Darth Taxi;4215640No, I didn't explained it because I was really glad you didn't understand it, I didn't have to stand against any argument;). Btw no random children but children that live in the city which is under taliban's protection...those boys probably had dreams about how will they lay their lifes for the greater good one day. And about what support are you talking about? There probably was a speech of overlord about how coalition is sinful, that taliban will protect them from the evil and so on. It's like with real ortodox christian who will tell you that bones of dinosaurs were put into soil so the god could try their faith:p. Well what I mean is that it is different mentality which you haven't lived with so you can not know how will they behave, and what would they think If coalition came and told them that overlord is evil. Before you ask no I haven't neither. But I would really like to see opinion of someone who was there and is not on any side.

What do you think the point of the war is? If you simply assume that every 15 year old is already a lost cause, about to go off to fight the Americans with the local Taliban, and abandon any hope of winning their support, where does it leave you? How else can you "win" that particular war? Genocide? The USA could employ far more effective means of fighting if the objective was to eliminate any and every potential Taliban recruit.

Sadly you're right. You can not just put every child under brain reconstruction and remember that they weren't raised in any liberal methods. Yes there are kids that could be bought but which are those? Yeah and read The Prince, it describes how war and politics are waged. Genocide is a salvation but reputation is to be decreased rapidly, why do you think America is hated so much? War is an instrument for achieving goals but it is the easy way which makes you pay dearly in blood, reputation or finance at least. Diplomacy rules:beer:.

I'm sorry? What do you mean, "bought"? Am I right in thinking you are of the opinion that every middle eastern child is born a terrorist, and must be "bought" out of it or be subjected to "brain reconstruction"?

I have read The Prince, but the question here is if the end really does justify the means. Does establishing your reputation as an invading power who will kill anyone that stands in it's way justify the elimination of a warlord? You could always leave and come back to attempt an assassination again...

Also, could you rephrase your comments about genocide in the last few lines? I'm not sure I understand what you're talking about.

I never said every child there is terorist, their preachers are putting into their heads that america is great evil I don't say there aren't normal children. They just don't believe the same thing as you do. Bought = promises would make child not helping terorists. Brain reconstruction means that children will not just come to the other side because you showed them light you have to rebuild basically. It's similiar as if nazis won the war and wanted all the people to become nazis, hope you get my point (im not saying anyone is a nazi). To the other part read some of my posts I wrote the same thing about retreating from assasination. To genocide, it is a way how to win a war but everyone would protest everyone would be angry. Nazis did it you hate them, America droped the nuclear bombs cold war and hatred started, America dropped napalm and hippies were pissed. Hope you got it right now. Yeah, and don't be sorry;). And don't be hard on me or I ll cry:bawl:.

Genocide is not a way to win a war, it's a way to end a war. No one "wins" when the result is an astronomical financial effort that led to a humanitarian catastrophe. Machiavelli was a madman.

Thx for being my reinterpreter;). Sometimes the things I write seem like having double meaning, too much beer:beer: I guess.
