RE: Ha! [font size=1" color="#FF0000]LAST EDITED ON Oct-21-01 AT 02:09PM (GMT)[p]Thank you Xotor. And Kharn, EVERYTHING that you've said in this thread (except for your first statement) has been contraditory of every other post that I've read from you since the attacks. Things are a little different when it hits close to home. If this had happened in Belgium, and one of us rotten pig-f*cker Americans had said that Belgium had this coming due to it's foreign policy (or lack there of) you'd get a bit pissed. I think we are doing the right thing here; if there wasn't some other country around like the US, then they would focus their attention elsewhere, say like Britain. No Britain? How about Germany? No Germany? Hey, I got it; BELGIUM! I'm not saying that we are doing some noble thing by letting these attacks be brought to bear against us alone, stoically doing this so other countries don't have to, like some paragon of virtue, but those attacks where a slap to the face of this great nation (notice how I said "great nation", not "greater nation than any other"). Let's break this down on a personal level, using people instead of countries or idealogies; If someone slapped you in the face, what would you do? "Did we give up when the GERMAN'S bombed Pearl Harbor?" BTW, if you're trying to get past this anti-American thing that you were apparently raised with, you're losing that fight.
