    Whats wrong with that? Im talking about a hypothetical where people who feel oppressed see violence as a solution. Why not give them what they want and leave them alone, so they wont have to pursue violence as a solution?

    I don't know, wouldn't just teach other groups that if they bomb something or fly a plane into a building that they'll get what they want?

    How are you going to stop one man from crossing the U.S. border, when and where he wants to?

    Fill us in.

    Not trying to be a jerk here, but I don't believe that it can be done.

    That's true. We can all respond in different ways. But i was saying what I would do, or strongly consider doing, if it was my family who were the victims. I would probably be ashamed if I didn't act.

    On the other hand, who is the first group that comes to mind when these sorts of things happen?
