It's hardly a challenge TB.

School shootings are poor decisions executed by sick individuals no one could control.

War, especially the Iraq war, was a policy decision. Since our elected officials are already in place, and the voting has been done, the only way for the masses to make their will known is to do things like protest. Did it work? Obviously not. Was it wrong or right to protest? Not at all. It was within the protesters rights, they did the only legal thing they could to make their position known and try to influence policy.

Policy was directly influenced by civil unrest during the Vietnam war. This time around their weren't enough people to be loud enough, so the war went ahead.

Now why don't you explain to us exactly how millions of people attempting to influence government policy through their right to assemble is even slightly comparable to a single indiscrimination by an individual that no one could ever foresee. The Iraq was could be foreseen, thus people tried to prevent it. School shootings (for the most part) cannot be foreseen - if they could the kid would be arrested before it happened.

Oh, come back. You were clever enough to make this brilliant post, so you're surely clever enough to explain why the fact that it makes no sense to protest an unforeseeable action by an individual dictates that it makes no sense to protest foreseeable policy decision by one's government.

Civillians killed as a result of the war on Iraq so far this year: 1955-2402 (from iraqbodycount.net)
Civillians killed as a result of school shootings so far this year: 2-3 (?)

What was the question again?

So you imply that you made some grand point no one can refute. Then, when someone exposes it for the garbage it was, you disappear. I like your style.

I think he may have just been trying to get you guys riled up. If he was, it worked pretty well.

Good show Fiend :smile:

Hey Tackle, he put out a very logical argument which I happen to agree with.  Where's your response?  Debates are usually a bit more fun when the opposing side has a point to argue...
