    Experienced soldiers maybe but not 18 and 19 year olds. They don't even have fully developed brains yet and can't legally buy a drink. They have a TV/Movie glorified view of war until they are there and realize they are fighting for ... what.... corporate glory. ?

    Great justification. but past history tells us that we would likely revert to killing civilians to force surrender if we could do it without the media seeing it. Oh wait, that doesn't work in a war zone that has little direct effect on us and where those we fight don't care about the civilians . So what , sorry little african girl but your sacrifice will help make a few Americans and Britts rich?

    No matter how many times you bring this up, no matter how many angles you try to use, no matter how many what if's you are still wrong.

    If the enemy is fighting from civilian areas civilians are going to die. You blame us instead of the guilty ones. When civilians see the enemy in their neighborhoods they should run away. If not, they should hope we miss and we don't.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    Say what you want. But I know that you care about your family so much that when Mr D said something about your son it made you so angry. When Mr V said your children were expendable you told him, his first. I wouldn't even have thought you would chime in here when you had such awesome admirable conviction. I was actually proud of you then. What a double standard.

    This thread was not meant for you. It was for the people who were telling me that children were expendable. Just the other day you were fighting with MR V about it not being right, and you were angry, and suddenly you have changed your opinion. I am not understanding where you are coming from.

    Is it that MR V was wrong when he spoke of killing children on our soil? But I am wrong when I speak against killing children on another soil? So only American children's lives are too precious to loose? Is that what you are saying?


    I argued with others in another thread and I said most of the exact same things that the soldiers are saying in these videos. And, this was my first time seeing the videos I found them for the thread. I was told I was lying and making stuff up. If you read the thread you will see. I provided it to help people to see the truths of war, as well as to back up what I was saying to those who called me a liar. If I am wrong and all of these soldiers are wrong, then who is right? Are all of those soldiers wrong? That is only a sliver of videos that exist. There are more.

    Any life may be taken in war. I do not know any soldier, sailor, airman or marine who would take a civilian's life unnecessarily.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    What is truly amazing, is no matter how many times she tries to explain it, JAP consistently gets ripped for being against unnecessary civilian casualties. It's like it offends people's ideas they should be able to kill indescriminately. That type of minset involves several strange things, one being the dehumanization of the enemy, so nothing is off the table. Another is the revenge factor, which is blinding and doesn't have much to do with justice, or even a reckoning. But I will say this, at least you guys have softened from "killing haji's", and "better ten of them than 1 of us", to "civilian casualties are unavoidable".
    I live with a profound happiness that can only be achieved by being hated by Mr.Veritis

    You ae speaking with a different tune than you have been for the past few days. But you do Err I provided videos of many soldiers saying lives are taken unnecessarily. They must all be liars.

    You and I argued in your thread you said casualties were acceptable. I said not when there are peaceful means. For days I have been being told why the enemy can be killed. Some explained it in a nicer way and many said it in a vile way unacceptable to all of humanity.

    The things you are proposing to do to our nation are extreme terrorism. You have plans for the destruction of your nation.

    All wars are unnecessary because wars are fought because of corporate greed. So the innocent die for greed. Its not acceptable! You are 65 years old and you are still alive. For the last 65 years you have always had water and always had food or you wouldn't be alive. That is self preservation. I wonder how many times in those 65 years that you were sick and something like an antibiotic saved you. Or you had a close call and lived. That is self preservation. We all cling to life and try to live no matter what. Why should another human being not be given the same regard? In your 65 years you have sought for comfort and you now seek the refuge of your 5,000 book library for solace. You often keep company with your "lowers". You do not treat your only company very well either, but not all that bad either, and you are likeable for some odd reason, and have a witty sense of humor. But that is your life of comfort that you choose to live. Should not others be given those same rights?

    If you truly are my better, don't you think it is time you act like it?
