More Important-National Security

or the Economy?
For me its National Security..
I mean what would it matter if times were great and a nuclear bomb went off down the street or you were on a flight and some madman yelled-"THIS IS A HI-JACK!"..holding a gernade?

Sometimes its not the economy my greedy friends, its about security..feeling safe enough to wanna spend your cash

Out-

Without security you can't really have a functioning economy if the country is open to endless attack and threat of being wiped off the face of the earth, or taken over by a foreign power, like so many countries through history. If you can't defend yourself, your not going to have an economy or a country.

For your info, Palestine is not a country yet, and when it comes to Iraq and the Persian Gulf, Iraq is the aggressive nation. A few of the countries that Iraq has, unprovoked, invaded and or attacked in the past 15 years: Iran, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Israel. In addition Iraq has failed to comply with 16 UN resolutions passed under chapter 7 rules, in regards to their invasion of Kuwait. From a legal standpoint, Iraq's invasion of Kuwait still has not ended.

Well I promise you this -
Ask any Iraqi or Palestinian right now.."hey I have a winning lotto ticket and u will be financially secure the rest of your life BUT your nation will not be safe nor your countrymen or children , would you like this tick. It will make you very rich"?
or
"Guess what- I can guarantee your country peace, happiness and tranquility.. Your countrymen will live long joyus lives w their families.. Your country will be safe and secure..it will just cost you that winning lotto ticket, that was just given you..Can I have that ticket?

How fast would that Iraqi or Palestinian give up that ticket..for all the money in the world?

Peace-

We could have both, you know, but Dubya clearly has no domestic agenda. The war is what keeps him floating. Too much like his father.

I've had to roll coins to pay my bills in the past...I can do it again. I'd rather bring my kids up poor but safe.

I would love a strong economy where I don't have worry about losing my business or seeing my investments shrinking day by day but I would trade all of that to feel safe and know my family is safe.

We can certainly have both, and in reality do to a certain extent. But you can't have a great economy long term without first being secure.

Yes, true. The question is how far you go so your country stays secure. You know UN Charta 42/ Art.7.

You ask a difficult question Diamond regarding National security, because pre-9/11 the vast majority of our population who was too young to be eligible for the Vietnam draft have lived in a relative fear-free society.
