I respect the view of other people and I try to be sensitive to the feelings of other individuals. Nobody is errorless. I am not and you are not.
How you are arguing here is very far away from reality and objectivity. As a doctor you should know that diminish physical and emotional pain is a priority and you should be aware that there are maybe different measurements of values for example if somebody lives in a isolated, closed vesica without any windows painted with pink walls and a big TV flat screen watching CNN or individuals living with absolutely nomore perspective in total
awareness of normal human extrem cruelty. Treatment resistent forever. There are innocent, tortured, harmed people from Abu Ghuraib and Guantanamo or children maybe walking somehow with the help of prosthesis of German and Italian doctors with one leg or no legs anymore because of mines and bombs in Afghanistan. Tell to these people that they should be sensitive to the feelings of G.W. Bush and some other people of this government. Do you walk with one leg, Bob? -Walking with one leg is pain. Personally I was not able to walk even with my both legs but I dont complain and I dont want any compassion (!) Because you feel that much sensitive please tell these people mentioned above and other tortured people on the entire world that they must be sensitive to George W. Bush's feelings and his supporters. Politic is a word. Has politics anything to do with civility? What should I tell a doctor with Iranian name living in the country where I come from wanting to visit a burial of a family member in the US but then captured at the airport, keep imprisoned in a single small chamber and then sent back at home with no excuse? At the same time I feel connected with US families who lost their young son or their daughter in these wars. Pain does not depend on countries flags. Do you understand what I try to point out? Without war there is no freedom. I dont believe what people want to believe. I believe what I see with my limited but intact afferent sense organs.
greetings of civility
