Politics

People who follow and debate politics essentially are following a "team game," and attach themselves (more or less) to a team or individual, then watch and discuss what they're doing, normally in terms of whether the policies and believes are "good" or "bad."

The sick thing is the real word implications of all those decisions and how it affects so many people, and how virtually any decision is bound to affect some people in negative ways. In many ways, following and discussing the war in Iraq is like watching and cheering gladiator fights of old. And those of us on the couch or in front of the monitor aren't the ones getting hurt, either.

I'd just like to point out that there is no "war" in Iraq. It is an "occupation" which started after an illegal invasion. Big difference.

And most of the world knew what the results would be before this disaster took place. The only people fooled was the American population.

I also believe there is an occupation. But it's not the only thing going on. I think it's important we use the word occupation, but not to exclude the use of the word war.

I suggest using "occupation" and not "war" because the American mercenaries and military do not need to be there.

They are occupying this land chiefly because of oil. And if you insist on using the term "war", then I would suggest using the modifier "illegal".
