Does anyone agree with the President on this?
Is it acceptable for Colin Powell to think?
Is it acceptable for you to think?

...Q Thank you, Mr. President. Mr. President, former Secretary of State Colin Powell says the world is beginning to doubt the moral basis of our fight against terrorism. If a former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and former Secretary of State feels this way, don't you think that Americans and the rest of the world are beginning to wonder whether you're following a flawed strategy?
THE PRESIDENT: If there's any comparison between the compassion and decency of the American people and the terrorist tactics of extremists, it's flawed logic. I simply can't accept that. It's unacceptable to think
that there's any kind of comparison between the behavior of the United States of America and the action of Islamic extremists who kill innocent women and children to achieve an objective, Terry.
My job, and the job of people here in Washington, D.C., is to protect this country. We didn't ask for this war....

All the Prez said was that it is unacceptable to think that there is any comparison between behavior of the US and terrorists . . . and I agree with that. Even people who disagree with the war have to be able to see that this is correct. Correct? :wink2:
He isn't saying Colin Powell isn't allowed to think.
I thought this was a great speech.
[/QUOTE]If he didn't mean "It's unacceptable to think" why in the world did those words come out of his mouth?
Is he saying Colin Powel may think unless he thinks something the President interprets to mean something unacceptable?
I think that before starting a war a person SHOULD THINK!
Think about the fact that innocent people are killed in war.
Think about a way to avoid starting a war.
Think about all the horrors of a war.
