    You can blame religion for alot of that list. Reclaiming "Holy Land" and such BS...... We don't have much time on this planet so why spend it fucking killing each other over stupid shit?

    See signature for my opinion on the world.

    You signature is the saddest thing because it's the most accurate, it just depresses me of what we do to each other and for what?

    I have thought in my darkest hour to leave but I didn't because I know the hurt it causes and I see it in my job the pain of the families when something happens to their loved one, I am just waiting for the end to come which I will embrace fully

    Life? Who needs it?

    Woodrow Wilson could have prevented our current plight.

    He sends weapons to Britain and France when we had no obligation to (aside from banker profits)
    Germany has motivation to sink our ships crossing the Atlantic
    Germany sinks a british ship carrying a hundred or so americans
    America enters the war
    Allies win the War
    Germany is defeated again by the treaty of Versailles, severe debt has to be paid towards the Allies, military severely restricted, land taken away
    Germany slips into an overwhelming depression
    Hitler uses this to gain power
    WWII occurs
    After the end of WWII, the world is divided between the Capitalist West and Communist East, the Cold War begins
    America helps to overthrow the Iranian government, installs an American friendly dictator, America now has a friend on the southern soviet border
    The dictator is overthrown
    To counterbalance this, Saddam Hussein is put in power with the help of America
    Saddam would later invade Kuwait, Americans would install permanent military bases on Saudi Arabian soil to protect oil interests, this pisses off Bin Laden (another result of American Cold War policy)

    One thing I forgot to mention, is that if the holocaust never happened, Israel might not be around today, which is another thing that you can chock up on reasons why Bin Laden hates us. Don't get me wrong, I think the Jews deserve a home to call their own, but the unecessary support they receive from the west is just...bleh...not right....


    I haven't a single clue where I'm going with this. I meant for this to have a purpose, and I've lost sight of it.:erk:

    :lol:

    You're saying Woodrow Wilson could've prevented our current turmoil if he never sent weapons to England before World War 1?

    During the European war, yes, that's exactly what I'm saying.

    Technically, if the sandwich was never invented, WWI could have been prevented all together.

    I see.

    There's alot of variables in there though.... What if we never put Saddam in there in the first place?

    Its amazing to think how different the world would be if we just changed one or two events.

    We would have never had the motivation if the Cold War never started.

    And yeah, it's REALLY interesting.

    Slightly off topic maybe?

    There was a game like a year or two ago called Turning Point : Fall of Liberty. It was a game about the US in an alternate timeline. In 1939 (?) Winston Churchill was involved in a car accident. He lived. BUT in this game, he died. Meaning we never would've jumped into WWII, Britain would've been overrun and Hitler would've conquered almost the entire western hemisphere.
    THAT would be interesting.....

    Like I said, possibly off topic, bu it pertained to what we were talking about.






























    And for the record the game sucked ass. :lol:

    Yeah... I don't know if it'll happen, but I really hope it does.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Glad someone dragged this thread back up anyway. I was browsing iPlayer the other day and I noticed there's a programme on there documenting the attempted Christmas day bombing, I'm at work all day today but I think I'll have to watch that at some point. Seeing as though the whole thing was clearly a staged false flag operation.

    Anyone watched it? It's probably watered down BBC bullshit anyway.

    Haven't heard of that programme until now. But I doubt they will explore alternative theories on the matter, and if they do, they'd straw man them, like they did with the 7/7 documentary.

    I've never seen the BBC's documentary on 7/7, I bet it didn't feature Daniel Obachike!

    Just like the documentary on the Christmas day bombing (I just watched it) didn't feature Kurt Haskell. It was pretty disappointing... it didn't feature any CCTV footage of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab boarding the plane, or mention anything about the 'smartly dressed man' - or anything of the sort. But realistically it was exactly what I was expecting. We're the BBC, terrorism, terrorism, terrorism, we love fear mongering, give up your liberties for freedom - basically.

    I'm starting to get really fed up with things in my life. The elections are coming up and I can't bring myself to vote for any of the parties.

    I'm pretty fed up with the things over here too. There's no sense of freedom anymore. I look at my parents, and they feel that the income tax is necessary. WHAT?

    The Income Tax in a nutshell: "Hello, I'm the government, I own your income and the fruits of your labor, you can keep this much."

    I've never comprehended how, or why people could approve of it! Especially knowing what it's all going towards! IT'S SLAVERY! They take your labor, and spend it on themselves. They spend it on failed bureaucracies, and they spend it on an ever increasing world-wide EMPIRE!

    I'M MAD AS FUCK!!!!

    Do you guys have income tax in the UK?

    Oh dude. Yeah, we do... but we don't file a return like you guys do, our tax is AUTOMATICALLY deducted from our pay every month.

    Mad? Nah, you're very sane. ;)

    I can't tell if you're joking or not with that last bit.
