In this thread i'd like to raise the topic of hatred between countries. I have no links, no evidence of any kind, it is purely my opinion.

On several forums- this included, I have noticed visible arguments between nations. Generally on here arguments revolve around weaponry and who is the best military super power. Death is often wished on others quite openly.

I have to admit the majority of thread revolve around 'the axis of evil', with both sides firlmy hostile against each other. Even trouble with religion is quite rife and i'm also sure creed is in a more subtle form of abuse.

So what am I getting at? Well the term 'divide and conquer' has been used by several nations to achieve global power. Setting rivals off against each other and then swooping in for the kill. Could we be see these lines being formed around our eyes?

The U.S probably being the biggest superpower (and I do not wish to cause further debates!), probably has the most rival factions opposed to it. Now i'm not from the U.S so it is not my specialist field, but I have noticed hostile attitudes regarding Mexicans, much of the Middle East and even several European countries are distancing themselves from the cause. I have also noticed alot of Christian 'bashing', i'm not sure of any other creed.

I am personally from England, I state England because I am English. I have never seen such a bashing from both Welsh/ Scottish over the recent World cup debate and the hatred actually shown. Now people state it is only a game/ friendly 'banter' is always apparent. This is not what I saw however. Religion also seems to draw a big line within our society, generally due to 9/11, 7/11 hype.

I am also sure other countries have similar problems as the grass is never greener on the other side.

So, my point, well if an organisation is planning on taking over the world, why would they attack everyone at once, why not get them do the work for you and then invade yourself? If we were to fight and to win we'd need to have good communication and stand together. If not we may possibly fall.

Now i'm sure many people may dismiss this straight away, others may state these conflicts have always been around, and yes I do agree with the majority. I just wish to raise the point that in my eyes things seem to be esculating all the time. And even if I am utterly wrong, well it can't do much tharm if we all actually get along.

It's nice to see a new viewpoint in abovetopsecret.com though I have to disagree on a few points.

Though the U.S has a small number of determined oponnents (i.e Iran, China, Norht Korea) most of the world is actually allied or controlled by the U.S (Probably because it is the only superpower).

I'm not from the U.S either (Go N.Z! :cool
but I've seen more Muslim bashing on the forums than Christian bashing (Not saying there isn't any either).

The reason for Divide and Conquer, is because people of different nations are not wanted to be united, by our governments.

The reason Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated, Divide and Conquer. Keep the people seperated, segregated, and not trusting each other.

It's easier to rule a populace, if they are divided against one another, and can't join ideas together, and pay attention together to what the government is up to.

They do not want the people united, unless it's under government rule.

If it wasn't under government control, they could not control us.

I do not see anything wrong with black, white, red, or yellow getting along together. I am white Myself, yet I do not hate black people, nor do I call Chinese people "chinks" which is a gross ignorance of people to do so.

Racial profiling does work to an extent, but it does not show the inside of a person.

I was at a Junior High, with a mixture of half white, half black, and the white kids were the ones who'd pick on Me, kick Me when I was down, hurt Me when I was vulnerable...so My loyalties do not lay with one race over another, even though it was the black kids who helped Me, who stuck up for Me, and were My friends.

I hold no allegiance to a race...I hold allegiance to mankind and humanity.

I judge not a color of skin. Inside beneath the skin, we're all red-blooded people, inside our skull we've all got grey and pink brain matter.

Judge not someone for their race, but for their actions or inactions.

Judge not lest ye be judged.
