Reminds me of another argument I got into, years ago, on
Fidonet, when that U.S. gunship crew were executed by FMLN combattants
(aginst FMLN policy) near the 'end' of the war...
I was basically 'raked over the coals' by some super-patriots (and
maybe a few idiot liberals) when I said I was supremely unsorry for their
deaths. That they deserved what they got for shooting-up a village not
long before the incident (killing anyone? I forget).
The above only proves that my sentiments were not that out of
line... Too bad I didn't know about this concrete act of U.S.
state-sponsored terrorism then...
