The Last Word On The Matter

Hello All,

I didn't mean to start a debate. I don't think this is the place to discuss 
politics or religion in any depth. That being said, I have this last thing to 

My clan is old, we have made an effort to be existentialists. I think we did a 
grand job of it. During our time we've come to some simple conclusions.

With very few exceptions, war rarely achieves any positive goals.
War services only the few.
Violence is rarely an answer.

The differences between a soldier and a terrorist are simple.
A terrorist will take a life for his beliefs, 
a soldier will save a life.

A soldier believes in the preservation of innocence and freedom
a terrorist doesn't believe they exists.

A terrorist will celebrate and bask in the death of his enemies,
a soldier will morn them and see their deaths as his failure to do his duty.

All children, everywhere, are innocent. 

Regardless of who pulled the trigger, a crime was committed. Regardless of 
what uniform one wears.

We must defend ourselves, we must prevent our extinction, the extinction of 
our freedoms, our way of life, of our innocent and innocence, but not at the 
extinction of another.

Let's spare this forum political debates. Politics has never served anyone of 
any value and was created by the near worthless, to serve their goals. Walk 
away from it and learn to live in peace.

I'm sorry for the disruption I've caused, it was not my intent. I had hoped it 
would be clear that any life lost, is something to morn for. I still think of 
the girls that were kidnapped from some middle eastern school to serve 
as "wives". I think of the children killed in that callous drone attack.

If you need to hate, hate the chess players, both of them. Not the chess
