Well. I disagree about the long term survival part. Even if global warming causes the death of 3/4 of the human species it will still have a very healthy population.
Like that stupid Bush man stirring up trouble with Iran.
Iran shoots down U.S. drone.
Iran damages Saudi Arabia's oil facilities.
Iran mines international shipping.
Iran aids Hezbollah. Iran dedicated to the destruction of Israel.
Iran kills U.S. contractor.
Iran attacks U.S. embassy (again)
Meanwhile in Australia politicians still seem to be defending their pro-coal stance. It is estimated that so far 500 million animals have died in the bush fires there, and new fire warnings continue to be issued. All Australian states have been experiencing +40C temperatures and, apart from the fires, wild animals are also dying in numbers simply because of the high ambient temperature.What on earth does it take for some politicians to waken up to the facts and the gravity and urgency of the present situation.
Our pollies have been standing out in the sun too long.
The current minister of energy claim that Norwegian oil is a part of the CO2-solution! Believe it or not. I guess if you repeat a lie many times it become true.
If the mines are in international waters then just sweep them up
Isn't that a matter for the Saudis - they are not exactly defenceless
The Israelis bring a lot of that on themselves by their abominable treatment of the Palestinians. It may even be the root cause of the other issues
Close the embassy
Was the contractor doing military work? Or was he just collateral damage - which never seems to count when the US does it.
Referring to Replies #7 and #11I was trying to make the point that the USA perspective on the world is not the only valid one....R
