George Bush's Legacy
  
Elder & Jerry ... # 4 Recent statement and report in the US have made it clear that the present situation was caused by the removal and alienation of the very people who could have kept the country under control, and had the US and UK given proper resources to Iraq after victory instead of grabbing all the reconstruction contracts for themselves, we could have kept the people on our side


George Bush's Legacy
  
Elder & Jerry ... # 5 Elder it is great news that three cells near you that are deterred by being watched, and it is great that cells in the UK are similarly deterred. But that has nothing to do with the mistakes that were made in Iraq.
How is it that you regard my criticism of the conduct of the Iraq war as being sympathy for the terrorists?


George Bush's Legacy
  
Elder & Jerry ... # 6 There is a parallel in recent UK history. We were attacked both in Ireland and in England by ruthless and indiscriminate IRA terrorists (from Northern Ireland) Would it have been right to mount an overhwelming attack on Eire (the separate Irish contry in the south of the island, because of the action of the terrorists from the north?

Elder & Jerry ... # 7 That questions the rightness of the attack on Iraq, since 9/11 did not emanate from Iraq


George Bush's Legacy
  
Elder & Jerry ... # 8 But another parallel comes from 60 years ago, when we beat Germany. What happened then? We, (particulary the US, because you still had wealth whereas our longer fight against Hitler had bankrupted the UK) poured resources into Germany to rebuild the country, and existing systems were used to run the country ... and it succeeded and Germany has become a bastion of democracy.


George Bush's Legacy
  
Elder & Jerry ... # 9 What happened in East Germany? The Russians seized control, and the local people became puppets ... and what happened? It failed miserably, and eventually the system collapsed when the people at last had the chance to rebel against the Russian inspired communist rule.
We seem not to have learnt from that ... our actions in post war iraq have been so heavy handed, that in a couple of years, we have alienated what was originally a grateful people.<

Elder & Jerry ... # 10 Now Elder ... you say you have the 3 cells near you, which are kept quiet because they are under survielance ... tell me, what on earth does the war in Iraq, or my comments about the mistakes which have been made, even my queries as to whether the war was justified, have to do with that fact?


Bound To Walked Out Husband
  
All children are a challenge.
There seems to be a too typical attitude among some here that the man is always right, so when a suituation goes bad it must be the woman's fault.
And of course the Bible is quoted, as the husband is to be head over the woman ... so she has to submit, and be a slave and take all the blame.
Sadly for those who believe that, the Bible does place responsibilities upon the man ... too many seem to forget that


George Bush's Legacy
  
Elder & Jerry ... # 1 I am sorry not to have replied before... I have only just seen your posts.
The fact is that the war in Iraq has not stopped the terrorist attacks in the UK ... in fact the major attack which occurred is probably because of the war. And the anger of Muslims here has escalated because of the war.
I was just stating the fact.


George Bush's Legacy
  
Elder & Jerry ... # 2 I do not see that as "terrorist appeasing", because it seem pretty certain now that Iraq was not the force behind 9/11.
I do not want to appease the terrorists, they should be fought as much as possible, but it is the terrorists that should be fought, not peoples and nations who have nothing to do with the terrorism


George Bush's Legacy
  
Elder & Jerry ... # 3 I am not condemning the war against iraq. Saddam Hussein was evil, and deserved to be removed (whether the West was the right agancy to do that is another matter) But the prosecution of the war was very faulty, and wrong decisions were tasken immediately after victory, which has left an ungovernable country, in which the UK and US are embroilrd in an unwinnable situation.


Are You Born A Christian
  
What Ryan is saying would cause me to reject the very idea of God as a fabrication of control freaks.


Techniques For Spanking Your Kids
  
Abe ... Maybe the definition in the US is different, but here in the UK, "swipe" is pretty hard. Even you talk about not leaving "deep wounds" ... Are shallow wounds OK then?
Your daughter must hate the sight of yuor Bible.
Were your swiped this way as a child? They do say the the abused become abusers ...


Techniques For Spanking Your Kids
  
Even 4 swipes with a rod sounds like abuse to me.
A sharp slap on the thigh at toddler age should make all this violence at a later age unnecessary

Must We Repent Of Each Sin
  
Emcee ... I have no argument with yuo. Youwill see my comment was addressed to someone who insists that each and every sin has got to be admitted, and repented, and seems to believe that it is possible to remember them all.


Sell Beer, Wine And Cigaretes
  
" bubble gum? Soda? Candy? Soft Pretzels? Hoagies? Stromboli's?"
Are all those not "of this world"?
As are beef steaks, omelettes, autos, planes, computers.
But I agree that slthough smoking and drinking alcohol are not sins, to sell them in bulk and perhaps encourage people to excess, is wrong.
