First off, in response to someone saying that the media was successful at brain washing some because they said the war on terror was going well, it is
quite the opposite. The media reports on negatives of the war, and most of the people they interview are against the war, and most big papers are
against the Bush administration (ex. New York Times). So no, the media doesn't influence people to support the Bush administration's policies and
war, it is the opposite.
Second off, a person said the War on Terror would end when the EU & China fights against the US, is crazy. I don't see the UK fighting against the
US anytime soon, as their interests are SO similar. And let's face it, without the UK, the EU is nothing.
Third off, I don't really know anymore what this whole War on Terror is meant to be. Maybe it is to increase American influence over the world (in
which if that is the reason then it is achieving the goal), if it is to start a Cold War between countries, such as Japan and China, and India and
Pakistan & China, then again it is succeding. If it is to improve American image in the world, then it is failing miserably. If it is to expand US
coporate influence, then it is succeeding. There have been so many ideas as to the true nature of the war. Nobody really knows. Maybe it is a
combination of all those things. Maybe the American government and intelligence forces saw Russia's and China's influence grow and their hate for
America as a superpower and wanted to combat it with countries surrounding them with US provided weapons and intelligence.
All I know, is that the world is like an oil well, and it seems that if someone just lit a match it would explode. And it is scary, and
And I am not saying that America is the main cause, I am saying greed of power is. But isn't that ALWAYS the cause.
