been in every scrap from Vietnam up to and including Somalia. I'll tell you what these animals have bastardized islam to suit their own needs,
Torture went on before and still is and will happen again. I don't like war. Crazy people likeit. I have seen what these animals do to a human and
like rabbit said they don't care whether you are a barganing chip or not. They want ot make a point that they can and will kill or torture to get it
across. Personally 25 or 30 daisy cutters on the whole friggin mess will break their backs real fast. If that doesn't do it then start at one end of
the country and go house to house and take the weapons. Give these animals one chance to lay the weapon down or they die on the spot. Then once that
operation is going on the real bad guys will run out of hiding like rats and you take them down. What's so complicated as that. As for the Marines
boohoo ing I rather doubt it.
Not quite sure where your going with this but to answer your questions....
1. If this were my son I would have educated them to the best of my ability so that they could, on their own, make rational, ethical and moral
decisions. In doing so they would probably deduce very quickly that this operation is a sham and quite frankly not worth surrendering your life so
that political pinheads could see happier days.
2. I think anyone with a sane conscience would discourage war of any type, but that is not reality. We both agree there.
3. You can't bomb an ideology into submission, regardless of it's intentions, it just doesn't work. Your house to house approach is impractical and
would only fuel the anger thats currently present. There are innocent people in Iraq who are also losing loved ones and (to my point) it doesn't
exempt them from the same anguish & pain that these Marines families have to endure. Like I said before it sucks but there's no point in whining
about it. I made no comment of Marines "boohoo'ing" I was merely stating that each side has suffered losses, neither more important than the
