    Ian Millar's star, Big Ben, was most definitely a warmblood - i know most people will know that, but just in case there are a few young'uns who might not have heard of him.

    After some recent deaths in the States where athletes were actually consuming too much water, sports physiologists have adjusted their recommendations. It's obviously important to stay hydrated, but...

    Try Winnipeg. We don't just have a gaypride parade; we have a gay mayor, plus an NDP government that is going to the polls today and is poised to win in a landslide. So if liberal is to your taste,...

    Did someone say Fred has moved to the States? It can't be true, as her hubby is a pillar of the Canadian music scene! I

    ...it's Svengali, actually! and i believe the allusion is to an older person who tries to take complete control over a younger person's life, not in a sexual sense but in terms of moulding them into...

    you have enough troops on the ground so that both the miliary and humanitarian objectives are served - it's not an "either-or" situation.

    the hospitals would have been secured first and foremost, as the Geneva conventions (thanks, hobson, didn't know it was plural, lol). As it is, the main thing that has been secured to date is the oil...

    the fact is, securing hospitals and other vital services for civilians is a legal requirement of the Geneva convention. I somehow don't think the argument "the Iraqis are bad guys" as to why the...

    Love the not-written-by-John Cleese bit - too funny!

    I find it odd that no one on this thread has mentioned (or maybe i missed that page) that the coalition is in violation of the Geneva...

    Maybe that means she didn't show much "pizazz", as GM wanted, but she certainly was a pleasure to watch.ˇ

    Yes, I am pretty sure it was #3. So maybe it was more the contrast with that jump being rather in a darker spot that the other areas that were brightly lit. Makes sense.

    I was hoping that the quality would have improved, but no luck. It looks like a tape of a tape of a tape - up side is, now my daughter thinks i am a really good videotaper in comparison, lol....

    I certainly never said (or implied) that i supported SH! Nor did anyone else. My comment was entirely in response to the implication that evil France was in bed with the bad guy.

    Now I am madly trying to figure out whom you both worked for, lol. Don't worry, i will never know!ˆ

    Saddam goes "way back" with many many people, especially Americans and including Rumsfeld plus several presidents....That sword cuts both ways.

    Ainsley Vince at a food booth at the Toronto Winter Fair count? I didn't say anything to her of course but for what it's worth she didn't try to bump up the line and was very pleasant to the clerk....

    The US went into huge arrears with the UN i believe in the Reagan era, and i don't believe Clinton got them out.

    And it is certainly not the case that "the US pays for the UN"! Yes, richer nations...

    History is so undervalued; its only purpose is seen to be as a reinforcer of blind patriotism, not for the sobering lessons it can teach us.

    you will see that i didn't claim that other countries were acting from nobler motives.

    What concerns me is that America (not necessarily Americans as individuals) likes to paint itself as...

    Read your history. The US goes in when it is in their (perceived) interests to go in. Nothing more, nothing less. I'm not saying other countries are more noble in their motives, but let's not be...

    somehow the countries that side with the US and Britain are somehow siding with the little guy against the great big European powers, lol. Excuse me for being cynical, but some of those countries...

    Moesha's excellent post. As a Canadian, I can fully accept that Americans might feel disappointed that we didn't as a country support this war - excuse me, liberating operation - but it upsets me...

    Does English history make it into American schools in any other way than as the villain?! Of course that will have to be changed in light of recent events...
