It's no joke, this is one of my deadly serious threads
How many average Iraqis do you claim to speak on behalf of? Cos I've met more than a few in my time and certainly none of them agree with your statements
i'm referring to the millions of Iraqis who were celebrating in Iraq on 9/11/2001 (who would agree with my statements) and not the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis who are happily living in America and Europe, and who would not be interested in the least in returning to their homeland thank yuo very much
which frankly border on the racist, rarely have I seen such rampant generalisations - how much tabloid journalism do you consume in one day?
ahh, the old trick of mentioning the racist word in the hope that it will discredit or make the offending party STFU, sorry that tactic doesn't work with the Car Key Boi. And i don't read any tabloids, but i do read a shitload of confidential reports from a lot of Oil Bois and other professionals lawyers/accountants/economists/blah) that's how come i'm always so well informed
And regardless of what the Iraqis think of us or not, millions would still have been on the streets yesterday, because the wider picture here is not just not about whats about to happen in the middle-east, its the fact that no satisfactory evidence has been presented as grounds for a war that no-one wants, with the exception of your 'president' and his cronies. Doesnt that ring alarm bells for you?
well, FYI 76% of the American public are in favor of military action in Iraq, although it's not something we WANT, it's just something we feel is justified for one reason or another. So it doesn't ring alarm bells at all. Besides, most of the American protesters are only protesting because it happens to be a Republican president who's sitting in the Oral Office, and most of the Eurotard protesters are protesting because they don't like the fact that America is the School Yard Bully of the World. They want to be the bully, or at least a joint bully. That's why the strongest opposition is coming from Germany, France and Bellgim i.e. the three nations who are pushing the hardest for the United States of Europe to become a reality
I hope i've misinterpreted, but I find your attitude of 'lets bomb them cos they dont give a toss about us' pretty disturbing.
yuo have misinterpreted, i'm not in favor of sending in Air Force and Army Boi because i want an eye for an eye, or revenge for 9/11 or because yuor average Iraqi is an all-American hating fanatic
to tell the troof, i don't care about 9/11 anymore, that's history and what's done is done. Sure it would be great if we could nail someone big to account for that, but i wouldn't spend billions of $$$ raining our missiles and bombs on Iraq for that purpose.
But i do think nailing Saddam would be a good thing for the average Iraqi (after a year or 2) but more importantly, the West's oil consumption is increasing every day and the World's resources are being depleted accordingly
at the moment the situation isn't too bad, but in say 5 or 10 years, the situation is going to be worse, and one day (and this will happen in everyone's lifetime) there isn't gonna be a lot of oil that is cost effective to drill for, and when that day comes, we're gonna be FUCKED (unless we can wean ourselves onto Nuclear Power, and that's another thing that the very same peacetards will be protesting against)
so i say invade Iraq and let's get our hands on that oil that is soooo easy and cheap to drill for. All yuo have to do is poke the ground with a stick. FYI, the Shell oil company have already made preparations for this. That's sure gonna fuck the French up the ass (another reason why the French object so strongly to invasion)
and finally, it's not the attitude of some accountant tard that yuo find disturbing, it's those millions of Iraqis who hate yuor guts even though yuo're protesting in the cold on their behalf, it's that which yuo find so disturbing. Sorry, it's not my fault that happens to be a FACT, so don't blame the messenger
