No Mr. Boehm, we haven't gone completely insane. What we have done is go after the organizations that facilitated the attack on 9/11. These people were not detained simply because they wear a Casio watch. Most were captured in batle in Afghanistan. They were fighting on the side of the Taliban and Al Queda, the people who gave us the attack on 9/11, and are also the people who insist that women wear the burka (spelling?), and also don't believe that women should be educated.
This forum is not the place for political disucssions, discussions about global terrorism, of other such weighty issues. It is for the discussion about HP calculators. However, your comment has made me outraged, and I have to respond. I have driven past the hole in the ground in Manhattan wherer the twin towers once stood. I also happened to see the twin towers in the distance the first time the Islamic terrorists tried to destroy them. I remember seeing the pictures of people jumping out of the twin towers, choosing to die by falling to the ground rather than be burned to death in a jet fuel fire. Have you ever seen these pictures? Have you ever seen the pictures of the people desperatley clinging to the outside of the building? I have, they are still vivid in my mind. We also know that these people are constantly plotting to attack us again, and to cause the maximum number of civilian casualties. Sadly, sooner or later they will probably have another successful attack against us, what will you say then? I'm sure the intended target will be something like a sports stadium, hospital, school, or something similar.
No Mr. Boehm, we are not the insane ones. The ones who are insane are the terrorists. Read the article again. You will see that these people are not detained merely because the happen to have a Casio watch. The ownership of a Casio watch is not the sole piece of evidence, but is stated as being "among" the evidence. The article also goes on to detail instances where these watches have been used as timers in terrorist bombs.
This is the last I will say on this matter to you. I have no desire to engage in a flame war, or to debate this matter with you; this forum is not the place to engage in those activities. You touched on a very sensitive subject. I hope that in the future you will restrict your comments to HP calculators, and not to criticizing my country.
