We're supposed to support this?


Our troops are apparently itching to kill other human beings, any human beings, that they can label insurgents. How can we, as Americans, possibly support the needless slaughter of other human beings. The Iraqis aren't terrorists; they had the bad luck of living in Iraq when our part of the Western world decided to stomp on them w/ Saddam Hussein as a puppet we could control guarding our precious oil reserves. This war is creating monsters out of our fellow Americans, and once the war is over, they're all going to come back here w/o much of a support structure left to hold them together while they get over what they did over there. Humans are not predisposed to killing other humans. This behavior, even in a soldier, is not normal. It's not human. We should not support it.

We are here because

we don't support needless killing and yes good people are doing bad things that will haunt them the rest of their lives. Knowledge has the power of opening minds. Open minds are aware of what is happening. Open minds and Open hearts shall lead the way. Peace

A soldier's job is rarely pretty

The movies and the commercials try to glamorize the idea of being a soldier but it's far from it.

In addition, the bordom that a soldier encounters is excruciating and it seems like time passes so slowly...hours become days, minutes become hours and it's all while your constantly under the threat of attack.

A sense of humor is the only thing that keeps these men from going really crazy in the situation we've put them in.

If you want some real insight into the struggles a soldier faces... read this article.

It's a mistake


Dr. Paul cured my apathy

Ron Paul was right

You are absolutely right

We have asked our soldiers to do inhumane things and they know it. That is abuse in the worst degree. Then they come home and commit suicide or worse. We are messing them up mentally and very badly. This world empire also controls our population growth. Ship the young men out. It all fits nicely into their plans. Our government is committing abuse on grown men who have been taught that you do NOT question authority and you do anything your country tells you to do in uniform.

Our soldiers "mess" with people who do not speak English. Personally, I think that is what this was. He is getting his jollies. He is kidding with the guy in a hugely cruel way. He knows he is on tape, so he is giving the guy something to film. But I have seen them mess with others, both adult and children and it is cruel to the people and it is mentally messed up for our soldiers.

OK, I see the humor, but in uniform it becomes not funny.
