    War protesters are dumb, I'm not saying that they are protesting for a dumb reason. But, the actuall people are stupid, as in unintellegent.
    I'm against the war, and I consider myself far from stupid. I also know a lot of people that are against the war and not "unintellegent", as you say. Just because are not as quick to resort to violence does not make us dumb.

    OMG are you people just not getting it, he didnt say people who were against the war are stupid, he's saying that when they all get together w/their signs, banners etc. they become this big band of idiots...its not just war protesers its all mobs of people.

    Hubbard wrote Dianetics in like a period of a month, or so I've read, because he was broke and needed some money. There were studies done that showed that there are no healing powers associated with dianetics, and that's why the CoS dislikes psychs.

    edit: If I've offended any scienos, then good.

    ok, ok, so maybe he did(lol, damn you cheez 2x's in 1 day)...im just saying....i agree w/him, i dont think it's dumb to be against the war, it just seems when large groups of people get together to protest anything, it gets outta hand (not ALL the time, but i think more often then not)

    I just wanted to know what everybody else though of the fact that all we ever see of protests is anti-war, when over 70% of the U.S. is in favor of the war?
    Well considering the US is at war those 70% have nothing to protest about, except maybe to protest about anti-war protests lol. I mean we are at war, so why complain, they want war and they got it.

    I recently looked at the paper. I forget the exact percentages, but it was something like 71% of canadians agree with solving problems in Iraq with use of military action. But, then again, where exactly is this poll? I've never seen it. For all we know it was on the Heralds website and 10 people voted.

    snipped so it's right. If that's what was meant, then that distinction should have been made.

    i agree, large groups of people easily turn into angry mobs, but are you saying war protestors dont get out of hand? not saying that all of em do by any means....but if not in the recent past in the 60's-70's?

    I could tell you, but the Co$ has pretty powerful lawyers, therefore I cannot divulge the OT writings or the NOTS pack, even though the case of Wollershiem vs the Church of Scientology ruled that religious organizations cannot have trade secrets. As consolation enjoy some scientology fanfiction

    Over here we call it crowd fever. As many know, England has a problem with football hooligans. Large crowds of people go to a match and then cause huge riots, especially at away internationals. However, to say that they are all unintelligent is incorrect. It's very strange, to say the least, but many of them have been found to be smart, intelligent and respectable professionals or businessmen during the week. They go along to a game and the emotion and the crowd fever just sweeps them along and turns them into a different person. It's a very strange phenomenon.

    Govtcheez - that sentence actually has 3 spelling errors - moron.

    You do realize that even if those weapons were not there, we will find them anyway. We'll never know the truth. Our government will make it so the situation looks like whatever they want it to.


    Edit:
    Sean: You spelt "teror" wrong.

    Can I have a link please? I am not trying to be an argumentative arse. I just genuinely like to keep up-to-date and I don't want to trawl through all the news sites. BBC hasn't got the story yet.
