    @ 5 You lack intelligence and wisdom and balls. Price of freedom is always blood. Remember all these people (Jesus, Martin Luther King, Gandhi, there're more examples), they used no guns, only their words, but they all were killed. Because that's what dictators are terrified of, wise men and women that can make people get together and fight against tyranny. Don't be a coward, this will happen, no matter what.

    your comment contradicts itself, you think peace is being a coward, wrong, as for intelligence, 2 of the 3 you mention were uneducated, they used words of peace, exactly what I support,
    one day you will understand that their are words and their are words
    and some words men die for, freedom is only part of it, besides most dictators are brain dead very odd people who wishes to harm those weaker than themselves,
    dictators do not fear freedom, most likely they fear assassination
    Besides did you not /say you were quiet happy with the deaths of Britons from the landmines
    Does this then not make you in some way, as bad as them . .

    @ You also lack understanding and you don't know what you read, so I know it's a waste of time...
    You support peace! Please, don't do that, your peace kills thousands of people every year around the world. That's not peace. Peace only comes with freedom, but sadly, freedom's price is blood. You can't even understand what those great men did.
    I've never said I was happy, you say that I said I was happy. Those are your words, not mine. You always find funny the deaths of Argentines and other third world class people (you love calling us that), so I asked you if the explotions in London were funny or not. Didn't you find them amusing as the deaths of third world class people? No? And now you care for the people in Egypt? hahaha please!
    Do you say something about dictators? You? A pinochetist? “Thank you Pinochet for your help against the argies, British people will never forget” Remember briton?
    And yes, you are a coward. It's you who think that being a man of peace is being a coward, not me, it's you and the likes of you who understand peace as being obedient and submissive in front of governments like those of the US and the UK, when we speak out against those governments you'll always say that we are not people of peace.
    As an example of men of peace I mention those three men, those were men of peace, and they were killed for that. But your twisted mind will never understand the difference between a man of peace and a coward.
