@Eric505, DavidB, NWA742, 9V-SVE: Facts and rational statements to back up your beliefs dont really help in a debate. They only spoil the fun, and when you dont really have any Facts (or rational thoughts) to back you up, they can even work against you! So Why bother with Facts when abuse will work just fine! Shout down your opponent with abuses and profanity! Didnt the Nazi's do that with so much success?
Is that what is taught in American schools these days?
None of these characters dealt with any of the issues I actually spoke about. Ofcourse, none of that ever happened! American mercenaries were never sent into Iraq.Iraq has not been occupied illegally. Jay Garner? He's picnicking in Texas! None of this Iraq business actually happened. All that is "Left wing propaganda" right?
I said it before and I say it again: There can be no peace in this world until America accepts that other cultures have their own definitions of democracy, which can be different from theirs. America has never learned to get along with other cultures, and inherently seeks to control them. This is what pushed the World into a Cold War that brought so much suffering to so many people and only benefitted the big industrial houses that primed the American war machine.
Forcing other cultures to accept your own definitions, with force if necessary, is only going to lead to more violence. Violence has never done anyone, any good. Any good that it appears to do is only temporary, but the damage it causes is permanent and often irreparable. Ofcourse, all this should be beyond the understanding of semi-literate, public school type teenagers who come on forums like these to spew abuse at anyone who disagrees with them! NWA742 and others are living examples of the damage funding cuts can do to the system!
George W Bush and his criminal Christian plutocracy that rules Washington has used violence to subjugate a free people, and now these people are going to fight back. And they have every right to do so. I wouldnt say that car bombs are the best method to win back their freedom and self-respect, but it is one way. Ofcourse it makes the "war on terror" (and I mean the REAL war on terror, that Russia and India are dealing with) even more difficult, since Americans have come in to muddy the water!
Wow, what a coincidence...isn't that what you are cheering on when the Pakistani 'freedom fighters' act in Kashmir? Those guys crossing your border are simply freedom fighters protecting a majority Muslim land from the heathen Indians, right?
@N79969: Looks like the heat has got to you so bad that you are getting really desperate! Comparing Kashmir to the situation in Iraq is like comparing Apples and oranges! India is not on foreign soil, we are pretty much on Indian territory, fighting terrorists sent from across the borders!
But how some of these terrorists coming in from Pakistan to fight India managed to get hold of US made Stinger SAM's is something the US Administration has to answer!
The US has to answer why it is supporting terrorism in some parts of the world, like Kashmir and Chechnya while condemning it when it hurts you! This kind of double standards wont eradicate terror, only serve to increase it.
To sum up, America is now going to learn what we Indians learnt a long time ago: That violence only leads to more violence. Those criminals leading your country sent in mercenaries to subjugate a free people, and they are now fighting back. America will have to pay for the foolish actions of its leaders. That is not in doubt. The only thing to be known now is what the price will be.
