As the war against Iraq is now underway, we're asking what you think about the most recent conflict in the middle east. Should we be fighting a war? Are the United States, Britain, Spain and Portugal just in their crusade against Saddam Hussein? You decid

1 OK, this is the second message I've sent. I really think that confused1988 is wrong. I know it will affect families and other people's lives. I think there should be WAR!!! I really agree with you faeriequeen. Most of my friends agree too that there should be war!

1 I know ya'll are sick of me debatin' with confused1988, but I just want to say my peace and I'll be done.
#1. We DON'T use 30 of the world's strongest armed forces! WE have their support but not their troops.
#2. In case you failed to realize, we have ALWAYS had access to China, Pakistan and India. Can you say, DUH?
#3. Hello? We didn't take control of the oil, we simply - nevermind, none of this will go through your head anyway.
#4. I don't know if your from America or not but if you are you should be grateful to our armed forces because they have given us our freedom time and time again. We should respect them.
#5. Did I SAY that Saddam was the target?! NO! I said he was one of them. And to get to Saddam there are millions of other terrorists that we must get to first.
#6. The millions killed in Palestine?! What are you talking about? All they do is kill the poor Isralis!
#7. BUSH isn't the one that causes all the cancer and other diseases in Iraq! Diseases are everywhere. Do you HONESTLY think one man could do that? And even if he could, Bush is a good person - he wouldn't do that. Ya know, confused is a good name for you because you don't know what you're talking about.

1 That only displays more of your ignorance, faeriequeen_91. Where did I say that I didn't care about 9/11? Oh I care, but does that mean that I shouldn't care about all the other millions of people dying everywhere else - but only about a few thousand in New York City?

Then again, women couldn't own and manage land while married until 1718....and it wasn't national until around 1850. You should probably specify where, because the place where I live wasn't even colonized yet in 1718.  Providence of Pennsylvania. However most states didn't accept it until around 1840-50. Maryland had achieved statehood in 1788, but it took them until 1841 to legalize married women to own property, and even them they had no control over the property. This is the case for many states. Face it, early America treated women as property....she was right on that part. But that's all changed. I'm not denying it. I was merely suggesting that you should specify where. Of course, in all the dates you've listed so far, men were also to be bought and sold as property in the U.S. in the states that would become the Confederacy. I would say that their treatment as property was much harsher than that of women in many cases, but yes, of course both men and women have been treated as property by the law in the past, and still are in many places today.    American Slavery didn't discriminate between genders. And for women, it was the same for blacks and whites. Also, pinning slavery and the confederacy together? I thought you knew more about the topic. But that's another debate. I should have known using the confederacy as an example would resonate with you. Like you said, it's another topic, but I could also talk about the Pacific slave trade.
