Dear Souljah and ATS,
I would like to apologize to you regarding comments I made in a thread regarding British troops supporting terrorism in Iraq and Northern Ireland.
Many stories were being thrown around and many UK members, myself included, gave personal accounts about what happened in Northern Ireland.
First mistake I made was bringing personal information about my family into a thread, yes it helped to prove that some of the accounts were wrong, but
thats what kicked it off. Putting private information changes a thread in a way that can result in "loosing your cool".
Thread went on after page after page and still many would not accept our personal stories. At that point, I reinforced what was said and then entered
a debate with Souljah. At one point, Souljah called the British goverment corrupt and I replied in a way that NO MEMBER OF ATS EVERY
SHOULD. I have been here for four years, I should no better. I made the whole thread personal and for those who do not know Souljah, he is
from the former Yugoslavia Republic and we all know the tragic events of what happened in that part in the World.
Well, I felt that if he was so sure about corruption lets talk about his country in which I brought up the events of the killings and genocide that
took place. I have re-read what I said and yes, it was nasty in the wording. It was very sarcastic and something you do not expect from anyone,
especially regarding events that killed 10,000s of people. Souljah replied and you could tell that what I said effected him, but he still stuck
to his guns (which you have to admire in a member). Insteading of just agreeing to disagree, I basically stuck the knife in about his posts on ATS and
said he was spreading misleading facts about a tragedy...i remember you was one of the first to do so on July 7th... .
I have not seen him on ATS since or in that thread, so I would like send an apology to Souljah regarding my comments about him, Yugoslavia and
his post history on ATS. I do hope that you are still posting on ATS and I hope to hear from you soon.
And to the whole of ATS, I let you guys down on that day.
