    The Current Affairs Thread

    This thread is designed to discuss current affairs, both domestic and international.

    Dreadful news to kick off, the Australian embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia has been bombed. JI is suspected of the attacks.

    I'm not too dissimilar a batsman to Bradman.
    Both of us have batting averages below 100.

    the only way we could give them nothing to fight about is by not being here

    hahaha nice one langeveldt. if we sat here doing nothing and buish didn't act we'd be fought anyway.

    We have to stand up for our freedom and our western beliefs and that's what they are doing. The way of life in these countries is crap... they persectue and cull their own

    If the Bush took a more mature attitude and did not retaliate, the Eastern countries would gradually respect the Americans more, they would have no reason to attack, and peace would prevail.

    In the current situation, America attacks the East, the East retaliate, them America fight back. It just goes around in circles with millions of innocent civilians being killed in the process. They are both as bad as eachother.

    yeah i agree they're both as bad as eachother... but they both have a burning resire to control the world and often it's cos of religious beliefs. and unfortunately it's very hard to stop these religious desires in peoples hearts.

    Fighting like this has been going on forever. it goes through peaks and troughs!!! it has nothing to do with bush as the individual!!!!

    And where did you get that from?

    And yet again, Craig attacks someone for disagreeing with him.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
