Any time you are ready Whug, come on down to Middle East forum. Then, when you tell them that you worked with and talked with the Sons of Iraq and what that achieved in Iraq you can be denounced as a terrorists as well.
There are many posters who are interested in the subject of counter-terrorism and COIN, and there are a few who think that any talk about extremist groups equates to supporting that extremist group.
THis thread was a direct rebuttal to that small group of posters, and, upon deliberation, was moved out of the forum to give it wider view and discussion.
The context is not clear upon moving the thread, but it is a direct rebuttal to small number of posters in the ME forum who view accurately describing Hamas's intentions as directly supporting terrorism. That is the context. This is a rebuttal to a small group of posters who think there are 'real' terrorists stalking the halls of debatepolitics.com.
