33 Princess Diana's Death

Actually, the true humanitarian that the world lost at the end of the summer of 1997, was Mother Teresa of Calcutta. I'm not trying to diminish Diana's charitable works, in any way, & like everyone else, I was shocked & very sad when she was killed. However, even Diana would agree that the world lost the greatest humanitarian, when the world lost Mother Teresa a week after her own death.

The world lost a wonderful humanatarian, and a beautifual person on the inside and out. Too sum it all up she was pure class with a heart of gold.

Not exactly up there with 9/11 or Katrina, but the whole world was shocked.

34 Bush Says that God Told Him to go to War

England is the root to most of todays blossomed problems. If they had control of any mass destruction weapon, solely, we'd all be doomed. Whether that be to their will or our graves, is the only question. Most would take the latter willingly.

England has the only government who are responsible enough to have nuclear weapons, because they won't be claiming that god told them to press the button. In this alone the British are the most stable minded and discerning people in the world. - evolver

When I saw this I went, "Wow, this guys reason for war is the same as the terrorists' reason for 9/11". - aman28

Oh yes, and a five headed alien caterpillar on a magic carpet told me that the government of Iraq and al queda have weapons of mass destruction!
