well the fact of the matter at hand is the woman carrying a bag of groceries to the soldiers was trying to do something good...but she maybe should have thought about walking up to armed personel with a bag of anything...its not like the soldiers in this case were just killing her for the fun of it...yeah it was a tragic thing but after the fact is when people want to judge what our soldiers are doing over there...which is exactly why they carry those drop weapons for those who want to pick apart details after the fact....what were they suppose to do let her walk up to them with a bag full of explosives...how tragic would it have been then...Yes there are situations where soldiers are probably out of line and need to be repromanded for their actions...but like any organization there are always going to be a few individuals who don't operate within the boundries...OUR SOLDIERS NEED TO BE GIVEN MORE CREDIT FOR WHAT THEY ARE DOING FOR OUR COUNTRY EVEN IF THE WHOLE SITUATION DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE THEY ARE STILL OUT THER FIGHTING AND PUTTING THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE...SHAME ON THOSE WHO WANT TO JUDGE THEM ABOUT PETTY EVENTS DURING WAR...

Nope. Many of us had already judged before they even went over there. Many of us already knew they were being sent to occupy a sovereign nation and it would lead to many unwarranted deaths and lives ruined on both sides. Defending it after the fact is what is happening now.

If the truth was known about how they conducted the war, they wouldn't have support for it, and there would be a Vietnam style backlash. Which is why they are so desperate to keep it all secret, supposedly in the national interest.

Politicians are some of the most sinister people in the world. You can never trust their word. Democracy where "perfected" is just a guise, the people are still not in charge, or they would not have to keep such big secrets.
