    Obviously you are because you can't seem to comprehend what the statement is. Saying that treating the enemy better will cause them to treat us better and saying that public and grotesque acts of violence against the people will increase the likelihood of them treating our soldiers worse are two very different statements. If you have enough command of the English language, you will see the difference.

    Is English not your first language? Is Eric Rudolph being treated "good"? Is it unreasonable to treat foreign detainees the same as a domestic terrorist? Please cite what I "said again", I did not even follow your response.

    Yes, because they will return him if we do this

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    They just might. People in that part of the world are scared to freakin death of being burned. They're so afraid of the prospect, that they won't even explain why.

    Ya'll gotta stop thinking like American Liberals/Moderates There are no American Liberals/Moderates in the Taliban. They think differently than you. It's not rocket science.

    Umm, why wouldn't they just kill him.

    I would.

    Your method is stupid.

    It has nothing to do with Liberals and Moderates. Im a right leaning centrist who has went to Iraq two times on combat deployments in the Army. I think I know that they think differently than us. But I'll tell you that they would just kill the guy or torture him. They wouldn't allow us turning into terrorists to make them suddenly decide to stop. Thats just ignorant.

    Then you should know exactly what I'm talking about. Ever see'em get all freaked out at the idea of being burned? I mean, it's weird, dude!

    Personally, I think we've been playing patty cake with these ****ers for far too long. We have some fine body counts, so far, but not nearly what they should be, IMO.

    Umm, why wouldn't they just kill him.
    We'll just ramp up the killing. They might kill him, but they'll damn sure think twice before killing the next one.
