    Interesting double standard. The biological and chemical weapons in Iraq can't be seen or found but they have a strong faith they're there.

    Ironic. They can't see what is all around them and at the same time believe in something that is nowhere to be found.

    Oh, so once all the protesters were kept away and the pro-USA people were allowed in close she comes to the conclusion that there are more pro-USA people?

    Lol

    whoever said that was an idiot. Peace, by definition IS the absence of war!

    The presence of justice, is the presence of justice.

    anyway back on topic, and in response g4 scott.

    Laura was obviously making this up as there really were not many people visibly supporting them from what I saw! I suppose thats what seperates Blair from Bush (and his wife) is that Blair freely admits that his decisions were not popular, the fact that Bush denies this is just Lame if you ask me!

    However, Blair's wife too is a couple of sandwiches short of a picnic.

    That's not my point. Too many people (like you), think that peace is just the absence of war. It is also:

    An agreement or a treaty to end hostilities.

    Freedom from quarrels and disagreement; harmonious relations.

    Public security and order.

    Inner contentment; serenity.



    Peace is not merely the absence of war. You can not be at war, and still not have peace, which is exactly how Iraq was before. Although there may be more hostilities between the US and small militant factions, the Iraqi people have more freedom, they are living more harmoniously, no religious minorities are being repressed by the government, and no ethnic minorities are getting gassed.
