    Zokes vs bwaarp.

    It reminds me of the internet in the 1990s:

    “Your shit.”
    “No, your shit.”(sic)

    Except we were all on extremely slow dialup modems, so that kind of insult took about 2 days to transfer! These days it’s much harder because you have way less time to come up with a proper witty retort! 😉

    Agree with muddydwarf, jamj1974 “adults is a bit of a stretch!

    The irony being that you’re now just hurling around the insults you’re moaning so much about.

    Happy to take a step back. Try being ‘the bigger man’ you allude to being, and do likewise.

    To allow the rest of us none angry people the chance to contribute to this topic I’m now going to politely request that Zokes and Bwaarp leave their keyboards for the rest of this thread.

    Zokes if you are happy to take a step back then why don’t you do just that rather than retaliating continually. Realistically do you think that the comments and bickering made by both you and Bwaarp are those of two intelligent adults? Additionally I have not alluded to “being the bigger man”, you should really just try to get along, if you and Bwaarp want your lovers tiff please do it somewhere else rather than here.

    To be fair, it does seem like zokes was the one to blame in this case.

    That crap about being too clever to read a text book was just utter cockness. Along with the ‘ha ha you failed’ sentiment, seems like thoroughly unpleasant behaviour.

    I don’t mind guys just leave it, I don’t need defending – I’ve been pretty offensive towards people before. I’m pretty happy with my life as such words on the internet don’t effect me. I just enjoy getting a reaction out of Zokes.

    I do really strongly disagree with the criticism leveled at the officers though, I provided you guys with a link that discussed how they are trained to open fire in these situations. Basically they keep shooting until there is no response, they don’t fire one or two aimed shots and then check to see if the target is down as that can give the suspect a chance to loose off a round.

    IMO the Boston police did a commendable job and if a few of them had nerves and opened fire because they wanted to get back to their wives, considering the context….then I don’t feel they can be blamed. I should imagine all of these coppers wanted the suspect captured alive so questions could be asked that would help Boston come to terms with the bombings.

    At the end of the day they shot and chucked bombs at policemen…

    Can we ban all politic threads (or economic ones?) Or have a seperate section for news, current affairs and politics?

    The arguing is draining isnt it.

    Except that doesn’t really seem to fit with the reports of how the operation was performed, or indeed that it was a specialist FBI “Hostage Rescue” team who did the final job… or the use of “stun grenades” which are clearly visible in the IR footage from the helicopter, etc.

    Is it just possible that there are different officers with different levels of training and skills? and that possibly different approaches might be used by different forces in different countries, and situations etc?

    Not sure I see the problem. One terrorist dead, one disabled and no longer a threat. He’s still alive so thay can do whatever is necesary to extract info from him to make sure they weren’t part of something bigger.

    At the end of the day, these guys made the conscious choice to carry out an atrocity against civilians with the aim of maiming and killing. Therefore anything that happens to them as a consequence of that is fair game.

    These sort of things are to be expected.
    Once you ban Kylie.

    They don’t shoot to injure in the US, there are no differences between the UK and the USA in that regard.

    If stun grenades were thrown it was done to:

    A) Make capture possible
    B) Gain the upper hand in an assault or gaining a firing position.

    Even if they intended to try to capture him and they thought he was going for a weapon, they’d shoot to stop him. Could someone link me to these reports please? I can’t find them.

    Bbc had some footage of a robot thing cutting the cover on the boat and a stun grenade going off. No idea how that ties in with all the shooting.
