I could just puke!
« on: March 18, 2003, 09:01:55 am »

After having watched the TV 2nite I could just puke about the news-update about the "intergalactic" war pretty soon going on in YOUR neighborhood.

(If anyone doesn't feel like throwing up right now - answer in a "UQM"-related matter or quote and you'll be answered soon - no doubt 'bout it! If you wish to remain silent, do so, your vote will be counted - the cards are on the table... I'm sorry, but I really can't talk or rant about this really great game when not too far away great injustice will be taking place soon. - Cancel me if you will - that is what regimes usually do when the public doesn't want to be heard!)

That is so fitting, you wouldn't believe it! The Unorzed Orzes of Orzica... *Frumple* them all, them *Orzes*, I'd *dance*'em if they played by fair means...

Unfortunately the New Alliance of Free Stars seems to have fallen under the control of a monkey.  However, it turns out the monkey's advisors are those pesky Dynarri.  Too bad the alliance electorate had chosen this monkey because the previous leader's trivial consensual taboo-breaking.  Probably 50,000 sentients will pay the ultimate price for having a "respectable" monkey-leader.

...Heaven help the world^H^H^H^H^Hgalaxy if this starts another circle of violence, ala the civil war on Palestine-IV.

However, the nicities of diplomacy aside, the "injustice" could not be visited on a shadier regime.  Once they are conquored, I doubt the people of Iraq-VI will complain nearly as vehemently as the rest of the galaxy has.

Now if the New Alliance can just manage to resist the temptation to screw of the perpetually exploited Kurdorians.  Doubt it but there's hope.

My first thought after reading the first paragraph in the topic was "Wow, Americans are even worse in Geography than I thought!"  Tongue
Then of course I realized stuff.

Although you consider us the enemy, these conclusions are flawed. We are your salvation.
We bring you peace
a peace built upon OUR social framework imposed upon your planet
a new world order in which your prosperity and security are assured by the Ur-Quan.

The great injustice is how Saddam treats his people.  I only wish we'd ousted him back in Desert Storm.  As for the war brewing today, I wish it could be avoided but Saddam is an evil man and should be dealt with as such.

Great quotes and replies, guys! I really like UQM for its complexity and the way it covers a lot of topics!

Where you see America as the Ur-Quan, I see America as doing what should have been done to Hitler in 1933.

You could also see America as doing what Germany did to Poland in 1938.  I guess it all depends on how you spin it...

But I figure that at this point, anything short of dragging Bush out of the White House and trying him for treason is navel-gazing.  I'd prefer that there not be shooting going on, but if there's going to be, let's support the troops, and hope that most of them come home in one piece, and soon.

the main difference is that Bush is after Saddam, not Iraq.  Too few people (including many critics of America) differentiate between a country and the current leader of the country.  If there were no such difference the Yehat would never have rebelled and you would have fought the Sa-Matra without Terminators.

In response to the "slave laws" quote, lets keep in mind that the "international laws" (as if such a thing could really exist) Saddam broke were the United Nations' edicts, not America's, and certainly not Bush's.

Saddam = evil, no question about that. But is he enough of a threat to justify attacking?  No.  Although attacking him would get rid of one enemy, it would create more terrorists, make our allies like us a lot less, and probably make a few new enemies. It is not our right to just destroy someone because they're evil. The Druuge are sickeningly evil, but would attacking them be justified?

Now this is not exactly the same thing because Saddam is power-hungry and wants conquest, but it is similar because Saddam's military isn't that strong (he does have some WMD, but not much of a real military). Some say Saddam has almost nothing that can harm, the government says he has tons, I think it's somewhere in between.

What I would do is wait until Saddam does something stupid, like attack a Middle East country again (you know he will eventually). Then we can go after him with international support.  Give the guy enough rope and he'll eventually hang himself.

I asked you guys to please answer in a preferably humorous way related to the Star Control game to my thread - not start ranting politics here.
We had a thread going on that topic and it got cancelled 'cause people were insulting each other and were posting way off UQM.
Let's all be civilized (at least here!) and remember that this forum is only about the Ur-Quan Masters. I intended this thread to let you say what you think quoting our favorite game - please follow these rules (even if others don't).
It's important to talk about things going on - I wanted to do it including SCII.

Well then, maybe it would be best just not to touch this topic on this board.
