hate to break it to ya buddy! but, i think ull find that nazis hate communists and hitler respected the british, so hows about u get UR facts straight!Originally posted by Aries
hate to break it to ya buddy, but hitler only orderd the attack on russia when he did cause he failed in attacking britian. and though by what they did it doesn't look like it, the german high command actually did try to win the battle of britian, it's just they didn't work well together and general goring (sp?) was incompetant. also, their priorities kept shifting, from bombing radar sites and airfields, to cities, etc. and the V2 rocket wasn't availible until 1944 i believe. the pitiful remnants of the luftwaffe were because of the battle of britian and the subsequent russian campaign and it was at stalingrad where the germans were stopped then forced back (yes they were stopped at leningrad, aka st. petersburg, but the attack started at stalingrad was the attack that freed leningrad)
and how do you get the war on terrorism to be to boost US oil stock. last time i checked, afganistan didn't have any oil and where else have we attacked in the war on terrorism. the war against iraq is different that the war on terror, and though i disagree with those who say that war is for the oil, i can at least understand where they are comming from.
the weapons are WMDs (Weapons of Mass Destruction) MAD is the policy used during the cold war for said weapons. MAD stands for Mutual Assured Distruction.
and finally, yes you are right. Hussein and Bin Laden don't like each other, but I'm sure that to strike at the United States, they would be willing to put aside their differences for a while to cause as much damage as they can to my country. and why is money going into russia a threat. if anything, it would allow russia to stabilize it's economy and mabye pay its military to reduce the risk that some colonel would sell a nuke just to get money.
Certainly. I agree with you. But (yes, I may be taking the moral high ground again), forgive my language here, as I want to really nail this point home. No one has the fucking right to fucking kill fucking innocent fucking people. Not even the fucking U fucking S fucking of fucking A. Am I making a clear and definifive point with the ironic repetitive use of the F word? I am? Good.Originally posted by Ender
I'm just saying that we need to look at the situation not in terms of "They are evil and must be destroyed," but rather in the context of, "Well these guys are willing to die to take us out. Why? There must be reasons that this many people of varying backgrounds would have this big an ax to grind with us. Yea, we have to stop them from doing anything else to us, but at the same time, is there a way we can ensure that our actions will not make new terrorists.
In short, we need a foreign policy that takes more into consideration than the next election cycle.
Saddam's not crazy, huh. where did you get that? the guy kill's thousands of his own citizens, aggrassively tries to get WMDs, and other things that i won't list cause i don't want to spend the rest of the night writing this post. but if you don't think that is crazy, go right ahead and think that. as for iraq not being a country to start ww3, you don't need a huge army, all you need is one little nuke that can fit in a suitcase and walk into some city and "boom". that's all you need to start ww3. and that's what saddam is trying to get. but since you don't think he's crazy, well i'm sure that will make you feel a whole lot better when a iraqi built nuke goes off in D.C cause you assured us that Saddam isn't crazyOriginally posted by scheherazade
aries < iraq has a right to have any kinds of weapons it desires, on its own land. its not the US' right to tell any other nation what it can or cant do on their own land. and saddam is not crazy. people say he's crazy cause he made war. so what, if thats a reason to be crazy then a good few of our presidents were insane.
The one nuke can start WWIII stuff. Right outta Sum of All Fears. (book, I refuse to see that sellout movie) But then again, on 9/11/01 I thought we were living the last chapter of Debt of Honor.Originally posted by Phillip Tanaka
