You know, George, it is really not so difficult to gain an excellent insight into "the horrors of the war against terror " simply from reading one's daily newspaper, by simply following the news.
And from gaining further insights & information from the variety of legitimate news resources online.
but and as to:
it is hardly considerate of you and the others whom Tyco has characterized as a "bunch of leftists" to gather on this thread to express your opposition. Has it occurred to you that some others may find all this a bit shrill, self-righteous and hypocritical?
Since when has any
A2K thread not been a matter for open discussion?
Maybe what you describe as "opposition" is simply the genuine views that many posters hold?
You say you are concerned about what some (American, I presume) A2Kers might consider " shrill, self-righteous and hypocritical" reactions on this thread.
Considering the contents some of your
posts in the past (not so much recently) , I find your concern for the sensitivity others quite interesting.
Go back & read what I
have actually posted here (given that you have addressed this comment to me
) & tell me exactly what I
have posted which is offensive to "a very large number of people in this country". Meaning the US, of course.
I am perfectly happy to have a discussion about anything
I've posted here with you, George.
But tell me, is it more offensive for a person outside
the the US to comment on a public forum about a "sensitive" US matter?
If you go back to the start if this thread, George, you will read posts from US A2Kers which were possibly more critical than later non-US posters' views.
Are you going to berate them
, for their "shrill, self-righteous and hypocritical" posts, too?
Is Tico calling them
"a bunch of leftists", too?
Or are your criticisms only directed at "foreigners"?
Or is it a case of: how dare we have an opinion on anything to do with US policies!
