This statement was a part of the confession of a rapist and war criminal. Now you ask for every soldier to apologize similarly? How dare you suggest
that all soldiers are war criminals!
Read the apology again:
"I am truly sorry for what I did in Iraq and I am sorry for the pain my actions, and the actions of my co-defendants, have caused you and your
family. I imagine it is a pain that I cannot fully comprehend or appreciate. I helped to destroy a family and end the lives of four of my fellow human
beings, and I wish that I could take it back, but I cannot. And, as inadequate as this apology is, it is all I can give you."
Now tell me: has the actions of any soldier caused any pain to any one in Iraq?
Now tell me: has any action helped to destroy any families?
Now tell me: Was the Iraq war unjustified for?
Now tell me: Did any innocent people die in direct result of this aggressive war?
Now tell me: The soldiers that caused so much pain and misery in Iraq for implementing an unjustified war, you don't think any apology is needed.
Yes it was the government's decision, but it was the soldiers who implemented the plan. Do you think any apology, I will reiterate, any apology is
needed for the Iraqi lives that you have destroyed.
For god sakes, because of your actions millions of families were displaced, do they at least deserve an apology?
Or do you propose a war is a war, humanity should forget and forgive.
I have disagreed with many here on ATS, some civilly, some vehemently. Yet never, in the years I have frequented this forum, have I seen such
unabashed ignorance and arrogance! You, sir, should be ashamed of yourself.
Did I offend you, you have to tell me why you are offended. I will eagerly wait for your reply.
The apology letter is an example, the meaning of the message is the important part of this thread, not the individual who wrote it. By the way he was
a war criminal & a rapist, & an American soldier. Being a rapist and a war criminal doesn't mean he wasn't an American soldier, which is something
you seem to be pushing.
