Until a pill is created to truly eliminate fat and the hangover at the SAME time, innocents will be killed.

although to be quite honest it's very difficult to look at actions taken against iraq post desert storm and see them as anything other than attempts to make the lives of the population miserable. things like not allowing chlorine into the country under the guise that the regime would use it to make chemical weapons has been pretty much proven to be nothing but attempts to keep them from building water purification plants, for example. I can write a longer post about it later.

I mean hell Naomi Klein goes to great lengths describing how Shock and Awe was primarily targeted at the civilian population in her book Shock Doctrine.

I think it could be another symptom of American culture. Like it or not, we're a lazy country. All the boots on the ground are pretty much the playstation generation. They were recruited. I guess that a large part of them, maybe not even the majority but a lot, joined the military because they got to the end of high school and were like WTF? What am I going to do now that the real world is here and I have no frickin idea what to do besides browse the internet, play sports and video games. I'm not intentionally trying to berate and degrade our military, I'm just just saying you have to take a pretty deep look at who these guys are. I know that war is poo. I know for SURE that we have waged MUCH more careless wars than this. When we DID though, there was a lot of major crap on the line. Every war we've tried our hand at that really wasn't righteous, we've laid a big egg at. Military training and mindset be damned, you can't tell me that all those Iraqi soldiers don't realize by now that the whole Iraq thing was total BS.

Anyway, I guess I'm trying to say let's not be shocked when a bunch of people who grew up with no responsibility are suddenly given life-and-death responsibility for a country full of people that pretty much no one sincerely gives a shart about get careless and reckless to the point of abomination when reckless and careless is all they've ever known. Hell no it's not right, but expected? I say probably.

I think that the nature of war and the (lets face it) kids that are sent to fight it always degenerates into something other than noble by default.

Boredom mixed with terror, hatred of people that killed/maimed your best friend, homesickness and culture shock all affect these people. Add in extended tours, the realization that the reasons we went were by and large crap, and people will break. Rules are for others, not the people in the trenches everyday who are forced to fight people with seemingly no rules themselves. All wars are like this, but at least the guys fighting WWII knew there was a real end game, and that the people they were fighting were a direct threat to their own families.

After a while it must be easy to convince yourself how people have it coming, how thats just how war goes....and of course these are the thought patterns that turn into problems for our soldiers when they get back to "real life". I'll remind everyone again that we are going to see the direct effects of this ill advised war for decades to come in our hospitals and on our streets.

Won't lie to you, I didn't read anything except the first post here.

Just wanted to agree with the subject. Yes, the American military is really good at killing women and children. And most other things that it shoots at. So is pretty much every other military in the world.

It's kinda their thing.

yep.

hey guys i know some of you have a sick fascination with me, my sex life, and all sorts of other things but this is a pretty serious problem with the American military and the way it conducts itself and is indicative of its inability to effectively fight this kind of war and probably warrants an honest discussion.

but this will just turn into a thread about me.


i'm not as up to speed on what goes on in iraq as i am with afghanistan. so i'm going to choose to contend that point with you. so here's my question. how can anyone disprove any wild claim of alleged civilian deaths when there is no census or concentrated effort to keep personal records?
