Not all of us are so easily led. I don't think anyone here has that problem. So the ones you are referring to don't read, listen or otherwise educate themselves. Can't hold back from everyone else because of the unlightened ones. There is some really serious stuff out there but for the most part entertainment is just that, entertainment. Sorry for some of the few that take it too seriously, but I not willing to give up my rights to see, listen and participate because some get it wrong.
Nite all..

wait... the celebrity protesters, such as sheryl crow who is one of the most outspoken musicians in this anti-war movement yet traveled with hillary clinton to kosovo in support of our millitary action there, are slanted towards the left?

Sounds like the "I am against war with a Republican Commander-in-Chief" principle to me.

Just because you're opposed to war on Iraq doesn't mean you have to be opposed to all wars. I know lots of people who are passionately against war on Iraq but who supported war in Afghanistan, or indeed in Kosovo for that matter.

Just look at the vote in the UK Parliament this week - 199 MPs voted for an amendment saying war is unjustified at this time, and yet there was very little opposition to the attack on Afghanistan in 2001.

Unless you're a pacifist there's absolutely no contradiction in opposing one war but supporting another.

And Sheryl Crow rocks for no other reason than that her music is excellent

It's just easier for warmongers to have a temper tantrum if they think *everyone* is against them. It's that "martyr" / "moral crusade" satisfaction they get.

slobodon... no real threat to anyone except people within the states of the former yugoslavia
saddam... already been in wars with many of his arab neighbors... attempted to take over kuwait, with saudi arabia as his next target... has repeatedly lobbed missiles at tel aviv... has biological and chemical weapons, has all the materials neccesary to put to gether a "dirty" nuclear device, and is actively pursuing a full fleged nuclear program
slobodon...

What are you talking about?

He slaughtered Croats, Bosnian Muslims and Kosovar Muslims. He did not put his own people (ie. Serbs) in death like camps, nor did his forces rape Serbian women.

when i said "own people" i meant as in people from all of the former yugoslavia... not spliting them up into their respective ethnic groups. that's how a friend of mine who grew up in belgrade always put it, so that's how i put it as well. i appologize for not being more clear in that regards

Headache didn't see that there was allready war in that country when the Nato attacked, in Iraq there's peace - and the chance to get things done without war.
