Pure rubbish, but what does one expect from a publication like that?

I am not surprised by this. These are the perceptions many have based on his actions.

The Gaurdian can be ashamed for allowing a message board.

This Bush Administration has done many things that are shameful.
The actions suggested are wrong, but it is in line with the 76% of the world thinking GWB is the most dangerous man in the world.

Osama and Sadaam are quite a bit below him because of money and weapons available.

If he is elected again , I can't imagine the anomositiy the US will receive.

edited to add:

Why can't anyone seem to think outside the box? What happened to compassion and seeing yourself as the other.

I hate how divided we have become in the US and globally. I want to cry and lament the togetherness we were achieving.

And 71% of people in Baghdad support Bush's actions there.

As far as anomosity, why do so many people around the world continue to support the USA in its actions and continue to buy its goods to the toon of over 1 Trillion dollars a year? 32 countries are currently involved and supporting US operations in Iraq. The UN is about to approve another US authored UN resolution.

Please, 32 countries? It's so easy for a little country say they agree in order to continue their aid. Give me a break.

Just like Turkey finally coerced their electoriate because of $. And we fucked our northern Kurds afterall.

Scarletwine,

"Please, 32 countries? It's so easy for a little country say they agree in order to continue their aid. Give me a break."

The fact is they are helping, just like many of them did 12 years ago.

"Just like Turkey finally coerced their electoriate because of $. And we fucked our northern Kurds afterall."

Turkish troops will not be serving anywhere near Kurdish area's. I have been a bit skepitical myself though about Turkish troops in Iraq despite the fact, but the fact is, they can do a good job in non-Kurdish area's. The Turkish contingent should number around 10,000-15,000. This is what the opposition to the President has been complaining about was missing, significant numbers of troops from countries in the region. Now Bush has achieved that, so lets be objective and acknowledge the fact that this a positive thing and give credit where credit is due.

It's not the size of the nation that matters or is it? LOL

How many countries were in the "coalition of the willing" and how many were not?

And what does buying of goods justify? We buy goods from countries we don't exactly agree with.

It would matter not if GW *was* the most dangerous man on the planet, calling (whether rhetorically or not) for his assassination is abhorant.
And the argument that a message board on the internet has more allowance for free speech is preposperous. The rules of play on here (the net) should be no different to anywhere else. If sometig can't be said in mixed company, then don't say it at all.

It absolutely shits me how people use the internet to hide behind hate filled extreme ideas. Such weakness.

I agree - calling for anyones assassination is far off the limit.
And making a question out of it dosn't make it better.

Actually, legally speaking, probably not. If they do censor certain content on the board, then, yes, they are responsible for the content. If they leave it uncensored, then, no, they are not responsible for it.

But if you want to talk about "irresponsible" message boards, try one on American soil: the Yahoo! message boards.

But also let me give you an update. If you click on that link, it's gone.

So now don't all you righties need to apologize to the Guardian?

This is hilarious. Some individual posts a message on the Guardian's website and suddenly it's suggested that the Guardian supports assassination.

Presumably if some fool were to post a similar message on Interference.com you'd all be queuing up to condemn Elvis and all the mods for advocating the assassination of politicians.

Actually, the mods do a great job of eliminating such threads.

Actually, Fizz, the Mods here do an extremely good job at monitoring threads and eliminating anything that would be written like this. I can think of something that was posted within the past year that was not wise to have been posted and was elimintated.

As for the Guardian, I never anywhere said they supported assassination I criticized them for not monitoring their own board. The thread was there for a while. It grew and grew, and it was filled with hate.
