Well, I'l start a discussion off here with a little bump.
It was not long ago that there was several announcements that Iraq could not create of get the materials for nuclear bombs. Then Bush got involved. A country that had never done anything against the civilians of the USA or been a threat to the world. America started bombing. Hundreds of helpless Iraqi civilians died for no apparent reason. Bush continued attacking Iraq and kept on saying 'Bombs are there' 'They are there somewhere' 'He has weapons of mass destruction'. After all these years what have they found there? No weapons of mass destruction. Yes crimes against humanity may of happened there but also America took control of some of the oil there, people who helped fund Bush got involved with the Iraq oil industry.
Now I am not against America or saying what happened in Iraq before America attacked was right. I just thought that what I said in the previous paragraph would be an interesting talking point.
Also I would like to mention that it is not the people who we look up to who are fighting, it is those who are normally unprivileged, living in bad areas and sometimes very poor. The people that some people may look down on are often the ones who are fighting to save our lives. Also is it only one member of the senate who has a child fighting in foreign lands?
Some of the things I have said express my views and some are not my views, please do not flame.
Also McAuslan, rep for the thread, it should be a good and interesting thing to debate and discuss.
