Huh? You mean the terrorists, militant organizations, extremists, fundamentalists etc have the morale high ground?
Though you're right in a way. Human rights organizations lambaste actions of the security forces against terrorists on the slightest pretext, but
NEVER talk about the dastardly acts committed by them.
When terrorists rape and kill innocent civilians, it seems acceptable to the human rights organizations as there isn't a word of condemnation from
them! But even a soldier entering a house during a cordon and search op to hunt down terrorists, and all hell breaks loose. The human rights orgs go
to town blaming the security forces for pillage, rape , etc, etc, though that's very far from the truth. And that's lapped up by the press for
sensationalism which then becomes a big issue.
Well, that's how it works on the ground. That's the strategy adopted by the terrorists and militant orgs to further their agenda. And people like
you seem to be gullible enough to believe in all this disinformation, which means their strategy seems to be working!
And finally, don't soldiers have human rights too?
