I could extend the "emotionally distraught" thing to the point where if hypothetically your wife had actually been killed, and when you hear about it, are so upset that you walk right out of your house and see a cab-driver of mid-eastern descent and pull him out of his car and start beating the cra...

affg, I can see that you have actually thought through the entire situation. Perhaps looked at the arguments on both sides, which is hardly what I can say for others. I credit you with at least speaking with reason. However, read this: First, lets scratch the pentagon out of the argument. We can agr...

Likewise, Bush can't go to the reservists and say 'hey, uh, could you possibly throw away a year of your life so that Cheney's pals can sell gas for $2.34 a gallon in one of the most oil rich nations in the world?

Acting as though the USA can do no wrong only hurts your credibility and causes others to dismiss you. I have never once stated that I believe this. The US has been wrong on more than one occasion, and I wouldn't lead anyone to belive that the US is 100% right. Where I take exception is when people...

occupying infidels from their land? This argument doesn't fly either. We're not the only targets. In fact only a small minority of their attacks have been on us, or on our soil.

Yo Eclipitc, In your non-blindly "kill them because they want to kill me" scenario, do the 3,800 (minimum) to 5,000 civilian deaths in Afghanistan in the months immediatley following 911 enter the equation?

I'm trying to figure out how anyone could view flying loaded airplanes into various buildings killing thousands as "protecting your own". I'm not blindly killing anyone. It's pretty clear who I'd kill and why. This is war whether you believe that or not, and I guarantee there will be more massive at...

Sounds like this is personal for you. The reason I'd kill them is different than the reason they'd kill me. They seek out innocents to kill in mass numbers to advance their religion. I would kill them to protect my own. See the difference yet?

How is that? What's wrong with those statements? I would kill them if given the opportunity. I spent 8 years in the military, and never had the chance. It goes way beyond 9/11 too. They've been attacking us for years now, and we haven't done anything serious about it unitl now.

You're right about parts of that. I should have been more specific. I was talking about the main threat towards the US, Al Queda. There are domestic terrorists too, and they're no better. However why should I as an American hold any responsibility for what these fucks bring to us? These other countr...

Oh, and apparently he believes that "DFTT" was coined for him. I'm sure it's been used in reference to him. But De Facto, my take on that acronym is that it means: Dont Feed The Trolls. Not everything is about you.

I was just graced with a pm from De Facto. I don't know this guy, but apparently he's still looking for attention. So I decided to give it to him. I suspect I'm not the only one this went to.

Well, I know now that you're not WSPR or last real burner. In fact LRB has been on these boards for years. However Lilly Flower is entirely too obvious. Funny how the majority of her posts are directly after yours.
