    Poll is done. But I managed to accidentally copy it wrong and miss out an I but message has been dispatched to the mods to ask them to sort it.

    And you seem to apply that a subjective decision based on what most people think was significant yet I personally have trouble with the idea that this varies from place to place. This is more my unwillingness to accept there are no such things as universal morals tho. I realise there aren't but the world would be easier if there were.
    Well it may vary - but I think in most cultures deliberate killing and accidental killing are never on the same plane.

    Indeed, is material breach telling us he doesnt see a difference between the terrorists that killed 37 londoners and our own government?

    Please explain what is the OBJECTIVE MORAL difference between the two?

    Have you actually read the last two pages, as you would realise this is not what I said.

    The contrast with civilian deaths in Iraq couldnt be more stark.
    It would be more stark for me if you explained how the Iraqi civilians died and why they died.

    Are we simply discussing the war on terror or can we broaden the debate, which essentially seems to be about the distinction between state and non state terror? If talking about iraq can we discuss American actions pre-2003?
