Ireland BS: Counter demonstrations to support troops (136* d) RE: BS: Counter demonstrations to support troops 21 Mar 03

"I could never sacrifice my own principles re the sanctity of life for a paycheck. Guess I'd rather die myself than get paid to kill innocent people."

"PS imo Bin Laden and "his ilk" are no different than Bush and "his ilk".

What is it Daylia that you object to? You would take up arms against such ilk, therefore you would take up arms against Bin Laden,when are your principles not offended?

"Of course not, Ireland. I certainly wouldn't if any of that 'ill ilk' broke into my home and tried to rob/kill me! Invaders are not 'innocent people', and self-defence is my right and my responsibility."

Invaders are not innocent people, tell me this Daylia, what manner of use would an individual effort be to an organised aggressor of superior numbers? Would you cope with them? Who would defend the weak? Who would you call on for help? Would you be willing to pay that person for help in protecting your family? Would you recompense the family of those who came to help you and were wounded or killed?

Your argument of invaders and the action you would take make you no different from the people you condemn. I would never be convinced that you would turn down assistance from an army unit if your life was at risk.
