Well, sure we knew it!!, Europe and the US sold Irak the MDWs to fight Iran!!!

Man, those hippies really crack me up.
Did that bike ride REALLY have to be naked? Seriously. What these jack a$$es need to do, is to actually be useful and try to invent a car that will not use petrol and be a heck of a lot cheaper on the long run than the regular petrol oil stuff. Need SOLUTIONS, not noise.
It's like protecting nature. That hippie camping next to a national park pretending its his own work isn't going to make any difference. Do you know how to make the difference? Make money. Organize and fund meaningful and productive projects. BUY KEY LAND. Grab yourself a geographer and mark out the most important parts of the water basins and buy land there.
It's a bit like someone I know who treks up the mountain every sunday to feed the birds. What did that achieve other than keep that person fit? Nothing. The fitness bit is great, but for birds, for nature etc., which is supposed to be the whole point of the trek, it doesn't make any difference whatsoever.

Also stauro, yes Europe and the US backed Saddam to try to curb the relgious fanaticism that was sweeping the region. Maybe just a little too much. But when Saddam proved to be a very bad egg, something had to be done. Europe didn't want to do it. Kind of like screwing up Africa and leaving it be. If you play with your toys, you have to clean up the room afterwards.
Just because of one mistake it doesn't mean you have to pack up and go home. No that's the quitters mentality. Make a mistake? Try to fix it.

I have no problem with people who peacefully protest something, but it's the clowns who jump on the bandwagon and start wrecking stuff that make me mad...

After all, wasn't it a protest for peace?

Kinda like how some hippies at my school tape excessive amounts of paper flyers on the wall saying "SAVE THE TREES."
An irony perhaps?

Yet again, we have people weeping and wailing and whining about something that is already over and done with. We're in Iraq and we've removed its former government. Most of the protesting seems to be focussed on how wrong it was for the USA and allies to invade Iraq to begin with. I disagree, but its a pointless debate in all honesty. We're there. Its not possible go back in time and not invade Iraq, so enough complaining about it already!

Some of the protests are naive enough to believe that the USA should pull out completely right now. Nothing could be more irresponsible. Those same jackasses would turn right around an say that its all our fault if we did pull out now, leaving Iraq to collapse into anarchy.

No end of the complaints these people with toss in, but do they actually have any viable alternative solutions? Nope, they just want to complain.

The greatest waste of energy comes when you spend it countering the protesters. They just want to draw attention, that's the way they are.
