>>>Reparations not only to the Iraqi victims, but to all damaged parties, including Europeans who suffer from the misuse of “Western Values” during and after the American invasion of Iraq<<<

So, how much money has been paid out by European nations for the damage caused by 400 years of colonialism?  Or maybe you think Leopold II helped "Western Values."

re: montblanc

man, you really see conspiracy in everything.  i think that, given ltong's previously expressed opinions, that he is definitely NOT in the employment of u.s. intelligence agencies.

i do appreciate, however, what you are trying to talk about.  

i think it is incredulous for european objectors to demand reparations from the u.s.  not so crazy for iraqis to ask for it.  i think that is a possibility, though certainly not a requirement.

Mont Blanc

It seems as though you are a decent sort, but underneath your polished exterior lies the heart of someone who holds a deep hatred of the U.S., plain and simple.

Personally, I don't see any reason to debate your post because I don't think you are open to another point of view.  If I hated France or Germany (or whichever country you identify most with) as much as you hate the U.S., you wouldn't be interested in my thoughts as well.

To Mont Blanc...

I can only see two sensible sentences in your post, montblanc, these:

======================
In contrast to other democracies in Europe and elsewhere, there is in the US not enough attenuation for the possibility that a government turns wild and/or irresponsible.

This has to be considered a very bad systemic flaw in the US Democracy.
======================

The stuff before is nonsense or not relevant to your argument, the stuff after is pipe-dream material, IMO. Maybe you could expand on these two sentences?

Yours, Calimero
