    That's the oldest lame ass excuse in the book.

    "Hey, I have friends who are ...."

    Just watch what you say.

    And just for the record, THEY ARE NOT BEING MISTREATED!!!

    Yeah Wormie ... Taliban football is totally in accordance with the Geneva convention ... which by the way the US are not enacting , by claiming the prisoners are NOT prisoners of war

    You wanna know why we're not giving them back to you? Cause your laws say you'll line up against a wall and shoot them and we're not done with them yet. You can have your blood bath in a couple weeks. Be patient!

    they aren't being mistreated. And they are'nt prisoners of war. They are terrorists. Who will kill themselves if they could take anyone down with them.

    And Mat, let it drop. Before I lose my cool. You sound like Enoch Powell.

    It really doesn't matter what the American population thinks. They're British citizens and unless they're tried in a world court, we can't do anything with them.

    Why didn't John Walker get taken to the base with the others?

    Cause the powers that be are making an example out of him. Plus, he's an American citizen.

    IMO if it's a 'war' against terror then those guys are prisoners of 'war'.

    However, if I'm wrong please let our PM know so we can pull our soldiers out of Afghanistan. Though I think they'll be a bit peeved since they thought there was actually a 'war' going on all this time.

    WTC died = 3,200 ish
    Afgan died = 3,700 (conservative estimate)

    edit: the afgan figure only includes people who died from bombing straight ut, not people who died from their injures. (as of about mid-january). Including those that have died of starvation etc

    Plus this figure dosent include taliban + al queeda who died (10,000 if all carpet bombing went to plan, but they are the ones who was in western eyes the ones supposed to die)

    Actually WTC deaths is around 6,000 in total now they are fully accounting everyone who was listed as "missing"...

    we have turned it into a politcal thread about the wrongness of bombing the feck out of innocent civilians.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/comment/story/0%2C3604%2C621931%2C00.html

    wheres your 6000 figure? that probably included all the people who were counted more then once?

    JJF - you're quoting the Guardian. I wouldn't believe anything they wrote even with a gun to my head...

    //jjf takes out his gun.

    sorry sholdnt start using american tactics.

    //jjf puts his gun down.

    Fair enough if you dont believe a word the gurdian says, but you have got to admit that 3,700 lifes is still bleeding loads for americans "precision" bombing.

    Or as i call it "bomb every house till its flat"

    Well I've done some stuff with a man...

    dodges rotten fruit from everyone

    Oh and I have 2 pillows now, but I used to sleep with 4 and an extra duvet under them. 2 pillows would be placed perpendicular to each other, to allow for major snuggleness

    Actually, I need new pillows

    It's 6:30 and I would so greatly love to be wrapped up in my flannel feeted pjs, buried under my sheets, two blankets and comforter surrounded by six pillows.

    sigh

    So sweet. Ah well, just four more hours and I can indulge myself.
