    You sound like an idiot. Most likely you've got involved in the SWP.

    war wôr n. A state of open, armed, often prolonged conflict carried on between nations, states, or parties.

    ter·ror·ism (tr-rzm) n. The unlawful use or threatened use of force or violence by a person or an organized group against people or property with the intention of intimidating or coercing societies or governments, often for ideological or political reasons.

    We are at war for peace. We're not intimidating anyone.

    Well if the dictionary says it, it must be true.

    Anyway, isn't a war for peace a bit of an oxymoron?

    we are intimidating all those people in iraq by coming to they country and trying to take control and run their country in the way we want with out their say. And why did we start the war on iraq? the only answer is oil, since the counrty was peacefull

    Look because we live in the west and we call our war peace it can't be classified as terrorism, perhaps if Morocco did it then it would be terrorism and we'd just sit there and say poor lttl people and not give a damn.I know ,this is how things go...Iraq is only one of our many achievemets don't you think so?What about the rest?

    i reckon its not terrorism when its an army, or a powerful country etc
    if you you think about it where does the word terrorism come from? from the word terror, when someone puts terror on someone else etc
    so you cant say it is just those people blowing themselves up that are terrorists, i reckon every army in the world also is a terrorist.

    Altho your arguement has a certian amount of logic behind it, there are a few problems.
    Your arguement hold for the members of teh Abu Grahid jail and those how civilians who have experienced cluster bombs falling on their houses. However if you compare the damage being done to Iraq before the war by sadam then its clear that things have improved for the majority of Iraqis.
    However the US is not off the hook suggesting that removing a dictator because of his human rights record and the UN resolution against him.
    There are many leaders that the US has supported with far worse records such as Pinochett and is failing at the moment to act in the Israel/Palestian conflict where UN resolutions are being broken as well.
    I dont think that we are terrorists but some of the actions that have occured in the last 12 months have certainly been very dubious.

    That's exactly what i believe because there are many innocent people suffering as a consequence of this war...and there have been many negative psychological impacts on the infants and youths...I was watching a documentary the other day about the mental state of the children and some are totally traumatised,left as orphans wandering around with wounds and wearing ASDA price Tshirts....so cheers to the war against terror....

    Oh I see... that's kind of like people ****ing for virginity, right?

    Yeh of course we're by definition, terrorisits. Our only saving grace is that we outnumber those we choose to label true terrorists.

    Assuming we are only refering to the "democratic west" its the public who chose their leaders.
