Your oil doesn't have # to do with Afghanistan.

Most of it comes from Canada.

What the middle east does with petroleum isn't about providing more of it for cheap. They do the opposite, and float prices by keeping their production DOWN. Getting more on stream isn't their goal.

Further, the Afghanistan thing in general would be way more useful to RUSSIA than the USA. Due to its landlocked position.

On a side note - it has started to occur to me that the governments have reason to have just enough people onside in their populace to continue a necessary war.....but really don't WANT a war to be too popular. Making the military and its leaders into to big of "heroes" as individuals or an institution would be perceived as a FAR greater local threat.

I wonder how many of our agent provocateurs are specifically sending out messages of hate and anger in order to assure that their is sufficient dis-ease with the military that they do not become a local threat.

Thoughts to ponder.

It will show up on MSM as the children "attacked a convoy."

You just know the spin on this is gonna be a 360.

REVENGE

God , I hope it wasn't



Doesn't a 360 put you right back where you were? 180 degrees is what you were looking for I think.

I know.....our troops would never do anything like that....I mean, they are just fighting to keep us free...

try this
news.yahoo.com...


Nowhere does it say US troops did this, the OP is misleading as the title says "U.S. Troops handcuff, execute 8 Afghan children" then the post says U.S.-led troops...

war is hell, bad things happen and this is horrible, but you don't have to use every bad thing as an attack on U.S. troops

More than likely, they just found a picture and posted it with the article. This story is just breaking and everybody is trying to get information so I don't see the media already having pictures from the operation.


Yeah.....Why are people making a big deal out of that picture.?.?
It's not an actual picture of the executions....cause those kids in the picture are alive...

While all this speculation is going on about an incident that cannot be proven and likely never will ... there is no attention made to this story attributed to the Sri Lanken's...

Where's the outrage?

Oh ya, it wasn't the US so it doesn't merit horror and disgust and hatemongering and sensationalism, apparently...

U.N. investigator says video of executions appears to be authentic

Yeah seems like they would make a big deal out of the pictures from the event where the one guy in a yellow shirt is laying in front of a bag of nitrogen. And since they were supposed to have been in bed at the time why do they all have there clothes on in the pictures.

That is horrible, and can be verified, however, you don't get lots of flags and stars if it isn't anti-american. It seems lately, the whole world can do no wrong in some peoples opinion, except the US. Great post.

You're right. And the kids in that picture could only be about a year old compared to these 8-9 year old "kids."

S**t like this happens in every war, you do realize that right? There will always be a few bad apples that spoil the barrel.

You're suggesting that every US soldier (by the way, the reliable sources on here I've looked at haven't confirmed that they are US), is a rapist/child murderer. I know a few soldiers and that's just not true. They're not all psychopaths who want to shoot "rag-heads".

Heck, most of the ones I've talked to tell me that the first time they're fired upon, they don't try to hit them when they shoot back, because it is very much against human nature to kill other humans.

Oh and by the way, drones were created (among other reasons) to avoid civilian casualties in a war where it's really hard to tell who's your enemy. So I'd like some links posted of these being used to "slaughter" innocents.

Oh yeah and the terrorists over there? They kill a lot of civilians, a heck of a lot more than the troops do. And no one seems to be angry with them. "Oh , they wouldn't do that if we weren't there." While that's true to a small degree, did you even bother to think about how Iraq is basically the battleground for Sunnis and Shiites in the ME?

I'm in no way defending the war, as our presence in the Middle East is well overdue and we should have never gone into Iraq.

I'm just glad that these accusations that our military is a bunch of psychopathic bloodthirsty murderers are left to borderline lunatics like yourself and not the rest of us...

Hey there! Sorry to do this but u do know a 360 degree spin will land you right back to where to you started. To spin something to the opposite would be a 180.

I'm really sorry but I just saw the thread on 'Can we really be that dumb?' plus I hate when people screw that one up.

Cheers

Yes, that is pretty much the point that I was trying to make...

If anybody actually believes this story....you are a complete idiot! I can say from experience that this story is totally fabricated. It doesn't matter who you think did it or why, the story is just ridiculous. It is absolutely impossible for this type of incident to occur, yes, innocents get fragged in Air Strikes, and Artie Barrages, but to say Americans HANDCUFFED AND EXECUTED CHILDREN IS ABSOLUTELY ABSURD!

I hope no one believe this crap!

...and on another note, I DO NOT TRUST ANYTHING THE UNITED NATIONS SAYS EVER! This is the MOST corrupt organization in the World hands down, it makes the U.S. government look like a Sunday School Child! They lie, extort, kill, and protect the most vicious people on the planet Earth!

NATO has denied its forces were involved, suggesting "non-military Americans" had returned fire in self-defence.


This is the key point. if it was, then it was Private military # that we all know about.

I'm sorry, but until I see their faces, I don't believe that US military personnel did this. It was either PMCs or something else like them. Show me the faces and I will believe you.
