I think one of the main problems of ATS beside the conspiracy terrorism
is that nearly all are focused on a few topics.
So to say: War in Iraq, Terrorism, the Bush Administration, NWO and Ufos. Maybe a few other ones as well but there isn't much will to think about
other important topics.
Hey maybe there isn't much going on in Asia but I rarely read anything here about political changes that could be important, over there. And there
happened a lot.
A new chinese fighter, very interesting but not really for world politics.
The EU got bigger, covered here just a little and if - people connected it with topics like "EU vs. USA, who would win". That's so retarted from
the kids here.
Cypriots voted against re-unification, that was nearly uncovered as well...and Cyprus is the only divided country left in the western world.
And ATS members weren't able to see the influence of this vote on EU politics and turkey.
We had ethnic cleanings going on in africa since decades, anyway ATS members bring it up like it is breaking news, just because somebody from the big
networks was bored and covered it in his reports. And what happens? "oh the french were there before, let's rant about that."
or "the americans stepped there before, let's blame everything on them".
That ATS faces the same topics over and over just with different titles is basically a result of the nearly pure western membership. Nothing bad about
it but we could use some people from the other continents as well. Maybe somebody has friends over there, invite them to ATS. Somebody knows a forum
that people from those countries use regulary, post the link to ATS.
ATS would be way better with some people from Pakistan, Iran, Jordan, African countries and south american that would help in serious discussions and
let the conspiracies become uninteresting.
