Please; enough with the back and forth nature of quoting and rebuttals.

Making this thread all about your own personal debates and issues is not good for discussion.

Take it to u2u.

So, Muaddib, would you be fine if Terrorists attacked Military targets or intended to? Or is your problem with them purely on the basis you disagree with their ideology and not their actions? Would you care if they said what they said, but never acted upon it?

You see, because when anyone kills another innocent person that to me is the same no matter who they are, be it a U.S. Soldier, a French solider, a Muslim extremist. The problem is, people seem to paint a different picture of one person onto another because they disagree with it. Which can make you as much of a terrorist in another persons eyes.

I disagree with their ideology and the manner in which they attack people, not caring who they kill or how they do it. Anyone, even soldiers who kill "indiscriminately" and commit other crimes such as raping women, are of the same ilk.

Yes, there have been, and more likely there will be some soldiers, even in the U.S. Armed Forces, who will do these things and love doing them, but these are the exceptions and not the rule.

Wars are hell, and even good soldiers can make mistakes, but when these soldiers realize their mistakes and that they have killed innocent people, they will feel remorse, among a miriad of other emotions that could haunt them all their life. Terrorists do not feel these emotions, in their minds everyone, even civilians are the enemy and as thus deserve the same fate as any soldier in any way possible.

That was not what you said originally Odium, and usually you, among some other people seem to only want to blame the U.S. for anything and everything, otherwise you would be pointing, without anyone reminding you of this, that people/soldiers from other countries do the same thing, but as usual you don't do this unless someone points it out. You, among some other members, always want to blame the U.S. every chance you get.

Muaddib, of course you are going to see me point out flaws with the United State's administration over many others, because the majority of the posts are about them. Your arguement doesn't factor into the ethnocentricity of this website. The fact that on many occasions I've agreed with things the U.S. administration have done and even defended Bush twice now, escapes notice so you can continue to make this a political issue.

Also, the fact is you bomb places, you kill innocent people. The U.S. Government might target a terrorist, but the fact is that bomb is more than likely to kill innocent people and they know that and do not care. This is the same as any terrorist. The likelyhood is, they will kill at least one person who supports the United State's and to be honest, the U.S. Policy isn't working.

Killing innocent people, makes more terrorists.
