    the e-mail address though, which was a unicwash.org address. See here for details:

    Shame they haven't changed the first 165 names on the list though...

    You can jump up and down and yell and scream about this all you want, Shaun, but come hell or high

    too many cattle from the GOP (God's Own Party) are following along with the blinders on.

    Right. Although I was highly dubious, since the media hadn't mentioned it, I still wanted to add my
    name to that list. I just like the feeling of doing it, and would like to hope someone could make
    positive use of such a list ',;~}

    Consider this as a good time to cancel those plans to ride with the Kurds on some great mountainous

    DEFENSE ADVISORY: In case of chemical, biological, nuclear or conventional attack, wrap petition
    around your face as a mask, hold hands in a big circle, and sing Koombaya.

    The US and the UK invading a country without a motive or support of the UN.

    When Germany invaded Poland, and Iraq invaded Kuwait without provocation, many countries went to
    defend them. Wonder who will come to the defence of Iraq if they're invaded without provocation...

    If the US and the UK do invade, they'll be fighting their own terrorist war for years to come. And
    they won't win.

    You seem to be using the term "peace lover" as a pejorative.

    Ah, yes - subtle demeaning commentary. Very effective logic skill.

    Tell you what - how about showing SOME justification? Anything at all...

    Desert Storm has not officially ended. There is a standing cease-fire, based upon Iraq's (Saddam's)
    compliance with UN resolutions. He hasn't.

    Is this the same petition that circulated back in 1998 when Clinton was bombing Iraq? Where was the

    When Clinton bombs Iraq, it's justified. If Bush bombs Iraq, it's about oil and world domination.

    Fair point. But two wrongs don't make a right. And anyway, the goalposts have totally moved since
    9/11. Surely we (US & UK - I'm a Brit) should recognise that blowing the crap out of a load of
    innocent Iraqis is not the solution to Bush's 'War on Terror' bullshit. He's an idiot, and so is the
    poodle Blair trotting along in his shadow. The scariest thing is that people like this are able to
    run our world... "Tristan" <[email protected]> wrote in message
