    IAEA says North Korea has shut reactor

    Yes, let's hope this is just one example of many future policy shifts (and associated benefits) to come from this administration. http://www.cnn.com/2007/WORLD/asiapcf/02/13/nkorea.talks/index.html

    House OKs plan to withdraw US troops

    I don't see many parallels between this war and WWII. Here are some key differences: 1) there was never a real coalition in this war 2) Iraq was contained 3) this war was off target from the global threat of terrorism 4) many people predicted that this war would divide the allies of the US and...

    EU and Iran to hold nuclear talks

    Iran was "swimming on a sea of oil" when the US seeded the nuclear programme under the US installed dictator in the 1950s. Why did they need it then? Nuclear technology is a scientific advancement that the overwhelming majority of Iranians want to their government to pursue. There are much...

    America's Christian conservatives are not much different than Islamist fundamentalism

    Re: America's Christian conservatives are not much different than Islamist fundamenta Parsing the language that I wrote doesn't indicate that I am hinging the non-validity of the "few and fair between" on the citing of one single person. I think you know what I meant. Christian extremist...

    Paper: Israel Plans Nuclear Strike On Iran

    Again, if they don't need nuclear power, why did the US seed the program in the first place? Well maybe we shouldn't have created the situation to spark the revolution then eh? Who could have thought that people might rebel against a dictator that had US support? How dare they!

    Paper: Israel Plans Nuclear Strike On Iran

    SAME DAMN REASONS THEY NEEDED IT WHEN THE US SEEDED THE PROGRAM 50 YEARS AGO! Did the oil just show up recently? The only thing that has changed since then was before it was a US blessed dictator and now it is a US government (not people) hating democracy under Islamic based law. Not every...

    America's Christian conservatives are not much different than Islamist fundamentalism

    Re: America's Christian conservatives are not much different than Islamist fundamenta "America's Christian fundamentalist are far and few"? I think Jerry Falwell would disagree. Jerry's quest for the apocalypse and inability to respect other beliefs puts him in the same class as Islamic...

    Paper: Israel Plans Nuclear Strike On Iran

    Iran will not give up a fuel cycle. It is the US and Israel that will have to come to terms with Iran continuing the nuclear program that the US started way back when. Isn't it ironic that the country that helped start the program is now the one that is _trying_ to stop it? All the US and...

    Saddam Hussein Has Been Executed, According to a Senior American Official in Baghdad

    Re: Saddam Hussein Has Been Executed, According to a Senior American Official in Bagh I see you are new to DP - welcome. However, when you get a little more experience reading Navy's posts, you should probably think that was about as much of a joke as John Kerry's joke about getting stuck...

    Saddam Hussein Has Been Executed, According to a Senior American Official in Baghdad

    Re: Saddam Hussein Has Been Executed, According to a Senior American Official in Bagh You are a real piece of work! Comparing Barak to Saddam because of a name is unbelievable and pathetic.

    Re: America's Christian conservatives are not much different than Islamist fundamenta They are different in a few ways, but the major material similarities include: 1) they both do not accept differing opinions of believes in a pluralistic fashion 2) they both drive world events towards the...

    ‘We Can’t Afford to Leave’

    Just checking in on this site to see how the righties are taking their medicine. Nice to know the ditto heads can still stick to their predictable lines. This war was lost when it started. The "cut and run leftists" aren't the ones cutting and running; they are ending the fool's errand Bush...

    McCaskill declares victory

    Praise the Lord! There is still hope for this little blue planet, and it looks like the temporary insantity that has kept the far right in power is finally starting to fade! Today is a good day - now let's start to work out of the pile of **** Bush has dug the world into!

    Vatican stops short of apology as muslem leaders decry comments.

    LMAO? Try to do better here? I don't need to waste my time with someone who can't show a little respect for someone they are engagued in debate with; it doesn't do anything for me. Please don't flatter yourself thinking that I am running - but then again think what you want cause I don't...

    Vatican stops short of apology as muslem leaders decry comments.

    The Pope and Bush are leaders, who I hope you hold them to a higher standard than Al Qaeda. If Farakhan was sawing off heads, then you might have a point - but you don't.

    Muslims rage against the Pope!

    Despite what Raytheon and Boeing want DoD everyone to believe, it takes more than technology to acheive security. The US already has the means to surgically strike targets: special forces. But that would create casualities. So instead, the US uses technology that saves Americans while...

    Vatican stops short of apology as muslem leaders decry comments.

    If you want to hold the Pope's comments to the same standards as we hold the media or politcians - then fine. But it demotes the Pope from a spiritual leader to just another in the group of talking heads. That is sad, speaking as a Catholic.

    Vatican stops short of apology as muslem leaders decry comments.

    I agree with his stated goals, I just can't see how his plan is ever going to reach its goal. I believe you can't kill your way to peace (other than genocide). Again, I agree there has to be greater condemnation with the Arab states - but Bush/Israeli policy has created an environment (with...

    Vatican stops short of apology as muslem leaders decry comments.

    So the Muslims are responible for the fact that Western media doesn't find it news worthy that Islam proper doesn't approve of extremists? Please. It is the responsibilty of individuals to come to their own conclusion. If they want to take the prepacked soundbites mixed in with idealogy...
