First and foremost, if the United States was set on removing another hostile regime in the name of fighting terrorism, it should have been that of Kim Jong-il and not Saddam. Today you see why. Not to be mistaken, Saddam did rule his country with an iron fist. However, under Saddam the citizens of Iraq did not run around left and right blowing one another up. He effectively kept people from killing one another. A totalitarian ruler is something that the peoples of the Middle East, Iraq in particular, have adapted themselves to over many centuries, and for a foreign power to intrude on their land and replace this system of government with something new that they consider deviant is not a wise thing to do. The United States and her allies are quickly realizing their miscalculations in this regard.

In Iraq, the U.S. should not have interfered. They should have let time do what it’s best at doing – resolving things. Eventually, there would have been some sort of grassroots movement to topple the totalitarian government, most likely after Saddam was in the ground. What infuriates me the most is that Iraq had so much potential for democracy in the future. In addition, the infrastructure was already there for the needs of the people to be easily met. But what did the military of the United States do? They blew Iraq back to the Stone Age, expecting everything to be restored be the Iraqis overnight. Now, sectarian violence – much of which is being instigated by the United States itself – is serving as the catalyst for an ongoing American occupation. Now that the Iraqis see exactly what America means by “bringing democracy to the region”, they will be sure to stay clear of this form of government in the future – assuming they can ever scrape the oil leaches off their backs that is.

I’m not sure exactly what the people controlling the United States are thinking (the government actually has very little power in comparison with lobbyists in Washington) but I am almost certain it is taking us to a place we do not need to be. There was a time, a time not too very long ago, when the world stood in awe of the sheer splendor of the United States – the beauty of freedom. However, connotations derived from America today consist of greediness, bigotry, and complacency. Do we really need to ask ourselves why?

The people of the United States, and the world for that matter, are being pulled towards the path of a global war by corporations who are hell-bent on all but enslaving the human population through whatever means available. These people do not care whether the United States wins or losses this struggle; most of them will be making profits either way. Unless the people of the United States take their country back very soon, I can assure you, reader, that the future will be even bleaker than the past.

So what do you propose? It sounds to me like you are possibly supporting a socialist or communist revolution here in the United States.

I dont think such a thing would happen unless conditions continue to get worse.

Exactly. This "war on terror" is all about money, power, and manipulation. And, soon, it will be evident that the United States is NOT sucessful in countering those it deems to be "radicals" and "terrorists", as it is only creating more of them. The United States is essentially being screwed over by itself. But - nothing was meant to last forever, right? The "American Century" is coming to an abrupt close. The world will soon be looking towards the giant of the east. Not to sound prejudice, but I for one do not like the thought of that.

No, no. I don't know what I'm proposing. I just think something needs to be done about the system of lobbying in the U.S. That would solve a large portion of the problem right there. You see, almost all the head figures of the U.S. government have been "bought" by various companies (i.e. Haliburton) and are acting not on behalf of the American people, but on behalf of THEIR bosses.

I'm afraid we'll all just have to evolve all together however too close to that ancient Tower of Babel concept. I mean, we've already that gigantic standard called Windows and Office and so how much farther are we to actual unity? Not too far indeed if only to catch up with the many alien races out and about. Japan doesn't have a military budget of which to speak of and nor does Norway, Germany and Eastern Europe as such, it's not like you can pinpoint any particular solution with regards America's conundrums. We must remain vigilient if the progress at hand isn't to be jinxed etc.

They are supporting a Socialist party they are the Democrats and most do not even know it.
en.wikipedia.org...
Clinton was a big supporter of Stalin and Marx and studied them to great length.

Actually - I do have a solution... no I have THE solution to ALL of the world's problems! Mushrooms - thats right. Mushrooms. We should all get together and have a global "trip" day. We would resolve more problems this way than an iternity of heated debate in a "normal" mindset. I'll leave it up to you guys as to how we can taint the world's food supply...

I wasnt aware I was supporting a Socialist party. As far as I'm aware I support no political party. Just a loosely assembled collection of personal/ethical beliefs. I don't like parties. When you join a party you more or less become a "sheep". But thats just my opinion.

You know you may be on to something there. I have spent weeks in negotiations and nothing was ever resolved until we went to the bar and had a few Vodka Gimlets.
I would consider joining for scientific reasons and the betterment of mankind.

Beware.

I'm not making an actual threat, just for the record. I'm simply putting forth an idea which in which I beleive could really help. After an hour or two of talking with MDMA or shrooms in your system, it will not matter what religion or background you come from anymore. You see the world as it is beyond your bias. And that perception of the world may dull over time, but it will never fully go away.

Of course, we very well could give up, but what would be the fun in that? I mean, is that what Stalin did when Hitler launched the brilliant Operation Barbarossa and demolished all of the Russian Air Force is one week? No and we're not going to give up any easier when combating the likes of global warming, desertification, terrorism, and the rest of the inefficiencies that tarry the G-7 countries.
