The revolving doors between the personnel from the corporations and politics needs to be recognized and stopped imo
No, but it serves as a useful pretext, time and again, to extend Western and others big business interests as well as consolidating the rising global influence of the marketCan this war be won?
That largely depends on who you think the governments works for imo. Do they work for the people who elect them , or do they work for the people that bankroll their election campaigns ? For me it's the latterAre the governments of the West doing the right things or are they making the situation worse?
Nor the peoples of other nations. I think it high time people here realized that the " we are the 99% " applies on a global scaleAs for me, I dont want to see another American solider or civilian killed in a pointless war with no end.
I agree but the special interest groups ,AKA the corporations/national ruling elites ,are the ones pulling the strings. Not just in the West either imhoThe West needs to stop minding the business of other countries.
I agree that people in other countries should just be allowed to run things how they like for themselves. Not just in religious terms but also in political and ideological terms too. Unfortunately , due to the reasons mentioned above , I can't see that happening even in the distant future , provided humanity even has one.No more overseas military bases or occupation- if these Islamists want to live according to their religion then I say let them do it. These very governments like Saudi Arabia, who we are fighting with to maintain their status quo over there are the very people who bankroll these terrorists. The US has got the largest shale oil deposits in the world- more than the entire middle east combined, why not spend billions in developing these fields and get oil form then instead of letting the Arabs do it and paying them for it?
What is encouraging though , is that there appears to be some rays of hope that enough people are starting to question their own doctrinal systems , as the result in the poll here goes some way to highlighting.
Progress is slow , painfully slow and open to revisions , but there is a general trend that indicates its existence imho
