    “A trip to the Air and Sea Show is not supporting our troops: it’s reveling in hardware that is being used to do some really fucked up shit in the world. I’m staying the hell away.”

    Man, I had no idea that IED’s and exploding harnesses and swords were going to be on display. Do you think they’ll have some beheading demonstartions? And what building will passenger airliners be flying into?

    Good one, Val. No, actually I think they have our stuff at the show. Jet fighters, bombers, and whatnot.

    Yeah, the cool stuff, the stuff that allows you the freedom to run your smug, profanity laden little blog without government intervention no matter where you set up shop in the world. Do you think the Arab world would allow such freedom if they were the top dog on the totem pole? As long as they continue to hold fast to a medieval anti-democratic mindset that tolerates if not encourges terrorism against the west and especially America, I say right on to the air show!

    Oh. So what you’re saying, in short, is something like

    “Let’s bomb them all into submission! Let Freedom Ring!”

    I think, to put it more succinctly it’s:

    “Let’s do it to them before they do it to us.”

    I think you’re experiencing a certain amount of semantic confusion around the word “them.”

    in “them doing it to us”
    THEM = a small number of terrorists

    in “us doing it to them”
    THEM = a very large number of people in the middle east

    also note that the number of terrorists in the former case is growing rapidly as a result of “us doing it to them.”

    We’ve had a few years to think it over carefully, seeing it in action, and hearing from experts from all over the world…...the consensus seems to be that if we wanted to encourage terrorism and recruit young people to the cause, we couldn’t possbily do more than we’re doing every day in Iraq. Meanwhile, Osama Bin Laden remains at large, promoting his new career as a recording artist, and the Taliban have resumed terrorizing areas of Afghanistan outside Kabul.

    So help me out here: What is it “we’re” doing to “them” before “they” do it to “us”?
