Prote, I wish more folks in the US, who have the power to change things, would do something to promote peace more often. Maybe they are and we don't
hear about it since the media likes ratings, and talking about good things are not the norm for good ratings.
Maloy, much of the world would not be in good shape if the US didn't help them. As far as Iraq goes, I have seen the changes we made there, and the
US is doing more for those people then anyone else has ever done. Have you been to Iraq yet and talked to those people? Africa, I won't go there
since this is a thread on Iran.
Agent_T, last time I checked the US has a judicial system that convicts people beyond any reasonable doubt to get the death penalty, and not every
state has a death penalty. Many Islamic countries will stone you to death for adultery or other crimes that don't need that type of punishment. Which
do you prefer? Do you feel that the US would use any chem/bio weapons during a conflict? The atomic bombs they used stopped a world war, I think that
is a very good reason to use that type of weapon.
Don't trust what you see in the media since the news is a form of control used to make the general public think a certain way. President Bush
mentioned that when he came into office. Intel wars can change policy or governments. Groups in the ME have already used disinformation to sway public
opinion so it's no surprise to me that the general public take what they see on TV for the truth since that is all they know. Not to mention that
some news agencies are runned by the state, not a private company that will report what actually happens.
