Re: Future of the Interent Sure...lyls... lets have .dk land control it... or maybe yourself... or what... someone who really understands how to exploit the poor, down trodden, Iraqui citizen?
Which part of this do you not understand? Is it the part which happens when you go to the gas pump and fill up your Mercedes, or is it the part which happens when you pay the Kerosene guy the monthly payment for your few hundred gallons of fuel you use to heat your house? Which part is hard for you to figure out, there lyls...
Once a kid wearing leather sneakers made fun of my "Snakes", I said, "... and which life was given for the leather in those shoes?"
lyls, It takes an educated, experienced, mind to judge others... I'm fifty two, and I'm not ready yet.

Re: Future of the Interent
said by lyls:Good for you. It is the price of Natural gas from Oklahoma which ensures that the price of north sea gas remains low enough for you to live with... Oklahoma is in the US.
i dont have a car and my APARTMENT is heated by natural gas which comes from our own oil fields out in the north sea
Lyls, reality check, dude. I've heard so much whining and US bashing from so many people across the pond that it makes me want to puke. Wanna sincere answer why? No? Too bad you're gonna get one anyway.
My step father fought in WWII. My wife's father is a Pearl Harbor veteran. My father fought in Korea. My step father's brothers fought in WWII. My wife's fahter's brothers were "Jedbirds" in the Netherlands during WWII. I am truly sick and tired of hearing about how my country sucks from people who owe their VERY EXISTANCE and FREEDOM to MY COUNTRY. You CHILDREN so easily forget just who came to your lands and just who by GOD gave their fathers and sons to die for YOU.... so that YOU could be free... so that YOU could be a first world nation and not a third world nation... It is easy to forget who bought tomorrow with their blood...
You fail to remember that the ENGLISH speaking defeated Nazism, that the ENGLISH speaking defeated Spain and Italy. You fail to remember that it was Aussie, English, New Zealander, and American blood that was spilled to ensure that Japan surrendered and that it was the very same nations who rebuilt those nations and helped them to become powerful countries, countries which are LOVED by Americans today. We forgive and we forget, idiots and children are not capable of doing the same.
I'm sorry, but I really have to ask you and anyone as short sighted as yourself, WHO THE F**K DO YOU THINK YOU ARE, questioning OUR motives, anyway?
We have already PROVEN our motives... where are your's and Kofi's, eh?

Re: Future of the Interent Loving doesn't mean being blind, or that one should refrain from telling you another side of the story, fearing that "you" might treat him/her (i.e. country) with the typical arrogance displayed this past year.
A quick note on "Arrogance": This is the message I got from many Americans over my 16 years of living in your country.
1- "Yeah! You French people hate Americans" (Where did that come from?)
2- "French people are so Arrogant" (Then we should get along)
3- Place your own
The French, Danes etc did NOT forget about the sacrifice you made, nor do we hate Americans. You keep bringing back the blood spilled over our coasts as your carte-blanche to impose anything and everything upon us, the Old Continent, that the current administration wishes.
You (The US) got really pissed when France said they might use their Veto to oppose the war in Iraq. Yet, the US is the one country that actually most implemented their Veto at the UN. Why? Because the rest of your Allies interest wasn't your own, so instead of going along, you basically said F*** off to the rest of the world.
Now you can't accept that France had the balls to do the same... Oh well.
Europe isn't as big, as powerful as the US, so we have to think and act differently. We also are closer to the front-line and have been "suffering" whatever actions we, or you made in the Gulf region. Did any Americans actually felt for us when Europe was exposed to countless terrorists attacks after the Lebanon problems in 83'? Yet, when 911 happened, the first head of state to call Washington to offer his condolences and assistance (as little as it may seem to you) such as intelligence etc, was Jacques Chirac; then followed other Old Europeans head of state.
The US will act in their own interest.
Don't fool yourselves thinking that you act to bring freedom to a people that you describe as "Towel Heads" or else. Saddam Hussein was empowered by the CIA to counter Iran's expansion, when Iran was finally contained after millions of soldiers and civilians died, there was no need for Hussein anymore... It was well known that Hussein used unconventional weapons to kill its own people in those days, like the Kurds, that just didn't happen in the 90s. Did the Cavalry rushed to the rescue then? No. Halliburton could wait another decade after all.
To many of us, as countries, you look like a big brother that we looked up to, grew together with your help, and that now hit puberty, or fell in some kind of drug or alcohol addiction. We want to side up with you to a point, but no one in their right mind would accept to go along for a ride without thinking about the consequences first.
