This is going to be just the political tool that America and Israel have been looking for to really rain all hell down upon Anti-US and Anti-Israel countries and organizations. Remember that the USA recieves alot of it's power from the subjugation of foreign nations (and getting special access to their oil). "Anti-terrorism" might as well be "Destroy-all-those-actively-opposed-to-us-holding-influence-in-their-countries-ism" now. The shit is going to hit the fan, this is only the beginning. Let's hope the leaders can keep their heads here and don't keep the cycle of murder running at full speed.
that makes some sense
it fits my theory as well, you just widened my view man!
we NEED to hear debates on different sides at time like this! thank you for your contribution

you don't have to give me a Mod, but if you feel there is a moral need for such an action, then by all means, Memnoch, DON'T hold back!

anyway, some truth be told here:

I always felt "what the hell is wrong with this guy? so cocky!"

then as time past by, I truely saw how he as a moderator maintained the order and most importantly "mutual respect" of this community (should I call this a community? ) anyway, what I see is personal strength, intelligence, dutyful and self-respect here.

you have my respect, Memnoch, and be proud to have you represent us!
Thanks, 250, you're the first person who ever said that to me. It can be a thankless job sometimes but your words are very much appreciated. You've come along in massive leaps and bounds since you first made your way to our community, and we're proud to have you with us, mate!

IMO, this would not serve anything but to infuriate even more those anti-US groups.

Sorry I meant bring the perpetrators to justice not impose out style of Western Justice on countries that don't want it.

Mem's in my experience and in reading the different threads on this board, It would appear to me that the ones most loudly decrying their maturity level are frequently the ones most lacking in said quality... Just my thoughts on the issue.
