Respectfully I disagree....
I have to disagree with you here Witch King. Maybe I'm onl;y seeing one picture but....Many of these innocents struggle for livelyhood every day. Just to live. Thousands are streaming into Iran for refuge, and have been for a while now just for food. Iran has gotten to the point where it has had to close its boarders. Besides, it is hard to rise up agienst a government that controls all facets of the media. In case you haven't noticed Afganistan is in the middle of a dacades old civil war now. War ravages. Many of these innocents are just trying to live in a war torn country, rising up is not really an option.
What about the responsibility of these innocients as you call them? Do they have no responsibility in life? What about their responsibility to fight for human rights and to fight against the Taliban? Are you going to go over there and watch over them for the next 10 years and make sure they don't organize another terrorist organization?
I fully realize he ment tacticals. Or at least i hope he did! And I totally agree that if anyone nuked us we'd throw so many nukes at they would be dust right now. However, I do not think that we should, under any circumstance be the first one to use a weapon of mass destruction. Not only would it throw nearly all of world opinion agianst us but it would also make us TOTAL hypocrits.
Any country which tries to nuke the United States will themselfs
I do not blame them at all. Besides the fact that most germans, both who approved and who didn't, did not know about what was truely happening to the Jews. Furthermore, it isn't exactly easy to rise up, especially in small numbers agienst a facsism. There were Germans who did rise up, many were carried off by the SS, many even turned in by their own brain washed children. No I do not blame the germans now, nor the ones who did have anything to do with the holocaust. Howeverm, I am loose on my defnition of doing nothing. If they had a chance to do something, to truely do something and didn't, I may be tended to lean towards "passive approval" and thereby guilt.
So the german citizens who did not like what was hapening to the Jewish race but did Nothing were also inocent. NO they were not.
let's not be the death of eachother PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it must be 5 billion years from now when we have no choice and the sun explodes......... PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
