QWAK,Governments always LIE about WAR, they SPIN and EXAGERATE, even CREATE and PERCIPITATE situations that will JUSTIFY (?) actions that other wise would NOT be TOLERATED!
This is TRUE about WARS down threw history even thow each time they say "IT is DIFERENT", it is always the SAME, they use "HEATED EMOTIONS" to disguise and SHIFT the BLAME off of THEM SELVES and their ACTIONS which are almost always percipitated out of GREED and a total lack of understanding and compassion for OTHERS who are PERCIEVED as STRANGE or DIFERENT, so of LESSOR VALUE and of no concern because THEY have been defined that way in MEDIA campains to DEHUMANISE them and GLOSS over their NEEDS and lagitimate complaints about how things are being done which NEGITIVELY impact their lives.
No matter how they SPIN IT or try to JUSTIFY and HIDE the TRUTH ---- WAR is about GREED! It is about GETING MORE at the EXPENCE of OTHERS who have been MARGINALISED to the extent that THEY are no longer seen or percieved as PEOPLE but rather MONSTERS who dererve to either DIE or get the HELL out of the way so VICTORY can be achieved and PROFITS be made!
The USA has become an EMPIRE in DECLINE and like all empires befor this one, the ones IN POWER will do ANY THING and SPEND what ever it takes to KEEP and STAY in power. It is the PRIME DIRECTIVE of EVERY BUROCRACY to ---- "EXPAND or DIE" --- "maintain the BUROCRACY at any and all cost" --- PEOPLE only count SUPERFICIALY, it is the BUROCRACY the MUST SURVIVE!
THAT is WRONG, but the people who are EMOTIONALY charged are delibritly MISGUIDED are always BLINDED to the TRUTH because IF they were NOT, they would refuse to PERTICIPATE!

Yep, bad spellers are among the most easily misguided. Bad spellers who don't even use a spell checker are even dumber, as they knowingly exhibit a disdain for literacy.
The survey, commissioned by Bar-Ilan University's BESA Center and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), also found that 59 percent of Israelis still believe the war in Iraq was justified.
Some 65 percent believe that the United States is a loyal ally of Israel, with only 11 percent saying the opposite. A slightly higher proportion, 73 percent, described U.S. President George W. Bush as friendly. Forty-eight percent attributed U.S. support for Israel to strategic considerations, while 30 percent credited American Jewry.
Regarding America's importance to Israel, there was near consensus: 91 percent said that close relations with the U.S. are vital to Israel's security.
It's relevant to note here that in 2002-2003 support for a US invasion of Iraq was the highest in the world in Israel at 80%. The second highest support was in the US at supposedly 51%. And support in the rest of the world including Europe was less than 10%. So it seems that Israeli public wishes are what determines American war action and that's what makes this survery alarming.
Arafart, your anti-US, pro Isalamofascist slant is often confused and bewidering. Your post here referencing the "only 3 surviving communist countries" has me stumped. I count China, Cuba, Vietnam and N. Korea which, according to my elementary school addition, totals 4. Was one of these countries recently absorbed by another or does it have something to do with your particular Islamofascist slant.
QWAK,People are just TOO predictable when EMOTIONS take over, LOGIC and COMMON sence are lost and they do STUPID things which either cause them problems or EXAGERATE percieved problems.
People who react emotionaly are easaly MINIPULATED to their own expence so others can get THEIR WAY.
Bottom line, when people react EMOTIONALY to situations they always OVER REACT and cause even biger problems in the long run!
QWAK,ALL burocracies become SELF SERVING and PERPETUATING regardless of STATED PURPOSE and PEOPLE become less important as the burocracy grows untill people become DISPOSABLE and nothing more than STATISTICS!
GOVERNMENTS do NOT protect people or provide FREEDOM!
PEOPLE protect GOVERNMENTS and SURENDER their FREEDOM to GOVERNMENTS!
Makes one THINK that it would be WISER to DEFEND our selves FROM governments rather than SUPORT and DEFEND them, it is COUNTER PRODUCTIVE to traid FREEDOM for SLAVERY but some how at so many levels WE ALL do IT to some extent.
That is somthing I ponder on frequently and a CONUNDRUM that I will likely never solve.
