I am all for snuffing out the lives of the individuals responsible. I am not for bombing those who had no hand in the action.

If I had a cockroach problem, i would not study their behavior to try to seperate the good cockroaches from the bad. So that i could punish only the roaches that run on the table onto my sandwiches.

I kill 'em all, it's quick, easy and I have no problem doing it.

These are people, not cockroaches, and most of them had nothing to do with this. Targeting innocent civilians for what others did is called terrorism.

I have expressed numerous times on this board that I am against the initiation of force, I don't care who does it. I 'speak out' (when I feel like it) on numerous issues against those who support the initiation of force when such sentiments are expressed. I did not read any poster stating that they supported this action and I did not feel the need to state the obvious until I read your statement.

Ok. you're probably right - i'd hate to have secret service knocking on my door.


To be clear:

I find the slaying of Nick Berg appaling and disgusting.

In fact, I was at least as strongly affected by watching the video of Nick Berg as I was by the images from 9/11 - although smaller scale, it was more personal.



I said what I did because I can't believe that anybody here would take me seriously. It is totally absurd to ask a forum where most of the participants are American, Brittish, or Australian what they feel about something like that.
