Obviously no thought has been given to the feelings of George Bush's family.

Appeals to sentimentality are a poor basis for discussion.

I think we've invaded far more countries that don't have oil.

This is how you do it.

On the whole, gang, this sort of stuff betrays a worrying lack of pragmatism. One can worry about the 'wrong messages' until the cows come home. The fact remains that, innocent or guilty as charged, the man concerned will apparently die soon. In prison or in his country of origin. Nobody now dead will be brought back to life.

That is my first and last word on the subject.

40 Civilians killed today in Afghanistan by a US airstrike, what about their families ? I'm sure we're not in a hurry to hand over those responsible.

yes, but, like torture, we only bomb people because we have to.

The Germans called in that strike. War is hell, flying home from London shouldn't be.

One person's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter.

George Washington is a prime example.

No I guess Germany isn't at war with Afghanistan, they just have troops fighting there. News flash, we're not at war with Afghanistan either, we're on their team.

There is good reason that flight got shot down, you don't seem to be able to tell the difference between wartime confusion and intentional bombing of civilians.

You support the Lockerbie bombing then?

No, I don't.

But I get a real kick out of the hypocrisy and double standards.

Well it's not exactly the same sort of situation. By far.
