Who is this "We" Ed.

I hope with your posts to date I never get to be in the "We" catagory with you.

You're insulting people that you have no right to.

Ok Ok Ok but... I do not give respect to a culture that never had a renissance period. Sorry just my opinion, freedom of speech and all. Ed

If you're referring to the Arabs, your knowledge of history is seriously flawed, my friend. After the fall of the Roman Empire, the knowledge gained by them and the Greeks was only salvaged by the efforts of Arab and Jewish scholars, who kept it alive and added to it in centers of learning throughout the Middle East. While Europe sank into the Dark Ages, knowledge and learning was kept alive and flourished in Arab lands.
You say you don't give respect to their culture? Neither do their extremists give respect to ours, that's why they feel they can blow us up, we're undeserving. That's something to think about, if you care to.

I agree with freedom of speech however, your current speech belongs with you in the gutter.

I'm sorta with Ed here. Moral equivlacy is for wiennies. I wouldnt choose to use a derogatory nickname here but it's common for troops to have slang names for the opposition and the locals. Also I do believe in some absolutes. The behaviors of a culture are one of the ways we can form an opinion about them. There are some bad people out there and we shouldnt be afraid to call them what they are.

Agreed. So let's call them what they are: bad people, criminals, maniacs, murderers and terrorists.
There're people just like that on both sides of the Northern Ireland troubles. Are we then justified to start calling the Irish everywhere nasty names?

Hi kman

You could do that, but as currently on a worldwide basis, the USA is the most hated nation on earth, I'm afaid it puts you at the bottom of the pile of sh*t.

Personally I believe that if we're going to discuss MA's then you need to avoid the insulting name calling of people on the basis of their nationality.

Nice try....but not much use ...I cant see JohnL being ruffled by that little jest.

JohnL is spot on - its a martial arts forum and we should stick to that. If you havent got anything relevant to say then why bother.

One of the great things about MA is you can work with a partner to learn things. Often you will have different skills and can learn from each other.

If you take your MA off the mat and apply it to life you might see that similarly there are two sides to every argument. And there are good and bad people in every nation.

Leave the name calling in the playground.
