Reactive responses from opposing views of the issue, leading to poster bashing and contenious words, and ultimately a thread locking in 4, 3, 2, 1.....
I don't think it needs to be locked; but i think Honors' plea for public support will not be very productive. His request should be directed towards the sailors aboard the ship at the time. The problem with seeking public support, is i don't think he'll get it. These actions were 5-6 years ago. Times change. Moods change. Worst of all, political correctness gets stricter. In other words; anyone, especially a civilian, who looks at such videos today, will not be able to give an opinion of them based on social acceptance 5-6 years ago. Their opinion will be based on today's social norms. And if produced today, such videos would be totally unacceptable. Political correctness, and everything it stands for, is a joke and is destroying our country. Unfortunately, it's also a fact of the times.
If Honors wants support, he needs to get it from the crew of the ship at the time of the actions.
