    Moral Absolutes? or is it all Relative?

    I lean towards the feeling that everything is relative. These days even the most devote christian from the bible belt will say "Hell" or "Damn" when angry or after an accident but 300 years ago in the worlds primative navys this could be punished with a red hot poker through the tongue or a...

    Saddam's henchmen to go on trial...

    Iraq is a country made up of a lot of different tribes on Arabs who all traditionally hate each other. (This makes sense if you think how barren the lands of Iraq are and how its indigionous people would have had to battle for resources over the centuries) Terrorism will be the least of the...

    Michael Moore

    America may be a way of life but it is one to be proud of? America consumes more than half of the worlds resources every year for the soul aim of capitalism, the gaining of more money. I don't want to sound like I am some looney radical here as that is not the case but to be of a country that...

    Gun Control

    Me and Michael Moore don't see eye to eye on a great deal but here is a prime example of where me and him do. The American conciousness is in a great number of cases that there is some unseen enemy always out to get you and that guns are an essential part of defending that freedom. "Life...

    The war against terror is the key..

    I too saw the people tearing down statues of Saddam but if I were a loyal Saddam supporter I would not have been out there trying to stop them with the American army hanging about. OK that is a frivolous answer I did see that crowd but I have also seen news footage of a huge crowd lining the...

    Michael Moore

    This is not even slightly offensive. America is just a country and the sooner overly patriotic people start to realise that burning a flag, poking some fun or even highlighting faults isn't harmful the better the US will become.

    Another US Soldier Charged

    My bad, anyway back to the point. Mine was that despite the US having a genuine freedom of press all of the media channels that news comes down are controlled by large companies that have agendas and so freedom of press does not ensure relevant, unbiased commentary. Also that in my own...

    The war against terror is the key..

    All good points and eloquently put but the whole argument revolves around the notion of "good" which is an entirely subjective concept. Just because a person, people, nation or president think that one think is good does not mean that it is necessarily so on the other side of the world...

    What was your favorite slogan used by one side against another this election

    Mine was "Bush and Chainey, why change horsemen mid-apocalypse" Made me chuck I must admit. The Bush ones were not as snappy.

    UK elections

    Blairs op is Michael Howard. Blair will get a third term but with a greatly reduced majority in the commons. This is because a large section of the Uk was against the war in Iraq, the fact that his government have screwed students over since they have been in office and also people are...

    Another US Soldier Charged

    I don't know for sure but I was told that if you have no ariel going in to your house for TV and no ariels in the house then a TV can be counted as a monitor. The BBC as well as being a news network also is an entertainment network so if you dont watch the news you will watch the other...

    The war against terror is the key..

    It is nice that people are not resorting to name calling on here, I like that as I feel I am in discussion with rational human beings unlike 98% of the internet. I cannot however agree. It doesn't matter how many of the presidents before Bush Jr actually plotted to remove Saddam or how many...

    Another US Soldier Charged

    I do not doubt that CNN has as much bias or coercion in its broadcasts than Fox (apart from maybe the election scandal considering the personnel on the news desk) and I agree with your point 100% but if you were to ask me how much I would pay for a news service I would point out to you that the...

    The war against terror is the key..

    I am sure that that was a most salient response but as it defined me as a "turd bomber" at the start I too didn't bother doing anything more than skim it. It appears most apparent to this fellow that I am foreign! Is this because I did not at any point in my passage mention my love for moms...

    Another US Soldier Charged

    Isn't responsability of the press an oxymoron? The press always report what is in the best interests of the company that owns that media avenue. Look at the mess that the American elections got in to the time before last with Fox claiming man they wanted to win had won when other networks...

    The war against terror is the key..

    to stripping away more and more of the western world's civil rights. The boarders to the US, a country built on immigration, are now controlled tighter than ever before. There are draconian measures to make the people of the UK, a country that suffered terrorist attacks most weeks for the...
