We better do something about this huge problem of Global Warming pronto,
or we will become cannibals.

So, says the illustrious ex-husband of Hanoi Jane Fonda.

What a hoot.

He's not that far off on Iraq. I don't know where the cannibalism insanity comes from.

All he said was that if a foreign country invaded us for no good reason (To remove our President because they didn't like him, for example) that we would be fighting back too. He's right. Just because we're in power doesn't make us morally superior. Of course it's a little more complicated, as we invaded the easiest country to invade and are now fighting extremists from all over the middle east in Iraq, but for some of them, that's all it is-- defending their country.

It's really obvious to anyone who is actually listening that the Iraqi people don't want us there. Why do you think that's any different from what would happen if you were in their position.

I guess you have forgotten about the 17 UN Resolutions that Saddam ignored.

From what I have read and still read, many of the Iraqi people like us there.
It is all in who you want to believe. McCain just got back from there, Oliver North goes over there on a regular basis, who do you know that has gone over there and checked it out with their own eyes? Clinton? Obama?
The democrats shot General Petraus down before he even spoke in front of the Senate on how the surge was working. The only thing they would have believed was if the General said it wasn't working. I'm sure the truth lies somewhere in the middle.

I wouldn't be believing anything McCain says about Iraq. He can't even work out which groups belong to where and who is fighting for what.

And those UN resolutions just pop up their ugly head again. Well, Saddam wasn't alone in that - we've been through this before. Still not a good enough reason to invade and decimate his country.

I like the way people can diss the UN when it doesn't suit their purposes to approve of them and write them off when it comes to the US actually following any of their directives, and then loudly protest that `Well, Saddam ignored the UN so we HAD to go to war!!' to justify something that should never have happened.

"Do as I say, not as I do", huh? Very convenient.

When I hear this from Turner, why do I keep hearing, in the back of my mind...

Hey now, McCain just "mis-spoke" At least he didn't say, "As we landed in Somalia we had to run for cover because we were under Sniper fire" ha ha ha
There is a huge difference between a slip of the tongue and an outright lie.
Cripe, I get those two factions mixed up.

The U.N. is very corrupt, but it is all we have.

I do. Anyone here ever see the movie Soylent Green, starring the late Charlton Heston?

Unfortunately, whether caused or accelerated by humans or not, global warming is a naturally occuring reality.

What is NOT natural is the rapid depletion of natural resources through human consumption, and that depletion may trump global warming in the short term.

We are an INCREDIBLY arrogant society if we think for one minute that we are impervious to the climate shifts that naturally occur on this planet.

And said climate shifts can cause chaotic change. One really good volcanic eruption could send this planet into decades of cold darkness. Yellowstone Park is sitting on top of a giant caldera that could wipe most of the USA off a map within a matter of minutes.

But hey - it's much easier to live in a bubble of pretense, isn't it?

How did a thread about Ted Turner's comments on global warming become all about the war?

Ummm, maybe from the link in the OP, the words of Mr. Ted Turner.

Lol! I know - how much of a shocker was THAT??? Her real agenda just becomes more and more clear, doesn't it?

Yes, but Cindy, you're not campaigning to become the next President of the United States - arguably the most important job in the world.

It is - which is a shame. Maybe something better will happen sooner rather than later.
