Anyone who commits acts of terror has very different Ideals than me
There's a difference between the goals of terrorists, and the actions they think are acceptable to pursue those goals. If you believe (for example) that the U.S. should leave Iraq, or Israel should remove the settlers from the West Bank, then you accept causes for which people are committing terrorist acts, even though you may not accept that the causes should be pursued through terrorism. That is the sort of situation I was referring to.Smurf said:Anyone who commits acts of terror has very different Ideals than me

Doesn't war sound so much more acceptable than terrrorism? Or should I say doesn't terrorism sound so much worse than war? War against Iraq doesn't sound as bad as American Terrorism upon innocent civilians in Iraq. You hit upon a point in the language. War is worse in the sense that it is unnecessary like the war in Iraq. This language tells us the American mass do no follow the physics of war being worse, but the emotion/tied to the psychological propoganda is what they are sensing. They believe in their minds war is less, but physics tells us the war Bush started is much more terror and overall. I'm ashamed, I'm among good people, but they are victims of a huge rate of stupidity which makes this murder and theft possibel by Bush.
I’m sorry about your affliction but what does it have to with an anti-war stance?Smurf said:I'm a passifist though, so no matter what they're fighting for I'm still against it.
