None of the above-mentioned are radical enough for me!

You want radical? How bout instead of you coming on here b'itching and moaning, that (assuming you are in Saudi) you go to your nearest Mosque (or shopping mall), get everyone's attention, tell them your nationality and religion of choice, and then tell them your peace plans. I'm sure they will compensate you most generously for your ideas about blowing up the Kaba!

Better yet, why don't you just do us all a favor and go play in some Saudi traffic!

What a bad-tempered person you seem to be!

No, I am not in the Kingdom.

I have been there, and have no desire to return.

So, Saudi4Ever, I wish you the best.

And hopefully you will be in the line of fire of that plane... comin´straight at yo ass!

Now that's no way to talk to a lady; I'll bet your Mum would be SO ashamed of you.

That is presuming that $audi4Ever is a lady, which I doubt.

No. my mum would be proud of me.

She disapprove strongly of terrorists (oops, sorry, we have to call them militants now), and doesn´t think that anyone has a God-given right to go around killing people.

Your doubt is misplaced; she is, indeed, a lady.

And Ms. Saudi4Ever thinks, I'm sure, the same as your Mum. I don't want to put words in her mouth - so, if I'm mistaken, I hope she'll correct me - but I strongly believe that she thinks those who go around killing innocent people (e.g. those idiots in Al Khobar, George W Bush, Osama and Co., Sharon, to name but a few) are all reprehensible.
That's certainly my opinion, at any rate.
Regards,
John

In case of terminological difficulties in this area I often find it helpful to remember that the verb to which the noun relates is (extremely) irregular:

stillnosheep wrote:

I fight for freedom
You are a soldier
He is a foreign mercenary/She is an illegal combatant/It isn't worthy of treatment according to the Geneva convention

We are the Liberation Army
You (all) are insurgents
They are the terrorists

Whoops, I disapprove, you disapprove, he/she/it disapproves.

Thank you, sheepperson.

And now, on to advanced belly dancing classes...

Shame on you for calling Hector_Lector's mum

She's as regular as clockwork - it's the prunes that do it, you see.

Dear Hecor_Lector,
I assume the "you" is stillnosheep. I think your mum's a fantastic lady, especially considering all she's had to put up with.
Regards,
John

I think, probably, it would be a plural form of you.

Whatever, leave her out of it.

And if you think I´m a problem, you should meet my brothers. I´m the quiet one.
