sbob... why be so touchy?
It seems like if anyone brings up any critisim of American policies, troop behaviour, or justifications you immediatly label them as
Introlerance for critism of the government is a fasist trait.
It doesn't matter what Saddam did or didn't do. Destroying a man's living under the treads of a tank because he picked up some wood is WRONG. We
cannot critisize their social values if we are unable to abide by our own. If the man was caught doing something ilegal, he should have been turned
over for due-process. Since the system for due-process was non-existant at the time, something else should have been considered. Taking legal matters
into their own hands is NOT the job of the troops in Iraq.
This underlines a singular point of critism... US Troops are not trained to be occupiers. There seems to be a funadmental problem in their training
that promotes the use of their toys for their own personal amusement. Most of all, it shows that there is a deep seated problem in terms of
discipline, honor, and respect.
That's a set of problems here in the West that goes far beyond the military... it's pervasive throught our entire culture.
