But now, apparently, we believe in human rights.
So why the war?
War is only declared when it is profitable. You think America would have attack Ireland if they mistreated their citizens?
It's a charade for modern-day pillaging, and the rich get richer while the poor get murdered by each other.


Oversimplification. Not every war is "terriotorial" nor declared for profit. As for Ireland, I find it interesting that you pick, of all countries, that one. I believe, if I were to quote another poster on this forum, it could be considered "racist" Rolling Eyes

Also, to defeat your final argument, "modern-day pillaging" is done with economic manipulation, not land wars and trenches. The rich don't necessarily get richer. I'm not even sure who you are referring to as "rich". I mean, nobody cut me a check for invading Iraq. Laughing

I did - did you not get it? Your share was $83.47. Don't spend it all at once.

Checked with the Wiff, she donated it to the Derek Zoolander's School For Kids Who Can't Read Good (and want to learn how to do other things good). I guess we need the deduction, but seriously, I think it is unfair to increase the scrutiney on our taxes if we declare over $500 in charitable giving.
