Of course its not about oil...
    #1323733 - 02/21/03 04:43 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Its about WMD and Human Rights - isnt it?

Human rights in the middle east

Weapons of mass destrucition

So why is Iraq being singled out then, if of course it has nothing to do with oil.....

Don't worry. Soon enough Bush'll find an excuse to invade Iran. But Saudi Arabia will never be invaded as long as they sell us cheap oil.

I dunno..my moneys on Iran for the next military invasion. I think they will just try and screw the Saudi's economically with the extra clout all that good Iraqi oil will give them.

If Bush gets a second term, then by the end of his presidency, we probably will have invaded every one of his "axis of evil" countries, as well as a few more countries that get in our way. That is, if America still exists by that point.

I always laugh when I see a post from someone in the UK about human rights violations.

I'm well aware of the US links. It was just an observation that many here are quick to point out violations by the US but seem to have a brain fart when it comes to their countries..

That's ok though luv because your ALWAYS there to back up the good ol USA. You have issues with people bashing America and I can totally respect that. I would get upset if Australia was completely fucked up (not that it isn't in many ways) and people kept rubbing it in (with statements that are sometimes true, sometimes false.)

I dont see your point im afraid. But then im not caught up in the nationalistic trip. What you have said is basically irrelevant. No change there then.

The point, and I'll say this slowly since it appears to be necessary, i s t h i s... a l l y o u A m e r i c a h a t e r s a r e j u s t t o o t r a n s p a r e n t.

At least try to hide your feelings by bashing some of the violations by your own countries. America has done more good for the world than any other country, even those we disagree with. Have we always done the right thing all the time? Nope. By the scale is still heavily tilted toward the positive.

Clean your own houses before worrying about ours.

Your error lies in believing I am only an American basher. Wrong, I am equally opposed to the actions of my own governments role in this whole affair. It just so happens that your country leads the way. Something im sure you are proud of.

Now do you think you could answer the original question I asked?

You're as poor as Alpo at reading peoples minds so don't give up your day job.

Only? No. Primarily? Without a doubt. I suspect you have little good to say about anything. It appears to be common in those who post here from the UK and Canada.


Quote:

If by that you mean the WMD and Human rights question, those are (I believe) two of the primary reasons. And we've talked about this before. You're being redundant.

Like I said, work on cleaning your own house before worrying about ours. Although I suspect if it wasn't for US bashing you'd have little reason to go on.

Try reading the question slowly and then answering. Why have Iraq been singled out is the crux of the question. Is it that hard to understand?

If you try being less clever for a moment and go back and read your first post in this thread you'll see only one (1) question mark.

Here, since apparently even that ability escapes you I'll paste it here.
----------------------------------------------
Its about WMD and Human Rights - isnt it?

Human rights in the middle east

Weapons of mass destrucition

So why is Iraq being singled out then, if of course it has nothing to do with oil.....
---------------------------------------------

If you had wanted an answer to the last line in the post you could simply have put a question mark at the end.

Now since you're apparently too simple-minded to use punctuation correctly (that's these symbols here !.?', and a few more) I'll answer anyway.

Saddam asked for it. Practically begged.

by yhe way, if you cant see that I mistakenly left a ? out of my post and thats the only way you can score points it just goes to show you are really struggling for something intelligent to say. I was stoned at the time, I forgot a ? - Im soooo sorry. Of course there has never been any grammatical errors in one of your posts. Grow up.

If you had merely left out a question mark I might even agree, but you put 5 periods there. How does someone mistakenly forget a question mark and mistakenly hit the period 5 times?

Mistake? Bullshit.
