allie kiwi BS: Bush's speech (116* d) RE: BS: Bush's speech 20 Sep 01


I apologise for coming across as insensitive. But beleive me, we are just as afraid as you of war. and it looks scarily like no-one in power over there is considering anything BUT war.

How about looking at other options?

Instead of War, the USA should put money into the economies that prodiced these terrorists. we do not have a one country to fight - there are people from Lebanon, there are people from Afghanistan. There is also the United Arab Emirates. do we bomb them all? If we kill Bin Laden, 100 more will rise to fill his martyred shoes. And beleive me, and a martyr he will become.

What is a fundamentalist? what produces a terrorist is what we should be asking. Why did they hate so much? what can we do to prevent it?

I do not like war... people who often fight believe strongly so much in something that the others equally strongly oppose. You cannot do the same back to people - it makes you as evil. So if Bush goes in guns blazing and kills a lot of civilians, he will be just as bad - worse even, because he had a choice

That is my simplistic view.

I am sorry if I offend.

Allie
