I get your point and I'm all for calm, dispassionate, intellectual discussions about theoretical things that don't exist yet.

But when there are real things being done right now by your government in your name causing innocent people to suffer, I cannot fathom a middle-ground on that.

First, stop the process and THEN we can have a calm, intellectual discussion about if it's right or wrong. But not while someone is aggressively doing something against another without public approval.

It's easy to call for dispassion when one isn't directly affected by an issue, how would you react if was your neighbor, family or yourself?
