right now i'm on the bus, but in berlin i'll check it out. anyway, i 
think to remember: yes. you're right.
the only problem that remains for me is to see clearly the order of 
the words (adjective + noun and so on). but i'll find out.

i see. hm. a terrorist would be less terrifying if he finally did a 
revolution (in that case the revolution would be completed). the 
ineffectiveness of terrorists makes them so scary. anyway, a 
terrorist doesn't revolt completely. so it's not a Daw'wI', is he?

{anyway}, qatlh, <HeHmoH> <chot> vIQubmo', ghIjwI'pu' vIDaj.
(why i'm interesting for terrorists due to that i think about kllling 
and murdering?)
((anyway, i don't see why my opinion about killing and murdering 
would make me an interesting target for a terrorist. could you 
explain to me?))

>  > nuq DaHar SoH?
>>  (and what's your opinion about this?)
>See what accompanied my signature.

your signature says that you are an army sergeant. is it your opinion 
to be an army sergeant? see that our cultures might differ in this 
point (army sergeant). i need an explanation.

vaj rapbe' SuvwI' mang je.
(so a soldier and a warrior are not the same thing.)

vaj, nuq 'oS mang.
(so what does a soldier do?)

vaj, qatlh HeHmoHwI' chotwI' je rapbe'.
(so why killing and murdering isn't the same thing?)

>  > >DloraH, BG  (mangghom bu' je)

>DloraH, Beginners' Grammarian  (and army sergeant)

sorry. i understood "also an army sergeant (like someone else, too)." 
hm, but this would have been "mangghom bu' latlh", wouldn't it? 
couldn't it also mean "army and sergeant"?

>For "who" you would have /'Iv/ in there somewhere.

yes. next time.

>/neH/ isn't a suffix.

so let's take a suffix!

(no offense.)
