Can we all agree something BIG is about to happen?

    Obama wants to take arms down, but nobody else does. Can we set a peaceful example or are we entering a cold war situation with a lot more trigger happy countries involved?

    I normaly don't post youtube video's but this one sums up what everyone else is doing as we are dissarming. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sj91NH5fvw

    I have my religious beliefs that explain what is about to happen, but if one doesn't think something big is about to go down- reset your intuition.

      Nah! Take away the dramatic music and cuts, there is nothing scary about this. If Americans wants to see a peace maker president in some strange way I am used to that, but to try and sell that the USA admin is somehow like it is because it is evil or naive is influence from other pre existing beliefs, it makes no sense otherwise. smile

      That video is dated pre election, it's nothing new.

      The something big that is about to happen is perhaps going to happen within the shores of the USA because of the state of their economy.  Don't need to change intuitive feelings on that one.

      America may say we are disarming but really we most likly have more nukes then anyone and more advance then anyone. And one other thing religion has nothing to do with it, it's common sence that knowledge leeds to self distruction.

      It's only a matter of time before humans will try to exterminate each other.  It happened before in WWII, but we didn't have the weapons of mass destruction we have now.  It has nothing to do with your religious belief, however.

    the video is obama prior to and after the election. The thread is not based around the video however.

    take Iran for instance; Israel will react or they will become a nuclear waste land.

    Well there was a report that Iran has successfully test fired a rocket that can reach Tel Aviv.  You bet the Israelis are probably planning to do something to prevent that from happening.

      Why would you say that? Israel has been ready for years, and despite the Ayatollah and president of Iraq both being as mad as whistling kettles the Iranians are not stupid enough to bomb Israel! smile

        You had posted that this was something that happens in one country or another and we get to see it nine times before lunch.  Are you suggesting that because we see it so often that we should not be concerned?

            Well I agree with you that the press sensationalizes so many things that it becomes background noise.  But when a country like Iran says it has successfully test fired a rocket that can reach distances long enough to reach another country's urban areas, people should pay attention; that kind of announcement isn't friendly PR.

                    Yeah, Europe talked to Iran for three years and all that happened was that Iran built and completed the nuclear reactors while saying that they don't have them.  Maybe it'll be different this time.

              Why would we expect Iran to be friendly when we are not friendly to Iran? They have precisely the same right to develop and own nuclear weapons as any other country. Israel is full of them. So is Qatar, except the arsenal there is in the US military base. Guess where it's aimed? (Hint - straight across the Gulf). Until warmongering fools stop playing God in other peoples' territories, nuclear proliferation will continue.

                    The 'policy' of constant threat of aggression has been a dismal failure. Maybe it would be a good idea at least to pay lip service to the possibility of starting to think about maybe someday considering the gradual introduction of intelligence into foreign affairs? Or is that too rash and sudden for you?

                Although it may appear otherwise I agree that Iran has the right to nuclear weapons, but it is a hard sell when the President is a holocaust denyer and once said he wanted to wipe Israel off the map. smile

                    Israel didn't annex territory, they won them.  And they tried to engage in serious talks and all they got was the runaround which was a pretext for Hamas and other terrorist organizations to build up their arms and then attack.

    The situation for Palestine is inhumane and should be the worlds shame.

      Why is it the world's shame?  Why didn't the Arabs take them in?  When Israel won the first time, all the jews were hounded out of Arab countries, even in areas that were traditionally jewish.  All those expatriate jews were taken in by Israel, why did the Arabs keep all those muslims who left Israel in camps?

      Living in the Gulf, I can confirm that almost everybody here is of the view that Israel's expansionism and continued blockade of Gaza continues to be the major problem. People here are generally friendly to the US, but are truly saddened and disappointed at their wholly unbalanced take on the Israel-Palestine issue.

          Of course I've considered that possibility. But I've considered it in the light of far more accurate information than what is pumped out in the American media. And having considered it, I've concluded that the US (especially the previous regime) were very inequitable in their approach.

                Frankly it's a bunch of bull.  The Arabs will make one story up after nother to continue to put roadblocks towards any success.  The Israelis had already offered them the territories and they refused.  They want the whole loaf they're not prepared to take only half.

    This the entire point of all religion isn't it?  War. Look at how we have been manipulated. LOL Sarah Palin would have been enough to get the anti-christ elected. lol

    Faith in God = Do nothing.

    Sheeple have been persuaded throughout history that putting their faith in god is the answer.

    This is how you keep them poor and downtrodden.

    This is just evolution in action. When the "final conflikt" all you Kristians are hoping will take you to heaven without the unbelievers and sneering mockers, maybe we can eventually see religion and an irrational belief in an invisible super being who gives you comfort after you are dead as the manipulative garbage is really is.

    The world is the same as it ever was. The only difference is more humans, so more conflict.

    We have fast travel and communications, so we hear about everything going on in the world that was hidden before.

    We have more understanding of psychotic and neurotic behaviour which means we recognize crimes that were not crimes like paedophilia, and other human rights and abuse issue that used to be ignored.
    We can also see the insanity in the bible and quoran that was obviously not "divinely inspired".
