pretend that the war does not exist nor should we
treat it as a TV-show.The fact that people are dying
due to a foolish reason and no justification(can you
justify any murder?) is very serious.How can people
stand indifferent in this? Of course we have seen many
miracles of the American
now Iraq2.The leaders of the U.S and G.Britain should
understand that they are not the world's democracy
enforcers.Although i doubt that U.S goal and motive is
to remove the cruel dictator S. Hussein because he
hurts his people.Oil and geopolitical balances in the
Middle East is the main reason.Take for example Turkey
or Israel.Can anyone count how manu UN Resolutions
have both these nations ignored? The Occupation of
Northern Cyprus is still continuing but the
"democratic" U.S certainly does not want to disappoint
its ally Turkey.And the same holds in many many other
situations all over the world.And you should think
which country's Media is most censored.The Americans
that have sattelite Tv's and watched European or
Arabian networks covering this awful war activities
and massive murder of innocent people ,could see the
great difference in the images.Most American citizens
did not watch the images of children dying in
hospital,the images of children having cut off their
legs or hands,the images of the bombardment of the
"Bagdad mall" where people were bying and selling
food.The "democratic" Americans cut off water supply
in Basra with 2 million civilians,in order to make
their surrender more easy.The "democratic" Americans
talked about the Geneva Treaty about the images of the
Americans captivated by Iraqi troops.But they forget
that the Americans were the first to show such
images.Isnt that HYPOCRICY? How can you stay
indifferent in such mass killings and such brutality.I
always thought that the United States of America was
the only land in the world that a person could stand
up totally free,where a person could feel "TOTAL
FREEDOM AND DEMOCRACY".
I dont believe this any more.I see that U.S is
gradually changing into a dictatorship.People's right
are everyday minimized inside the country.And outside
the country,the US Administration is acting like a
drunk policeman.It is nice to think that you are the

this war on this discussion list does not mean that we are ignoring it.
It just means that we have other forums by which we discuss those
off-topic topics. I have some strong and weak opinions myself and I
would love to discuss those and to hear others, but I don't want to
argue them here. If someone is willing to start a new group (one that
is private) on Yahoo for members of primenumbers to discuss the war,
then I would be more than willing to join and participate. That would
David and others a forum to state their opinions and it would also give
other members a choice as to whether or not they want to participate.

I recommend it to the readership in general.
Obprime: 109 is not only prime, it's the fourth member of a fairly dense constellation of primes.
