I planned on staying out of this fray, but the self-righteous garbage has finally worn me down.
Humanity? Who was it that wanted to talk humanity? You want to talk humanity, talk to the people that survived the domestic gassing by Hussein, the
tortures, rapes and beatings inflicted upon the citizenry by these "humane" soldiers, and then go talk to the Kuwaitis who remember the polite
occupation a little over a decade ago.
Humanity? Humane is getting the war finished and get it finished darned-well quick-like. Humane is both protecting the infrastructure (that is to
say, not blowing all the bridges into space with HE rounds) and at the same time running like Hell to keep the troops from turning the civilian
population of Baghdad into a huge hostage scene.
And, if you want to show a more "civilized" war from previous recent history, go ahead. WWI? Maybe II? No, they were brutal and horrific.
Absolute firestorms were inflicted upon both German and Japanese cities, but that's ok as that was for other reasons, right? No, this war on Terror
is mostly for the U.S. citizenry, so we are expected to fight IAW your beliefs, right? I wonder how it'll be if the day ever comes that you
whiners' nations are attacked, either by vicious terror attacks that kill thousands and cripple your economy for years, or even yet, a "civilized"
neighbor brutally attacks your "civilized" nation. I'll bet the song you sing to us won't be one of peace, love and harmony.
If you little soft, snivling whimps think a handful of fuel/air bombs on military targets are horrific, you should still be gnashing your teeth
over the Twin Tower attacks. Wait a minute, did you shed a tear for our fallen, or did you immediately turn to page "You Brought It Upon
Yourselves" in your Hate America hymnals?
