Best post about this was from 'Conflicted'

Well thought out and level headed. I would have given him a lot more credit but then.


"Were not chicken to fight a big war"

Doh!

Not quite there, had to resort back to being in fantasy land about who is 'hard' who spends billions on war and who is ready to kick a country who's population would just like to have 3 meals a day and not be harrased by the leader of their country, ducking a diving from US airstrikes because its always a good idea to go wading into other people's business because other wise what's a massive army going to do all year? Life isnt all hamburgers and TV in the world you know!

More pointless poop

About civilization, Martin Luther King wrote “We must rapidly begin the shift from a "thing-oriented" society to a "person-oriented" society. When machines and computers; profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.” The depth of meaning many of his writings maintain even now often stuns me into a sense of continuing to try to grasp what we are trying to do here.

Take the lovely and innocent Jill Carroll for example, the kidnapped AMERICAN Christian Science Monitor freelance journalist whose deadline for payment has come and gone.

Will her fate be the same as the dozens of other murdered innocents who through no fault of their own were beheaded by our enemy? Can you imagine such a facility for achieving such tasks? A tactical war room with bloodstained walls long since abandoning all hope of civilization and its purpose and meanings.

Besides the obvious danger of an inevitable nuclear Middle East with the big boy bombs in the hands of the likes of Zarquai and Bin Laden. There is also the subtler requirement of forcing interaction lest we be overrun by madness; to wit, the riots in France last year, or the even more pointless aspect of the gassing of the Kurds in northern Iraq.

To quote another author, Howard Winters, “Civilization is the process in which one gradually increases the number of people included in the term 'we' or 'us' and at the same time decreases those labeled 'you' or 'them' until that category has no one left in it.” I guess he forgot to mention the bloody part.

If our lives are at risk and they are or will be if we do not act continuously and rigorously on this problem, then what other choices do we have? There is an answer to that question, and it will unfold in failure.
