I am not going to repeat what I have said as it is quite conspicuous that you are talking over and over to cover up terrorism using the term 'subjugate opponents' and put the blame solely on the government side.
there you go again, talk of a preconceived judgemental view!
where have I talked 'over and over' to cover up terrorism? in fact what i have done is talk of the terrorism of the government against it's own people. i am not covering up but exposing! whereas you are only 'concerned' about the terrorism of the 'terrorists.' the point i was trying to make is, a person 'concerned' about terrorism should be against all forms of terrorism. one cant be selective.
I am of course concerned when Terrorists are sympathised left, right and the centre by those who live on NGO dollars and paving the way to killing innocent people.
if you go back to the start of this argument there was no need for me to talk about the terrorism of the 'terrorists' the ltte, as you have done. if your confused brain can grasp it, all what i have done is just redress the balance by asking where is your 'concern' for the terrorism of the government.
if you have the mental capability to understand, an elected 'legitimate' government is held to a very high standard of accountability not by me but by all the international organisations. it is not given licence to resort to terrorism in the form of extrajudicial killings, abductions, torture etc. the fact is that, the government is unable to apprehend the main perpetrators of terrorism prabakaran and his cohorts, hence out of frustration have resorted to terrorising defenceless citizens on mere suspicion.
now let me really be judgmental. i suppose what you are trying to say and doesn't have the courage to say is, that you are against ('concerned') the terrorism of the ltte, but not against the terrorism of the government, as it is justified in it's use of terrorism to overcome terrorism. see how easy was that? there is no need to do a one legged verbal bila dance all over the place. come on be a man, say it like it is!
This is the difference of talking with overt facts and covert facts.
now, now you have surpassed yourself. have you got a clue what you are talking about? care to elaborate?
If you or anyone else reading this are truly 'concerned' there is a good piece on 'Of course, it is all done in the name of protecting the people' by charley reese.
Given a choice between government security and freedom with risks, always choose freedom. Criminals, including terrorists, don't have much power, but GOVERNMENT POSSESSES CRUSHING POWER. Of course, we Americans are conditioned to view our government as friendly and protective, but that is a mistake.
Alexander Solzhenitsyn made an interesting point in his 'Gulag Archipelago.' He said the reason so few Russians resisted when the secret police came to get them was because they were innocent. They had done nothing wrong, they were loyal, and they expected their government to realize that their arrest was a mistake. The government didn't, of course, because they were victims of a dictator's paranoia.
