    He claimed he was only carrying some fireworks from Wal-Mart.

    Found:
    One was charged with teaching the other how to use them.
    Our own forum guidelines have recently changed to address this and some other issues.

    We usually let the Norwegian pipe bombers off with only a warning...

    "Now you guys be careful out there with that dynamite! See you at the Nobel ceremony!"

    Uh-oh. Here we go.

    Disclaimer -- Cyrus is just trying to be funny here, and keep his banner for another year. He is also making a political statement, with his often-used ironic twist. Finally, he texted this in while flying his plane, so he could not post a longer explanation of what he meant. End of disclaimer.

    The trouble was caused by America itself. The terrorist themselves may be good to people in real life. But their spirit seems governed by something else. Nowhere safe , Terrorism is everywhere in the world. Dig a deep hole and hide yourself in it with enough food.

    The terrorist live among students because of students' powerful identity. Is there a terrorist ever reading this forum, I was wondering.

    "Real life"? And when exactly does that happen? After they're done shooting up people, or perhaps after they've blown up a handful of people along with themselves?

    Hmmmmm. Good people in real life but 'something else' in spirit... Could that be 'evil'?

    I mean in real life, you cannot see their other sides.In real life, the terrorist may not behave like a gang memeber does.
    I would say their "spirit stuff" is evil, but they won't think as what we think.
    They bomb themselves NOT because they like to do so. They "spirit stuff" (or maybe their leader force) force them to do so.

    Some people tend to think that terrorists are psychotic maniacs. Most of them aren't. The reason they do what they do is that they think they'll go to paradice when they die. Off course poverty is a factor as well, but these people wouldn't do what they do if they weren't brainwashed in school.

    I am not saying terrorists are psychotic maniacs AT ALL. tHEY HAVE A organization, which is America' enemy.

    I have told you that

    tHEY DO NOT LIKE TO DO so. They are forced to do so.

    You do not even know what this means?

    Are they willing to die? I am jsu saying what caused them to do so, which you should think over.

    Yes, many of them are willing to die. Their religion tells them that the martyr's death will send them to the highest level of paradice.

    You maybe only see one side of it.

    They may be encouraged to do so by believing in what you said. But I believe they have hate in their mind.

    Can you imagine one thing: Somebody will/or trying to kill your "GOD" who you trust forever, then what you will do then?

    This is straying too far off the OP's topic of the stupidity of tampering with explosives.
