This thread is to discuss war and music with themes on the subject like Rage Against the Machine, or System of a Down. This IS a political thread so feel free to be as opinionated as you want.

I guess I'll start: War sux and the only reason half of them are fought is over money! Most political leaders like Bush use dumb things like "Liberation!" and "WMDs" as excuses! It's absolutely ridiculous.

the two reasons for war in the world:

money and religion.

War is wrong, I can't believe that we are the dominant species on this planet, yet we act so barbaric. Animals don't have war, they only kill for food or safety.

well, you know, Bush is an idiot who wouldn't have gotten APPOINTED, NOT ELECTED in the first place if his brother hadn't rigged the election.

The fact that other countries label Americans by Bush sickens me. Because very few of us are actually like that.

Your a mis-informed conspiracy theorist. Believe it or not, war's are fought because our country are either threatened by another country, being invaded by another country or fighting a war on another countries behalf.
But oh noez, teh war in Iraq! Wait, maybe the country was actually being run by a dictator who was a bad man, maybe the cost of the war exceeds any profits that oil will make the government, but that means you don't have a reason to be a rebel anymore.

I think One wouldve been a better example.


**disposable heros from the governments point of view :O

Go 'tallica!

anyway, yeah its pointless. the government spends money to send our troops over to afghan or wherever to die because george bush doesn't want to send the americans (canadian btw) or some ****. It's all about the oil in afghan and hes throwing away the troops.

15 years ago when Iraq invaded whatever small oil country, america had the chance to clean them up but pulled out and now we have this **** on our hands. Iraq should've been done with back then and maybe it'd be more peaceful now.

We'd better write some more thrash stuff to deal with war :P

PS: war sucks

I'm very pro-war and pro-military and I think I'm the only one on UG who is. I just believe in the ancient ideas of war; if they mess with you, beat the living **** out of them so they will FEAR YOU!

I'm not rich, I'm lower middle class and because of theat most of my family has joined the service. 2 grandfathers in WW2 (Infantry, Paratroopers), 1 great-uncle in Korea (Infantry), 4 uncles in Vietnam (MP, Infantry, Chopper), 3 cousins in Desert Storm (Infantry, tanks), 1 brother and 2 cousins in Iraq & Afghanistan (Paratrooper, Infantry). And I plan on enlisting after high school (I'm in JROTC now).

I could care less if you support the war, but DON'T EVER talk **** on our service men and women. They are just doing their job for their country and to protect their families.

War fuels economy. Creates jobs, kills off people (As grim as it sounds. Rest in peace) . Yes, our economy is **** right now. But remember, the economy is based on a flux. We're in a recession, but we'll spring out of it in a year or two.

I believe in ANCIENT war and ancient war only. I say we should get rid of guns and bombs and planes and stuff and go back to sword fighting. Anybody can blow someones head off but it takes skill to sword fight. And the death tolls would be so much less. Yes, medieval warfare is the way to go.

Maybe I'm just a flaming liberal, but a "job" based on killing people on someone else's orders seems pretty despicable to me. And protecting their families from what? Saddam Hussain's massive ( ) nuclear stockpile? Teh evil "terrorists"?

angus is god, you are one of the few on this thread that are making any sense right now.


And to Mr. Anarchy, are you aware that anarchy is virtually non-existent? Do you know how many people say they are anarchists? Everyone who says that just says that because they disagree with something in the government, but they can't think of any way to fix it, so they say establishment is bad. Then, they go further in the depths of pathetic ignorance to support ways of life that are pro-establishment and decidedly anti-anarchist.

If you were an anarchist, I doubt you would be on the internet.

Do I hate war? Yes. But that's just ignorant. Take away armed forces, and you wouldn't be here. Any country would jump on the bait to take over this gigantic piece of land. We have a lot of resources here (that's why we are a world power). I don't think anyone actually enjoys war. I'm a hippie to the extreme, but not supporting our armed forces is wrong, imo.

The previous win you earned with the lyrics just died a fiery death.
Without trained warriors who would stop any invasions from other countries?
And you can bet your ass there'd be invasions. America is a big chunk of land. Plenty of nicely-built cities with only a few chubby pencil pushers to hold the fort

Who ever said they had to kill? What about the cooks, mechanics, MP's, ect? 80% of all service personel never get close to the frontline, they are either working on the bases or working in the States.

Yes they are protecting us from terrorists because guess what? can your mind handle this? They would be home if the terrorists weren't attacking Iraqi CIVILLIANS!
