Well, I'm glad they were such idiots. But honestly, who tries to make a bomb with gas cans that contain only gas???? WTF! I mean, an FAE is one thing... but this was just pathetic.

that's what I was talking about... I wonder why they haven't used fuses from for example airbags instead...

BTW no need to generalise or call people bad names just because you don't agree with what they are doing...
EDIT (not that I agree with what they are doing)

No, but calling them midget loser terrorists isn't going to have much effect, you just look a bit immature. No offence Starman.

What? And spray pesticides all over us so that the eggs we lay aren't strong enough, and fracture under our weight? They couldn't even understand combustibility limits, how do you expect them to understand one of the most complicated (and least researched) ideas in terms of combustion? I don't think you could possibly be referring to that, especially because a car is not very long in comparison to its radius, so even in ideal situations it wouldn't work, so you must be referring to the chemical. Yes, that would be terrible if they had...

None taken. My original quote was "mental midget, loser terrorists", and that's exactly what they are/were/whatever their status is at the moment. However it may appear on the maturity scale, I firmly stand by the comment... :wink:

I find it kind of funny how morons who aren't trying to do anything malicious end up with frogs in their eye sockets, and these ones are trying to cause damage, and fall short.

@Lentamentalisk LOL

@starman
The concept of terrorism is itself controversial because it is often used by states to deligitimize political opponents, and thus legitimize the state's own use of terror against those opponents. Edward Said remarked that '[w]ith few exceptions the discourse of terrorism is constituted by an author whose main client is the government of a powerful state opposed to terrorism, but also anxious to shield itself from arguments about its own (quite routinely barbaric and violent) behaviour


for me dying as a result of collateral dammage is not much different from getting killed by a suicide bomber...

and I have to tell you that the word terrorists was/is often used when reffering to the USA... so Do you call yourself a mental miget and loser just because in opionion of some guys you are a terrorist ?

someone who uses generalisations and calls people bad names just becasue he does not agree with what they are doing can be called a mental midget and loser

spudfiles is not about politics so I see no reason to discuss it here in more details ( PM instead if you want to). Besides what I am trying to tell you is not about politics at all.

when you use the terms that you used in this post you are not much different from mr. bad example - you tell some things but there is not much thinking, knowledge or understanding of the topic behind your words...
I don't think that you have ever met or talked to anyone who is regarded as a terrorist by your government yet you make comments aobut them... mr badexample doesn't know what he is talking about but I've seen some of his comments on 'the world largest......'

Poland, we've had these exchanges before regarding terrorism. You seem to have some weird fetish about it's usage.

I didn't use the term "terrorist" in a relativistic way as you and your quote person there seems to see much of the world. They ARE terrorists as they were attempting TERRORISM...it's an absolute. They aren't equal to me or my politics and don't deserve such standing. They are what they are and I'm not "generalizing" to say so.

I called them "mental midget, loser terrorists" because they failed utterly in their "mission" because of technical ignorance, they lost, and they are terrorists.

You sir, are the one bringing up politics here, not me. The thread was started on the overfueling subject and has pretty much stayed there.

Thankfully, I don't believe I have ever personally "met or talked to" a terrorist...what does that have to do with anything? That isn't a prerequisite for calling a terrorist a terrorist.

you know what I meant and I know what you meant...

besides would you call them 'inteligent' and 'succesful' terrorists if they had managed to cause a lot of dammage and casualities ? I wouldn't call them like that but the point here is that you are not being objective... you show your hatred toward people who are being called terrorists...

while this particular people are defienatelly terrorists not all people who are being called terrorists are being called like that becuasue they are bad but because someone wants them to be perceived as such...

when you make a link between the term terrorists and stupidity that's imature but at the same time you and others make a link between acts of terror and the word terrorists... the term is often used
" by states to deligitimize political opponents, and thus legitimize the state's own use of terror against those opponents


Even nazis were using the word 'terrorists' when reffering to fredom fighters all around europe... what is more they were trying to make a link between certain groups of people (for example the jews, Poles, Russians, Gypses etc.) and words such as a thief, loser, idiot etc. - I asume you know why they did that and how many Jews or Poles died in concentration camps ? judging from things that happened in abu gharib I reckon that your country already has some problems with it
:?

I am not saying that you are doing it on purpose but anyway I've notice that you have used similar generalisations in your posts... it's not about politics - it's about stereotypical thinking and repeating things without thinking... I would react in the same way if you have written a similar sentence about blacks, jews etc.



Finally how would you react if someone wrote here something like this 'his gun blew up because he is a midget minded, loser black guy'

would you still say that 'he used DWV parts so he is a midget minded loser and he happens to be black so that is why he called him like that' ?

( I know that you wouldn't like to see posts praising palestinian freedom fighters or somthing like that becasue spudfiles has nothing to do with politics (and I like it) but at the same time you should refrain from expresing your own views )
