NZ should at least donate 10000 free randomly-chosen "tourism tickets" to Marines!!! It's really the only thing they have to offer.

I saw the PM of NZ on the Travel Channel showing around the fat dude who ran the show.. it was cool. He kept saying the "Prime Minister" this, the "Prime Minister" that... and I had no idea what he was talking about, until I figured out it was a show about NZ.

Tourism!!! How dare you!!! We have many sheep to offer the marines for throat-cutting practice!!  :rotfl:

But my point was that countries like NZ that are apparently upholding the decision of a consensus body and really just using it as an excuse to cop of the discussion of the real issue of Saddam and nuclear weapons in the hands of third world dictators.


I only offered this as an example of a bribe... But Saddam doesn't have nuclear weapons and you know it. Time and time again the US have shown dodgy and even downright slanderous evidence that Saddam has anything more that panadol (Americans: read something with paracetomol 500mG in a pack of 20 etc) to fire at anyone. Quite frankly, the evidence is not there and the US have committed the greatest war crime of all by invading a foreign nation (look at my earlier post).

How about I start another discussion here:

How long is this war going to last?

Methinks 2 - 6 months
However, even when Saddam falls his troops are going to think it's just American propoganda so we will probably see cells of resistance (and terrorists) popping up many months or even years after the war has "ended".

Apparently I don't. And that's really where the debate on the justification of the war lies.

I believe that whether Saddam was wmds or not, he wants them... so it's act now or act later, I guess.

If Saddam had nukes Washington or LA would not exist, c'mon. We all know this war has a secondary undertone - oil. Who are GB's backers? The second topic we should be discussing is not how long the war will last, but what will GB do with the oil? Is he investing in hydrogen powered cars as much as he should, or even if he is, is he going about it the right way? He could be a great president if he gave the world hydrogen power, but he is as power hungry as any of his predecessors, so this isn't going to change...

But now you'll get Germany, France etc in that list. Here is another example of US bribery: Australia, our big neighbour to the west, is commiting troups to the gulf, and in return they are in negotiation with the US for a free trade agreement, while because NZ refuses to commit anything to the gulf without UN approval we are getting the big boot.


Heh. France supplies Iraq of its Al-Samoud Missiles and Germany makes Saddams bunkers. What would you expect.?


This is NOT WAR but a liberation.  Of course USA has some goodies to get after they Kick Saddam but I'd rather take the US and UK as the bullies than any other else out there.

This war is not legal though - that is the whole point. GB is only doing this for the good points - like the oil and the obvious fact that he thinks we are all so dumb that if he wins we will all celebrate with him.

Ok, we've KOed and KOed this topic. Ignorance keeps rearing its ugly head in this topic and I'd rather not let it keep doing so. Anyway the topic is gray(kinda like the colour scheme here) so there is no right or wrong. If you really feel strongly one way or another the do something about it, don't just talk about here.. remember we still programming in QB so most of us are stuck in the 80s. Topic closed.
