    • @patriots_act : Yes, thats 1 argument. If u can barely lookafter urself why have 3,4,5+ kids & bring suffering to them? I believe its the parents fault!! If u cant afford 2 eat proper meals & its only u & ur wife doesn't it make sense not to bring life into the world if u cant support it/them? Like all those African Muslims who have 5+ children & 2+ wives.. they barely have much food but breed like cockroaches & blame every1 else for their suffering!! Go figure?

  • Hopefully Spain will remove its token force that the US bullied them into sending before 2014 so no more of their troops have to die for nothing.

  • that photo is manipulated is Kevin Carter saw the death of one baby and that is the very image that belies the tragic destiny, at least in part, as the creature of the picture in his right hand carried a plastic bracelet of the season UN food. A Carter was criticized for not helping the baby and the world left him for dead though Carter himself was not killed, just shot the picture and left. 14 years later, in 2007, a team of journalists traveled to the scene and managed to find that little surv More..

  • 1º well who cares if he is dead, when he signed the contract with the army he assumed the risk that he could die. At least he died doing what he likes.

    2º there is no interest to "feed the world" alot of genocides ocurred in africa and no1 cares. Yet they care more about lybia/iraq/afganistan. Is all about oil, so no oil no interest. Today we can se clearly that Cold War never ended, today we live a "economical cold war" and RUSSIA/China is wining, and USA/Nato trying to g More..

    • @S0D

      Excellent !!!

      These NATO soldiers died without honor !!

      They entered on their army just because they needed a job, a career. They fighted for their payment money ... just this.
      They died as mercenaries ... They ignored the reason of the war, and accepted it.


      About these wars.
      The reason is Oil ... Its so obvious.
      Another example is North Korea .... The USA before the criminal war against Iraq have claimed a lot of fake proofs that Iraq haved WMD .... meanwhile, in the same time, More..

    • @S0D Also they won't attack because our Joint Chiefs in the military say its impossible to invade Iran and be victorious.
      Also if we attack Iran we would have to deal with Iraq which is now controlled by the shia thanks to the US.
      And we won't touch syria because Iran has their back, and syria has a very good military, nothing like libya.
