I don't want to start a to-do on this list, but I
couldn't let this pass..

Colin Powell showed real evidence that some people who
happen to be from the Middle East (Not sure if Hussein
and his people are Arabs) are doing some bad stuff.

The discussion is about bad people who happen to be
Arab. Not that all Arabs are bad people.

And it so happens, that a lot of terrorists in the
world today are from the Middle East. Used to be,
terrorists were Northern Irish...

The fact that some of the worst incidents have been
perpetrated by people from the Middle East does not
make Americans, British or others wrong for noticing
it. If anything, it means that it calls for others in
the Middle East to speak up and use the social
pressures or peers to put a stop to their fellow
citizens (all these bad people must be SOMEONE'S
brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, cousins,
neighbors...) doing all this bad stuff.

The displeasure that is aimed towards Middle Eastern
people from people in the West is because this isn't
happening. People are being killed daily, and instead
of having Millions of people stand up and protest
that.... We have millions of people stand up and
protest somebody trying to put a stop to it.

Yes, I think that's stupid. And I think the people who
condemn the police instead of the criminals, are

Not all American's or Westerners believe this.

While I would like that Terrorists get no money at
all, from any source. And I'm pretty sure lots of
Saudi money does indeed go to support terrorism. Drug
money from Poppy sales also goes there, and other
money goes there also.

I would like to see the oil money stay in the Middle
East, but used to feed and care for the people there.
To provide water, sanitation, schooling, and good
lives for the people in Middle Eastern countries.
Rather than being spent on Terrorism, Weapons of Mass
Destruction or persecution of Non Muslim peoples.

That is VERY frustrating for Americans. I contribute
money to charities all the time, and just get sick
when I think of all the Billions of Dollars spent on
weapons and death that instead should have been spent
on life and making the lives of people better.

People who are Anti-American, and Anti-Bush just don't
know the truth about Americans or George Bush. They
buy all sorts of stories that aren't true. Make up
motivations that aren't real.

We liberated Kuwait, but if you notice did not take
the country over. We returned it to the rightful
rulers. We've done the same throughout history.
History shows that Americans aren't interested in
ruling the world, only liberating other people to be
free and happy.

So, let's get back to discussing Classic Computers...
