Do I hear mindless loyalty?
, The sentiment I'm getting from your post is that all "protesters" should basically wake up and smell the coffee, why not see things for what they are for a change, like on your own? I understand that you're still in emotion, but that's no excuse. The US response is not what bothers me, nor is it the way they do it or how; it's their intentions during and after the "war", if it ever ends...
Terrorism has been going on in other countries for decades, and the US is acting like this is the first time this has ever happened, and since it happened to us, be better do something about it. My question is, why now? Why not before when it was in it's infancy? The idea that they attacked our freedom or democracy is bull, they attacked the USA, this whole operation is an excuse to go to war.
Let me make this quite clear - I'm for responding to the attacks, I just think it wont end and there is no intent on eradicating the evil.
this is for you:
We need to go after the source of the problem to come up with some solutions, but this would cost too much; and in a society of capitalists, well nuff said. Why else? I mean, the death penalty costs less than rehabilitation. This is an example of the easy way out which is what our current "war" is.
We have to think of this psychologically, not with Mk-82's and GBU-27's just yet. What causes terrorism, have any of you guys ever thought of that? They have somehow equated America with their pain, what's their pain? Most people experience things that cause them to keep it in until they lash out at someone, in this case, 6000 other people. An analog would be an abusive parent, more than likely they were abused as a child; similarly these terrorists had experienced some sort of terror in their lifes that justifies their actions. Just in case they have a concious(sp?), they scapegoat their religion as justification -- a sign of stupidity -- so we must educate them.
Since bin Laden is brainwashing everyone we need to take him out of the equation then deal with everyone else. I imagine it will cost much more than this "war", but the peace will last much longer. Fighting terrorism the way Bush wants to do it is like mowing the lawn to get rid of grass. In the short term, yes, there is less grass, but soon it'll all grow back; we have to dig out the roots! They attempted to mow us down, but we grew back, let's uproot them, okay?
Well...I have provided my attempt at one solution
which can work if someone considered all the potentials, but if you still want to nuke them, you're a lost cause and I bid you farewell.
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.
