    Re: Ms Wyyysoccer

    I do not believe any Americanis is favor of using overwhelming military might to kill innocent people. Also, I am sure the Red Cross is not a bleeding heart liberal organization. I have a great respect for the American Red Cross. They have helped my family tremendously in the last year. I would still like to know how you would deal with saddam and other terrorist around the world.

    • My posts on this board were solely meant to repudiate egregious remarks made by bowtie in post #5522. Specifically, bowtie advocated killing innocent people with bombs. I have a problem with that kind of sentiment, which is exactly why I have a problem with people like Osama Bin Laden.

      In your post you said: "I do not believe any Americanis is favor of using overwhelming military might to kill innocent people."

      Read post #5522 and see if you still think that's true.

      In answer to your question, I am in favor of dealing very harshly with terrorists, both at home and abroad. Unfortunately, bowtie (and subsequently others) used this forum to advocate actions that are terrorism by any dictionary's definition.

      In my opinion there's a reason why America is the greatest country on earth. It's because we stand for ideals such as freedom, democracy, rule of law - ideals that are wholly opposed to terrorism.

      • OK Wysee. I'll give you that AND stand corrected---SOMEWHAT. . .the abhorrent bombing of innocent civilains simply for the sake of bombing them is clearly not correct. Note: Im NOT saying it's wrong......and no I wont advocate it. I do like Bowtie's suggestion in one sense-however. I like the idea of slapping a 2000Lb. JADAM into the Homes of those 'innocents' who have harboured/raised/assisted terrorists to include but not be limited to Suicide bombers.This would include their families. They are more than willing but without the means to do so to us. Did you know...? Saddam was givin away bonuses to those families who sacrificed one of their own as a suicide bomber? Hmmm...this rings of selling yer kids for prostitution. Send a kid off to 'Heaven' and get rich!!! {yes Im going to throw up...}
        'innocent' or not - - that's NOT innocent.
        I definitely agree with Pick-up - and yeah - Ive been there.Mankind Is the cruelest animal on the face of this planet. I also have to still insist that we live in the free-est, greatest country on the face of the planet. And until these idiots started lobbing planes around - it's borders were open to them, too.

      • I don't undertsand your logic - you own the stock, but yourn disclosure is that you want to sell? I ask you again, my good man, what other investment do you have that is better than good old Branch Banking and Trust?

        Do you bank there? If so, you would not sell.

        RW - what have you been up to old man?
