    Re: 100 protesters burn American flag outside U.S. embassy in London

    Guess where the OP stopped? ...

    "A small group of Muslims staged a counter-demonstration nearby, holding up placards reading 'Muslims Against Extremism' and 'If You Want Sharia, Move To Saudi'.
    Abdul Sallam, 41, who was waving a sign that read 'Keep The Silence', travelled down to London from his home in Glasgow to show the strength of his feelings.
    He said: 'I'm a Muslim. What they're doing is bringing shame on all Muslims.This is not part of the teachings of Islam.
    'Islam is all about peace, but what they want to do is hate other people... "

    Bigots on either side don't want his message heard.

    War is about more of the enemy dying than you dying. We were not attacked at Pearl Harbor by the civilian population of Japan. We were attacked by it's military. A little more organized than the taliban, but the same idea. No real difference. If you can justify us nuking Japan then using the same logic I can justify us nuking Afghanistan. See how that works? It's called all is fair in love and war.

    Let's play a little game. You're a terrorist. You hate America. You and your terrorist brethren decide you want to attack the USA and you plan and accomplish 9/11. You see the USA retaliate with a large scale nuclear attack on your homeland, wiping it off the map and making it unlivable, if you even live through the nukes. Does that send a clear message that you don't want to **** with the USA when you're shooting AK-47's and they're slinging 100KT nuclear warheads?

    What message does it send when we reply with a few bombs, lots of riff-raff between political parties here at home and a stronger more organized terror organization as a result? As a terrorist, I want scenario number 2. I sure as **** don't want to **** with scenario number 1.

    What say you?
    No Afghanis or Iraqis attacked us on 9/11. When you suggest nuking the terrorist's homeland, are you speaking of Saudi Arabia, since all but one were Saudi?

    The only reason to link Afghanistan to Iraq is to muddy the understanding of both. Is it your contention that Afghanistan was attacked unjustly?

    How many civilian deaths were caused by the terrorist targets hiding like cowards among civilian populations?

    How many of them would have been hiding there if Bush hadn't invaded Iraq? Basically zero. As Colin Powell said, "you break it, you own it."

    No, I didn't support him. There are a lot of evil f*cks in the world who I don't support. But it's not our responsibility to depose all of them.
