With all of this talk of impending war, many of us will encounter "Peace Activists" who will try and convince us that we must refrain from engaging in war with Iraq. These activists may be alone or in a gathering...most of us don't know how to react to them. When you come upon one of these people, or one of their rallies, here are the proper rules of etiquette:

1. Listen politely while this person explains their views. Strike up a conversation if necessary and look very interested in their ideas. They will tell you how revenge is immoral, and that by attacking the people Who did this to us, we will only bring on more violence. They will probably use many arguments, ranging from political to religious to humanitarian.

2. In the middle of their remarks, without any warning, punch them in the nose.

3. When the person gets up off of the ground, they will be very angry and they may try to hit you, so be careful.

4. Very quickly and calmly remind the person that violence only brings about more violence and remind them of their stand on this matter. Tell them if they are really committed to a non-violent approach to undeserved attacks, they will turn the other cheek and negotiate a solution. Tell them they must lead by example if they really believe what they are saying.

5. Most of them will think for a moment and then agree that you are correct.

6. As soon as they do that, hit them again. Only this time hit them much harder. Square in the nose.

7. Repeat steps 2-5 until the desired results are obtained and the idiot realizes how silly of an argument he/she is making.

8. There is no difference in an individual attacking an unsuspecting victim or a group of terrorists attacking a nation of people. It is unacceptable and must be dealt with. Perhaps at a high cost. We owe our military a huge debt for what they are about to do for us and our children. We must support them and our leaders at times like these. We have no choice. We either strike back, VERY HARD, or we will keep getting hit in the nose.

I was watching a program on TV where a reporter was interviewing protesters and I was amazed how uninformed they were. Some of the responses that people were giving as to why they were joining these protests were "it was fun", "to get out of class or work", "not really sure, just want peace". How do you protest something you know nothing about?

Your completely right ProudAmerican. I posted this once before but it proves your point about how uneducated these protesters are.

Personally, I think that television in the United States is biased. Just not the way you think Karl. It is liberal and always favors the Democrats.

Yes, Karl, our TV is totally biased unlike the perfectly pure information you get over there in Germany.
(You did catch the sarcasm, right?)

View AF-1's post above. That is how it is. Regardless, we have enough different sources to where we can find the information we are looking for.

American TV is biased in the same the way that most media outlets in the US are and that is liberal. Until recently how many reports or articles did you see or read about "Pro Troops Rallies" almost none. And If we are going to call one an Anti-War Rally, lets call the other one a Pro War Rally and stop playing word games.

Are you positive on that the US media were liberally biased in the last months ?

The network media is as liberal as it has ever been.
Brokaw, rather than being a professional journalist, displayed his true colors once more by referring to the president as "Mr." Bush.

CNN is trying to fight off the image of being ultra-liberal as Fox News is stomping a mudhole in its butt. Even while alot of the country has resisted offering viewers Fox News station, it has still costed CNN big bucks.

MSNBC, a newtork that has been losing big bucks with its lousy programming has fired Donahue and hired Michael Savage, a firebrand that is neither Republican or Democrat, but an honest to goodness tell-it-like-it-is conservative without the politics. That change signals they are trying to garner the viewers' business, and it is indicative of how the American opinion is.

MSNBC, a newtork ....


Ok, you're referring to the three companies im also referring to. Aside from featuring sporadically interesting personalities, the choices in the news coverage (if it is reflected by their web sites) would be seen as right-wing in europe.

Perhaps its just our different perspectives.

No, Karl, the websites really do suck. Not that I like the coverage, either, but their websites aren't that good.
Sorry about that, but they still don't understand that theyare expected to compete in an open market. The fact that cable and satelite exists hasn't seemed to have dawned on the three major networks, yet.

Yes...Simply because if those reporters happen upon a well-informed protester, the media corp can so easily & conveniently "edit them out" of the final broadcast, if they want to make a distinctive impression that *all* protesters are ignorant of the facts.
It's the technique referred to as "putting a spin" on the news.

MD's right. You're seeing ill informed protestors because that's all your meant to see.

doubt that there are plenty of protesters who are extremely educated about the issues....

However, I'd place bets on the majority of actual picketters being similar to those described in the news above....

Loved the first little illustrative joke BTW, hehe....
