Really, soldiers are the first target?
Suicide car bombing of Iraqi police recruiting station
Another Mosque Bombing
This is just a smattering of the sectarian Shia/Sunni violence in Iraq being instigated, supported, and funded by Iran/Syria.
Marge why do you dismiss the notion that many Iraqis (mostly Sunni)support the US Army and do not want the US Army to leave until Iraqi forces can
ensure their safety?
Here are some targets of U.S bombs and bullets:
(piles of dead babies and mothers)
(girl that is naked and crying because her skin is being melted off of her body by U.S tax
payer funded napalm, her clothes are burned, and her parents were just melted alive in her home)
(man crying over his dead son)
(a man crying over his dead daughter)
I can find thousands of these. Statistics show that the U.S is reponsible for the murders of 37% of dead Iraqi civilians killed in violence since
2003- more than any other group. Insurgents are responsible for a smaller figure of 9%. Crime accounts for 36% of deaths. (source: Iraqi Body
You can show all the pictures of insurgents targeting civilians that you want and I can show all the pictures I want of civilians killed by U.S
troops. At the end of the day, we're only furthering the violence and the numbers show a wider frame of view than than the pictures do; We kill a
little over 4 times the amount of civilians that insurgents do.
If you want to call the insurgents evil terrorists, then you need to call yourself, an American, a super evil terrorist because you're 4 times more
effective at killing innocent people in Iraq than they are.
EDIT: If you want to hold Iran responsible for providing the weapons that insurgents use to kill civliians and go kill Iranians that are providing
those weapons then to be morally stable, you need to kill yourself, a US tax payer, for providing the weapons that U.S troops use to kill civilians.
And statistics show that killing yourself would be 4 times the good deed of killing an Iranian.
Myself, I'm against violence, so I'd just end the cycle of killing by, this is a brilliant idea here, not killing anyone.
