The Boss is in
And its not self defeating to bash the tactics of your own country by trying to paint the picture of us being a monster that tortures our enemies? You say its self defeating, by being self defeating.I want to get into you, if you know what I mean. :naughty: (No thread can stay un-gay forever)
Hate to use you here, McNuggets, but you said it yourself, and wraitherx is certainly hinting at it.
They viewed the innocent lives killed on 9/11 as a necessity. They justified it with their people and their religion by calling it a necessary evil. They tell the kids they strap these vests to that it's to fight for the greater good. They call us the evil empire. We called it the war on terrorism, but it was more like a petri dish of terrorism. The things we've done are what they point to and say "LOOK! We told you these are bad people!". It's self defeating when we stoop to their level.
This is going to be one of those events we look back on in 50 years and say "What the ****, man. Why?". We look back on the internment camps and own up to what a terrible mistake they were, but in the moment there were a strong majority of those who felt it was just "what had to be done". Hell, in the early 2000's after 9/11 we had people calling for new ones for the Muslims in this country. Why not, man? If we're tossing away our morals what does it matter?
I'd like to read your thoughts, wraitherx.
