    The memorial to the son should also be about the son and not the terrorists, which was my point all along.

    Would you like to try that again? That goes for you too Kal'Stang.
    Sure....

    Right.... that's what we should have done with the Viet Nam memorial, Right?

    Wouldn't want to offend any Vietnamese with that big black wall with 50,000 names on it would we?

    Does the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial mention who killed them?

    Clearly you don't understand the difference between honoring the fallen and placing blame for their deaths. The Vietnam Memorial did not place blame, it gave our fallen veterans honor.

    Please learn the difference.

    Hmm...It was the Vietnam war. Which took place in Vietnam. Which had Vietnamese in it. In which Vietnamese shot and killed our soldiers. The very name of the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial says who killed those soldiers.

    Again why not just call it "Veteran's Memorial"? Or "US Veteran's Memoral"?

    That's why it's called the Veterans Memorial.... Oh, wait a minute.....

    You are entitled to your opinion, I'm entitled to mine. Personally, I think when they rebuild at ground zero, the building should have a plaque on it noting how many died, their names, and who killed them…. A great BIG one.

    Good ,respectful taste is of paramount importance on a memorial. Describing the cause of death, even a murder is simply not in good taste... not on a memorial..
    Many do not seem to possess this quality...
    Few seem to have any notion of what "free speech" really is.
    Dont call it free speech then. Call it agreeable respectful speech. Thats the way the white house wants it right now.
    Thank you

    What do you think? The town wants to put a memorial plaque next to its town hall but the father wants the phrase 'Murdered by Muslim Terrorists' put on the plaque.

    The town thinks it's just too controversial to put those words.
    I understand where you are coming from, but let me tell you another story:

    Here in Texas, not too many years ago, a black man was chained to the back of a pickup truck by a couple of professed Christians, who also happened to be members of the KKK, and dragged to death. In the process, the black man's head came off. It was one of the most brutal murders imaginable.

    How would you feel about a memorial plaque, dedicated to the victim, that reads "Murdered by Christian terrorists"?

    Hmm...Is any of this written on the Vietnam Memorial? No, so you are unable to make the comparison.

    Again why not just call it "Veteran's Memorial"? Or "US Veteran's Memoral"?
    What is your point? This argument does help not your stance on the matter, so I don't know why you're bringing it up.

    Would you like to try a 4th time?

    The name says it all. It doesn't need to be said directly. When you hear the word "Vietnam" what is the first thing that pops into your mind? The war more than likely. What happened in that war? People died. Our soldiers were killed by Vietnamese. Considering that memorial was made because of the war it should be obvious how the comparison fits and is true.

    You seriously don't get the point? After all that I have said? Explaining to you how the very name states what happened? Think about what I have said instead of just reacting to what I said. You will understand why I am asking that question.
