    Airline bans Bibles to avoid offending Muslims

    C2C, I boycott them since quite a time. My car is sleeping in a garage and comes out every so often. All the Saudi regime has is oil and sand. Limit your oil consumption, and you will boycott them efficiently. It's good for your country, for the freedom in the world, for your health, for your...

    Airline bans Bibles to avoid offending Muslims

    Right, not a lot to do with the tile of the thread.. as long as the title of the thread isn't right :-) Boycott doesn't mean UN sanctions forbidding meds and life-supporting equipments. But yeah. You get blamed for everything, huh? Y

    No need to start another war to stop nuclear Iran

    I could agree with you IF the US didn't systematically support ONLY the "democrats" that will give them a competitive and financial advantage. Not that I don't understand the realpolitik that underlines this. But a lot of people, basically for that reason, will never trust anything that is...

    Airline bans Bibles to avoid offending Muslims

    The real PC is to treat and trade with a regime like the Saudi regime, the Chinese regime, the Burmese regime, etc.. Y

    Airline bans Bibles to avoid offending Muslims

    I agree with you in some ways. First of all, this is the original article. Secondly, this passage was not reproduced in the first post: Yes, they are visibly reacting to a situation that could have been very dangerous for one of their staff. But not allowing staff to opt out is also a...

    Nuclear Winter Myth or No?

    Well, it seems to be a question of scale. There were natural catastrophes that produced (or are thought to have produced) a nuclear winter (volcano explosions, meteorites, etc..). As for the effects, the end of the dinosaurs seem to be related with nuclear winter. It's a theory, but it is widely...

    I apologize

    Not one person has to apologise for what his govt does. We all know that most americans are just normal people, interested in their pursuit of happiness as all of us are. A lot of people have a right to complain about US policies. A lot of people have a right to complain about the UK or French...

    European Union and Spongers

    Mickey, the main goal of the EU was to avoid wars. It's not a political construction (happily or not, you decide). It's not a social construction. It's a peace construction. It's not about being the "best economy in the world", as some try to make us believe. It's not being "the most social...

    Iraq: Doomed to failure!! Oh... wait...

    And with excellent reasons, if you want the opinion of a non-USer. Y

    Iraq: Doomed to failure!! Oh... wait...

    Hmmmm. Is your example also valid for the FARC? Didn't think so.. Y

    Iraq: Doomed to failure!! Oh... wait...

    Two things here. 1/ Bush started this war. It has no visible end (and don't talk 'bout "elections". The day I will accept that elections in a country occupied by a foreign army will be free and fair is NOT today). Noone can see how to get out. If you break it, you own it. 2/ Dean is as much an...

    Should there be an American bias to the news?

    I agree with you in the fact that your constitution (which is the cornerstone of freedom) allows you more freedom than here. Let's not forget that Belgium (and most european countries) is a constitutional monarchy, which means that the monarchy was toned down, not that the will of the people was...

    Should there be an American bias to the news?

    Well, I'm not in the US, but let me tell you a short story. It happens in Belgium, where the press is supposed to be less implicated in big media ... because we're a small country :lol: I was a pro photographer, and still cover demos. I publish the pics on the local Indymedias, and have of...

    Paris Riots

    Well, this is where we disagree.. Of course, most of the rioters are muslims. But first of all, they are poor French youngsters with a North-African face and name. That's what's preventing them to get a life (I didn't say a job, mind me. They can't have jobs either, but that's not what these...

    Paris Riots

    You're totally right by saying the problem won't go away.. but it's not the problem you think of (surprise? :lol: ) The problem is that, since at least 15 years, there are episodic riots in the cités. Every politician at the time promised, promised and promised more. Those cités in France are...
