To all of you lacking taste and Decency,

To make fun of a tragedy that has affected poor and simple 1400 Egyptians is as bad taste and indecent as it is to deny the tragedy of other people.

To participate in unlawfull and unwaranted agression against a weaker nation under the pretext of WMD (which no one believed were there in the first place) or change of regime , and then kill no less than a hundred thousand civilians in the process is as bad as to attack the symbol (flag or embassy) of a small and for most part of the modern history friendly small state.

To be selective in pursuing the various forms of freedom is as double standard as the reaction has been exagerated.
To the guy who probably mixed real world for PS2 Doom. There is no glory in blowing children and elderly to bits from 35 thousand feet above the ground, as little glory there is in killing civilians going to work in London or Madrid.

Both victims are helpless. Only difference that this has been the modus operandi for many victim countries (people, civilians , you know like me, you your neighbours kid etc..) over the past fifty years (Vietnam, Laos, Nicaragua, Lebanon, Afghanistan,Iraq, etc...), and accepting that their rulers were reds, fundamentalists or gangsters, at least they did not have the choice some others have in choosing their gangsters

It disgusts me when people become so inhuman in their arguments, i don't know if it is by virtue of ignorance, or fear of what they are ignorant of
