    I think Scotland did an acceptable thing. You may now come and kick my ass.
    Yes, it is easy for me to not feel the same outrage as survivors of the Lockerbie terrorist action. It is all abstract to me.

    Yes, they guy that did it (if he did it) is lower and nastier than whale smegma.

    Yes, this whole episode may be the UK pandering for oil. But the record is clear. Scotland has done this 23 out of 27 times it has been requested (or something very close to that).

    Compassion is, to me, a liberal value. And I'm a liberal.

    I am not saying anyone is wrong to feel otherwise. To feel outrage. This is a near dichotomy, this freeing of a terrorist for no better reason than human compassion.

    I never liked the biblical quote "vengeance is mine sayeth the lord".

    I'm a sap. Kick my ass if you must.
    This poster sounds familiar!

    And, of course, there are very few at the DUmp who disagree with this decision and the few that do are ridiculed.

    You'll never find a more wreched hive of scum and villany than the DUmp.

    Go to Lockerbie and say that OUT LOUD in the main square. I am certain the people there will oblige you.

    I think that Tractor may have been referencing me...

    I did not take offense. I understand that my views seem extreme to some, but I try my best to live them and be true to them. A lot of this relates to my research on evil and I view hatred and anger as manifestations of evil and it is my duty as a citizen of the Kingdom of God to not pass evil on to another. One does not end violence with violent actions so one can not stop hatred by hating.

    You're supposed to have compassion for the vics, not the perps. Fooking liberals are so upside down.

    And it doesn't surprise me one bit that ball-less made this DU OP.

    Why not have compassion for everyone involved?
