    I think as an ex professional soldier, we weren't fighting FOR peace, but the right for our generation and others to follow, to live IN peace.
    Redhead, so Rapturous, civil wars are seldom fought in the name of God, but about each sides right to live as they see fit, hence the slaughter in the US civil war, fought by god fearing men, but no doubt religion has killed more people than any other cause, but often the wars were fought about the same god,hence the terrible wars in Europe between Protestants and Catholics. The only true wars between religion were the Crusader wars. Now we call it terrorism, what a strange and brutal world we live in.

    Ahhh, but who among us would choose to not have the ability to read both (or more) sides of a situation and be able to choose what we wish to believe vs. not having a view to the world at all?

    Might not be an appropriate place to post this.

    this weekend two really good movements to bring about more public awareness:

    Marches for Save Darfur will be held countrywide. The IRC (international refugee commitee) could use your support to further their efforts..

    Invisable Children will be having get togethers in major cities worldwide this Sat. night. Their objective is to bring public awareness and political action to stop the genocide and recruitment of children for soldiers and sex slaves in Uganda under the Lord's resistance army. Check out the website.

    What continues to anger and baffle me...is how our media ignores truly significant topics around the world and instead focuses allegations involving Duke university Lacrosse team...IS significant, but what about ALL the women and children being every minute around the world. I heard recently that a girl in Southern Africa has a better chance of being than learning to read! I'm really sorry for Natalie Holloway and her family..there could be nothing worse than to loose a child. BUT what about the thousands of children night walkers in Africa who have to walk hours in both the morning and night to be CAGED in for protection against rebels? The hundreds of thousand that are being killed, maimed, tortured, starved, used as soldiers, sex slaves, shields in combat. And so much more...sorry for my rant. Our media could do so much to bring about more public awareness. I can't believe the American people and others are a callous group. I think many are unaware. What think you??


    BB4 - both here and down south (in the the US) we have the right to freedom of speech. That's good.

    But on the other hand, in BOTH countries, we have medias that rival those ruled by fascist governments for their iron-fist control over what we read and what we hear.

    They decide what we can know and what is not important for us to know. They tell us what's top priority news, their biased opinions try to manipulate us. They "educate" us in what's good and what's not good, according to their narrow views. They have omnipotent power over our access to information on what's going on in the world .... unless we have the Internet.

    Scary thing is ... millions of people read the papers and believe them, and watch or listen to the news ... and believe it.

    It's all about profits. Disgusting.

    Fighting for those who are surpressed and are literally dying for liberation and a chance for a life is worthy of our support. As said in another thread, we are our brothers keepers.

    What I have never understood are the civil wars where people are killing each other in the name of their God.

    while the word play there is a bit amusing, I feel the underlying sentiment is a bit naive...
