U2 supported military intervention to stop the genocide in the Balkans.

therefore, U2 supports everything the US military has ever done or will ever do.

Some members of U2 are known to be religious of the Christian variety, that must mean they support bombing abortion clinics and starting wars with 3rd world countries, that IS the central theme of the bible after all.....

Why don't I feel bad about giving the "yes on 8, religious freedom for parents" banner wavers the finger this morning while giving my high school son a ride to school ??? (he thought it was funny by the way, he finds those people as dumb as I do)

Look, U2 gave COBL to Obama to use at the convention, and we all know Obama is palling around with terrorists, I mean, he might as well be Bin Laden...therefore, U2 are guilty by association....I mean, they're probably finishing they're fucking album in Afghanistan.

U2 know that it was important to stop Communism by any means necessary. that's what Bullet is all about.

"Bullet" is clearly an endorsement of the Iran-Contra affair. Ollie North is a roadie for U2 now.

"U2" IS a singular noun. the band is... the band members are...

U2 aren't suing anyone for using their music in a campaign, right?
Ouch, my head hurts this morning

They will when John McCain and Sarah Palin announce they're going to dance to "Babyface" at the inaugural ball if they win.

As per Edge they are social democrats. Therefore = centre-left. They aren't necessarily communists but they want a mixed economy a la European style. Approximately 40-60% of GDP run by the government. Socialists tend to focus on redistribution of wealth as opposed to the communist insistance on government ownership. The only problem with their beliefs is their movement of capital to other countries with lower tax rates does look like a double standard.

They believe in a co-existence of different creeds and religions and democracy vs. dictatorship. They also believe that redistribution of wealth should happen internationally to help the world's extreme poor.

Therefore he's not a conservative. Hating Thatcher and Reagan would be an easy clue when looking at Bullet the blue sky and Red Hill Mining town.

That's what I've always been taught too, but I notice the people I know from Australia (and a few other places, but I know more people there) say the band are as well as saying the band members are. So I think which is correct depends on where you are from.

This is a pretty hilarious (and cheeky) thread. I like it.

U2 said there's never gonna be peace on earth, so clearly they endorse war.
