Try to have a nice day....and loosen up a bit.And what part of their JIHADIST rants do you not understand? When they SAY you are an imperialistic pig that must be killed, that to you is only a "complex problem"? So, the discussion moves beyond "they hate freedom"? Labelling us imperialistic is a rather complex issue, is it not? Unless you agree with them, then there is a discussion about the definition of imperialism, and interpretation of our actions against that definition. Getting a little complex isn't it? Your word, not mine.
This isn't a situation where you are allowed your miranda rights...they have no concept of that 'right'.
Ever tried to 'discuss' or attempt to 'reason' with a grizzley about your wanting to 'understand' him better? So then you can resolve why it believes all you own is his, as well as all the land he travels over is his too. No, but I've tried to reason with right wing-nuts on this list, and met with the same frustrations, although the bear likely has some type of self-serving logic behind his actions.
Unlike you, when someone makes it their 'religion' to kill me, I have a hard time believing I stand a chance to 'reason' with them. It's sorta like you trying to convince me you are an independant, while praising the current administration and it's band of crooks and ignoramuses, and promoting the Democrat issues. Please cite an example. I do recall voicing frustration with this administration's continuation of Bush's large-gov't, deficit spending policies. There are some democratic issues I support, as well as some republican, but unless you can cite examples of me "praising the current admin and it's crooks and ingos", I'll just have to heap your words on the ever-growing heap of misrepresentations and false assumptions.
Your 'spots' won't change any more than the towelheads views of my right to life. Our difference lies in the fact I believe them, and take them at their word. You, like most libs, don't think they are serious in their proclamations, and believe you can 'reason' with them. What exactly do you mean by "towelheads"? Taliban? Arabs? Prince Bandar? Indian Sikhs? Sisters of certain convents? All Muslims? How about General Abizaid--4-star general and commander of US CENTCOM? Hey, I think even Mother Theresa wore a towel around her head a few times. Whew! You paint with a broad brush! Wagner power painter even.
What's sad is how unprotected those around you are. You and other libs with your views, will continue to think we can make them understand our way of life, even after they have killed off those we love. God help your family if one of these perverts ever decide to make your home the object of their next 'message'. Again, more false assumptions to heap on the pile. One comment on something you said though....I don't think, nor do I WANT to make anyone else understand my way of life. Many many wars and millions of lives have been lost due to that frame of mind. I grew up with friends that were Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, and Hindu. Since being in the Army and medicine, I've made friends who are also Muslim. I don't try to convert them, they don't try to convert me. (Except for the Assembly of God friend, who thought speaking in tongue would convince me to convert. Instead, I offered him some Valium and anti-seizure medicine) I've learned it's easier to accept people for who they are, and not try to make everyone conform to MY religion or belief.
