Larry124 BS: America, UK and the world (40) RE: BS: America, UK and the world 13 Nov 01

USA "policy" is determined by debate, consensus, compromise, and elections.

"Having a problem" with a policy entitles one to participate in the debate. Your opinion may prevail, or may not, according to the "agreed-upon" facts and the effectiveness of your argument.

The murder of 5000 civilians from 80 countries disqualifies one from participation in the debate. Ditto dancing in the streets in support of the murderers.

The problem is NOT a first world lack of understanding of third world concerns. And, endless repetition of that particular argument is futile and counterproductive, since it is not only condescending and tiresome, but raises questions about the intelligence or honesty of the complainer.

The third world must understand the consequences of anti-American violence. Increasingly, it's a life or death choice.
