    I don't like it whatsoever that oil dependency controls our military policy, especially knowing we have other options. Drive Electric: Military - YouTube

    That's not the say I think President Bush was not fully convinced Saddam Hussein was on the path of having WMDs that he would use directly or indirectly against the American people and led the nation to war with Iraq over nothing greater than his concern for us. What I'm saying is the complex circumstances that led to the war were created by the monopoly petroleum had and still has over the American people and our ability in engage in commerce. The quicker we have other viable transportation energy options, the better for a peaceful world and I think over the mid term, a more robust US economy.

    There's no such thing. If you will not march with me, I have to assume you're marching against me and treat you as a potential threat.

    How about I just walk away from you and leave you alone to do your own thing?

    That's fine. Just realize that if you reach into your pocket as you're walking away you're likely gonna get shot in the back because I don't know what it is you're reaching into that pocket for.

    Thats just paranoia. Im British, the British would NEVER attack modern America as it is the "Special Relationship" If anything America is walking away from Britain at the moment over the Falklands, Tony Blair lied to the populace to follow Bush into Iraq and Afghanistan thats dedication.

    Then, along with Bush and the conservatives, I'd say "yes".
    Now, NO
    We should learn to think before leaping ; see prior to jumping , which seems so easy, yet is not.
    emotions were involved.
    Have we learned anything from this....from this place, I'd say NO.

    It's not paranoia when everyone IS out to get you. The whole "Special Relationship" thing is garbage so far as I'm concerned. Then again I'm an Isolationist at heart.

    This depends on one's mental health and how this affects one's outlook...
    So, its OK, T....your "philosophy" , and I hope that you are smart enough NOT to posses a gun....as I am...
    After all, bullets have no effect on ghosts.

    Two types, Tig ?
    How about the 90% who simply do not care about us, do not even know us (99.9%).
    I buy not, neither friend nor enemy....thats for the developing children...adults learn the truth over time.
