We're supposed to support this?Submitted by karmavsdogma on Fri, 07/04/2008 - 18:30
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.
