It is time to fight. The U.S. is already attacking Syria and will attack other countries, too! U.S. presidents has done it his whole story to exploit raw materials of many countries. I think everyone is aware of it here. This is the consequence of american capitalism! At the moment there is a struggle between the dollar and the euro. The EU is not as bold and unscrupulous as the United States. Therefore, the euro will lose if nothing is done. You have certainly already heard of the New World Order, right? I think if the dollar wins it will be your fine "president". The question now is which would you prefer? I live in the EU and I am not happy of the "politics" in the U.S.. I think you prefer the European standards, too.? So I think it is time to destroy the dollar! The sooner this happens the milder it is. One thing is certain, the dollar and the euro are dying. The longer they will survive the bigger the crash! What do you think about it?

We don't have to crash the dollar: the global corporate financial complex is crashing the world economy.

Good idea. I think I shall cut off my nose now.

My ATM does not dispense euros. We need to put ATMs that dispense Euros on Wall St to keep the fight alive! It sounds like we need to give Syria euros, too. Why did we hire Obama in the first place?

They are too integrated. Collapse of one, $ or €, will bring collapse of the other, because it will cause some countries to default on their debt. This whole system is like house of cards.

Does that explain why I haven't heard of sub-prime lenders who engaged in fraud having been arrested?

wait . . . did I say that right?

None of them are due in court are they? I mean, no one has even asked for bail . . . . or did I miss something?

We don't need to crash the dollar. Its already being done by, China, The Middle East and countries in North Africa. China is using all the dollars and bonds they hold to pump up there own currency. As for the Middle East and North Africa, we have fallen into the same trap the Soviet Union back in the 1980's. A prolonged war that diverts much needed money and resources combined with economic strife in the Soviet Union was what led to the SU's downfall in the early 90's. The US is simply repeating history at this point.

I am not sure where you get your news however the US is not attacking Syria.

Syria is attacking Syria.

Apparently Europe is doing everything they can to save the euro. The US dollar is going to crash no matter what. It's already part of the 'big plan.' However, you are wrong when you say 'This is the consequence of American capitalism.' What's more accurate is that it's a consequence of American imperialism, which is a much bigger problem.

American Imperialism is part of the plan to destroy our economy, our reputation, our freedom, our way of life, and even our lives. This is pretty typical of the kind of duplicitous rhetoric that got us into our current imperial adventures.

http://www.usatoday.com/news/opinion/editorials/2003-05-05-boot_x.htm

"What is the greatest danger facing America as it tries to rebuild Iraq: Shiite fundamentalism? Kurdish separatism? Sunni intransigence? Turkish, Syrian, Iranian or Saudi Arabian meddling?

All of those are real problems, but none is so severe that it can't readily be handled. More than 125,000 American troops occupy Mesopotamia. They are backed up by the resources of the world's richest economy. In a contest for control of Iraq, America can outspend and outmuscle any competing faction.

The greatest danger is that we won't use all of our power for fear of the "I" word — imperialism. When asked on April 28 on al-Jazeera whether the United States was "empire building," Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld reacted as if he'd been asked whether he wears women's underwear. "We don't seek empires," he replied huffily. "We're not imperialistic. We never have been."

That's a fine answer for public consumption. The problem is that it isn't true. The United States has been an empire since at least 1803, when Thomas Jefferson purchased the Louisiana Territory. Throughout the 19th century, what Jefferson called the "empire of liberty" expanded across the continent. When U.S. power stretched from "sea to shining sea," the American empire moved abroad, acquiring colonies ranging from Puerto Rico and the Philippines to Hawaii and Alaska. "

A good link. And the message that American imperialism is a good thing? That comes as no surprise, considering the source; USA Today, about as MSM as they come. And the author of that piece? Max Boot, an Olin senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. We all know what the CFR is all about. Olin Corporation, by the way, is a major manufacturer of chemicals and especially ammunition. Go figure.

Boot is certainly one of the usual suspects. I remember when I first heard about Boot's kind of rhetoric. I dismissed the claims as hyperbola. When I actually took the time to read documents such as PNAC's "Rebuilding America's Defenses", I was stunned. I never suspected that such brazen sociopaths had any proximity to the US power structure.

I'm beginning to think the whole lot of them are sociopaths. How else to describe their wanton destruction of their own country? I've saved that pdf. I'll definitely give it a good read. Thanks.

Damn. Just as accurate a question would be, who do I not recognize. A virtual whose-who of power players! Bill Bennett, Jeb, Scooter, Cheney, Rumsfeld. Jeez. I'm definitely going to read those 90 pages after awhile. Now I'm curious.

I have to tip my hat to David Ray Griffin for calling that to my attention in his New_Pearl_Harbor

I'll check that link out after my computer gets done downloading. This ancient machine has a tendency to crash if I try to do both. Ah well, it's 12 years old.

That's another weapon they have against us. You have to stay current to stay connected to the latest and greatest. But that only goes so far. I also hang out on USENET.

[-] 1 points by gnomunny (6647) from St Louis, MO 2 years ago

In my case it's been a question of economics (unemployed) but soon to be rectified. I have a better computer but it needs a few parts replaced first. I've heard about USENET but haven't been on it yet. I'll have to go there and check it out soon. I hear there are some excellent sites.

once the arab spring is over, america will be off the hook for billions we have been paying to prop up dictators for over 30 years. you think leaving it alone and continuing to pay to prop up the extortionist is a good thing? freedom for Syrians is a bad thing? i think you don't read enough.

Agreed. It seems the only way for real change to occur is disaster. The opportunity for the president and the elected officials to dialog with the occupiers seems to have been lost. What a shame.
