My first thought is to bristle up the hairs on the back of my neck and argue with ya. But, that's a very good point.Strange Destiny said:I've always thought of it as the "Haves" and "Have-nots" Which group is which depends on how someone looks at it.
Cephus, you are right. The object of someone's desire and jealousy, doesn't have to be a material thing. It can be freedom, tyranny, or whatever someone wants. Its hard to say what is valued by a group. Some people have very "different" points of view. I read a saying somewhere, it goes, One man's terrorist, is another man's patriot. It all goes with point of view, I guess.

they go to school how the worship. Maybe we have come to far but there are alot of people out there that can't do these things,now don't get me wrong we will never be perfect and we will never live long enough to see Zanado or what ever anybody wants to call it but we can make a differance in awhole lota lives around this world.
Precisely wrong my dear...a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. A terrorist by any other name would terrorize with fear...Strange Destiny said:Precisely. It is who is looking at it.
You are missing my point. We will never change the minds of some people, they see themselves as being in the right. Do you think the creeps that flew planes into the WTC on 9-11 considered themselves terrorist, probably not. I certainly do. but they don't really care what I think, they just want me to be afraid. I think they are evil, thats not how they see it.N/A said:Precisely wrong my dear...a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. A terrorist by any other name would terrorize with fear...
It's like saying a rapist was only having sex....it doesn't change the fact it was rape. Saying violence/war is wrong and then saying that saving a woman/country from a rapist by physical violence is wrong because viloence is wrong is a failure of morality.
I missed this post yesterday when I read this thread.N/A said:If you actually find anyone in the world that has a "balanced" attitutude towards/about America/Americans, be sure and let me know....
Personally, I'm about ready to leave the world alone....i.e. as in no more foreign aid, no more disaster relief, no humanitarian relief, ad nauseum.....just kick ass when attack and don't let up. let the rest of the world take care of theirselves for awhile or depend on all the socialist countries to take up the slack.
