1. When will Americans become ashamed of being American?
2. The day you become ashamed the better the world will be.
3. The Global society are mislead, they are deprived of history because of those who create it.
Why are you ashamed of yourself when you should be ashamed of what your country stands for?
All the people of the Earth have been "Mugged" Humanity robbed of it's identity...

yes, Israel is the main country that wants the war. The U.S is just going to assist and so will the British. I bet you will be surprised if Iran already had a nuke. From the sources I have they claim they have nukes. They never build it themselves but currently trying to manufacture it themselves. China and Russia helps with this process. The war or attack is more of Israel vs Iran. Thats the only reason I think this way.
I personally don't want to see a war with Iran. I don't fell like paying more taxes to the U.S.
I already know there is a huge tax hike for 2011.
Just ignore kindred. He isn't interested in facts. I personally think he loves to push his opinions on others and try to make everyone believe his opinions 100% even if it's wrong.

Iran and American tactics have always been like a game of chess. Information like this is rarely ever let out as tptb know that there is always someone listening. I think this was just a move to show Iran, America has a battle plan already implemented and they are just waiting for irans "move".
However I won't deny that violence has increased under New Labour, but then what do you expect from such a moronic and corrupt government. I'm glad to see the back of them.
So you acknowledge your mistake in your overall naive assessment that you live in a "safer" society. Glad to hear it!
Again, I am not talking about Homicides, but rather crime in general, and per every 100,000 residents, it is a fact that the UK has one of the highest crime rates in the world.
I have shown an EU study that supports this, yet you seem to base your beliefs on some irrational mistrust and disbelief. There is a word for this. Its called "denial."

Sir, from whence does your self-assured position of China and Russia's trepidation vis-a-vis the 'mighty US' derive?
Are you blissfully unaware that an all out war with US (taken to and beyond our domestic shore) is the main basis of all that thier war colleges have taught for 30 years? This, is the scenario for which they conduct their massive military exercises.
If you think that Russia's 'broken-down' military is incapable of a devastating delivery of a nuclear first-strike then you hopelessly, yet successfully well-conditioned by your culture and its so-called 'news' machine.

As an englishman I understand what you have said and yes we as nation have as all nations have oppressed other people/countries if it is to our benefit. All nations of the world this century and all past centuries have.
You have to remember that we mainly built our empire on the fact we understood about hygiene and keep s**t away from food unlike for example the french(just used them to my advantage lol). We did have a large empire but really we were a sea power.
When threads start blaming whole countries for problems around the world it does put me off reading anymore of the thread.
Just had to say that, sorry for being off topic.

So we're actually planning a war on Iran. There is a plan of attack already in the talks within our government. So much for transparency, huh?
Not only would this be considered a start to WW3, but it basically sets off what has been written in various prediction threads. Did this guy just slip up? You decide!

Mullen's admission is the bluntest statement yet on Iran by an official of the Obama administration. The usual White House line is that "all options remain on the table," according to The Guardian.

Maybe you should do some research before jumping to the conclusion that the EU commission is a credible source. Then you will see just how corrupt it is.
From the very beginning I have been talking about violent crimes, where as you are also including "trivial" offences instead of serious crimes like murder, rape, bank robbery etc. I wouldn't exactly call peeing on the sidewalk, being drunk and disorderly, or dropping litter violent crimes. When New Labour came to power, the police became obsessed with trivial offences, simply to meet government targets. That is the main reason why statistically the crime rate went up, but they are non violent crimes and therefore nothing to do with living in a violent society.
Police 'forced to target trivial offences'
In its mania for jailing people, Britain has declared trivial offences crimes
You claim the UK is more violent, and your using trivial offences to back up your argument, which doesn't make any sense, as they are mainly non violent crimes.
