    I've seen what's been said about Bowe's, "capture", and I'm going to reserve opinion on that 'til a later date.

    I too shall wait.....and reserve my judgment.

    I have seen stupidity on both/all sides of the issue so far. I keep remembering the old adage of Marine Corps Operations Officers....."Nothing is as good or as bad as first reported".
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    I couldn't agree more. "No plan survives first contact with enemy", either

    did someone suggest surrender, or is that what you assume anyone who disagrees with you wants?

    It seems to be a common misconception. That if you speak out against egregious acts or say that we should temper our actions and consider the ramifications of some of the more extreme acts that you're looking to extend only a "fruit basket". It's not the case at all, but if we continue in the belief that our actions won't spawn reaction and attempt to understand what that reaction is so that we can encourage the more positive reactions while discouraging the bad; we may find ourselves worse off than we were in the beginning. These problems can't be ignored and often warrant response. But we should also be wary the impact we cause and try to avoid perpetual warfare; that helps no one.

    I didn't know you disagreed with me....or I with you.

    You were just putting out trite statements so I thought I would add one of my own.

    I don't know. Ask the French. They have lots of experience at surrender.

    No one suggested surrender except you in response to a solution that you didn't like.
