1. Perhaps unfair and unreasonable, but illogical i think not. We study history because history repeats itself, and what we do by studying history is extract judgements, we asses the people or minorities involved and we asses the actions they took in whatever was happening and finally the consequences, and come to think about it ,this leaves an impression. Have you ever heard the saying (from one of the sioux tribes) "we shall forever be remembered by the tracks we leave behind" ??.

2.No, it doesn't. The hundreds of thousands of people that died from that tsunami were also mothers, fathers and siblings and in too many cases, all but one family member died. Once the person is dead elle, it matters not how they died, all that matters is that they are dead. A life from America has with it no more value than a life from any third world country. When people hold on to what happened with a little bit of anger (and in some cases alot of anger), they do it for their own "benefits" not for that of the deceased, though i do agree that every one has good intentions........ what they are doing is wrong, for both themselves and the deceased. What i think is wrong is that they exploit the persons death and use it as an excuse to involve themselves in wars of hatred, deeply imbedded anger and revengeful quests....so its time america moves on from what happened, because this justified but somewhat unwarranted anger is getting you no-where.

3.Okay this point of yours i do agree with. Yes the people of Iraq do need help but all america is doing is prolonging the wait for that day when everything falls. I believe in fate and whats going to happen will happen and the only thing you can do is make the wait longer, perhaps the downfall of their country is not what fate has planned for Iraq but at the moment it looks like it is. Something you must accept is that people will die, in some horrible way it is what makes the world go round. Maybe it is gods way of cleansing the earth, or maybe not, i dont know. But i do know that it has to happem, and well..... it will.

4. Yes ok this maybe true, but the most idiotic of all of them, is the one with the most power. Mr George Bush is probably not americas best choice. And what puzzles me is that for him to get where he is, the majority of America had to vote for him..... 0_0.

5. cannot argue there....
