What are you trying to get out of this? Whats your angle?

Its hard to hypothesize with that because its just not something in the realm of U.S. possibilities to do something like that. What is it that you really want to know? Why are you trying to twist it around? It doesnt make sense to me.

Dude, if it were the other way around, the US would only do it with just cause, you know that! What are you asking??

BTW, if the US would have attacked Afganastan prior to the WTC attack, they would have had every right to on the grounds of crimes against humanity.

Your playing devils advocate here and that's fine, but take a look at who your supporting with your hypothetical question.

The Taliban holds public exicution for such things as, women working, or going to school, people creating art, taking pictures, broadcasting, speaking out against the Taliban.

You seem to have this idea in your head that the Taliban, who conrol 95% of Afganastan, are not as horrible as the US is saying, and that's wrong. Maybe you should talk to the people of Afganastan who have family members burried in mass graves, or to the parants of children who have been raped over and over again.
I really don't think you have a clue about who these people are dude!

Let's pretend for a moment. If some crazy Americans killed 6000+ in Afghanistan, the Afghan people would be angry. They'd realize that an act of war had been commited on thier soil. They immediately start burning Americans in ephagy, and try to find some way to strike back and keep such a disaster from happening to them again.

And they'd kill teenagers that show insolence and speak out without appreciation.

We don't do that here, which you should be thankful for.

I agree with seenbad, I can't imagine we'd hijack a plane. If a bunch of turds from our country were to, though... I'd fully expect a response, militarily, from Afghanistan.

The bastards that have committed this act are not "freedom fighters." Although, I don't believe that you were arguing that they were.

WTF? Looks like someone pulled an "Eyes of the Night" maneuver here.

From what I can see, Sleepless Nights was stirring some shit? Keep in mind, guys, that S.N. proudly proclaimed once in another thread that morality is of no interest to him. So, who is he to even comment on the subject? Also, he's a KID; entering that charming age when he feels the need to rebel, and do so passionately, controlled by hormones rather than reason.

At least he could have left his thread up instead of deleting it.

No, this is just a dumb thread started by a teen that has absolutely no appreciation for all that he has and will receive because he is an American Citizen......yet.

SN, all I can think of saying to you is I hope that some day you realize that its sometimes better to truly think things through before taking a stand and letting your voice be heard on something you dont fully grip. Its ok to be quiet until you understand. smilies/wink.gif I'm sure you will end up doing just that as you mature, your already excercising your mental capacity just by thinking about these things at a fairly early age. The next step is actual comprehension. You will make it, and hopefully end up an appreciative adult living in a *hopefully* still safe and productive land (you understand thats not a guarentee right? Might actually have to protect that at times) and you will know that blood was shed to make it that way FOR YOU. Preservation of that requires the same methods of gaining it sometimes, sadly. Welcome to the preservation of things you will some day appreciate. smilies/smile.gif Hopefully you will come to the point soon, where you are embarassed by your own words and realize how shallow and poorly thought out they were, and appreciate how we have choosen to preserve our rights as americans rather than take a stance that spits in the face of them. I think you will (hope), hell, you already like Van Halen, thats a good start. I'm not talking specifically about this thread of course, but of things you have posted previously as well. Obviously some things havn't been too popular. Theres a reason for that. I hope you take this as constructive critisism and learn from it. Tell me to fuck off if you feel you need to stand up for yourself, but do yourself the favor of trying to comprehend what I'm saying to you afterwards.

No, what it means is that, now that you're legally an adult, I can put a good ole fashion ass-whoopin' an your silly, skinny, bicycling butt. smilies/wink.gif smilies/tongue.gif


Sleepless Nights - children should be seen and not heard. Now go to your room and break open your World History text book and study -hard!

No, it just makes you ask dumb questions. smilies/tongue.gif

Some peoples immaturity is obvious. Others like yourself either mature quickly, or have a little sense on things like this. Not sure if that sense is simply a blessing or something instilled by the way you grew up, but it doesnt matter. I know you have some reservations about how this is all being handled, but, at least you go about stating your stance in a way thats....not like SN.

Cappice? Or should I break it down to your ignorant teenage head one more level? smilies/wink.gif (just kidding)

Just realized SN deleted his posts. No need to continue this. Closing.
