    Acturally better yet, I have a solution which going back even farther but better. The cause of most anti-americanism in the middle east is caused by Jeruselem and us leaving Afiganistan after they rebelled against the USSR. So I just go back and have the US join WW2 early, preferbly before Russia got involved. The other thing is I would stop the creation of Jeruselem after WW2. This would stop both causes of anti-american views and greatly reduce terrorism, infact the first terrist act was about Juruselem and as such I would prevent terriorism all together.

    Think about this:

    If someone went back into time then everything that they were doing would be altering the past and the future simultaneously. Therefore, if someone were to go back into the past they would've been, obviously, in the past rather than in the future... so if they weren't in the future in order to go back into the past how could they be in the past in the first place? Either, A: They would vanish from existence; or B: They could not go into the past at all; or C: They would be in a completely different reality all together.

    I would bet with B. But what if an infinite amount of realities do exist, where an infinite amount of actions/combinations occur? Then, theoretically, no two realities could be the same. So then, if you did go in to the past, and you changed something... then maybe you just actually inserted yourself into a different reality rather than changing the one that you were already in.

    The problem with wanting something is the fear of losing it, or never having it. The thought makes you weak.

    this is such a bull$$$$ post because even if you could go back in time and stop something from being invented, someone would go and invent it a week later. You're talking about stoping tsunamis with water pistols.
