Calling all intelectually honest people

Where were these people when genocide was being committed in Yugoslavia, Iraq, Columbia and Darfur?

International Peace Day really means Loathe America Day.

If only we had a benevolent leader like Ahmadinejad or Kim Jong-il.

some of them weren't alive,

some of them weren't alive, that's where.

By your logic, I guess starting wars proves you love America?

And actually we do have a leader almost as smart as Ahmadinejad and nearly as caring as Kim Jong-il. So lucky us! It's working out great.

I have to agree with Sober

I have to agree with Sober Blogger. Peace is not free and when we put our necks out there to help people who can't fight for themselves we get blamed for being war hungry. I am sick of people in our own country who want to see us fail. Everyone wants peace, unfortunately we have enemies who want to kill us and we must kill them first- that's the reality

nobody wants to see us fail.

nobody wants to see us fail. some people just want to admit that a lost cause is a lost cause, and it doesn't get more noble just by sacrificing even more lives. We cannot run the world by "killing our enemies before they kill us," for God's sake. Even if that were a logical premise, all it could do is create even more kill, I guess?

Can't think of a suitable title...

Names, bloggers? why not?

Yo Doug - what's your take

Yo Doug - what's your take on this subject? You don't have to answer if you don't want to.

Some people comment annoymously because it's a sensitive subject. I realize things can get nasty that way, but to be branded one way or the other on a particular subject like this, in THIS town - well, the term suicide comes to mind . . .

There are some very brave people that are willing to speak out and be identified for these causes. I really do admire their guts. While part of me would like to let everyone know where I stand on this subject, in the end, I just don't think it's in my best interest. That doesn't mean I don't have an opinion. I just don't want to be known as being on one side or the other - I want to keep it private. An anonymous post is a good outlet to express one's view without letting everyone know who you are - gutless, I know, but I have my reasons. By the way, I'm a new poster - not one of the previous ones above.

I just hope that those who comment anonymously don't get too carried away. With that said -

"War is not the answer!"

Try explaining that to a Holocost survivor, or their children.

"This war is different."

Is it?

Yo Doug - what's your take

I meant Dean (sorry) . . .
