Reader comment on item: "Death to America"
in response to reader comment: "To whom much is given much is required."

I agree with you, i have tried elle.......... but i cant seem to contradict you. I'm feeling rather lazy, i should be studying for my year eleven exams.... but what else does a teenage guy do in these situations...... certainly not study.

The only thing i disagree with is the "what good is history if we see it as an irrepresable past"?, with the good comes the bad, this is the foundation upon which our society is built... its how we think, something is either good or bad..... for example..... we title some people in the world to be saints, if we call someone a saint we have created a sinner.... now we have to go condemn someone out there as a sinner, because the saint can not be with out the sinner. They are both part of one interpretation. As is the good and bad in history.....

No, i didnt get what you were saying at first, but now that you have included the field of justice, all is well.

I guess i do find it hard to believe that america will bring democracy to Iraq, and if they do i will surely doubt its presence to be sustainable. But elle, that is my opinion, i do not believe it to be factual and i have come to respect yours and understand where you are coming from.

Submitting....
