Just had to say it, didn't ya? :laugh2:
People may say things in anger ....... but we have yet to slowly saw the head off of a 22 year old kid.
I still do not think there is even a close comparison.
The easiest way to explain it is thusly: Imagine a flag on a staff being carried by someone marching forward. The flag will stream behind the marcher and, when looked at from the right side, the blue field will be in the upper-right corner. Like it appears on the "backwards" patches. That's what it represents...marching forward.
Thank you for the interpretation. :laugh2:
Ur reading to much into what I said.......I'm not saying that wht we did is as bad as them by any MEANS........just bad is bad, wrong is wrong. Is there a greay area yes
The adage 'war is hell' is as true as the day is long. The one thing which some do not wish to acknowledge is that the military's sole purpose is to crush the enemy. They are not glorified police officers. It is impossible for any war to be waged in an antiseptic manner.
That's my problem with joining the armed forces........I don't fear dying, but IDK if I could kill someone.........
Ah. Thanks for clearing that up for me. Makes sense now.
That's not a problem in the slightest. It would have been a problem if you had enlisted. The military is not a democracy.
Give me a good enough reason and I will take anyone out.
The military may not give you a reason, just an order.
...and most likely I would follow it being that it would be enough...unless I knew the act was wrong.
Rumor that will be picked up by the mainstream press and the truthers soon.
The body was disposed of quickly because the Skull was taken as the newest trophy of the Skulls and bones ...... along with Geronimo and Pancho Villa.
There are jobs in the military where you don't actively go out and kill people.
Also don't know if it is still around but at one time you could file as a Conscientious objector...where in some cases you would be put into a position where you did not fight or even carry a weapon but would still be in the military...in other cases you would not be in the military but maybe put into a civilian position that in some way would support the military...say working at a factory that made equipment for soldiers.
why bother releasing the photos.
the people who already say we did not kill him will say they are fake anyway.
no need to spike the football. we killed him and buried him. lets move on.
Sometimes you have the right to spike the ball.
Islamofascists started this. We ended it. We should rub this in their faces and give them a visual of what happens what you screw with America.
Because that is how they do things in the middle east. If those pics were released it would not be for the benifet of the American people but for those in the Middle East much like how the Press showed Saddam and his 2 sons after they were dead. To often we try to put an American view on things like this and yet our 2 cultures are very different.
Not that I care either way, but this is definitely the classy way to handle this.
