Sarah Palin is the Republican’s Vice-Presidential nominee in ‘that’ election. She says "War with Russia may be necessary if it invades another country. If Russia’s ‘mission’ was to control energy supplies, then "that’s a dangerous position for our world to be in."
So why is america in iraq, if not to control the largest oilfield in the middle east?
She continues, "The mission that we’re on, is the reform of this country and victory in the war." She is a christian who promotes the teaching of creationism [ie the world is only 6000 years old and was designed by "god"]. She says "I believe that there is a plan for this world. I believe that there is great hope and great potential for every country to be able to live and be protected with inalienable rights that I believe are God-given."
Unless you are Russian, Chinese, Iranian . . . . ect ect
Creationism is a throwback to the middle ages when people knew no better. A small minority of fundamentalist Christians – mostly in the United States – find it impossible to accept that the world could have been created in any way other than that described in Genesis. A sceptic would say this is why the USA consistently supports the nation of israel. Adherents insist that the electorate be forced to obey laws based on their interpretations of ancient biblical texts. Such a form of government is commonly referred to as a theocracy (as practiced in such countries as Iran)
This is nothing less than a form of religiously based fascism. This religious indoctrination is the very same criticism aimed at alqueda and the taliban.
Oh and just in case you doubt scientific facts:
Palaeolithic sites dating back around 20,000 years have been found on the coast of India’s western state of Gujarat, there are indications of man-made structures as old as 9,500 years found deep beneath the sea surface. Carbon dating carried out on one of these artefacts – a block of wood bearing the signs of deep fissures – suggested it had been around since about 7,595 BC.
