Dano, he didn't twist your words at all, you called him a coward. You said, in talking to Z edge, "...your cowardice is sad". Also, z edge never said you were trying to dismantle the website. He said you were trying to stir up trouble. There's a difference.

Calling z_edge a coward is far too extreme and, ultimately, unfair, Dano.

The main thing I have against radicals, is that they have radical notions. Z_edge is not only a well-balanced mind and a thoughtful being, but he is far from a coward, atleast, not the coward you made him out to be in your provocative posts. I don't see the point to them, except you trying to look for trouble.

z_edge was not cowardly in his posts, and your posts only served to provoke him.

I agree with Diamond, 80s, Anthony and Spiral_Staircase and, yes, z edge. The "cowardness" comment was inappropriate. Several friends of mine have served in the military, and their duties are/were far more risky than posting behind a computer screen.

And, incidentally, I do not think that our government knew in advance of the 9-11 attacks, although it would make for a great movie or David Koresh/Timothy McVeigh/Ted Kozinski or what-ever-goofball theory.

having evidence that the attacks might occur...and knowing they will happen are two different things.

Z edge...thanks for serving our country, you are a true american. If I wasn't a wuss I'd do the same.

Anthony, Bama, and Arun
Thanks for your support and kind posts. Those were extra kind words from you and I do appreciate that.

And I'm no hero either guys, I hope you understand that. I served in the military, like hundreds of thousands-heck millions of people do. I do bring it up from time to time, and on a public forum like this it alwasy causes me an inner conflict of sorts.

I know a lot of people in the military now-whether they realize it or not- are hurt by the fact that they stood for and protected their respective countries when stuff like 9/11 happened. Dosen't it seem like we fucking failed by allowing this to happen? I feel that way a lot. I bet the Bushes do too, probably Clinton as well.

How could you not, to some extent?

Well thanks again guys.

But to say that they or Bush...LET it happen.....is ridiculous. Personally...what happened on 9-11 was the fault of crappy airport security, and, poor preparation. The press likes to sell newspapers, and if they can spin a story to do it..they'd step over their moms to do it.
I bet you also believe that Oswald acted alone

I WANT to believe that the government did not allow this to happen. I WANT to believe that there are no government conspiracies, and I'd love it if the government is as wholesome and pure and loving and just as perfect as you like to believe it is.*Pats poor innocent Arun on the head and smiles condescendingly*

You used to tell me that i was "too violent", and that you were a pacifist. You used to condemn the military. I had to defend them, and point out how wrong you were. I told you that one day, you would feel differently. I didnt know it would happen so soon, and i didnt know it would take the deaths of thousands of innocent Americans to wake you up. How sad.
Now you are a flag waver just like the rest of us, and sometimes even say postive things about the military. Wow. People change.
Glad to see you have, I just think it would be nice if you understood that loving your country is one thing. But blind devotion, is another.

Look...look what you've done to me...You've made me poor and infamous, and I thank you...

I've always been a flag waver....and just cos I make fun of the military gusy you like...doens't mean I dont' respect them.

I'm a flag waver now????


what happened when I gave Bono the american flag back in october??? What about my america appreciation thread back a few months ago????? I jumped on a band wagon??????.....I live in this country too...and I respect it. And in truth...I think I take offense to the fact that you question the sincerity of the love of my country

I'm not talking about the jokes. The jokes were...ok...Pissed me off, but thats not what i was referring to.
You seemed to hate the military, didnt even care much when those pilots were killed at Pt Mugu recently.
You dont care about the needy people in America. All you talk about is how great everyone has it here, and its only people in other countries who suffer. That doesnt really show love for your country, when you ignore and downplay the severity of the problems it has.
Ive heard you say other not-so-loving stuff about this country as well.
And the things you said about the military...offended ME greatly.

Just because I dont' get emotional when pilots are killed doesn't mean I dont' care. And just because I am peace loving and dont' like the fact that the military has so much power in today's affairs doens't mean I dont' respect the job they do...and I dont' care about the needy in america??? just because I think that the aidscrisis in africa is more important???? that's for me to decide


Do I have some fun at the expense of the military sometimes..yes...but not anymore than they would have at me for being a "weakass bitch"...army recruiters words...not mine


Also...I've been more than an avid protector of america on this forum. do a search for my posts in this forum..and read them

And i agree 100% that it was also poor airport security,and poor preparation, and the sheer stupidity of a lot of people.
