> No offense to you personally but statements like this scare me.

[snip Eric's comments on trying to understand why someone would actively murder several innocent people interspersed with Rob J D's comments about a hypothetical Iraqi housewife or whatever the hell he was trying to say.]

Wait a sec. Eric is trying to understand why someone would launch a devestating murderous attack on civilians and you say that attempting to comprehend that mindset scares you? Your explanation by way of a hypothetical effect on an embargo does nothing to answer why "statements like [that] scares [you]".

> What happened to "Love your neighbor as yourself" and the Golden Rule "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you." We need a little more of this for a change.

Because they will kill more of us.

We loved our neighbor as ourselves for years and did unto others as we would have them to unto us for years. They responded by hijacking four airplanes and plowing them into downtown New York City the Pentagon and attempting to crash right into the White House.

If anything, we will do unto them as they would do unto us.
