It is the nature of man to war with his neighbor. War is always bad, but not always wrong. It always can be avoided, yet at what cost?
The fact that you said the world has seen 30 years of peace simply discounts a destroys any points you make afterward. Anybody who has read any bit of history on the last 30 years know it’s been very far from peaceful.
But please, define peace for me.
And while your at it, define war.
If you really get down to it, people are involved in war. Not persons, people. Yes, people, as in all of us. Not one is rightous (read the phelps thread, the one about the self-rightous punk who thinks God hates people), that is a simple inexplicible (by us) part of human nature. Our covetnous and lusts and desires cause us to hurt each other, but no matter how long we repeat that to ourselves it doesn’t help.
France and Germany
If you “read the internet” as you claim you do you would quickly find out that those two nations, along with Russia and many others were bribed by saddam using none other than oil for food exchanges. What was that about O-I-L. And what was this about Germany being so smart…oh yes, have even forgot WW2 where Hitler duped much of Germany into believing many of his lies, now I’m not saying they’re like that now of course. However is they were as cautious as you say they are, they would’ve totally condemened and routed Hitler and his nazi party long before he came to power.
“afghanistan oil divide Britain”
With the quotes that you have around that it yields no responses.
Without quotes it’s an insanely vague search. All that does is search for those four terms (in any given order in any given document) among the google archives.
and to think, for your own self.
Oh I do, that’s why I have yet to come to you’re rather faulty view (IMHO of course).
If you don’t exercise your rights now,
Excercise what rights? My right to free speech, my right to seek out information written by that right?
I do, everyday. By disagreeing with conspiracy theorists like you, I exercise my right to freedom of ideas and thoughts.
If this somehow makes me cannon fodder in you eyes, then so be it.
