I was just trying help people understand the pure stupidity of this. For those who just didn't understand the why. Just read my posts and you'll get it!

It's sad but that's the way it is
Dude are you saying that you posts were Stupid, that Terrorism is stuipid or both? Cause I wondoring which I agree with here.

All well and good in a video game...

Politicians don't care, they'll do what they think will make them look good now. If it means more trouble later, that's someone else's problem.

It's simple. Once the Planet is hurt, it gathers Spirit Energy to heal the injury. The amount of energy gathered depends on the size of the injury...What would happen if there was an injury that threatened the very life of the Planet? Think how much energy would be gathered! Ha, ha, ha. And at the center of that injury, wil be me. All that boundless energy will be mine. By merging with the energy of the Planet, I will be come a new life form, a new existence. Melding with the Planet, I will cease to exist as I am now. Only to be reborn as a 'God' to rule over every living soul.

No, my post were not stupid. My post represent the way that a terrorist would think (or at least how I would think if I was a terrorist). The bottom line is that terrorism,just like war,is really stupid and there's not way to prevent it or to cure it but to kill every body. Which is of course totaly inhuman.

Don't worry, I'm not a "bad guy" I'm a good guy trying to make understand the bad guy mentality to others.

Mind you, logicaly, ethicaly and professionnaly, shoothing down any hijacked commercial airliner flying over the US today would have been the proper course of action to save lives. It would have taken someone with really cold feelings to give the order but it's an order that should be given.

Yes Billikins I am prepared for casaulties. I am a former Marine. I have no doubts they are ready to go right now. They may not be called upon but I can assure you they are ready. A MAU is one of the highest trained units in the Marine Corps. BTW we are bombing Afghanistan RIGHT NOW BRB

Not within the next few weeks. They are expecting retaliation. They'll be waiting for you. If you send someone in, they'll make sure to keep one or two survivors to return home and act as propaganda... the rest will be in body bags.

Bomb the camp a few time over the next few weeks then, 4-6 months from now, send in the pros to cut the troaths... but again, that will not solve the problem. It will only rassasiate public opinion.

Woopss my bad, I meant the ideals within your post ie bombing them- which I think was just happened- were stupided Ideals.
But I have to say shooting the planes down would of been the right course, but it would of only work if there was a warning and if they weren't over a city at the time.
