Not a single one of these is an oxymoron....although taking this post into consideration, I'd have to say you were quite a spectacular oxymoron ;)

crystal cola -- stretching it a bit
sonic boom -- ditto
oil well -- wells normally have water, oil is opposite of water(in my mind at least)
synthetic wood -- dang, what was i thinking?
fiberglass -- this is an oxymoron, isn't it? fiber and glass are two opposite things, but put together they mean something different

Didn't see that one coming a mile away... I will neither confirm nor deny its accuracy... Course, I haven't heard of many people trying to destroy Denver because they think Colorado should be its own country...

I don't care about Ireland, I believe they should do what they want.

BUT
United states - Hawaii? that is hardly united to the states.

it doesn't mean PHYSICALLY united.... and if you're going to pick on our physical unity, you better include Alaska...

United states, they always shoot each other there.

More people die in America from shooting each other than northern ireland, and that's a war.

Great Britain refers to it's size [when we had the british empire with canada, australia, america etc] It has nothing to do with praise.

That's what we like to call "population control"... and how can you compare us to Northern Ireland? Do you have any sense of size relations? Despite the fact that they are having a war....

It's not technically a war, but it seems like one, they have cease fires and whatnot.

Damn skippy!



Right Brian...Ireland is just a teensy bit smaller than the US if you hadn't figured that out, not to mention that the UK has some islands as well...(they're not all deserted, y'know :rolleyes: )

>>Course, I haven't heard of many people trying to destroy Denver because they think Colorado should be its own country...<<

Wait...Denver is in Colordado...why are people destroying themselves to liberate themselves there, cheez? :p

Ok, about the Northern Irish conflict (I'm English by the way)......

The terrorists you talk of are the IRA. They are catholics originating from the Republic of Ireland (Eire or southern Ireland) which is a completely different country. So it's not the british blowing up the british. It's the IRA blowing up the british, no different in effect than Al Quada (sp?) blowing up the americans. The situation is very similar when you consider that the IRA believe they are fighting for the rights of catholics who they believe are being treated as second class citizens by the British. Much like Al Quada fights for what it believes is the persecution of arabs and in particular muslims by America's foreign policy.

One thing I would say though is that the IRA would not be able to blow up the british if their militant organisation wasn't funded by American businessmen. We certainly don't fund Al Quada.

Except that the Al Qaeda didn't blow up part of New York because they wanted to annex it.

> Why hasn't anybody mentioned "Rap Music"...?

Damn, that's a good one.... Wish I had thought of it.

Very educational, Mr. Fitlike...

Yeah, I figured that when the world decided to have a "war on terror" that, you know, the same old terrorist acts that has been plaguing the world would at least get nervous. Seems like same old same old for the two biggest conflicts (UK and Israel/Palestine). *sigh* So what exactly are we all doing?

Any words like 'terrorist' and 'freedom fighter' are entirely subjective.

Attacking civilians violently for a political statement. Seems pretty straight forward to me. Don't even start to say that terrorism isn't a threat and that what we should really do is disarm, that isn't even related to terrorism. Unless you plan on going into UK, Ireland, and the entire middle east, disarm everyone there, and plan to get out alive.

Terrorism = everyone loses. I don't get how anyone can justify it so nonchalantly.

Anyway, I don't really care who loses face over this, certainly not any of our agencies that failed to prevent 9/11. Some heads ought to roll and the government(s) should not settle back into BSness as usual.

*sigh* It's late.
