The problem with the peace movement

Since when is a communist movement hurting Americas interest? Maybe you finally get rid of that old communist = evil idea. These people have another idea about their way of life than you have. Does that make them evil? Or are people only any good as long as they don''t portray an opinion opposite to the government one?

Since they have defended every muderous dictator in the last fifty years and think the deaths over over 100 million people that can be linked to Communism and Socialism is just fine.

I hate Communist. But, I''m not afraid of them.

The US defended Hussein and granted him weapons of mass destruction. The even did nothing when he used said weapons against his own people. They defended Noriega until he rallied against them. They raised the Taleban and Al Qaeda to counter the Sovjet invasion in Afghanistan. The US gov thinks several thousand dead civilans that can be linked to a ""noble cause"" are just fine. Do you hate the US gov, too?
And as I said before: there is none and never was any communist state in this world. Get over it. There are no real communists on this planet :).

What they call them selves doesn''t matter. It''s results.

About Saddam: That was called ""containment"" and he was better than the people he was fighting. We gave weapons to Stallin, why? Because we wanted Hitler to lose. We never raised the Taleban or Al Qaeda, this is a myth. We trained people to fight the Russians *then* they went nuts.

I don''t believe in getting rid of one dictator for an other. I believe in getting rid of dictators and establishing western style democratic republics.

Lol can''t argue with that one.

With better you mean he was the only one that could be bought.

If you look up some reports from people living in that area, they will all tell you that the people that the CIA hired were nuts from the start. The CIA just ignored that because they were the only ones that could be bought as well. I hope the book by Latour gets translated to english. He is permanently in that region and very factual. One gets some really nice info about what the people there think about the situation.

I am, too, but our ways to reach that differ a lot ;).

He was fighting Iran. I dont'' believe in making deals with dictators, they''ll shoot you in the back.

As long as we keep running in circles and shifting blame, the problem cant get solved.

The slate needs to be whiped clean. Then we can truly say, "" Ok now how do we fix it?""

Hindsight is 20/20. Alot of past decisions were mistakes. All countries support people they shouldn''t have. All countries buy support from people they shouldn''t. All countries have sold weapons to those who cause strife.

You cant go about life judging decisions or waiting for a good decision to have negative consequences and then hold a grudge. Honestly, we all know that any choice, large or small, will stir up negative outcomes if given enough time to pass. Its the way of the world. Look at fashion and music fads.

It is fair too easy to support someone who is disguising their true, harmful intentions. It is fair too easy to neglect or overlook someone helping his people grow.

Questioning authority is a wonderful freedom and should be practiced without concern. Questioning authority by default and out of habit only serves to lessen credibility. Be wary of looking like the boy who cried wolf.

discussing is too late anyway now as it seems. As it currently stands I expect a short war, due to the low resources of the Iraq army. What concerns me is what comes afterwards, but we will see.
I wish your soldiers best of luck in this operation and I hope they get out of this with as few losses as possible. I certainly do not agree with this operation, but in the end I consider the US friends and the least I or anyone here in Germany wants is seeing friends gettings harmed.
