So, by your logic, the firefighters who died in the Twin Towers on 9/11 are just "victims" and not heroes either, hm?
Either come out and say it or expose yourself as a hypocrite.
I wouldn't do either one. That's a dumb choice, you are "setting him up. Here's your choice: What's more important? Proven material for the insulating foam? or a "more environmentally friendly" alternative which caused the death of 7 astronauts?
I agree they were victims. Of ignorance over experience. Political correctness sometimes kills. Someone usually makes that choice.
