So what I'm reading is that you're saying is "Hey, that was a horrible thing, just don't do it again." The U.S. shouldn't defend itself? The U.S. shouldn't try to bring these people to justice? What should we do? Have a big camp fire, hold hands and sing songs?

Beyond the obvious reprocussions of not doing anything, we have a right, by basic international law, to go after those involved.

As far as good vs. evil, do you deny that hijacking 4 planes, slitting the throats of some on borad and then crashing the planes into civilian buildings is an evil action? How about blowing up embassies? What about the slew of other horrific things he's done or planned to do? How can you say that this is not an evil person? If an American did any of these things to Iraq, I'd be horrified. I don't use the word 'evil' loosely, but I'd define someone as evil if they have a complete disregard for human life. I think he fits the bill.

I feel there's far too many countries that want to stick their head in the sand and hope that all the bad things are just going to go away. Look at WWII closely, The same thing happened there. "Oh.. you're going to stop with Czechoslovakia? OK then. Oh.. now you're going to stop with Yugoslavia? OK.. as long as you don't take any more."

And I'll leave you with this thought. Though your country will not support the U.S., feel comforted by the fact that the next time your country is in financial trouble, you're threatened by an agressor or there's anything else you ask for help with, the U.S. will be there.


ps - I'm sorry for the harsh tone, but I'm just so tired of complacincy, fearfull fence sitting and other countries who only pretend to be our friends.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
