles they have caused around the world, mkay?
The problems in Africa today are directly linked to European i[UK included] involvement in the past, etc.....

Well aware of that and you won't see me deny it either. BUT, we are actually the worlds leader at trying to sort that mess out now, so we accept what we have done and are trying to make ammends (although, not as well as what could be done)

Oh...ok...I can somewhat agree with that, but hey, what are you currently doing in Africa to remedy what is and has been transpiring, if I might ask?

With the closure of colonial imperialism, Africa became one huge sucking sound [indicating a void] as the Europeans [UK included] pulled out. Guess what, the sucking sound [indicating a void] can still be heard.

The way I see it, we don't have to plead with countries like France. We are America, either with us or against us. You are either an allie or not, and France is the latter.

Seekerof, take a read of this and you'll see what we are trying to do to remedy the situation. It is an uphill struggle though, but at least things have started down the right track

Stumason, I appreciate the links, thank you.

My apologies if I came across a bit harsh or overbearing, but my intention was to bang a reality check into the phase of the discussion.

Nothing personal was meant, given, or intended towards you, mate.
Thank you again for your, as with everyone else, continued contributions and for keeping me on my toes.

Peace.

Well said Omega1

DW, Im not gonna let you drag this thread down this "right-and-wrong" road, because it will never recover. The point of this thread is to show that France and Germany can no longer be considered friends if they sell weapons to China.

SOS Rice seems to be concerned about this....maybe she see's and hears things that we don't. Do you think she warned France and Germany for the fun of it? She was dead serious and blunt in her warning.

She knows China is getting ready to fight America, otherwise she would not have givin this warning to France and Germany not to sell weapons to China......put the peices to together and you will see Im right.
