When did i agree to live in a warzone??

This isn't very funny anymore
all day there are helicopters flying over my house, and the worst part is that it are american helicopters.
Bush is really preparing for war.
i know that they are bringing in equipment from germany to the harbor of antwerp for shipment with 800 soldiers, but now they are also flying in Chinooks, some Blackhawks and lot's of Apache's

Well it looks like not everyone in the U.S. supports Bush. Let's hope public opinion persuades him.

Well, this Ferrari driver does not like SADDAM and wishes him to go.
May he rotten in Hell.

Bush is my President and I will support him in this matter. I did not vote for him.

Spaceboy,
I have always admired the Swiss. They are neutral because no nation wishes to invade it. The Swiss would not lose. Those Swiss are smart and heavily armed.

Someone my wife knows is Swiss. Thursday, he gets a ride in my beast. Not only is Switzerland interesting, but that Swiss is intelligent. From what I know of it but I have never been there, Switzerland is the California of Europe.

hehe..for your info I'm belgian (flemish part) but living in Switzerland. it's a nice country with a high life standard. But it's not paradise neither. Everything is very expensive even for us (insurance, rent, ...) and politics is very slow. Normal, it's a federation. And they have that "referendum" thing where people can vote if that want a law or not. Often, nothing moves and then you have to wait a couple of years to have another votation...pfff..

But I prefer working here than in Brussels :wink:

Didier.

Imagine I am a commander of 5,000 to 10,000 Iranian soldiers. Of course, I have been in the military for over 15 years. I fought in the Gulf War against President Busch, the first. Now his son is coming after me.

Hooray. My soldiers will stop the enemy just like before.

Yipes. I am in deep do-do. What should I do to survive?

DJ,
You do not live in a war zone and those helicopters are there to insure that you will not live in a war zone. Back in 1945 Belgium welcomed the sight of the American military yet, in the early parts of the European conflict there were many protesting against American involvement in a war with Germany because it was clearly a "European problem". Saddam is no different than Hitler.

Read President Bush's Oct 9th speach on the Iraqi threat:
http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/relea...0021007-8.html

It isn't about oil. The US doesn't even buy Iraqi oil. The country we buy the most oil from is, in fact, Canada. It isn't about saving face either. It is about protecting those who cannot protect themselves from a murderous tyrant.
