Reply To: Air marshalls on all US carrier into USA… a step too far?

With respect, you’re offensive and wrong. Typical knee-jerk (Redneck?) reactions from someone who is clearly utterly ill-informed. Let’s also try to deal with the strategic CAUSES of this entire issue as well, and seek solutions, not just spontaneous, ill-considered reactions.

It is laughable for you to suggest that as a result of us posting “anti-American” views (which seems to mean any criticism of US actions, no matter how well-founded or constructive) on this Forum, that we may then, as a direct result, be singled out for harassment by the US agencies. I presume you are an American? If so, and if what you suggest is true, what happened to the First Amendment to your Constitution, guaranteeing the right to freedom of speech?

Your comments are racist and xenophobic. It is utterly offensive for you to describe the UK as a “recruiting ground for terrorists.” It may also behove you to remember that we (the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland), too, have suffered enormously from terrorism over many decades, from a variety of different sources.
Remember Noraid?

Although clearly everyone has the right to express a view, no matter how idiotic, offensive, simplistic and ill-informed that view is, I really do think that you should keep such views off this Forum. You, Sir, have no place here.
