    It is absolutely outrageous to me that there are entire societies held captive by the small handfull who wish
    to impose their sadistic will;

    (Former)Sadam Husien's Iraq
    Kim Jong II's North Korea
    et al

    Should we fight every one of them?





    Answer.....YES

    This may be a simplistic and pessimistic view of history. But, I think people as a whole (anywhere) are basically sheep looking for shepherds. Unfortunately, some shepherds turn out to be wolves leading their sheep to the slaughterhouse. And unfortunately, some sheep are willing to allow this as long as the trip to the slaughterhouse is a reasonably comfortable trip.

    Most people in North Korea do not think of their ruler as a god, they are too busy looking for their next meal.


    If only one small corner of our world is denied it's basic freedoms & needs we all are worse off.

    At what point do civilized peoples intervene?
    At what point do we justify going to war?
    Is war justified?

    Sometimes war is necessary, but it is a failing on our part.

    We live in dangerous times..still

    So how about we start with Africa then? Around 24,000 people a day die of hunger. It's unfortunate that they've been "lost" amongst all these "human rights" dramas.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Very true(of Africa), so what do we do when despotic governments use and abuse UN shipments of food for their own political goals/agendas?

    Do we go to war alittle or alot?
    (lol).

    Or do we simply ask them to stop.

    The trouble with goverment (and I mean governments everywhere) is that there is too much politics.

    If we are to get involved with Africa it would require the efforts of the whole world.

    whether they are starving or not thats how theyve been brought up, they see him everywhere. if he wants to nuke us theres nothing to stop him,
    so if people like you provoke him he will

    I think you´ll find that it´s the Shepherd that would take the sheep to the slaughterhouse.

    The wolf is more likely to do what it wants there and then.
