If you want the truth it was the Russians.

We trained the Mujahedin they trained Al Qaeda, and they battled it out in the desert for quite some time.
Are you joking?
Soviet Union never supported anybody but Najibulla in Afganistan.
Russia never supported anybody but Northern Alliance in Afganistan.


Sure.

And I suppose those Spetsnaz operatives were just, coincidentally training the same troops and arming them with Russian weaponry- they also just decided to wear ski masks in 115 degree weather for no reason.

May I ask, where did you see that? In some action movie?


Action movies usually just montage the training scenes.


I like action movies, but I doubt that human-like terminator robots from the future actually exist.

lot of what the government does is like a periscope, you see it from a different angle and you're farther away from it.

Politicians are more like a kaleidoscope.
Ok. So why must they use the word transparent so often? Is it to disillusion the voting public, to encourage us not to vote? Because, it seems we are not being told anything.

Coal Seam Gas drilling, or Fracking (?) The doco and various news investigations suggest it is doing more damage to those living with the wells on their property than any compensation they may receive. Even if you take away the bias, much still stands up as an argument against fracking than for the practice.

But they will still keep drilling more wells, and ******** up more land.

Even I don't know what my point is, but I will leave it there for posterity.

Ok, I accept it is a kaledioscope, and depending on your interests, will depend on how you regard this. But it remains fragmented, and nothing better comes from it. I would like it to be a transparent kaleidoscope, where all facets are debated openly.

Not to discover several years later that Haliburton had as much influence on policy as did the Oval Office. I don't vote for companies, even if I were a shareholder, would not condone such actions as performed by the board of directors.

Any opposing argument is immediately dismissed by those who don't have a vested interest in changing the way things are. Because if you are not with us....etc, which is strange if the debate is coming from within and not abroad.


Uh...

What does fracking have to do with like anything?


Well I heard about all that and apparently the dangers of it was over exaggerated. Before fracking even began there was like natural gas coming from faucets sense it's found in ground water and the wells they dug to get the natural gas from were isolated areas and very little if any leaked to the surrounding areas, even though there is already tons there. The EPA has basically confirmed this.

What you have to realize is that competing oil companies don't want alternative fuels. They are going to spread misinformation in nearly every way to keep people from changing their stuff. Why would Obama cancel Canadian oil, cheaper, not from terrorists, no real worry about cleanliness than anything else, yet there was such strong hate against it- why? It's not like oil usage stopped. No, oil companies like hate against oil companies, they can use it to shut others down, and that's exactly what they did, to stur s**t up.


Of course I'm not interested in natural gas. Thorium is much more powerful and doesn't pollute at all. While global warming is pretty much a sham pollution is not- we breath in and drink the same stuff we put into the air which is a bad idea.

Thorium has the potential to be cheaper, safer, and cleaner. No chance of a melt down, 200 times more power output than uranium (and with current methods rising), cleans up nuclear waste, and is relativley safe. 3 times more common than tin and about as common as lead, and the U.S. has tons of it, literally. In the soil but in storage- it's a by product of a lot of soil and metal processing, so tons of it are in storage being used every year. The United States does not officially disclose how much but in 1958 we got enough of it from a single "cleaning" to power the U.S. for over 250 years- mind you we only need about 5 tons of it a year to power the U.S. instead of a billion tons of coal to power half.


It's half the price of coal but if we tapped int other EPA's reserves we'd have power for thousands of years that was practically free.

Declare electricity a utility so the government can produce electricity and business, home stuff, and stuff drop and stuff like carbon fiber and gold which can be created with lots of electricity become uber cheap. With carbon fiber frames comes better fuel efficiency (3-5 times, sense it's only 1.5 grams per cubic centimeter instead 7.8 like in steel) and electric cars suddenly have a viable range as well, making everything super cheapsz. But that's just me and my crazy antics. You could make electricity thousands of times cheaper and if the government made it 1/100th of what is now and basically took in the other stuff as taxes our national debt would get paid off real fast too. It's a win-win-win, but yet nobody will do it yet.

I was trying to find a different example of govts lying. Badly I admit. It was more the point at sometime, someone lied to landowners about the problems faced with fracking, who must have had authority to get permits to drill on these people's properties. Even if there is a pile of evidence suggesting the damage it does, drilling is still allowed to happen. Which really has more to do with the people who make the decisions rather than them actually lying to the electorate.

I don't really think that we ever directly financed the Taliban or Al Qaeda at all.


Of course not. And it's one of the few things I'd agree with you regarding the topic of war.
But the CIA has funded via the ISI groups for strategic or humanitarian means of which had been linked to militant Islam.

In fact Clinton gladly welcomed the Taliban to victory and immediately recognized them as the legal government in 1996. And it wasn't until a few months before 9/11 that even the Bush government stopped recognizing and supporting them.
Anyone following the 9/11 trial going on at gitmo? The trial is a ******** joke, like monty python-esque.

Hell the defense attorney(a white woman from the US) has taken to wearing a burka and urging all woman to dress "modestly" as to not upset the accused 9/11 masterminds and to 'respect their faith'

Are we still doing that whole " we don't negotiate with terrorists" thing?
Is it unconstitutional to deny "terrorists" representation in Democracy?
So why don't terrorists have representation in the U.N?, since they are both international.

Lets take japan for example. The Yakuza have representation in their country, in returned for being on the governments books. and they aren't exactly in hate with the west, nor are they agressive. Granted there are xenophopic Japanese. But they've not tried making demands to the U.S. nor try to bomb the U.S in modern times.

I guess another question I have is why are Al Queda angry at the U.S? Did we provoke them? Or are their demands to aggressive?

I hypothesize we annoy them because we support Isreal.




Understand that this Al Qaeda follows an extremist branch of the Muslim faith. America is teeming with "infidels" and women with more rights than their religion allows. So basically, America in itself is one gigantic insult and blasphemy all in one.

We also have had quite the presence in the Muslim nations because our oil interests weigh heavily on the way those countries are run. Oh, and human rights.

There's not a whole lot you can do to NOT disrespect their faith.

Just the fact that its a WOMAN is probably insulting to them.

Exactly.

I just don't get...the government claims these guys killed 3000 US citizens, which lead to multi trillion dollar wars that cost a lot of US troops...and they're worried about offending them? Reading the synopsis of these 9/11 trials, I'd say it's the accused terrorists that seem to be running the show.
