I'm sorry, but when a group attacks civilians, women and children who aren't active in the military, then I really think you need to come down hard on that group. Because it's clear that they are inhuman and have no regard for the lives of innocents.
Well, does anyone actually know who they are or who their accomplices are?  This is the problem with most of these sorts of actions.  Information is needed to base action on.

After all, many of them still proport to enjoy tea-time, a clear sign of tacit agreement with the existance of empires.
Tea time is very enjoyable, don't you enjoy it?  Surely you like Gin and Tonic?  I love it.

*is drinking tea at present*

Tea-time is a clear mark of love for the enemy, and those who drink tea or gin should be incarcerated!

Gin may be excellent, but tonic is repugnant to all goodly men, and gin shall henceforth only be permitted in the form of a Singapore Sling, but preferance and respect should be given to those who consume tequila, especially tequila sunrises.

My god, they are so awesome.  It makes me think blissfully of Christmas, a day when I can watch the tele and drink Tequila sunrises unjudged by all.

The only people I know who really drink tequila are teenage, Jewish girls.

Real men drink the Sheridan Hotel version of the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. Eight clear spirits, cream and a touch of raspberry syrup. Awesome.

Singapore Sling?  Now we're getting into properly imperialist drinks, have you ever being to the Raffles Hotel?

If you don't approve of mixers with your Gin you might like this.

I find that it's generally drunk by teenagers too.  Normally after happy hour at a pub that doesn't check ID.  It should be reserved for making diamonds.

I don't like the sound of that.

Bad tequila is drunk by teenagers, good tequila is like good whiskey, a preferred beverage for educated drunkards looking to levy serious destruction on themselves.

I've heard that.  Unfortunately they don't sell good vintages of Tequila in Europe.

I get mine in Mexico when I can, they have one called Aha!  Toro! which I like to loosely translate to "Oh Fuck!  Bull!" with a magnetic top, so no screwing or being fancy with corks and such.  It feels like it was made for drunkards.  Last time I busted some out at a party I actually had some yoofs in attendance (19-20) who insisted on trying some.

It's quite funny when they realize that salt and lemon or lime will not save them from lead poisoning.  Kind of like when Vodka drinkers first try Russian Standard or a good polish potato(e) vodka they are left in shambles, sometimes for days.

Funny, i think in much the same way Heq does except that its the americans im interested in. This is funny because a lot of you are going to be very upset over it and call me all sorts of bad things, and yet investments from cynical outsiders is one of the things that will help fix your economy.

lol, don't you know that we liberals hate America? Tongue

Seriously, though, I doubt many people who live in the United States and visit this forum are going to be especially upset about some criticism of America. I could be wrong, of course, but its been my impression that pride in one's nation / culture tends to go hand-in-hand with a more conservative outlook.

You can have pride and still accept criticism.
