Lupe doesn't try and make sense, Mad Scientist, it only wants to cause a disturbance and create chaos. Don't expect it to make much sense. Lupe, as with other things is ignorant of the facts on Columbia.

Once again, no matter what his stance, unless an entertainer has some valid experience on some topic, they should keep their traps shut instead of using their noteriety to further their cause or agenda, this includes conservatives as well wes leftists. Most of them are to braindead and removed from the world to understand reality.

You call that wisdom? HA! James Woods is an idiot...ever stop to think that these "terrorists" reported on tv are pure speculation? Hell! We haven't seen ANY proof, and "reason to believe" WHAT REASONS!? They haven't shared any of them with us! It was assumption/pointing fingers on tv and now everyones gotten used to believing the wrong things...woods says there'd be no consequences if we did what russia would've done coz other terrorists would've been like "we get the messagE", this guy has no wisdom, for he would've realized the environment. Also, his grammar is #, so I don't think his IQ was that high

I think James Woods and Susan Sarandon should have a TV debate on the war on terror.

LOL, I wonder what James Woods has to say now. I haven't heard anything out of him about this topic for a long time.
He does seem to be by far ( out of all the idiot Hollywood actors ), the most qualified to say something - even if it is grating.

Liam Gallagher also has the I.Q of a genius (google for "facts"). However I wouldn't advise listening to him on matters Political. An actor coould never (well, there's obviously the rare "good" one) see both sides of the coin, or even half the other side of the coin, because their coin is blocked out of view by $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

People have opinions. NO WAY!!

Yes, they do.


As such, he expressed his opinion that we need to wage "WAR" and not "war - permission to fire, sir?" So what? It's his opinion and I certainly didn't see him make the talk show rounds to promote that opinion. Someone asked and he told them.

People here want to call him an idiot (among other names) and be insulting because he expressed an opinion contrary to theirs? Nice...

I have to agree with Zeddicus here.....actor or not, he is still entitled to his own opinion. It doesn't accomplish anything saying that someone is an idiot just because you don't agree with their opinion!

Besides, he is right in that if it had happened to Russia, they (Arab countries) would have been taken care of immediately (squashed like a bug).

I believe everyone will target America, because we have to be "civilized", and give people "rights", so they know this, and can get away with murder. Unfortunately, the people here don't seem to have as much "rights" as the illegal aliens that make it into this country. Now I'm getting off onto another subject entirely....

Interesting side notes :


James Woods dropped out of MIT, and apparently said all this within weeks of 9/11.

Anyone inferring some rabid support for the subsequent "I-Rock" stratergy from this probably thinks Wood's "best work" was Cat's Eye.

Oh, then as Byrd points out later in 2002 he was still going on about "Diaper Heads" so I guess he is insane. Good for him. I knew somebody liked Bush.

After doing some research this is what I found


He dropped out to pursue his acting career shortly before his scheduled graduation in 1969


The son of a US Intelligence officer, he earned a scholarship to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, completed a degree in poitical science and then headed off to New York to pursue aspirations to appear on the stage.

www.imdb.com...

Well for all intents and purposes he did finish his degree but left shortly before graduating. So.... RANT your point about that seems to be a result of jealousy maybe, not everyeone can make it into MIT
and with a scholarship no less

I think this particular aspect of what he says...

"If I had any evidence that any single country was supporting one ounce of terrorism I would say wipe them off the face of the earth."

...is a TAD extreme. The arbitrary and summary genocide of a nation (women and children included) surely cannot be justified. With Jim in charge every nation would be snuffed out wholesale within a short space of time on presentation of it's ounce of terror.

Whatever next... an actor in the Whitehouse? Heck that was 20 years ago at least we've moved on since then. right?

The tribute site I'm reading makes it clear he did not finish his degree. Close but no cigar.


A very gifted student, Woods learned to play classical guitar at a young age and was on an honors-student grant program that allowed him to study linear algebra at U.C.L.A. while still in high school. With an I.Q. of 180, he had his sights set on being an eye surgeon before accidentally putting his arm through a glass door resulting in a severed artery that almost ended in the amputation of the limb. Several operations later, Woods regained the use of his arm, but both his surgery career and his ability to play guitar were lost. Boston's M.I.T. school was next, a school that he, of course, attended on a scholarship. But he dropped out just a few months shy of completing a degree in political science to pursue an acting career that began in off-Broadway productions.


Plus, dollars to donuts, putting that arm through a glass door ending his "eye surgeon" hopes was no accident. That boy is crazy. And crazy is one thing I don't need to be jealous of.

James Woods has been in some genuinely excellent movies but, as said, since when does that make him a more serious commentator than any guy off of the street........in fact as also pointed out his, er, let's be 'kind' about this, um, his 'dingbat' past indicates he might not be such a reasonable authority at all, right?

As for his "wipe any state caught sponsoring or engaging in terrorism off of the face of the planet" comment I would suggest he (along with those in total agreement with said comment) might like to reconsider the consequences of that kind of action, not least for the USA itself which when it has felt the need has hardly been above such actions itself.

I think James Woods was articulating what the majority of people were thinking at the time. Even if they don't admit to it

From a historical point Woods is absolutely correct.

Remember Ollie North? Remember what he was famous for? Remember how it all started?

Ronnie, Maggie and Mitterand all said "We will not negotiate with terrorists." Ronnie and Frankie then did just that.

The Soviets, however, sent a KGB team into Beirut. They lifted a (little)known member of a hostage-taking group off streets he assumed were safe and delivered his remains back to the hostage-takers. Surprise, surprise, the Soviet hostages were released forthwith. How long were the Brits and Yanks in "custody"?

Where does Putin come from?

The application of concentrated brutality focuses irrational fear of you. The uncontrolled delivery of widespread brutality only widens the rage against you, just look at Chechnya.

I remember the incident. Kinda shows that terrorists only fear one thing. That is reprisals either as brutal or more brutal than their own actions, because they are all cowards at heart.
