PBzeer Wasn't on the CNN site a moment ago, but I'm talking more than just one day anyway. The thread you're looking for is in the Cruising forum.

painkiller PB,

Current Yahoo headlines say that Al-Qaeda stormed a jail in Mosul and freed 140 of their buddies. Not so good news.

painkiller So what's this bulldog thread everybody keeps talking about? I looked but couldn't find it based on the thread titles.

PBzeer In keeping with the title of this thread, am I the only one that's noticed how little we hear about Iraq since the new General took over? It can't be going too bad, or it would be all over the media, so perhaps it's working as planned?

TrueBlue It's actually 31 pages of some very slanted discourse CD (on my screen anyway) . . . but, who's counting?

Cruisingdad Could someone please give me the cliff notes on this thread. I have come up for air from the pool of S*** the hot water heater granted me, and I do not have time to read the the FIFTEEN PAGES!!! that have been going on!!

Or, should I just go to the bulldog thread?

Gotta go!

sailaway21 Ok Chrondi,
I am in favor of poverty, war, starvation, and ignorance in general. I am not aware of ANY of these conditions existing in the world today. The other guys on here are alot smarter than me though, so just send all the info on the above topics to me direct. I really want to raise my awareness of these issues. Don't blame my parents or my culture. I have lived a very sheltered life. BTW, that fella who said you were Rip Van Winkle and you woke up in an eighth grade civics class was off base. You can't tell these guys anything, so just tell me. I'm starting to feel your pain.

sailingdog Don-

One of my favorite quotes is Edmund Burke's:

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."

Unfortunately, some countries have taken the stance that it isn't their problem, so why should they do anything about it. There are many things that we could let go by the wayside, but morally, ethically, politically or environmentally, we have an obligation to do something about it.

The world is too small and too fragile for us to go about not caring any longer. Pollution, war, terrorism, global warming, and many of the other threats that we now face do not respect national borders to any degree—they often do not distinguish between race, class, nationality. A car bomb really doesn't care who is next to it when it goes off...regardless of the intent of the maker.

donrr1 You've (or should I say Gordan Sinclair) said it all sailingdog, a couple of weeks ago I responded to a poll on a German nes website. The poll was asking readers what, if any possition the EU should take on what is happening in the Middle East. My response was 'anything other than the sideline stance it has at the moment'.
