OK, that part I get, but nuking Oman? Ya, a little over-the-top I would say.billturk1 wrote:sorry, perhaps i got carried away....love the us and always will

I personally feel that you are ranting for the sake of ranting, and the background of the bombing of HMS cole....billturk1 wrote:DETERRANT
guess thats what I was getting at, if only a president like Truman or LBJ was in office they WOULD NOT HAVE TRIED IT ON THE COLE because they would have known that the president would not have thought twice about nuking them. So it would never have taken place.
Whereas with the dudes in office now, they know they can do anything and our wimpy president will not retialate direct.
THE EXISTANCE OF THAT FEAR OF THE US HITTING BACK TO THE COUNTRY WOULD STOP IT.
So no, would not condone nuking the people, however all nations shold fear retialation if they attack the usa and Oman should not have allowed it to take place. Hope this rambling makes some sense.
Well yes I suppose, you maybe right, although i don't think its anything to joke about, I have lost many good friends over the years, to terrorism, and believe me, it will only hit you, when you least expect it! So no matter where in the world you travel, their is risks, and it would be very wrong, to ignore those risks...although I'm not saying it should effect ones lifestyle in a big way, it just pays off, to be aware of your surroundings.road.not.taken wrote:KSL, can it be that you are taking billturk's post a little too seriously and are in fact ranting a bit yourself?

Well yes I guess you are right there, but I wasn't really aiming at politics, rather, saying that, it's best to understand your surroundings, because you never know, when you might have to deal, with uncomfortable situations, especially when alone!road.not.taken wrote:I just meant that billturk's post is basically a light-hearted one, while loud in a, as you say, 'gung ho' Texan kind of way and is probably not the perfect opportunity to get into a lengthy discussion of the failings of America's post WWII geopolitcal policies.

For African Americans, I would say, this place is no different then any other place in the world, there are nice people and arse holes, and it doesn't matter how good one mixes, there will always be someone, that doesn't like you, and you may have to deal with it.

I am not sure if you are male or female. However, do you know if hairdressers in Singapore can assist black women with their hair care? If you have some knowledge of this, please let me know.
Your assistance is appreciated.
