Twott, how can you say that it is the boy's family's fault? The boy was raised in a good church-going family and was at the top of his class. He then committed a heinous act - how can his action then be the family's fault? People do not get all of their attitudes from their family - in these days of...Jump to post
The A340 hasn't had a single crash yet over the 6 to 8 years it has been in service for while the 747 and DC-10 first experienced crashes within 5 years after it entered service. It is a very safe plane and will get you to your destination fine.
Or take UAL942 on a 777 or AA42 on a 763.
I just question whether death is right for a man of his age, but there is no way I condone his heinous act of violence. Apparently the victim "surrendered" to the man but was still shot, which gets to me. His background should have nothing to do with the fact that he committed the crime and it, too ...Jump to post
Here is an article that I extracted some of the information that formed my opinion from:
Should Napoleon Beazley be executed this week? In my opinion, no. Here is an article about him for those who do not know anything about what who he is and what he did.

Cause: Mister Sharon takes away their homes. Effect: The Palestinians resort to terrorism to win a war that they could not otherwise win. Cause: Mister Sharon kills Palestinian terrorists/"heroes." Effect: Palestinians resort to more terrorist attacks. The End: Nothing achieved by either side. The "...Jump to post
The A-bomb was necessary to scare Japan into submission. The thing that is sad is that many innocent Japanese civilians had to die for peace, which was Japan's fault. No one should tolerate the murder of civilians in wartime but in that case it was necessary. I just find N400QX's comment and profani...Jump to post
OK, so Japan was bad but to this day and age you should forget about Japan's misdeeds (most of except for things like the Rape of Nanking and other brutal acts against civilians) and look at WWII as something that arose out of a horrible mistake. Yes, you should be proud of the U.S. and the allies f...Jump to post
Abortion=murder of innocent babies that have done nothing wrong due to one's irresponsibility. Abortion=the issue that only the woman who wants to have it should worry about since the government shouldn't be telling her what she can or cannot do with her body. I am pro-choice but I am split over tho...Jump to post
Keep in mind that most Americans support stem-cell research in one way or another. Scientists say that 60 lines of stem cells are more than enough. I think he made a compromise that is fair to all, both to the majority of American people and to those who strongly view this as a moral issue and that ...Jump to post
I thought I read that SR is breaking up Balaircta within a couple of years and taking long-haul charters while giving the short-haul to their regional subsidiary Crossair. What about Condor and LH and Sobelair and SN? Does LTU own LTE as their charter carrier? In general, does anybody know why Europ...Jump to post
I used to use a Mac with 7.5 but now I'm on a PC with Win98. Even though Win98 is more modern, in terms of stability and performance, the Mac still wins hands down. My Win98 sometimes crashes or freezes unexpectedly when I am doing nothing big with it, which can be as simple as opening a new window ...Jump to post
