Good concept. Bush should have gone through the United Nations, his actions were a bit headstrong.

I wouldn't recommend dragging religion into such a topic, though; it dampens your approach.

dragonorion Featured By Owner May 9, 2004
Mmmm, I think it's relevant. Bush professes to be a Christian.

Also, I put up the poster all over campus, which is a Christian school. Needless to say, I got a lot of feedback. :D

Kennedy was HEAVILY shunned for being a Roman Catholic even though religion had nothing to do with his election or his abrupt term as President. In a personal opinion, the issue is just another button people push when they're out of ideas unless it directly affects his presidency...

Having lived in the USA my entire life with no war, it's a very strange feeling to have the last few years at war, and watching it from the outside. I've found that, at least in my area, Americans are generally not well-liked. My friends always will make American jokes, until they remember that I'm American, and then they stop, but lately I am tending to agree with them. Some things this country does are so stupid.

Great piece. That many people have really died? That's very sad. This whole effort was supposed to free them. You can't free people once there is no one left to free.

Yeah, I feel exactly the same way. And it's only be reinforced since I've come to the states.

They don't know how many people exactly, because they don't count the bodies. The quote is on the bottom of the poster.

Yeah, I see it now. So, I hate to be picky but where did you get the numbers from, then?

Even if the numbers are wrong, even one innocent person killed is enough to be upset about. :no:

You'll see the estimates on the left. I used the 10715 number; which is the maximum estimate, but the minimum; 8865, is only 2 dots off.

sorry to butt in
but i live in israel, and i dont want to sound like a fucking prick or anything, but (and you have my sympathy for the us civilians) the iraqui's pretty much deserved what they got. they started killing us, so in retaliation we you killed them back as revenge for 9/11....and i dont want to start on how many dots you wuld hav to put there for israeli citizens.

just my opinion..sorry

You're very very right, and it proves my point exactly.

Unfortunatly, Americans have to have a poster like this on order for them to realize this; that is the language they speak. They won't realize war is wrong because they see nothing wrong with killing innocent people.

The words at the bottom are the final message; Thou Shalt Not Kill.

And yeah, I know about the Iraquis vs. the Isrealis as well.

The sick thing is, the US provides training AND weapons to Iraquis, Isrealis, Palestinians and Pakistanis. That's sick.

yeah i know, your abloslutely right.
i lived in the us for about 5-6 years when i was very small and i can hardly remember anythig. but i do remember it sometimes around the Gulf War. the gulf war was just before i moved to the states (i am 17 now) and i remeber (very clearly) all the reports on the casualties, all the killed and the injured. it was horrible. then i the states they continued talking abut it, and, you probably remember better than me, but even then the us was always (and always has) looking for ways to "fight the terrorism", end saddams regime.
believe me man, here in israel it isnt much better. i am gettind drafted next year, and thats not something i want.
and the government is always going on about war, and how we should ide gor uor country and bla bla bla......
anyway, thanks for listening.
great message and keep it up!

Yep we Americans are twisted. We love our Colas, movies, and stuff. Other countries do not have that. Never mind that enterprising individuals thought up of such things, for there own profit of course, and never mind that we enjoy such things. Oh yeah, I think US troops should stop going into people's houses in Iraq and killing innocent people for no reason. United States is a tyranntical power that kills. Yep. Im just surprised we haven't dropped nukes on them. After all it was for vengence, right Sun? Oh yeah, and those thousands killed, yeah those bad bombers are doing it, you know, freedom fighters like the Base. I think US troops are bad. Bad Bad Bad.

I don't design life. I'd rather let people be.
Let others decide what they think life is.
I too believe in hope, I see it happening. Its still too early to call the war lost.
I too care for humanity, however, I don't care for those that don't care for humanity, and don't let other points of view. IE people that berate others and call them brainwashed.

*Shrugs*
If I don't care for those who don't care for humanity, how am I better than them since they are human?
If I don't care for those who don't care for humanity, who will care for them?
If I don't care for those who don't care for humanity, then I am only careing for about 6% of the population of the world.

WHy should I want to be better? Why should I care for someone's life if they don't give a damn for mine? (Although this doesn't mean to be callous)
Why do I should I stick up for someone that wouldn't care?
You are right, then I guess it is 6% of the population. Where did you get that poll number?
So if someone doesn't want help, I should sacrifice my money, my labor, so that they can go on not caring?
Help people that want to be helped works

Why should you want to better yourself?
That seems like a question that answers itself. If you don't want to better yourself, then the only way you can go is down.

Why stick up for someone else's life? Because they are a human being. Giving yourself for someone else's sake is the highest thing there is.

If someone doesn't want to help, how are you going to convince them otherwise by not caring?
