It might take some time but I'm sure you are right.

Anyway, I'm sure they won't be shooting up their high schools, shooting up their post offices, shooting up their cinemas, shooting up their shopping malls, shooting up their churches, or shooting up in trafic jams. So I think it is true to say that Afghanistan will be more peaceful than the United Snakes of Absurdity - already on the first day when NATO leaves!

I doubt it. It is more likely Christians and non-practicing Moslems who come from countries where agression, crime, and "honour" are considered "manly obligations". Did I say Serbia and Kosovo? I hope not, because (by way of standard, Swedish etiquette) I'm not really allowed to single anyone out. Ooooops!

This political correctness, is really impossible (hope we did not offend anyone) but, fact is fact.

Let me try. Some groups of some persons are always offended by the words and actions of other persons and groups. This activity creates a friction between groups.

The only remedy seems to be an assimilation, by the group that is the most offended and persecuted. History illustrates that assimilation does not work very well.

It does not work because the offended and persecuted group is never ever happy with their situation. Throughout the history of the world there are many examples that illustrate this theory.

But, we do not want to offend, so we shall not mention any specific group just the effect of group think.

So that "they" don't know you're talking about them and "we" don't know who you're talking about at all? Yes, I see what you mean. Good plan!
