The point of "suicide soldiers" was well covered by Mr. agent. In war it's simply a way of either attacking or defending a specific target. A well
executed suicide attempt can make a big difference, that's a fact.
Then for some food to Blarney:
I guess you have never had the misfortune of being the underdog
I think this and his previous statement from Mr. Spider refered to Iraq and Your personal experience. General Lee was indeed a brave and intelligent
man with experience in actual war. I'm sure you have "underdog" experience too, but is it actually relevant compared to what we are discussing?
Regarding Bin Laden btw, at the moment I'm not sure what to think actually. The way I see it there's a possibility that he is not at all that
connected to 9/11, if connected at all. What I'd like to say here though is that the "boy piercing tire" story may well go all the way up among
intelligent adults. Correctly offended, even adults can get into destructive circles. And at that point I would say: the more money and power they
have the more dangerous they are.
Civilians represent their country. That's reason enough.
Well, obviously it is reason enough as we have seen now over and over. Why did America invade Iraq again btw..? It seems to me the reasons are kind of
unclear. Now that sure doesn't make the Iraqis any happier.
For America, Iraq is a war about revenge, power, money and dominance. Now I'm sorry, but I don't see much respectable in that.
For many Iraqis on the other hand, the war is all out war. They are being invaded and killed by the thousands. Now Saddam is gone and all proof that
Iraq had either WMD or any involvement in 9/11 is just rubbish, but they are still being bombed and called terrorists cause they fight for their own
land. Now where's the sense in all this?
Now even more foreign military and business men are arriving, trying to earn a buck out of the whole thing and restore "peace". It's upsetting for
many of us spectators to see, we can just imagine what the natives feel.
If catching a foreigner during circumstances like this and demanding that they leave is too much... then I don't know what they could do. And since
they simply didn't leave, why not just cut the darn head of the hostage. Nothing else works anyway.
Ok, now I've given a point of view to the situation. May it be right or may it be wrong. Let's just think about it and share our ideas. For me at
least it is comprehendable what they are doing. And justified.
About the WWII end btw, I'm not qualified to discuss what would have happened if America did not drop their Nukes over Japan, perhaps the outcome
would have been different. At least to my belief, I do think the Kamikaze pilots did a great and honorable job serving their purpose at that time.
This not because I have anything against America in particular, but from a war point of view.
I do express some hostile attitudes against America in my threads here and there. Be sure though that my hostility towards stupidity is equal against
all, no matter what nationality. However, at times like this I don't mind favouring the underdogs. Especially when the yankees are doing their "Hot
dog rallies" (I'm the coolest in the world crap) Some people do need to get thrown down on the ground now and then.
Regarding Tiananmen I have nothing to say. Haven't dug in to it.
PS: Blarney, You do got some good points and I do enjoy discussing with ya'll
