Terrorism will exist as long as certain conditions exist.

So what if they are? Let the UN deal with all that... oh but wait... let's go to war and show how to be a democracy

Excerpt from an article, "Bin Laden's Wasted Warning" by Margaret Kimberly that I find relevant.

...The press, the clergy and political leadership should help us understand humanity in every part of the world. Instead they make us more ignorant. As a result, Americans are living in a bubble that grows thicker and more obscure by the day. It would be difficult for even the most enlightened nation to listen to the man who killed 3,000 of their fellow citizens. It is impossible for most Americans.

In his latest message Bin Laden did more than taunt us and tell us we are all sitting ducks. He makes simple and reasonable requests of our country. Get the U.S. military out of the Arab and Muslim world, stop torture in Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib and stop killing his people.

It is wrong for America to occupy Iraq. It was wrong to kill the citizens of Afghanistan because it was Osama's hideout and it isn't wrong to say so just because Osama bin Laden says the same thing.

It was wrong to kill in New York and Washington on 9/11, but it was also wrong to kill in Fallujah. Dead is dead. Death is no better or worse in one part of the world than it is in another. My life is not more valuable than an Iraqi's. That is why I ask my leaders to stop killing Osama's people. That is the message Americans need to hear.

It amazes me that you still defend these terrorists, who are protesting, setting fire to buildings and demanding the beheading of people all for cartoons. Their anger at these cartoons isn't rooted in these people's poverty, it's rooted in their fanatical ideology. They seem to think they rule the world and can tell the nations of the world what to do. I am hoping we send a clear message they do not.

Dead is dead? I am guessing you do not believe in killing in self-defense.

Peace....

It seems you missed the point of the article. I'm not defending terrorists and neither is the writer. She clearly states that the killing in 9/11 was wrong. Jeezus, I was a few miles away when it happened. Saw the smoke and smelled the stench. I won't ever be the same. But I can feel this way, despise what terrorists did and do, without needing to lash back at innocent people. And I can listen to Osama's message to see if he has valid points. This does not mean I think his wrath is ok.

Would I kill in self-defense? I have no idea how I would react if someone was in my face trying to kill me. But our having a war in Iraq is not self-defense.

If I went and killed one hundred American citizens, including women and children, would you take a minute to stop hunting me down, let alone stop and LISTEN to my demands???

Should we have negotiated with Son of Sam or Ted Bundy or any other American murderers? Then why do you wish to even LISTEN to this madman who not only has killed thousands of Americans but finances the killing of many other innocents in Israel and beyond.

You wish to negotiate with a mass murderer and stop killing "his people". His people are terrorists, some of whom orchestrated the event which you said causes you to never be the same.

You prefer the mass murderer's points over those of our own President and side with the murderer. I have tried to be civil during this conversation, but frankly, people like you make me ill.

Some last few words of advice: Read the Senate Transcripts. Perhaps it will provide new insight into your thinking.

This conversation is over.

Peace...

Making you feel ill was not my intent, and I feel no ill will towards you. Misunderstood, yes. And I do think it is mean what you wrote above and it would have been nice for you to keep that to yourself.

Hope to "see" you in other threads and that you can leave this one behind you.

I think urbancurl is right on point - I've been saying that for years.
