Ianus , there is a technomatic question here
Submitted by Harrak (Canada), Jan 23, 2006 at 16:44Ianus , my friend, from your reply I felt that you were in the defensive with no offensive to be based on. I invite you to kindly pass your message with more intellect than the heart. I am really not into emotional give and take.
I, however, want to answer one point in your whole comment that provoked an answer. when you said: "Can you... ? America has been founded by Christians as a Christian country so your question seems pointless. As such it has achieved much. If you want to ruin America and change it into a Third World country the surest way is to make it a Muslim country. ."
I actually meant the question if all Christian -not just USA- want the rest of the world -not just the west- to become Christians..see, very simple.
What you did my friend is that you fabricated a question -adopted your own interpretation of my points- and answered yourself. In the studies of logic, that is called the cross-circled parralelism. It is simple in a way that when a person takes a line of ideas in parralel to an other oposite line of ideas and tries to mix them, they refuse and separate from each other forming a circle on each end. At the end in stead of having two parrale lines of ideas we end up with two circles of ideas that make an end to both lines...
Regarding flattering Dr pipes, no, I mean what I said. He is more qualified to lead a country that has a vital and crucial interest in the Middle East. Yes the Middle East is the future of the states and people like Dr Pipes are those who must be in charge for the following reason:
-USA is losing Latin america and the left anti-americanism trend is swallowing the political life there.
-Canada is going more and more towards Asian option especially after the soft wood lumber problem where the USA did not abide by the arbitration ruling.
-The French dominated EU is not a good market neither to get the resourses from, nor to export the most profitable doods to (here I mean the real Military Idustrial Complex exports and not bananas..)
So the middle east is the future of the USA. people in charge must be like Dr pipes. the inteligentsia is the power of surviving not the Zoromania performed by G.W. Bush. "let s smoke them out.." what a shame to express ones self that way..I do not think Dr Pipes has manners like that derived from Cartoons dream land.
thank you very much
