Robbie Fal,
Dude, you know your political activist/guitar shredding monsters.

To those who don't know who that is a picture of his name is Tom Morello, guitarist for Rage Against the Machine.

When the shiat comes down and the people revolt, how will the lynch mob tell the difference between your multimillion dollar mansion and your capitalist pig neighbor's?

In the right light, study becomes insight But the system that dissed us Teaches us to read and write So called facts are fraud They want us to allege and pledge And bow down to their God Lost the culture, the culture lost Spun our minds and through time Ignorance has taken over Yo, we gotta take the power back! Bam! Here's the plan Motherfark Uncle Sam Step back, I know who I am Raise up your ear, I'll drop the style and clear It's the beats and the lyrics they fear The rage is relentless We need a movement with a quickness You are the witness of change And to counteract We gotta take the power back!

A jail cell is freedom from the pain in my home Hatred passed on, passed on and passed on A world of violent rage But it's one that I can recognise Having never seen the colour of my father's eyes Yes, I dwell in hell, but it's a hell that I can grip I tried to grip my family But I slipped To escape from the pain.... in an existence mundane ....I gotta 9, a sign, a set and now I gotta name! Read my writing on the wall No-one's here to catch me when I fall Caught between my culture and the system....genocide!

Yes I know my enemies They're the teachers who taught me to fight me Compromise, conformity, assimilation, submission Ignorance, hypocrisy, brutality, the elite All of which are American dreams.....

Just a little bit O' rage for you all.

ZKM....I would guess you could tell because morello would be jamming out on his front porch for a little bit of encouragement. That man can play some serious shiznit.

Rei: I wasn't talking from my ass when I said that Tony Blair released evidence linking Osama to the 9-11 attack to the public on October 4th. The bombing did not start until October 8th. The Taliban did not offer Osama until a week after the bombing started. They had weeks to give up Osama and avoid being bombed into the stone age (again).
Also bear in mind that even before the evidence was released to the public, it was shared with just about every nation we consider friendly. What happened on Sept 11th was an act of war, and the information we gained in the period after was considered intelligence. You don't share intelligence with enemies, known or suspected. They would have learned the sources of our information, what areas of their organization might be compomised, and possibly enough warning for as-yet-undetected cells to destroy incriminating artifacts, lay low and/or pull out altogether from the US, for use against it later.

Damn Rei, you are SOOOOOoooo racist and bigot against warlords. How can you assume what they want? You live by some strange standards.

About the Nukes. "Give a man a fish he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish he will eat for life."

What happened during the 7-day-war again, you never explained that properly?

Daisy Cutter.... "Big Mother Farker of a bomb that scares the sh*t out of anyone nearby"

Very useful for killing occupants of caves. Sucks all the air out of the cave and causes occupants to die in a very unplesant way.

other effect is concussion injury and broken ear drums.

No kidding they were crying. Ther were pissed that they didn't get to be with those virgins.

and within three seconds of being here, i find comments like "rei is a female? well, that sure explains the emotionally charged and logically challenged arguments..."

so i will now attach a note to my monitor reminding me to give up on you guys.

I am not concerned greatly with the methods and tactics used in completing the US objective in Afghanistan...however, HAVING a clear objective would be a good start. And we probably do have that. Concerned over American casualties? Then support a swift and total victory. The less we fuss over how nice we're treating the enemy, the fewer of us die.

What bothers me the most about this war is what happens here, on the homefront, to our liberties. There's been a gradual erosion of personal freedom since the country was established because X number of people don't like what Y number of people are doing and want them to stop. Only the majority are "protected" from coercion with legal force...and Ashcroft comes off as a power-hungry paranoic who absolutely needs to know the minute details of everyone's life in order to "protect" them (ie, make them jump in line with everyone else)

So, in regards to the Afghan situation,
1. Go in, rub out the Taliban with extreme prejudice, set up a government condusive to US trade interests.
2. Quit using this as an excuse to foist liberty-eroding policies on the American people.

All you tinfoil hat wearing oil conspiracists:

your premise is patently absurd. Yes Unocal (and the Argentinian Bridas) approached the Taliban about building a pipeline but NOBODY else. And you know why? Any clever capitalist knows Afghanistan never has (or will, probably) support the kind of stability needed for an investment that size and cost to pay off. Whould you travel halfway around the world to a mountain flanked landlocked country to begin a costly engineering project with bandits, rebels and a semi-piractical government hacking at your shins? their are 96 million barrels of apperciable oil in Afghani reserves. In †he grand scheme of oil politics, thats not very much. The cost of getting at those is probably greater than their total value. If it was our goal to start trump up a war to get at oil I think we would have started with Syria or Iraq.

I wasn't talking from my ass when I said that Tony Blair released evidence linking Osama to the 9-11 attack to the public on October 4th.

Article, please. Methinks you're confusing the release of information with *pakistan* with release of information to the public.

What happened on Sept 11th was an act of war

An act of war which the Taliban did not commit, only an act which one of their allies committed. On the other hand, Osama had *already declared war* on the US, so that was nothing new.

Once again: you're confusing the Taliban (under the warlord Omar) with al Qaeda (under the warlord Osama bin Laden)

What happened during the 7-day-war again, you never explained that properly?

What did you want me to tell you about concerning the 7-day-war?

Concerned over American casualties? Then support a swift and total victory.

No. I could care less about american military casualties - those are people who signed up to have themselves put on the front lines. They're given every precaution to make sure that they're not killed. What *I* care about are innocent civilians - and I *refuse* to weigh the value of an innocent life more because they live in the land of SUVs and Starbucks than a place where 1/4 to 1/3 of all children are severely malnourished. And when we take more innocent lives than we lost, unecessesarily, so that we don't have to risk our forces by putting them on the ground any more than necessary - just ignoring how silly our "strategy" for "wiping out terrorism" has been - I find nauseating.

What bothers me the most about this war is what happens here, on the homefront, to our liberties.

That's what bothers me the second most. The Bush administration is so authoritarian, it's scary. Immigration trials are now an alice-in-wonderland situation, where whatever the judge rules is irrelevant, only what Rumsfield's office chooses (without a trial whatsoever) matters. Church wiretapping, military tribunals (have you looked at the rules for those??? 2/3 vote needed, circumstancial/improper evidence allowed, no appeal, death sentance can occur immediately after trial - and the public can never hear about it if they choose. Talk about railroading...)... etc.) Bush even does the little "Hail Hitler" salute now, which is just unnerving ;)

"What happened during the 7-day-war again, you never explained that properly?

You never stated what happened. The reason I bring this up is because you stated...

"That's a laughable concept. The Palestineans (who we're concerned about in this conflict) couldn't take out the Israelis even if the US military donated all the tanks and bombs in our arsenal. The Israelis are nuclear."

The reason I bring this up is because the U.S. would not give any tanks at all to the Palestineans... (based on the behavior of the 7 day war) Quite the opposite..

Now yes there may have been some distributed causes to the crisis of 9-11 however just because your a friend of a person that no one likes (Israel) doesn't mean that bullies and sneaks (extermist muslim nations) have a right to pain or hurt you (United States)...

As citizen critisizing this behavior of our armed forces is a kin to a parent beating and grounding a child for defending himself against a bully that is a sneak...

Rei: http://www.domesticterrorism.com/article1112.html

or http://www.seacoastonline.com/news/10_5_w1.htm

You will probably notice the word "circumstantial". If it was enough to convince America's allies (especially in light of the criticism they regularly direct its way), it shouldn't be immediately discounted. Doing so would seem to me to inflate the US's actual influence and cheapen the integrity of its allies.


The Taliban were in charge of Afghanistan, and given the opportunity to cooperate. One would assume those who run a country have the power to arrest and hand over a criminal living within that country's borders. That the Taliban has strong links to al Qaeda made their lack of cooperation all the more dangerous for Afghanistan.
What is now happening to Afgahnistan could have prevented but for the pride? stupidity? cowardice? of the Taliban.

So in other words, you think that because I believe that giving my life to preserve freedoms for my country is an honorable thing to do, that makes my life worthless in your eyes. Thanks for your support.

Its stupid comments like that that makes me pissed off about you. You forget about the blood that was shed to give you your freedoms. Your rights were not given to you, on a silver platter or on a 225-year old parchment paper. Those rights were given to you by the blood of your grandfathers, your great grandfathers, and millions of American men and women who decided that freedom for their children and families was worth more than life itself.

Freedom is not free. You're saying that the countless men and women who have fought and died defending YOUR country aren't worth as much as the thousands people who were killed in the Pentagon and WTC. Its tragic they died, sure. They didnt have a chance to defend themselves. Its more tragic that you discount the lives of those people who gave us freedom to build and populate the WTC.

Hope your lame ass gets shot, so I can care less about you too.
