I'm bringing this to the top since the last thread seems to be getting into a jumble.
Gyron: [blue]Yea, you are right about people abusing the freedom in the States, I remember someone on this board saying some guys only want to British when it suits them (refering to the prisoners at Camp X-ray). I certainly agree with Thomas Jefferson. An example is here in Zimbabwe, a number of guys are alleged to have voted for the ruling party coz they were afraid of a civil war in the event of a win by the opposition. After all, the army generals had gone on tv warning that they would never salute anyone who did not take part in the fight against the colonialists.[/blue]
[blue]What really pissed me off about the Bush admin is why they dispayed those gory images of Uday and Quasay, do you think it was appropriate?[/blue]
I think it was entirely appropriate given the circumstances. Yes it was rather hypocritical to do it after protesting the Iraqi displays of dead US soldiers, but without proof of their deaths, Iraqi citizens and conspiracy theorists alike would only assume they were still alive somewhere.
