nieuwenhuys: amy?
Bed-In New Zealand: hello ra, welcome to the bed-in for peace…
jaceee: Amerika has always had this identity problem -- where it ties its identity to its alter ego
jaceee: the cold war
jaceee: the war on drugs
jaceee: and now the war on terrorism
Zorro: yes
jaceee: nothing new
Bed-In New Zealand: yes, andy is unfortunately asleep. he has been very busy today.
jaceee: except it cannot be "won"
jaceee: like the other ones
Zorro: i am from Pakistan and a muslim i totally agree to u but we have to fight the terrorism too
jaceee: so all the talk of strategies miss the point
(private message deleted)
Bed-In New Zealand: i agree with you that the concepts need to be shifted from "winning" and "losing" to promoting positive growth and change but i think people's idea of positive may differ.
(private message deleted)
jaceee: Amerika simply has to stand up against the conditions that cause hatred... bombing it the wrong way
(private message deleted)
jaceee: just take Isreal and Palestine as a micro example of the potential for what is now happening between the US and its ENEMY
Zorro: Amy i have some problems with the ISP but can i add u in my freinds list
Bed-In New Zealand: yes, zorro. please.
Zorro: and Carelia may i add u too plz
clevo: the taliban are run by bin laden and he is a nutcase
clevo: i think they have to stop him by force
Zorro: no Osama is not running the Taliban
Bed-In New Zealand: but how is the question so that more bin ladens don''t appear?
(private message deleted)
Zorro: yes
Zorro: this is the most important issue
(private message deleted)
clevo: the yanks have to stop exploiting the middle eastern people
clevo: leave them to fight with each other
Zorro: ur right ot clevo
(private message deleted)
clevo: but they but the yanks won’t cause of the oil
(private messages deleted)
Zorro: no we must stop the fighting anywhere
clevo: the arabs will always fight its their culture
(private message deleted)
Zorro: its a global village i do not want to give a war torn world to my sons and daughters
(private message deleted)
Zorro: which arabs are u talking about
jaceee: well, historically, Arabic culture flowered during several different eras -- when the Christian world was really in shit condition...
Zorro: Palestinians
clevo: although everyone claims that islam is peaceful a lot of islamic prophets are psycos
jaceee: I know a lot of Christian psychos...
clevo: true, they’re worse
(private message deleted)
clevo: except they are not violently fundamental, every five minutes i hear muslims declaring holy wars on this that and everything
jaceee: There are probably the same percentage of BinLaden-types in the US -- except not Arab, but WASP
Zorro: ok now comment on President declaring crusade
jaceee: surf the net some and check out the hate sites from US paramilitaries...
Bed-In New Zealand: wow, clevo, steady. think about who's media you are listening to and what their point of view is.
jaceee: but WASP, that is
clevo: yeah but they’re not the majority
clevo: and they don’t run the country
jaceee: neither is Bin Laden the majority
clevo: but bin laden is running a puppet regieme through the taliban
jaceee: well, the Cold Warriors have controlled the US for more than 60 years now...
Bed-In New Zealand: there are alot of arabs out there, i don't think the fundamentalists are a majority there either but they get all of the media attention.
jaceee: stepping on people around the globe in "american interests"
NewYorkCity: good point amy!
jaceee: the politics of Afghantistan is not so simple as you frame it... you should look at the history of the region more closely...
clevo: the yanks use globilization to exploit these countries
jaceee: why, for example did the US give the Taliban 46 million dollars last July?
clevo: to fight the russians
(private message deleted)
clevo: who knows
jaceee: the russians had left Afghanistan 8 years ago...
jaceee: it was to prop up "interests" in the region...
Bed-In New Zealand: it is a very complicated issue with a lot of miscommunication.
clevo: the king was in charge and then the pakis helped the taliban kick his but out
jaceee: the king left in 1973
clevo: lol
NewYorkCity: you can say that again amy!
jaceee: we'll see...
(private message deleted)
jaceee: retrospect might give us the answers, at least for those who survuve
nieuwenhuys: the taliban is a currupt regime any money given 2 them will not have been used properly - the people are desperatly poor and hungry and need quality of life somehow.
(private message deleted)
Bed-In New Zealand: yes, the people of afghanistan have been through hell.
jaceee: no doubt... the Afghan people are the ones who are getting screwed for the last 40-50 years since the British times
jaceee: or longer
(private message deleted)
Bed-In New Zealand: welcome to the discussion nieuwenhuys from south of london!

avuncular: yep
jaceee: okay, I can't dredge up my latin in my condition... I'll have to believe you... but what exactly IS uncle -like...
jaceee: I'm an uncle...
Bed-In New Zealand: hello avuncular, welcome to the bed-in for peace…

Bed-In New Zealand: andy is a civil engineer as well as an artist.
Zorro: cool amy
Zorro: i will go and see it
Bed-In New Zealand: well, i wouldn't say that zorro.
Bed-In New Zealand: both andy and i are interested in breaking down boundaries between things and looking at what is behind cultural items.
Bed-In New Zealand: hello foot lover and misterno, welcome to the bed-in for peace…

Zorro: hello fouzia
fouzia: hello how are you ?
Zorro: I am fine thanx and how are u?
fouzia: fine too
Zorro: cool may i ask where are u from
Bed-In New Zealand: okay, as long as there is no nudity and we at least try to stick to the topic, no problem.
fouzia: of course i'm from belgium
Bed-In New Zealand: hello fouzia and welcome back bluejeans, welcome to the bed-in for peace...
Bed-In New Zealand: hi ph, welcome to the bed-in for peace...
fouzia: current global situation ? bullshit
fouzia: i am muslim too
Zorro: what do u mean by that ?
Bed-In New Zealand: ph, what are you saying? we are discussing the us action in afgahanistan and calling for peace. interested? please use text as andy is trying to sleep, thanks.
NewYorkCity: amy, that's an interesting comment you just made...
Bed-In New Zealand: which one, toni?
Bed-In New Zealand: ph, where are you located?
fouzia: i think it's a great idea to bed-in for peace but what kind of peace ? as long as the usa will governate the world there is no way out
NewYorkCity: you don't have to answer this question, amy: why are you against nudity here or the idea of anyone going off-topic?
fouzia: i live in belgium
santxo: spanishh?????
Bed-In New Zealand: people can go off topic, i'm just a little tired of people masturbating and wanting to discuss my tits. other than that, anything goes. although it has been useful as comic relief.
Zorro: so amy now there is another important point is that government of USA have to get her impression improved
Bed-In New Zealand: hello santxo and steve, welcome to the bed-in for peace…
fouzia: and i feel really worried by the actual politic context
Zorro: or u can say have to review her policies
NewYorkCity: the main reason i ask is because in the politics of the bed-in concept originators both are cool. however, i recognize the fact that you may want to change those rules...and you're more than entitled to do so since this is *your* event.
Bed-In New Zealand: we are all worried fouzia, it is very worrying indeed.
fouzia: they have to it's a fact
santxo: necesito ayuda con mi mac
NewYorkCity: i understand what you mean about the "shallow people" as i call them.
Bed-In New Zealand: i'm sorry toni, i'm not following you. remember, we are also fasting and are weak!
NewYorkCity: however...they are people too...and it would be an interesting challenge to try to reach out to them too with your message.
NewYorkCity: i'm sorry!
NewYorkCity: i don't mean to be tough on you...this is just a thought...
fouzia: here in belgium, no one believes in the preparing war, they all think it's only a problem between usa and afghanistan
NewYorkCity: i mean...
Bed-In New Zealand: santxo, que es su problemo? hablo un poco.
Zorro: ok
Zorro: Amy when is your fast going to be over
NewYorkCity: i'm talking about reaching a broader audience...or rather the option of reaching this specific audience
Zorro: i mean its very long to fast for 48 hours
NewYorkCity: i can stop talking about this right now...and we can pick it up later...after the bed-in perhaps, like i suggested yesteday.
Bed-In New Zealand: oh i see toni. i always give them the opportunity first. sometimes they email privately. i usually send a private warning and then if it continues to be aggressive sexually i boot them out. that is just not what i am interested in, but i want to leave the possibility for communication open.
NewYorkCity: i didn't realize that people had been sexually agressive toward you.
NewYorkCity: i understand your concern.
Bed-In New Zealand: yes, 48 hours is a long fast. i think i can make it (but i'm not sure about andy!)
NewYorkCity: and i'm not saying that your event should be a free for all.
NewYorkCity: is it a total fast? or are you allowing yourselves some water at least?
Bed-In New Zealand: no problem toni, it is hard to keep everything together, especially with the private function.
Bed-In New Zealand: we are drinking water.
NewYorkCity: i was wondering if there's a way to disable the private function.
Zorro: ok
Bed-In New Zealand: i think i figured that out yesterday but that seems like a long time ago at this point. with people in and out like this....
Zorro: newyork we 2 are left only
Bed-In New Zealand: hi zorro. are you having server problems?
NewYorkCity: i'm here most of the time zorro.
NewYorkCity: i'm not as strong as amy and andy...
Zorro: yes a little
NewYorkCity: and this is their event...
NewYorkCity: but i support them 100%
Zorro: is this room a permanant one?
Bed-In New Zealand: our fast ends tomorrow at 8 p.m. nz time. in 18 hours.
Zorro: yes they have the conviction to do some thing good
Zorro: oh still a lot of time to go
NewYorkCity: i believe that the best way to change the world is to change yourself.
Zorro: but i am sure u will do it because its for a right cause
Bed-In New Zealand: well, we set it up for this particular event. i don't know what will happen afterwards. perhaps we can keep it until peace.
Zorro: yes i agree
Zorro: newyork
NewYorkCity: it's a great way to open a room on iVisit.
Zorro: u know the city new york is like the mother to the world
Bed-In New Zealand: that would be good, so we can all check in and see what's happening and what we can do to facilitate peace.
Bed-In New Zealand: and understanding
NewYorkCity: i always thought of bagdhad as the mother to the world.
Zorro: hehehe
NewYorkCity: i mean historically.
Zorro: no its the truth
NewYorkCity: i didn't mean that as a joke.
Zorro: now New York city is the mother and so the responsibilities of the mother are
Bed-In New Zealand: the mothers of two worlds or is that concept bullshit?
NewYorkCity: many historians consider it to be "the cradle of western civilization"
Zorro: more then every memeber of the family
NewYorkCity: i'm not sure i follow you amy?
Bed-In New Zealand: the east/west, old/new civilization thing.
NewYorkCity: you make an interesting point zorro.
NewYorkCity: well.. if you ask me, duality sucks!
Bed-In New Zealand: hello norvern munkee, welcome to the bed-in for peace...
norvern munkee: hi all
Bed-In New Zealand: where are you located nm?
NewYorkCity: there's a big difference between immigrants and illegal immigrants zorro.
norvern munkee: sorry had to get fags UK here
NewYorkCity: i'm an immigrant...but i'm not an illegal immigrant.
norvern munkee: so hows the bed in going then
Bed-In New Zealand: i tend to agree about duality, can be very isolating and breeds hate.
Zorro: she is bleeding , we all are very worried
Zorro: yes this is the beauty of the city she welcomes all alike, she does not ask if u are legal or illegal she just welcomes u there
Bed-In New Zealand: very well thank you. andy and i are very hungry though as we are fasting as well, waiting for an "epiphany".
norvern munkee: ahhhhhh philosophy eh
Bed-In New Zealand: a little., where did you hear about the bed-in?
Bed-In New Zealand: or did you come across it on ivisit?
norvern munkee: aha I’ve got to be honest I’ve just stumbled across it
norvern munkee: why whats the plan and why?
Bed-In New Zealand: that's fine, many of our guests come by that way.
Zorro: Amy i lost the answer is this a permanent room
Bed-In New Zealand: well, we haven't really thought about what will happen after tommorrow but it sounds like a good idea to me to keep this room active for awhile
Bed-In New Zealand: so, yes, i suppose is the quicker answer.
norvern munkee: just a weekend bed in then?
Zorro: but do not fast every day ok
Zorro: i will be back after 4 hours
Bed-In New Zealand: yes, we are doing a 48 hour bed-in for peace.
Zorro: amy i got to go now
Zorro: thanx and good bye
Bed-In New Zealand: okay zorro. thanks for coming and we look forward to seeing you later. peace!
norvern munkee: mmmmmmm a difficult one in this world of commercial greed
Bed-In New Zealand: too true.
norvern munkee: the world is not a problem
Zorro: new yorkcity bye plz ask the city new york that we all are very worried about the incident
Bed-In New Zealand: no?
norvern munkee: sorry new york our best wishes at this time
norvern munkee: no its peoples inherent greed that causes problems
Bed-In New Zealand: i agree with you and that is one of the things that we are wrestling with this weekend.
norvern munkee: and i feel that is sadly part of human nature
Bed-In New Zealand: that is the sad thing indeed.

Bed-In New Zealand:

NewYorkCity: it's not an easy thing to handle i suppose.
ctgr: hi all
