What is going on in Iraq? posted 13 June 2007 in Philosophy DiscussionWhat is going on in Iraq? by Zarathinius, Auditor

Carrying on with what Randal said, the French public probably wouldn't approve of military action in Iraq. To them, it might look suspiciously like their government was fighting a war for the United States and justifying it by twisting anti-terrorism ideals out of shape.

Everyone agrees that terrorism is a bad thing. But when our governments use terrorism to frighten (terrorize) us into accepting foolish policies, we're playing right into their hands. Imagine that: Western civilization destroyed, just the way they wanted it, but from the inside through fear and confusion (literally, terror) rather than from the outside with bombs.

Sorry, I've gone rambling off onto a tangent. view post
