    I wish the big terrorism thread I started (that was like a news update page) hadn't been deleted

    I remember that thread of yours Cheez. All the news servers here were totally swamped. I was in my office and had a good number of the development group crowded around as your updates were the only news we were getting.

    Historic thread.

    Then you read some of the knee jerk, racist stuff in the others and wonder I suppose.

    At the time, I was more shocked with the "you had it coming" attitude. No nation deserves to have civilians targeted and wiped out in that way.

    Unless they initiate, imo. For example, we didnt have it coming imo, but i do feel that THEY had it coming when we went over there and raised hell.

    those that are terrorists have it coming. But we do not target civilians who just happen to live in a country we disagree with. Big difference. Now WW2 was a different time. Our A-bomb attack is something we wouldn't do today.

    Point taken. This is one of the main reasons i feel the war is over oil and other non-9/11 related disputes, because we are targeting a country not individuals. Which is wrong.

    Oh so the tens of thousands of innocent civilians back then were less human because it was 60 years ago? In 60 years will September 11th, 2001 be okay in your books?

    Way better than the millions that would have been killed in a land invasion.

    Yup.

    edit: Here, I'll stop it. Brian, you're right. We never should have dropped the atomic bombs. In fact, I don't know why we even got into WWII in the first place. When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, we should have just said "Whoops, our bad" and moved Hawaii further away. We shouldn't even have an army, for we are AMERIKKKA and will misuse it to kill kittens, rape babies, and defile everything else that the rest of the world considers holy. I'm really sorry.
