LOS ANGELES - Sheryl Crow, an activist for recording artists' rights, brought her own message against a possible war with Iraq to Monday night's American Music Awards.

Crow accepted her award for pop-rock female artist wearing a white T-shirt emblazoned with the message "war is not the answer" in black sequins. She had the V-neck shirt specially made.

"I just think there's a really vital, sweeping peace movement out there that's not getting covered in the press, so I just kind of try to do my part," she said backstage.

"I think war is based in greed and there are huge karmic retributions that will follow. I think war is never the answer to solving any problems. The best way to solve problems is to not have enemies."
---
Huge karmic retributions...wow, I mean at least anti-war advocates on a.net can come up with better arguements than that.

"The best way to solve problems is to not have enemies."--Gee Sheryl, how profound.... do you actually believe that is possible? not having any enemies?

"I just think there's a really vital, sweeping peace movement out there that's not getting covered in the press, so I just kind of try to do my part,"--I just think you are total moron, and I'm just trying to do my part.

Sheryl, why dont you go back to your fantasy liberal world, where every one gets along and there are no enemies. Karmic retributions...my God, I feel dumber just by reading that article. Why doesnt Sheryl focus more on eating one meal a day rather than making these statements that she has absolutely no business making?

Ms Crow is so profound ! (like "All I want to do is ahve some fun" wearing the ugliest brown leather pants ever and of course her real street credibility by being Michael Jackson's back up singer)

Being famous and having artistic talent qualifies you to comment authoritatively on public policy in the United States, didn't you know that?

The funniest thing is when Martin Sheen decides to speak out against Bush and outlines what he would do instead. Dude doesnt realize that he only plays a president on TV, not real life. Hell, Martin Sheen couldnt even raise his son properly, and he thinks he could do a better job running the country...

Well Ms. Crow, if "War is not the answer", then in your infinite wisdom, what is the answer? What, you have no real answer for that? Thanks, stick to writing songs about car washes and sunshine, and leave the real issues to those that actually have to deal with them. Thanks for wasting everyone's time.

Then again she's a hippie what do you expect. The real travesty is that anyone thinks this story is worthy if being published and distributed.

Had this been, say, Charlton Heston, making a foreign policy statement, I'd imagine, Jcs, you'd tell us how profound the guy is, simply because he kisses right-wing rear ends.

Who cares what these people-on either side of the debate-say? They're out for publicity, nothing more. Don't give it to them, for crying out loud!

Although, I'm sure Indianguy will tell all of us asshole Americans that we should listen to Cheryl, just like we should listen to that "great" American, Sean Penn.  Big grin

The only thing is, Charlton Heston, wouldnt make a public statement on foreign policy, he knows that he would be way out of his league by doing so. And thus leaving himself open to vicious attacks by a.net users. But, of course, this is Sheryl Crow who somehow believes that karmic retribution applies in matters of foreign policy.

So why is it that when that conservative entertainer, Rush Limbaugh, speaks on US foreign policy, you guys don't criticize him the same way? He has as much foreign policy knowledge as your average Hollywood celebrity...

No? Are you 200% sure about that? Think back to when Charlton Heston got onto a tirade about gun laws in Australia; using incorrect stats and facts, twisting what few facts he did have into total fallacies.

Being famous and having artistic talent qualifies you to comment authoritatively on public policy in the United States, didn't you know that?

Yeah but here on airliners.net you don't need to be famous, you don't need to have artistic talent, and hell, you don't even need pubes to be able to comment authoritatively on public policy in the United States. With apologies to Alpha 1 as I know he doesn't like discussing pubes and the pubic region  Laugh out loud

How does discussing gun laws constitute discussing foreign policy? They are two totally separate issues....Geez, that comparison really sucked, please try again.

Yeah but here on airliners.net you don't need to be famous, you don't need to have artistic talent, and hell, you don't even need pubes to be able to comment authoritatively on public policy in the United States.

Oh yeah, because everyone knows GW Bush is an idiot.  Yeah sure

Thats the smartest thing you have said all day.

Well...gun laws is a policy and Australia is foreign...sooooo.....that equates to.....what?

But still...Heston still made comments on things political and he screwed up. And he, and the conservative media, still deny that.

Sheryl Crow is fully entitled to have an opinion on the Iraq issue, and to share it with whomsoever she feels like sharing it with....if you don't agree, that's fine, but that doesn't put her in the wrong.

As to whether her opinion is 'authoratitive', surely that is up to the individual to decide? Evidently, you have all taken offence on the premise that her opinion is one of authority!

Capt.Picard, I completely agree! Every free citizen is allowed his or her opinion, and is allowed to share that opinion with whomever's willing to listen. If her opinion displeases you, change the channel or switch off the television. She's not forcing anyone to listen, and she has as much right to an opinion as you or I or anyone else for that matter.

From above Smile
Quite frankly she can say what the hell she likes.Whether you agree with it at all is another matter.?

Except for other radical left wing nut cases, most people don't give a flying flip.-Sheryl Crow is a 'radical left wing nut case'?That must make about 50% of your fellow citizens fall into the same class then.

I'm no fan of Limbaugh, but I gotta admit that he at least reads and learns as much as he can about an issue before twisting and distorting it.

As I said before, I respect many of your anti-war opinions, although I strongly disagree with them. However, the reasons for not going to war that Ms. Crow outlined were absurd and I notice that you anti-war advocates, never had the balls to stick up for her reasons.

Why should we stick up for her opinion? It is her opinion.

But....

I think war is based in greed and there are huge karmic retributions that will follow. I think war is never the answer to solving any problems.

War, in this day and age, is more often than not based on greed.

Her opinion is that karmic retributions will follow. I too believe in karma; i.e. what goes around comes around.

War isn't the answer to solving problems. It more often than not, creates more problems than it solves.
