Hello everyone, I've had an interest in conspiracies and such for quite some time. I'm quite the sceptic person when it comes to the US Government, I'm from the UK by the way. But still, ever since the invasion of Iraq (officially to liberate the people, but we all know it was for oil) I've grown an interest in politics in the US... and now what with the news of Osama Bin Laden's death... a million questions I'm asking.

Anyway, that's just a low-down on me. Hope to learn from you all.

Hi,

I have also just joined and hail from the UK.

Hope you enjoy your time here


Take care,
Reflected

Honestly, really pissed off! Why should they get money from us for anything? We should strip them of there titles and give Buckingham Palace away to the homeless.

But i guess it's better than funding illegal wars

Is the anti-royalist movement bigger now?

I thought so, that was until the wedding and no one seemed to care that we paid for it!

I think generally in the UK people really don't think about it that much, too busy watching Soaps on TV and getting drunk in the towns...

Mind you there where some pretty interesting riots when the students had to pay more for university, poor buggers.

In response to your comments on the Royal Wedding, I don't mind, I'm only a student so it doesn't really affect me. I personally think William's a lucky bugger... Kate Middleton is RAWR! But on to Bin Laden... why no proof? No body? Very conveniently buried at sea... and I know that standard operating procedure (SOP, I shall be using lots of acronyms on here) is to shoot twice, once above the left eye and once in the chest (as far as I understand)... but come on, the man was unarmed.

Question him, interrogate him, but why kill him, unless that was the order given, I have nothing against Barack Obama (but that's a very George Bush type of move) if the sole purpose of the op was to assassinate him, then America has a lot to answer for, why kill him? I mean I understand that this is is the top man on their 'Most Wanted' list, but still...

Anyway, I also have an interest in black operations carried out by the CIA (Gulf of Tonkin incident, false flag op), extraordinary rendition is another one of my pet peeves. I don't understand how the intelligence agencies of the United States can whisk anyone away they damn well please and interrogate them for information. Then when those turn up innocent, throw "In the interest of National Security" down our throats and expect us to conform.

Disgraceful, violates every human right in the book. I don't give a damn whether they have been ruled "Enemy combatants" or not. It's just plain wrong, in every moral sense.

Anyway, now that I'm done ranting, looking forward to hearing your views.
