An attack that effects the people more than it effects the target is ill advised.
Like the illegal attacks on the Iraqis and the Afghans?
To be honest Pay Pal being down for a short period of time probably isn't the end of the world for anyone... But it surely could have harmed
innocents. Imagine a young mother who was waiting for money to buy formula with that money, or the infant who could have been waiting to eat. Imagine
a scared young woman, sitting at a bus station, waiting for funds to go through so she could find her way back home. Imagine a lot of things that
could have happened. Because, in reality, something like these examples probably did occur today.

Meamwjhile, in Iraq, Afghanistan and Palistine innocent people lost their lives today, others had their homes demolished, others had nothing to eat,
others had no medical care, others have lost their minds out of fear from the bombings - others are struggling to survive the terrirble damage from DU
weapon use, others died of hunger.
The OP was inconvenienced today when payments were disrupted for a few hours, I am sure the young mother waiting to buy formula managed to purchase it
later. Even if she didn't her baby will not die from hunger. The women sitting at the bus station has a brain and a tongue, so she can ask
directions and she has two feet so she can walk. The same cannot be said of many victims of the war ravaged countries currently still under attack by
the US and the Israelis.
Let's not lose perspective on the fact that a few well-fed, safe citizens were inconvenienced for a few hours...all in the cause of others attempting
to fight for the freedom of speech which we need to being the Zionazi crimes into the light of day and bring an end to their sadistic rule.
