What's everyone so scared about? I don't think Iraq has a chance in hell of winning this war.

But that's just my opinion.  :tongue:

i dont know its just sad... and dreams ive had. I really dont know whats going to happen, but ive had lots of anxiety lately. and i dont really ever remember being so worried about this shit. i cant tell the cause... but who knows well see how serious this is within the next week or two. who knows if there are plans for special agents or terrorists bringing bio weapons in... i dont know.. i really dont. Im not TOO worried about it, ive come to accept a lot of those unknown possibilities lately, damn anxiety.

"What's everyone so scared about? I don't think Iraq has a chance in hell of winning this war. "

North Korea was mentioned in the "axis of evil" speech. So they're afraid of getting blown up. They announced that an attack on Iraq would be taken as a sign that North Korea was next, so they would then launch a pre-emtive strike against the US. They have nukes, remember?

This is getting into the political territory but at the same time damn worth having here....

It's much more complicated than that and I know your intelligent enough to realize it so I will forego the explanations unless you really want them......

War today does not work, even if the uk and america does blow up iraq whats to stop him sending suicide bomers ect to release chemicals and viruses in our countrys. There will be no way to stop it. So it could be time to run to the hills.

Because the Iraqi people don't care enough about Saddam to blow themselves up for him. Your getting things confused. Iraqis probably don't equate killing themselves in for Saddam to equal killing themselves for God/Ala. Suicide bombers come from people who think that by killing themselves in the name of God/Ala that they will have eternal rewards.

What may happen is that the US further isolates those who already feel disenfranchised and push them further into hopelessness, where they may eventually wind up thinking a quick death by taking out a few Americans or whoever and going to heaven is way better than thrashing it out in the slums of a city in the desert.....

I have been in the hills for years, but it doesn't matter, the hand of the blue meanies is everywhere these days.....

Murex, Iraq is just the beginning........ this is NOT going to be a fun show from the inside, IMO.

try some real news perhaps. Have you ever looked up democracy now!? It is a great program. I think the only way of balancing the pure propoganda and fear mongering of the mass media is to look at people worldwide that are standing together as humans and not as members of this or that country.
The news that democracy now! has is very inspiring.
I have heard a lot of people talking about how afraid they are. I think this is a lot bigger than Iraq for sure. What they are planning on doing is disgusting, particularly if you view human life as something more than an abstraction. Evil is an abstraction, life isn't.
By the way, has the mass media mentioned anything about the US bugging UN talks or making up evidence against Iraq?

Whats happening is we were secured mainly by the oceans and the arctic, and by alot of mexicans.. :wink: Now what we have is a global war, (hence the Anthrax scare). Dont you think its little odd the infection was started then it all stopped with no arrests.  All after 9-1-01.  Could it have been a major scare tactic used, to throw us all into a mind set of "look how easy it is to attack us.  Planes, and Bacteria, and whatever else".  So now what we do is go looking for the problem when its small, and not 100,000 americans dead from anthrax or other types of similar terror, Dont even talk about nuclear .......1 BOMB, a butt load dead , beyond 10's of thousands more like hundreds , possibly millions.  And for what? we didnt want to step on other  peoples toes or meddle in there neighborhood.  Tony Soprano didnt like people from other "Families" meddling into his turf, so of course neither would anyone else... :confused:  War sucks and so does the news, remember "The Winners of the War always right the history books"  And while I am giving out opinions, Saddam should have been hunted down the first time and captured  especially after it came to light of what they did to the oil fields, burning them and letting oil in the ocean or gulf there, horrific calamity that caused more than we hear about.  grrrrrr...

So we all are becoming a global society, and must start thinking as one, Culture is great and should be maintained, but not at the expense of all that we have to lose by not being more like a "FAMILY" and sharing all the benefits.  I LOVE THE USA, but one day I hope for the good , that our country will live under a secondary charter to a one world charter, all will come to find out that its in everyones intrest for it.  For that to come to pass we would need a few more technological advances, for instance all u trekkie fans, a Protein resequencer or anything of the sort.  And a one BIG attitude adjustment ( instructions not included).

So guess it comes down to "Evil will only prevail when good people do nothing"


WHEN ASKED IF THE GLASS IS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL REPLY..."IT IS NEITHER IT NEEDS REFILLED"
