Did anyone else catch Pope Tony in the Guardian? http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/belief/2009/sep/07/religious-communities-nations-development

Blair is so self-righteous, it's shame he won't bother to read the numerous comments - the vast majority of which are... well... have a look for yourself and enjoy!

Of course not. Rich men declare War but, the poor actually fight the war.

100% with you there. Bush picks a fight and Pope Tony goes along like the good little lap dog he was. You can be sure I didn't vote for him.

Note also that neither one of them had family in any of the wars they are responsible for.

"Excellent - it's about time someone from the US recognized the problems she's causing for the rest of us."

Now Marc, there is plenty of blame to go around. Blair went happily along with Bush into Iraq.

Anyone else heard the latest tactic of creation "scientists"? They're currently exposing Darwin as a bad naturalist, saying that his Galapogpos research was flawed! (This of course means that evolution must be wrong.) To me, the libel laws should extend to our scientists to protect them from this sort of outrageous feigned ignominy and downright lies.

Excellent - it's about time someone from the US recognized the problems she's causing for the rest of us. I hold you in high regard as one of the people who can affect change: because every change starts with an idea.

I created one it's waiting for approval. Once approved I'll post URL.

This is the comment wall, Louis. It's almost always off topic!

The three things you mention are three of the worst scourges of our time - and the fourth is a major factor which the US is a major player in. 'W' refused to sign Koyoto - but that's political as well as bloody ignorant. I wonder if Obama will - that's a hotter potato than his health bill! But you're right, we could take this to a debate - anyone care to start it?

I'm not trying to make a big deal. But I get notices that comments have been made to the group to find out that it's off topic.

Of course I don't live in a house that has no glass. I do have a tendency to make flippant comments here and there.

I might be biting off more than I can chew here, but..
"country is directly or indirectly responsible for a lot of the world's trouble's"

War in Iraq? Yes
Center of the christian fundee and creationists? Yes
Arrogant foreign policy? Yes

What other things can be contributed to the USA alone? I understand in many things USA is a major contributor, but not alone. For instance, carbon emissions.

And of course I just contributed to the issue I initially stated.

Perhaps the group should be renamed "ORIGINS AND TERMINATIONS:..." :-)
