I just had a great little idea, it won't happen, but it would be amazing if it did.

With Russia now trigger happy after seeing their children slaughtered by terrorists the way they were, and a terrorist attack imminent on U.S. soil, wouldn't it be great if the world ACTUALLY came together to fight terrorism.

Instead of just the US bombing the **** out of Iraqis in some impearlist power grab, have Europe\China\America\Russia combine their powers and just TELL the middle east how its going to be.

i.e.
- democractic reforms madated
- human rights reforms mandated
- etc, etc

I realize that transforming an entire region takes time and a lot of resources. But the combined resources of all these powers, it would actually be cheaper than all the extra security measures we've got to take.

Its kind of idealistic, but I really think that if the civilized world stood under a united banner, one that IS NOT LED BY THE US but that is truly a united front, than succesful middle east reforms could take place.

You make me laugh!!!

You were the one posting the american flag burning antics and peace activist BS before but now you go ahead and introduce such an idiotic idealogy of peace by force as long as it isnt led by the USA? Then go ahead and preach a little more to have Russia and China be the activists in supporting USA and demanding the humanitarian treatment?

Kevin, it sounds like you are in favour of imperialism and the idea of preventitive strikes ("pre-emptive" implies that you can prove you were going to be attacked) as long as the US isn't doing it?
I can't help but think that maybe if Canada was in the "coalition of the willing" you would have a different attitude about Iraq?
