Oprah wants to know what our opinions are on the upcoming war with Iraq. The Lefties have this link posted all over their web sites so I thought we should add our two cents.

This is hopeless...besides the questions are totally skewed to result in an anti-war, pro-UN outcome.

Notice the wording of the military force questions:

"Use military force without U.N. or coalition support.

"Use military force, but only with U.N. and coalition support

What if we had a coalition of say 40 or 50 countries but not a U.N. security council resolution?

Have your heard about Adolf Hitler marching troops across the Polish border earlier this week? Yes 94% No 3% Dont Know 3%

Do you think this is a threat to world peace and particularly the freedom of Europe? Yes 87% No 10% Dont know 3%

Do you think the nations of the world should prevent further territorial grab by Hitler, unite, and forcebly remove his troops from Germany? Yes 12% No 87% Dont Know 1%

You were right, these people are dumbasses. Why poll people when they don't even have any regard for their own safety or existence, and would change their viewpoint on issues due to their patent ignorance, every 20 minutes? Useless.

My sense of many Americans' reservations over military action is that they are afraid of terrorist reprisals, sort of like the woman who feels that her husband won't beat her again if she just doesn't p*** him off.

Voted. ...I think that this one is a lost cause after looking at the way they are voting. Interesting about the gender break down it seems to hold fast through the entire poll.

REMINDER: Apparently you can vote multiple times. Try taking the poll, hit SUBMIT...then a series of BACK, ENTER, BACK, ENTER, BACK ENTER....lets you vote multiple times for about 10 - 20 times...then you must hit SUBMIT again, then repeat BACK, ENTER, ETC....

There we go again the bible says, because of this nations are at war about what their bible says. The bible makes heros out of people that win wars! The bible says Israel is god's chosen. the bible says Armegedon is coming when the nation stand up against Israel. The bible says god will reign over the world from Jerusalem. Who gave the world this bible to study and live by? The same Israel and the western world is caught in this grip and playing the scene as faithfull servants to the same people and scriptures as they expected them to. Then the muslims have their bible which basicaly teaches the same exept they want to be the chosen nation and will fight for their right and kill and die for their rights. It is a hoax and the non believers and the innocent children is caught in this battle of gods. Please wake up the human has become enlightened and you should too.


Get over yourselves.

Don't get me wrong, I understand the pain that was inflicted on the United States, but noone down there seems to get that similar acts of terror have occurred all over the world, many times. Afghanistan was destroyed, and your papers didn't cover it, you didn't cry for Afghanistan's people. Now your country is bombed, and the world sobbed. Don't use your pain as an excuse to cause the same in other nations.



yikes...I don't think a poll is going to help much.
