    it might just be the company i keep, but no matter who i talk to they seem to be mostly against the war. even on this message board majority seems to be anti-war. but all these news channels always talk about thier 60% for war and 40% against war polls and.. i just don't get it. i think they are starting to pull these numbers out of thier ass.

    i guess i just wanted something to complain about.

    the other day i read some figure (on fox i believe) that stated 78% of americans were glad we invaded iraq.
    i honestly think they must have just flat out made it up. i cant for a second believe it.

    the world is fucked, this is the end.

    but with polls you also have to take into consideration who actually took the poll. polls can never be accurate until everyone has answered the question. otherwise i can make 3 people i know will vote for the war vote and only 1 i know who doesn't want the war and boom, you got my statistics.

  9. I just recently became a member at the cigaraficionado.com forum, and it's unbelievable how different the bulk of opinion is among those older people than us younger ones. You know how this site has like 2-3 threads a day posting up some anti-war article, or simply anti-war rant? It's exactly the opposite there. Almost everyone is right wing, and there are a great deal of threads about support for the war and general disdain for those who don't. It's quite fucking aggravating to be honest.

    It became apparent to me that a lot of older people we don't talk to or deal with are in favor of this war. I'm not saying that forum is representative of older people in general, it's not even close, but to tell you the truth I'm not surprised and don't doubt for a second that the 60-40 divide is true. We just associate with people who are like-minded and therefore don't see this support for the war as much. Beer,

    Actually it has much more to do with selfish behavior

    1) They will never have to fight in a war so it becomes easy for them.

    2) Those that are veterans, though many are good men (I know a few), are sort of whitewashed and support wars blindly as if it's there duty not to speak out against any war no matter its purpose. That is the impact of the military on them, good soldiers and heros on their own merits but representitive of a collective of ideas and behaviors I can not support.

    3) People enjoy endulging there emotions, it feels good. That is why a lot of movies with heavily patriotic themes - other themes do apply - can make me feel good despite my political beleifs...until I reflect on WHY I feel good. The same goes for things like beef in graffiti - it makes sense to try to squash as much as you can to preserve your work but at the same time it feels better to go after people.

    4) I can sit down and discuss this war with people and keep an open mind, most pro-war people just cannot fathom hearing me out. This goes with many of the above points but reflects a closed minded sense of duty which is self reinforcing. If your ideas are strong and logical you would have no need to hold them up out of reach of anyone who does not believe as you. I find that these people are typically uninformed, or informed by major media outlets over their DIRECTV satellite dishes with very few voices of dissent.

    I think those polls are bullshit to make people feel comfortable with the war, kind of like "everyones for it, why arent you". Even if they are real polls, I bet they poll like 500 white republican businessmen from fucken orange county or another conservative area. But even besides that, It is pretty obvious that the general media has a very pro war agenda, same with their pro bush bullshit.Its pretty obvious when anti war protests are downplayed or outright ignored yet a dozen fools on a corner with USA flags gets a 10 minute story, I also love how they blur the stories about supporting our troops and being prowar, which are 2 seperate things. Not to mention the 99% of Bush and his cronies' actions are never covered(cutting veteran aid, their constant procorporation/antiworker behavior). Even the whole format of news and newscaster comments is too fucken sleazy to conceal their agenda. Most media corporations' parent companies are making big $$ off this war and their Bush/Cheney meat puppets.
