..sure, but try make military sense out of it; Air dropping arms in to
the Jews, would have tied up several hundred thousand Nazis, and largely
"for free", the Jews _had_ no choise other than combat. and Zyklon B.

et al, say for having obstructed War on Terrorism by funding SCO to
divert Linux manpower away from 64 bit development and into litigation,
or for messing with a certain ballot machine operating system to elect
a Certain Sissy, President.
..we judge Microsoft et al on _their_ prior art, and we get judged on
our own prior art, and, by the Muslims too.
