PLEASE Keep All Discussion Respectful!!

  1. Amazing, I was thinking..this is the first time we've had such connection to the "outside" during a true war. Internet wasn't nearly as big during TGW and I wouldn't exactly call Afghanastan a "war". I think the real-time media coverage, combined with our access to other's opinions in real-time makes it interesting, yet is fuel for fire.


    Emotions are probably higher right now than they were following 9-11, I know my own are at least AS high. Several threads here have the potential to get nasty. I just wanted to remind everyone to please, regardless of your opinion or stance, be respectful of each and every post. No personal flames, please.

    thanks,
    Tracy

    Absolutely in agreement there. Peace begins with each individual respecting the opinions of another.. not always AGREEING, but RESPECTING nonetheless. And treating one another with that same respect verbally.

    Thanx.:kiss

    Some of the posts denying us the opinion of supporting troops by protesting the war are not only highly inflamatory and disrespectful they are also fallacious.
    It is a false dilemma when only two choices are given when in fact more options are available.
    It is an error of category to assume because some parts have a certain composition the whole must have it.

    I am thinking the War and Terrorism forum should be re-named to the Pro-War forum b/c Heaven help the person who says anything against the war or GWB. You will be flamed by the dozens, b/c everyone knows their opinion is the only right one. I was going to reply to the latest flame fest but decided, not to waste my energy on such ignorance and obviously inflammatory baiting!!! Sickening!!!!!

    There are those of us, who, in spite of not being in support of war, out of respect for the gov't, do not march in the streets or participate in acts of civil disobedience. To assume that anyone not in support of a war would take any joy in a day like today is wrong, and adds to the grief.

    Thanks for doing your job so well. It's a very tough time for all Americans, as these war threads reflect. I appreciate your input and mediating skills.

    I support the war. My dad and sister do not. Dad is a WW2 vet and truly a patriot like many other folks who disagree.
