    Even Shockzz, who hates me, had to acknowledge that what i said was correct - he even said that you were wrong to call people stupid who agreed with the thread starter that "the war was for oil and materialsm."

    It isn't stupid, its a valid opinion.
    a stupid one at that.

    That's why the Soviert regime collapsed? I didn't knew it ... well you can learn something new everyday ...
    And that's a good thing? Collapsing the Soviet regime?
    Well, I prefer it to US regime.
    Then you've obviously never lived under it, try telling that to average poor ******* who lived under communism. You can test it today by checking the standard of living of the average north korean or chinese person. In both cases, the average is terrible.

    Invading isn't stealing unless you keep it, which they won't. Oil? Firstly it'll make thousands of jobs, second do you believe the people got any benefit from the oil under saddam?
    Saddam burnt so many oil wells, even Kashmir had black snow.

    Pinochet may have been a bad man but what he did to the economy of Chile was amazing. They now have growth and a stable economy... none of which can be said about Argentina
    Well, then Hitler was a great man with that in mind ......

    Not really, if people share that view then there must be decent enough arguments for it to be deemed correct by those who support it.

    eh? i think thats our point. the "US is defending the oil rigs and not the people" is void of all argument.

    But later on she made it quite clear that she felt those who agreed that america's actions on Iraq were not justified, were stupid, just ebcause their opinion differed - despite it being a valid argument and can be well backed up.

    She further expressed this when I chatted to her, she infact said "you only say that because its an asian thing" - if we're gonna be picky like you are (purposely so you avoid teh core point of what i say, i may add) then thats ridiculous as well.

    Although the point of the matter is - People will always have differing opinions, but neither is stupid if both can be justified and argued well - as is the case in the iraq war.

    Its a simple concept to understand, and its one that the education system values entirely.

    Thats all i have to say. (for the 10th time)

    I must say I do nto have that much against Kerry. I actually think it could be good if you got a democratic president in teh US as it would then not be so much pride in it for France and Germany not to cooperate with the US about Iraq.
