Devizes Melting Pot

“Protection. Conservation. Restriction. Deep ecology. Give me deep technology any day. They don't scare me. "I'm damned if I'll crawl, my children's children crawl on the earth in some kind a fuckin' harmony with the environment. Yeah, till the next ice age or the next asteroid impact." (Moh Kohn, The Star Fraction)/ "This is the fight between God and the Devil. If His Grace is with God, he must join me, if he is for the Devil he must fight me. There is no third way" King Gustavus Adolphus

Heya all,

Newbie blogger here!

Few introductions bout myself

Pets - 1 Red Burmese cat - Dieter (did hav 2, but the blue burmses Max passes away a few weeks ago)

My stance on the war: Did not support it mainly because the intentions were less than hourable not to mention being cynical of the whole operaration. Iraq was not a major threat to the west, in fact it barely registered in people's minds, so why attack it now?

America made 2 tatical mistakes in Iraq - 1) they disbanded the army, which is a real bad thing to do since you don't want unpaid, hungry, well armed men running amok and 2) Destroying whatever little infrastucture Iraq had left (even the Romans did not destroy they conqured terroity infrastrutre - these 2 mistakes have made Iraq a quagmire.

well thats just a shot introduction, will hope to post more.
