I never knew Iraq was a band... (ducks)

Really, though, does ANYONE expect MTV to be a bastion of journalistic depth? (shrug)

" ... the root causes (of terrorism) are even more difficult to tackle then the symptoms of it. To wield the big stick and strike here and there and have big surveillance of telephones or whatnot, that can be done, but to get at the social conditions better democracy, more education in the Middle East, giving the hope for the many youngsters in that part of the world now that's harder. Look at the Palestinians with the huge, huge percentage of unemployed. What does that breed? Anyone who's unemployed in the world, you feel there's no meaning and there's a risk that you drift over to something desperate. Yes, we have to tackle the social problems as well."

A very intelligent and well-reasoned position. If the West would really help Middle East and Third World poverty, unemployment, and poor health care, we could at least begin to win the hearts and minds of those people, and show we have a good society.

I wonder why that hasn't been tried yet?

It has been, we give Egypt 2 billion dollars in aid per year, and over 70% think of us in a negative light. We have economic problems here at home, the idea that we should be giving welfare to people that hate us in other countries is not a good one. Are we really supposed to help people that want to kill us?

Anyways, the idea that Blix views Global Warming as a more ominous issue than world conflict is quite scary, and quite telling.

Looks quickly at the knee I injured after falling on ice and ponder 1 thought: Where the Fuck is this Global Warming people keep talking about?



If it wasn't for war, you wouldn't know what peace was.

It's more accurately called global climate change. And the 1990s were the hottest decade on record, 1997 was the hottest year on record. The fact global climate change is occuring is pretty much apparent to anyone with an inkling of scientific knowledge. The real issue is whether people are causing it, or whether it's a natural process.

Uh....this afterall was the coldest winter in Baltimore in over a decade and the second snowiest ever.

Regardless of those numbers, we do not know if we are warming nor will we know consideriong that our most reliable records go back less than 200 years. Remember, as late ast he 1970's scientists though the ice age was coming...

Because, unlike the chickenhawks he portrays in this strip, he's not one of those who thinks "waging war on the Islamofascists" is a good idea?
