  1. I thought I saw the shift in french foreign policies. The sift from Chirac's France relative Palestine sympathizer to more anti-arabic and pro US france of Sarkozy's. Then the explanations begin to surface: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article18664.htm It's almost as nice as Dick Cheney being former president of Trilateral Commission or something and not telling it prior campaining. Treason. -v
  2. ElBaradei claims that he and his team cannot find evidence about Iran developing nukes, as he and Hans Blixt couldn't find them on Iraq years ago. France, Israel and US however claims that Iran is going for nuke, and they got certain intelligence on that, just like they did with Saddam. What is your opinion? I don't care, because Iran has every right to make nuke if it chooses to. Most "experts" seem to think that if Iran gets nukes, it destabilizes the middle-east / persia region, but that contradicts, because Israel is currently only confirmed nuke power on the region. -v
  3. Yay, Ron Paul seems to have some sense, for a US presidency candidate at least. -v
  4. EDIT - lol. You can make Iraq even safer if you divide the death roll with whole duration of the war. Even more reason to pull out! -v
  5. I decided to post this topic, because I wanted to see if people have any personal experiences of climate change. If you are interested, please post your comments or perceptions about your local climate change, so we can perhaps see, if there's climate change at all... I'll post mine tho.. It has been quite obvious here where I live. Winters have become lot warmer and summers even more hot. We used to have snowy winters, that usually started around october - november, but now its half way december and no snow. This not first year when the beginning of winter has been late. Absence of frost is causing some problems that we're perhaps overlooked earlier. When the water doesen't freeze as it used to, it causes flooding. Southern Sweden is now having severe flooding, and there are signs of that in here too. Water levels are nearly high enough to be considered flooding. If the frost won't come, and the rain instead keeps coming, many people will suffer from flooding. In Finland, lot of terrain are nearly at sea level or just above, that considerable rise in sea level will cause a lot of trouble. If this heating continues year by year, it'll take only some 10 - 20 years when we'll have quite a different atmosphere here in scandinavia.. I still remember the frosty winters of my youth, and it really has changed in 10 years. I'm not saying which causes climate change, and I'm hoping that this thread will not become one of those with furious depates about some irrelevant issue, but rather to keep this so that people will only post their real experiences about climate change if theres any. thanks, -v
  6. O well, I guess that the DU was bad example of dangerous modern weaponry. I still think that it may cause surprising health and ecological effects. Nevertheless, it was just one examble, while fact remains that modern warfare is way more lethal, both to people and enviroment. -v
  7. Updating your PC is a vicious circle :/ But yeah, its the way to game I think. -v
  8. Ok, maybe I gotta learn to write, for this is possible the reason why you freaked out Jag: quote:Originally posted by Voli0: You can't claim that in such certainty. What if it leaches into water supplies? In the areas where they've been used a lot, it is a real threat. -v But it is supposed to be an answer for this: quote:Originally posted by Jaguar: Depleted Uranium causes absolutely NO long term impact, and whoever told you that it did is full of it and lied to you. Let me clarify the 1st quote, it should read something like these instead: You can't claim that in such certainty(that DU doesent cause long term health effects). What if it leaches into water supplies? In the areas where they've been used a lot, (leaching in water supplies) is a real threat. I hope that would clarify things up for a bit. -v
  9. quote:Originally posted by Jaguar: To freak out about a little bit of radioactivity is stupid, ignorant, and outright ridiculous. As I said, DU is dangerous if ingested for it's heavy metal properties, NOT radioactivity. There is more radioactivity in your own house, coming from your own monitor, then there is from DU. To claim that DU is dangerous radioactivel is ignorance at it's best. It's radioactive, so it must be dangerous, get a grip on reality. [/QB]Shut up man. Look who took it as an issue. I barely mentioned it when referring to modern warfare and you started to freak out about it! You should get a grip of reality, as you like to say. I never even mentioned it radioactivity, did I?? No matter what, I still doubt that you would give your awesome DU bullet to your kids for them to play with it. Read other people post dude, or I begin to wonder whether you are able to read at all. I NEVER MENTIONED RADIOACTIVITY BEFORE THIS POST. -v PS. I hope you can read this thread carefully through again.. Skimming through obviously is not working for you, as you cannot regonize the points out of the text.
  10. What makes you so sure that it doesen't leach? What about the children living in the areas where DU has been used? They are greatly in danger to get it in their system if they play in the area. And what about your own soldiers that were exposed to it during the desert storm? Yes, they had to get exposed to DU from the fragments of friendly fire and they're still having higher uranium amounts in their urea, and they've been reporting strange symptoms. Even it may not be deadly, but it certainly doesen't positively contribute on one's health. If you're claiming that it is safe, then give a DU bullet to your kids to play.. what the hell, its not even dangerous. -v
  11. You can't claim that in such certainty. What if it leaches into water supplies? In the areas where they've been used a lot, it is a real threat. -v
  12. quote:Originally posted by Eclipse: Back to your point, adjusting the cost from WWII into todays dollars would provide an accurate comparison despite the different time periods. So, in a thin attempt to give relevancy to the previous, if WWII cost 3.6 trillion dollars and we, at most, have spent 600 billion dollars on Iraq, I would say that the cost is not nearly as great as WWII in roughly the same duration. So they are not comparable least in this aspect. War in Iraq is lot less expensive so far. But I think our little depate is on wrong tracks because of a slight misunderstanding. War in Iraq is not yet on the WW scale, but of course it could expand. What comes to the modern warfare, which is more devastating in many sense than WW2 weaponry was, there are many weapon developments that outrun older weaponry easily in capability to cause long term destruction. Like depleted uranium and many kind of biological and also other type of nuclear weaponry. You are right that many of are expansions or developments of WW2 warfare, but there are also some new addons in arsenal that WW2 armies didn't have, like helis. -v
  13. Jag, it was Israel that attacked Egypt first(because Egypt had banned Israeli ships from Straits of Tiran) , which started 6 day war. But I don't think that was the war in which LostInSpace referred to.. I think he meant the war right after Israel's independece was declared at 1948. -v
