What would it take for Russia to be #1?

civil wars are always nasty but where is the US-Iraqi war a civil matter?
Does ruthless tyrany become righteous when abroad?
Prehaps the Iraqis are viewed by some as squatters.
Anyway depleted uranium knows no difference between natives and foreigners so both are going to loose. The future
may well be an empty quarter except for oil wells and pipelines.
One can understand in a war between two military powers
of similar technological standing having to resort to the use of
depleted uranium at some critical stage but this was never the case in either war with Iraq, not even a time facter, since it has been draw out over a decade. Absent-mindedness cannot be accepted into the equation. It is basic for inplications to be included in military and political planning.
The Coalition forces look as expendable as the Iraqis.

America could be one of 2 continents, if you had in mind North America, could mean one of 3 countries; US. Canada and Mexico and I think they are different and not only in a weather pattern.
Similar situation is with Scandinavia; Sweden is country of neutrality, Norway is oil sheiks country, Iceland is US carrier.
Generalization means only misrepresentation.

I wouldn-t say that Goliath.
GIJOE; 100 000 US TROOPS TO BE IN IRAQ TILL 2006 THIS TIME UNCLE SAM lets dollars sink in sand.
''theres gold in that there sand son! IF IT TAKE US HOWEVER MANY BILLIONS TO SOLVE THAT IRAQI PROBLEM, THE IRAQI'S HAVE THE ABILITY AND POTENTIAL TO MAKE BILLIONS A DAY.
SO IN A FEW WEEKS THE WHOLE WAR EFFORT AND IT S UPKEEP WILL BE PAID BACK BY STOCKS UNDER OUR BASIC CONTROL.
THE IRAQI'S WILL PAY THE ENTIRE COST OF THE WAR, FINANCIALLY. AND IT STRANGE THAT YOU GUYS DID NOT SEE THAT COMING..... YOUR LOSIN IT BOYS, TWO JOHNNY COME LATLEY'S WHEN IT COMES TO INTERNATIONAL POLITICS....

The Iraqi heritage (natural resources) wont be just paying for the cost of the war, which has already been indicated months ago
by those who werent naive, but also milked by the voltures who are insiders with the Oil Cabal around Bush, the rebuilding of Iraq in compliance with the New World Order, reward corrupt Iraqi politicians who will run the country plus probably a tribute to add to that which the U.S. pays to the Zionist state of Israel.
Have you forgotten about the Fear excuse already GI Joe?
You have only considered the financial costs from the perspective of the ''winners'' you want everyone to join. There are other costs and others who will pay for the rest of their lives. Some of those, like GIs who served in Iraq under George's father have their own website which tells the story of their plight, wont display any bravado about the tragedy in the aftermath either.

Iraqis were never going to do that in the US,
You have already admitted a major reason the coalition is in Iraq-
plunder, not to prevent US citizens from getting done in
their towns and cities as what is happening in Iraq.
But there will be body bags back home in the US because many are going to die later from the depleted uranium and the mysterious illnesses from the cocktail of immunisations that is
already taking a big toll.
Dont fancy being parents of GIs who die for scavengers.

Now get this, and get it good.
for every American death from a terror attack, our nation will
take a thousand lives for every one of us killed or injured.
yes 1000 at least. Do the math Bader, kill a million of us, and we will make HIROSHIMA AND NAGASAKI LOOK LIKE A DAY IN THE PARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHO EVER YOU AND WHEREVER YOU ARE.......... TERRORIST AGAINST THE STARS AND STRIPES WILL PAY THE MIGHTIEST PRICE IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND. THIS IS NOT A THREAT, IT IS A PROMISE............ G I Joe on the point.....

contempt for a nation than to take out the leader as they did Jack Kennedy in public. The Warren Commission stank higher than an old fish market in the sweltering heat.
Commissioning holocausts across the world in revenge wont hurt
the criminals. ( Shades of Ruanda and Uganda )
Guess your main objective lately is to show Russia is more a number one nation than the US.
Does it look to you that Israel is starting to play the UE off against
the US? There appears to be a power struggle developing between the US and UE. Also NATO wont be controlled by the US much longer by the look of it.

then and only then would i believe their is a greater tie between the eu and us. I like you am appaled by illigal acts by high officials in my country. It is my fervent belief that these criminal acts will all come to the surface in a free nation.and we as a country will hopefully grow from this expierence, and attain and even better more free kind of democracy.
when all the people of all the nations of the world,have full say in how their nation is led. because most people on earth seak peace, that will be the day when their will be true peace on earth.

US Clinton activated Germany against Yugoslavia. It opens European eyes; US attacked European country using EU military as a colonial forces. In addition, US were spying on European satellite.
American invasion on Europe was the wake up call for all Europeans; depleted uranium bombs dropped on Yugoslavia, poisoned water and air in whole Europe. War on Yugoslavia became moment of splitting up. Velvet revolution. Ha, ha ha. Present is only preservation what already happened.

IT WAS NOT GREED THAT MADE AMERICA GIVE IT'S BLOOD IN WW1'
IT WAS NOT GREED THAT MADE AMERICA GIVE IT'S BLOOD AFTER 911.
AND IS WAS NOT GREED THAT AMERICANS ARE DYING FOR IN IRAQ AND AFGANISTAN.
YOU CAN NOT UNDERSTAND THAT IT IS FEAR FOR THE SECURITY OF ITS POPULATION.
FEAR FOR IT'S WAY OF LIFE.
FEAR FOR IT FREEDOM OF RELIGION.
FEAR FOR IT VERY EXISTANCE.
YOU MAY TAKE ISSUE WITH ALL OF THE ABOVE, BUT IT IS ALL COMPLETLY TRUE, AND IF IT WERE ALL TRUE,
WOULD YOU TAKE A DIFFERENT ATTITUTE TOWARDS THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT? NO YOU WOULD FIND SOME OTHER COCKAMAMIE REASON FOR JUSTIFYING YOUR HATRED OF OUR COUNTRIES LEADERSHIP.
YOU ARE VERY MUCH LIKE THOMAS IN THE BIBLE.
YOU DOUBT THE TRUTH EVEN WHEN IT IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE............ YOU DOUBT JUST TO DOUBT , AND YOU ARGUE FOR THE SAKE OF ARGUMENT. NOT FOR THE SAKE OF WHAT IS RIGHT WHAT IS TRUE WHAT IS GOOD.......

*** INTRODUCTION ***
Public education is notoriously resistant to reform. Reformers have seldom been able to overcome public and parental complacency or untangle the gridlock of elected officials, school boards, administrators, teachers, and outside interest groups. This article explores the problem, and argues that upgrading the schools in the worst-performing districts can do more than open a path to general reform. Because people who are satisfied with their own children's schools will become actively dissatisfied if children from lower socioeconomic strata threaten to out-compete their kids, improvements at the bottom can turn the very forces that have obstructed reforms into engines that advance them.
It is no secret that we are a highly stratified society, that job-eligibility is tightly linked to education, and that job-based disparity of incomes is greater in America than in any industrialized country. The schools' chronic inadequacy is tolerable so long as it does not threaten the correspondence between school quality and social stratum. The failure to move education is not due to active malice - no conspiracy is required to allow a status quo to continue. Only when the problem becomes acute, and raises a serious spectre of downward mobility, will it to be possible to build and sustain the impetus necessary to overcome the diffuse, massive, interconnected, behemoth of inertia. Once the threat is lodged, however, dissatisfaction will cascade up the social strata to drive improvements throughout the system.
**** THE ROUTE to REFORM ****
Most middle class parents don't want ghetto and trailer-park kids to be educated well enough to someday seriously compete with their own kids. If, and only if, this becomes a serious threat will they support major reforms. Improvements in the worst areas' schools, sufficient to upset the relative-quality balance, would create the threat, and thereby force improvements at all levels, in order to restore it. Programs which even partly accomplish this are therefore the lever with which to raise the quality of the entire enterprise.
The worst areas will be the most receptive to reform. This is the group with the most to gain, and the least to lose. Changes can be implemented in those areas, that are blocked in better-off areas merely by labeling them experimental. Teachers' organizations and the teacher-education establishment will tolerate initiatives in those areas, whose general adoption they fiercely oppose. Alternative certification, for example, would actually reduce their risk of being assigned to undesirable locations. Many sound reform ideas have been proven in pilot projects. In subsequent articles, I will detail some of my favorites, and explore how they might be combined.

something i pray does not happen in my grandchildrens lifetime..>
GI, Russia would #1 when it leads the quality of life indexes, which at the moment are led by Scandinavia and Canada.
One question, where you think America is #1?:confused:

terrorism, thanks to the US military, doesnt necessarily have much meaning, the movement of al qaeda is supposedly not related to any govt but inspite of govts and the situations the US create are more likely to attract 'terrorists' into those countries to fight the US and/or the quislings. On that score the US military can not stop that flow.
The fact still stands state terrorism breeds terrorists. If Israel and the US are causing terrorists to recruit in numerous Islamic countries, then talk of exports doesnt stand and the US military is not arresting the development of terrorism.>
Bader, only word to say: AMEN!

I wonder if Sadam would have approved of you posting this if you were referencing human rights in Iraq. Freedom must be paid for. Evil does exist.>
Saddam would have felt alluded to by the word "lion," I'm sure...
Notice I say "No Lion No Problem!"
True, Evil does exist but so are Greed, Power Struggles and Vested Interests...
