[QUOTE=VanceMack;1059266571Imagine a thread where the actions of extremist muslims were pointed out, and instead of some rambling blathering excuse on the defense of, the response was simply..."you are right...what scumbags. I agree...ALL should do more to stand against such animals." End thread. No need to apologize for them, no need to excuse or justify. A simple acknowledgement of the obvious...similar to what was done here in the OP.[/QUOTE]
Which would be pretty pointless, this is "Debate Politics" not 'state the obvious and go away' what is up for disscussion is not whether these actions are moral but why they occur. To explain or understand these actions is not to excuse them.
