Two things, Lou.  And I can't say I know the answer, its just open for
discussion.  Maybe the guy going to the dentist was frustrated and will find
he now supports the war because of these people, but the fact is a few
people made world headlines.  What about the people in Australia and Japan
and whereever that were encouraged by such action?  Do the pluses outweigh
the minuses?

Secondly, if you (or anyone else) decides this kind of action is wrong
headed - what, in a practical sense CAN you do?
