Klaus

isn't that why I said IF we go to war....I'm talking about war...you wanna talk abou diplomacy that's a different thread.




as for a bomb being cool......as an engineer...the sheer amount of technology that is put into these bombs is phenominal....the fact that it is so precise and yet so powerful ...is quite impressive.

im slightly disturbed/surprised that someone of your intelligence would actually say something like this.

as for the entire discussion (not directed at dreadsox), i am also very disturbed of the common perception that iraqi lives are less important than american ones.

It is supposed to be used to clear large areas of land mines and as a psychological weapon used to convince forces to surrender. In Afghanistan, leaflets were dropped to warn people that the Daisy Cutter was being used to prevent unecessary loss of life. I am comfortable with my statement Thanks for the support of my intlelligence. I will now crawl back into the dark place and continue to not post.
