most of what we gave iraq was distroyed by iran. cant really speak for that country. as for the taliban. the out-dated equipment we sold them was all but usless when russia left. most of our fighting were aginst BMP's and t-72's that is russian armor btw. the russians burried them in sand pits and caves by the thousands. stacks and stacks of them you couldnt even fathom the numbers that were found. anyways most of that stuff was left mostly intact and the climate there didnt affect it much. what could be secured was given to the new government. and my house is made of mostly wood and drywall but there are a few glass windows. so you can step off your high horse and join the rest of the world..

Dont blame the weapons, they are inanimate objects. If the arms manufacturing nations dont want their arms being used against them, then dont bloody well build them or sell them.

I am about to have a rant now. What really pisses me off is this AMERICA AND ITS WAR ON TERROR bulls***. Where the F*** were you when the UK was fighting terror for over 40 years against the PIRA? Oh yeah, thats right, you were wining and dining the PIRA leadership in the White House and supplying Armalites and M60's to them.

So dont give me this war on terror crap as if the US is the first nation to ever come across this. Most of the European nations have been fighting this for years.

Or is it because of our war on terror by going after the terrorists overseas and all of the pre-emptive surveillance measures.


I`ll pick a) "Is it because America was never in danger of having suicide bombers like in Israel because there really are no terrorists trying to attack America and it's all a fabrication?"

suicide bombers are people who had their families blown to smitherines
and seek revenge on the MONSTERS who did it...
and you say these are the TERRORIST who are COMING to AMERICA
ok.......

theres no threat
its always been that way...no different now... well a little different considering the mess the PTB have made...
if they had not made this mess then there would be no threat whatsoever..

pretty soon TPTB will have the world so whipped up that ....YES
we will be under attack from outsiders.....

but only because TPTB made it happen.....

man ...this sucks .....

I wonder...Do you think its to late to late to choose peace?
I`m not even sure myself anymore.

I know TPTB create all this...but I`m starting to wonder if its too late
to fix .................too damaged, too broken
that they have already won but we just do not accept it......

like I said before..
PLEASE try to IMAGINE how scared and terrified the people
of Iran must be right now and every minute lately...

little kids..........moms and dads........sons and daughters.....

knowing that ANY MINUTE the BOMBS could start to fall on them.
I can`t even think of what that must FEEL like....

the FEAR must be INTENSE.......
sorry for ranting... but this is VERY EMOTIONAL

Hey look!

It seems that there are more children in the world getting trained with weapons.

Why do some people think this happens only in Iran ?

I saw this post when it first began and I didn't have a chance to say something. I really think this is a great thread. It's good to hear something positive for once in awhile


In regards to kids with guns: have you guys seen these photographs taken by Gottfried Helnwein?

www.helnwein.com...

He's an artist from Germany (I think) and deals a lot with issues regarding children. He has some amazing oil paintings if you get a chance to look around. I know these photos have Marilyn Manson in them, which is another topic all together, but the look on his face and the little girl's is great. Anyways, wonderful thread and I really enjoyed seeing these pictures!!

From what I have been reading, it seems that the CIA and MI5 have promised the Baluchi people in Iran (one of the nation's several unhappy minorities)... they have promised the Baluchis an independent nation i.e., Baluchistan.

Now such a promise is a very powerful opiate to those who long for independence from an oppressive Persian government in Teheran.

When one adds up the Azeris and the Baluchis and the other unhappy minorities, I think Iran looks extremely unstanble. But once a nation is attacked by another nation, quickly all of those minority divisions tend to vanish and a nation is suddenly truly born where there was before only an association of conquered peoples under the most recent iteration of an Empire.

What? Huh? Where have you been hiding?

List of terror plots since 9/11

terror attacks before 9/11

I guess the same goes for all the people Iran has terrorized by supporting numerous terrorist groups like Hezzbolah and let's not forget all the killing they are doing in Iraq to innocent civilians.

Great thread, shame you'd never see anything positive about Iran and such places in the media
Almost makes me want to take a holiday there

Obviously the majority of the IRA and it's divisions were heinous criminals, and committed unfathomable atrocities, but that came mostly out of the treatment of Nationalists by the British government; their situation breeded extremism (for a minority) as it does everywhere else where minorities are oppressed. So the British/NI Govt shared the blame with the Republican and Loyalist terrorists, please don't make it out that a single group or organisation were to blame. Though thankfully terrorism is largely a thing of the past here.

(Sorry for going off topic there, I was just a little annoyed)

Prescott Bush, the Rockefellers and Standard oil funded the NAZI... the Bush clan has been in the mix ever since.. He got into office because they put him there or do you really think he is smart enough to have done it on his own?




And when he leaves office in a few months (We HOPE
) he has already got his new outfit ready...

Because Israel is on our side?

You know there has been no peace in that region for the last 2000 years... what makes anyone think that ANYTHING will change anytime soon?

I agree that we are not the target on home soil...
I don't believe 'they' did 9/11

But Washington and Israel.. well you asked for a reason for all this...

I would look there... any good gum shoe will tell you...

FOLLOW THE MONEY

And speaking of money... bend over America, because gas will hit 7-8 dollars before we even begin to get mad enough to THINK about doing something about it

This guy, Kaliq Sheik Mohamed, who is being brought up on trial for plotting 9/11 is an example of the CIA tricking a Baluchistani into being a patsy.
Baluchistan is being attacked from both sides, Iran and Pakistan.
So, they are going to look for some sort of relief, from whoever is willing to offer it to them.
So Kaliq got sucked into 9/11, thinking they were going to get rewarded.
They were just used to give cover to the real CIA black op.
I feel sorry for these people and they are getting the shaft.
I do not think America has a good track record for keeping their promise to help uprisings.
Look at Hungaria and the Shiites after the first Gulf War.

sorry, i have not yet read all the replies. this one just really upset me. it is not our job to govern the world, or have you just jumped on a bandwagon before understanding the history of your country?

[America] goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. She will commend the general cause by the countenance of her voice, and the benignant sympathy of her example. She well knows that by once enlisting under other banners than her own, were they even the banners of foreign independence, she would involve herself beyond the power of extrication, in all the wars of interest and intrigue, of individual avarice, envy, and ambition, which assume the colors and usurp the standard of freedom. ~ John Quincy Adams

Regardless of your feelings of Iran, we were not meant to "govern" them or any other country. We were meant to defend what our founding fathers gave us......... ON OUR SOIL.

America was the refuge for the rest of the world.......if someone wanted freedom from tryranny, that is was the land they should have been able to run to. A safe haven. The concept was never meant to be imposed upon the rest of the world.

The true concept of this nation has been lost and I wonder if it will ever be found again.




TO THE OP: great thread. starred and flagged

Who are we governing?

The Germans and Japanese are governing themselves. Iraq is setting up a government and thus governing themselves. Seems like the same old thing so what are you talking about?
Please enlighten me and tell me what country we have taken over and are governing by imposing our system?

using this definition: "to prevail or have decisive influence : control." i remember, after no weapons of mass destruction were found, Bush, during an interview said that we were there "to bring freedom to the iraqi people." that is a form of governing.

if what you say is true, then why are we still there? why are our men and women dying everyday? now, i know the reasons behind the reasons, but this is what is being fed to us and by the principles on which this country was founded, even the "given" reasons are wrong.

if they are truly setting up their own government, then we should have no reason being there. we, as a country, were never meant to fight foreign wars. the reasons being is because of what we see here in the world today.......... manipulation, lies, and abuse of power that benefit only a handful of ppl.

No, it's not and your argument is such a stretch for 'governing' that it's ludicrous.


if they are truly setting up their own government, then we should have no reason being there.

The words you need to focus on is 'setting up'. Their government is not fully in place yet. Once their government is completely established we will leave. Anytime before that would be crazy because everything up to this point will have been for nothing.


we, as a country, were never meant to fight foreign wars.

I don't know about that but we sure in the hell needed to fight WWI and WWII.

i'll give you that "govern" could have been a stretch although not intended to be such. so, i'll concede that point for arguements sake.

and i could discuss the world wars if you'd like to start a new topic on it.


back to the topic of the OP: again, John Quincy Adams (one of the founding fathers of this country) says it best IMO...

"[America] goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy."
