Lisa the Congenial: nahh... listen.. how about you come visit lebanon next summer (if there is no war in the area of course hehe)
Lisa the Congenial: i promise it would be the best holiday you ever had
charlie the wild: and a plane ticket lisa *giggle*
Gadget the Magpie: sometimes i wonder how can prayer work when others r praying that their latest war plan works ...
Mike the NAFOD: Lisa, that''s the only time the Army sends me anyplace
Lisa the Congenial: hah... we have UN troups here
Lisa the Congenial: would they be considered army?
Mike the NAFOD: Heck, now they are saying I''m even too old for that! lol
charlie the wild: yer gadget god must get a headache
Mike the NAFOD: some of our troops serve with the UN
Gadget the Magpie: lol charlie
Lisa the Congenial: @ gadget: the problem is that most leaders view war as a survival tool
Gadget the Magpie: agreed]
Lisa the Congenial: yupp mike
Mike the NAFOD: I say, throw the leaders in a room for a "steel cage match" and call it a day!
Lisa the Congenial: but i doubt we have them here..
charlie the wild: lol that''s the best idea mike
Lisa the Congenial: we have italians.. africans (dunno which nationalities though)...
Rhonda the Astute: lol-I''m with Mike
Lisa the Congenial: YEY for you mike!
Lisa the Congenial: hehe
Canusa the resident above the 49th: I like it too. who do we talk to to make it happen
charlie the wild: l vote mike for head of the world!
Mike the NAFOD: LOL, as long as I don''t drive, we might be safe!?
charlie the wild: hahahahaha
Lisa the Congenial: lool... there''s a singer here who made a new song "we all deserve to burn" (it''s about how we follow stupid politicians instead of working for the best of our country)
Canusa the resident above the 49th: absolute power corrupts absolutely
Lisa the Congenial: loooooooooooooooooooooooooooool
Zury the Enchanter1: lol mike
charlie the wild: wow and the singer gets away with that song! coool!
Lisa the Congenial: mike, when you get to the head of the world... would you send me a million $??? (see am not greedy!) hehe
Rhonda the Astute: lol- at least Mike should be in charge of the war efforts and diplomacy since there apparently is none in the current leaders- we need to ask the actual soldiers what needs to be done to end the war - not the leaders
Mike the NAFOD: LOL
Lisa the Congenial: yeaaaaay.. he''s a very respected singer... the song is very nice... (translated to english it may seem trashy hehe..)
charlie the wild: lol lisa
Lisa the Congenial: you''re absolutely right rhonda!
charlie the wild: cool!
Mishu the Socially Retarded: Asking the soldiers might be just as dangerous.
charlie the wild: lol
charlie the wild: agreed rhonda
Lisa the Congenial: as my dad would say "the person counting the bombs is much different than the one taking them over his head"
Mishu the Socially Retarded: I''m pretty sure enough time in a warzone wouldn''t make people neccesarily puppies and kittens about who they happen to be fighting.
Ezzy the Earnest: Hello folks
Rhonda the Astute: they see what is really going on -, though and are genuinely compassionate human beings (at least the ones i know)
Mike the NAFOD: Hi Mishu, General MacArthur said it best "A Soldier prays for Peace above all things"
Rhonda the Astute: hi Ezzy
Rhonda the Astute: agreed Mike
Lisa the Congenial: soldiers are truly dedicated people and good at heart.... it''s not their fault if they have to follow bad orders sometimes
Rhonda the Astute: my son was a soldier and i know that is how he felt
Angie: i read sth like this: the amount of dead & wounded ppl is just some statistical numbers - a real person dying before your eyes is a reality
Mishu the Socially Retarded: I support soldiers, but at the same time, I''ve heard too many of them talk about turning the middle east into glass to attain peace.
Lisa the Congenial: yes exactly
Mishu the Socially Retarded: I think they have a different understanding of conflict and the price of war, no doubt. But their solution set, by definition, is different than a lay person''s.
Lisa the Congenial: the middle east is the heart of all the problems in the world
Mishu the Socially Retarded: So you''re endorsing the idea of turning it into glass?
Mishu the Socially Retarded: It''s also the birth of civilization.
Lisa the Congenial: because it''s too rich.. has too many different religions... and too many races
Lisa the Congenial: did you know that Lebanon is the only democracy in the middle east?
Mishu the Socially Retarded: Makes sense. But where are you going with that?
Lisa the Congenial: there has to be a radical change in order to reach a definitive solution over here
Lisa the Congenial: because it''s clear that the way it is now, nothing is stable
spot the Ingenious: um, guys-this is turning too close to political discussion that can be problematic
Lisa the Congenial: and things are always leaning towards war
Gadget the Magpie: Lisa, Says your government ... according to them we are the problem
Lisa the Congenial: spot can i answer gadget then stop the conversation?
