- Fear mongering or scaremongering is the use of fear to influence the opinions and actions of others towards some specific end.
Welcome back, notpom
I've missed your considered opinions and inimitable use of the English language.
"Knowledge shrinks as wisdom grows." Alfred North Whitehead
Geez what a load of scaremongering tosh, I currently live in vibrant, beautiful, awesome Glenelg, I lived in London at the time of the 7/7 bombings, wherever you live there are always the risk of accidents, terrorism, natural disasters...it's called life. If you let the fear of any of these things affect your judgement then you may as well go and live as a hermit in a cave.
And as for Adelaide not being a cultural centre, I'm slightly baffled as to how you could ever say that!? Hilarious. There is just as much accessible culture here as in many European cities, also a lot more inclusive events for people of all ages and backgrounds, I guess that's why SA is the festival state.

Now - please tell me - did you vote for the people who licked America's bum and started war in Iraq ?
I bet you did. Why has this war started? Because American, Uk's and Australian intelligence said that Saddam hides weapons of mass destruction.
Did you continue to vote for the scoundrels when it had become clear that WMD is a lie?
Explain to me why when it has become blatantly clear that WMD is bovine excrement (scaremongering) you hanged democratically elected president of independent country?
Why did you turn normal stable country into never ending bloodshed?

The other side was that at the same time you voted for the scoundrels who flooded a country with "refugees" who are very determined to mount their revenge for their muslim "brothers" killed by anglo-saxons.
This is the reality. Yours is news.com hurray-patriotism.
