"When the full and true story of Jean-Bertrand Aristide is finally told, it will portray a noble and humble man who gave of himself honorably to serve the interests of all the people of Haiti. His only failure was his inability to overcome the brutal and corrupt power of the U.S. and its determination to see him fail. "

There is nothing but hate in their posts.
If this is what makes an atheist then I wouldn't want to be one.
And before they start throwing insults, as usual and as expected, I do not belong to any religion, I just believe in God. It is a personal matter.

Which is another thing about atheists. It is obvious that their issue is not whether God exists or not, but their hate of Christians. I never see them, except in rare cases, mentioning other religions which also believe in God and are committing atrocities in the name of God, as Muslims are doing.
They should be thankful that they are living in a Christian country which gives them the freedom to be atheists and free speech, even if offensive.
If they were living in a muslim country they would be beheaded and executed in public for blasphemy.
Freedom of speech also does not exist in officially atheist countries, like China.

So nobody in their right mind can take these atheists posting here seriously.
They don't want discussion, but just spit out their hate.
I have no doubt that if given the power and chance they would torture and kill all Christians.
So who said that atheism is not a religion?
And a fanatical religion at that?

I don't want to hear the usual endless list of name calling for answers, that is for children and fanatics, but a serious discussion about the points I mentioned, and also those raised by others. But I am probably asking too much.
Is that why you stalk them in your various socks?

i personally believe and have much scriptual precedent to back it, that the wicked and their Godless theories will soon be forgotten once the Redeemed begin their eternal journey:-)

"The economic and financing issues surr
ounding the Desert Storm Operation are
unique in this survey in several ways. First, it was the only military operation
considered that did not require any increase in military expenditures as a percentage
of GDP. In fact, it took place during the
long reduction in military spending as a
percentage of GDP that accompanied the end of the Cold War. In this broad sense,
there is no reason to consider the economic
effects of financing the buildup. In fact,
an economic contraction occurred during Desert Storm, unlike the typical wartime
economic boom. The 1990-1991 recession is not
typically attributed to the war,
except for its possible negative effects on confidence. Instead, it is typically
attributed to contractiona
ry monetary policy (undertak
en through 1989 to quell the
rising inflation rate), problems in the ba
nking sector, and the spike in oil prices
associated with the Iraqi invasion of Kuwa
it. Timing supports this argument: the
monetary tightening took place in 1988 and 1989, the recession began in July 1990,
the oil price spike began in August
1990, and military operations
began in January 1991. After the conflict e
nded, the economy began to expand again (in March 1991)
— it did not experience post-war contraction.
Unlike previous military conflicts, in which the Federal Reserve had tolerated
excessive money creation, durin
g Desert Storm the Federal
Reserve sought to stamp
out inflationary pressures that originated before the conflict, even at the risk of
recession. After the conflic
t ended, the economy began to expand again. The budget
deficit rose during the conflict, but it would be difficult to claim that military
spending contributed to the rise in the deficit when overall military spending was
declining during this time. Instead, the ri
sing budget deficit was characterized by
falling tax revenues and risi
ng non-military outlays, both of
which can be largely
accounted for by automatic changes in re
venues and outlays caused by the economic
slowdown.
13
To reduce the widening deficit, the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act
of 1990 cut spending and increased taxes.
It was estimated that over the following
five years, 57% of the de
ficit reduction would come fr
om spending cuts and 29%
from tax increases (14% would come from lower interest payments). Changes to
excise taxes, payroll taxes, and individua
l income taxes accounted for the bulk of the
tax increases. The revenue raising provisions of the act were estimated to raise tax
revenues by 0.3% of GDP in 1991. Most of
the spending reductions were to come
from reductions in military outlays and Medicare spending.
14
Another unique aspect of the financin
g of the Gulf War was the financial
contributions that the Unite
d States received from its allies. In effect, foreign
governments financed a large part of
the war effort for the United States —
contributions from foreign governments
equaled $48 billion, wh
ile the overall cost
of the war was $61 billion in current dollars.
15
In the balance of payments, these
contributions represented a unilateral transfer to the United States, which is recorded
as a reduction in the current account deficit.
The exchange value of the dollar was
unlikely to have been significantly aff
ected, however, since a substantial portion of
the contributions came from Saudi Arab
ia and Kuwait, both of whom had a
de facto
fixed exchange rate with the dollar.
