    In a case like that the wiser one of the two has to step back and to endure injustice so there's a chance for the conflict to be resolved. If both sides scream for justice for forever, it will probably end in the end for them both.

    You are lucky I am happy to see Osama dead aswell for the things he did in New York, otherwise I'ld have to shoot you now and drop in the Ocean

    Good will gestures only make sense where the likelihood of reciprocation is high. Otherwise, the other side would be emboldened to demand increasingly unfair concessions.

    In a situation like that you of course would never show your strategy and invite the other party to formulate your concessions. No, you'ld let believe them what they want but you'ld force them to take action, you'ld have to manipulate the situation politically in such a clever way that you dont appear to the world as the big crybaby who is hurt, but rather as someone who is able to deal with people who are even less intelligent than the rest of the world cause they hadnt had a philosophical time of enlightenment and still suffer from religion.

    What I meant is a mental attitude, a way of solving a conflict. I am not saying that my solution is the only one, but every solution that tries to resolve the conflict by creating understanding would be the key

    What and who influences his decision? And what of the power of the senate? What of the soldiers? If you left Obama with no other actors, what becomes of him? A person who said, "yes."

    Yes. It was necessary, but that does not make it morally acceptable.

    Humor begins with a perspective. Centuries ago, travelling to the moon was funny. Centuries ago, abolishing slavery was funny. etc.

    Obama is *partly* responsible, but he is not the only nor is he the most dominant actor.

    I don't know, this whole mystery tickles my imagination. I'm even writing down a reconstruction of what I think might have happened.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    What if they didn't get the real Osama. What if its only one of his clones?

    That was the first thing to come into my mind when this story broke.

    How can something necessary be morally unacceptable?
