Oh yeah I forgot, and before the war, that country was like the Garden of Eden run by the Taliban
Did I say that place was a good place? No.
Did I say that this little girl had a future to look forward to at any part in her life? No.
where that little girl could go on and become a Dr. or a scientist instead of becoming part of some nasty old man's harem, your right,
Is that what you truly beleive we are fighting for over there? Is that what you think the billions and billions of dollars being spent is all about?
Saving this girl so she can be a doctor?
Jesus...this is what I am talking about. Pictures like this can make a person "totally lose any grasp on the reality of what is actually going on
everyday, year after year, as innocent people die for a war on terror."
WAR ON TERROR!!!
You even GET THAT!? We are at war, globally, with an abstract noun, for God's sake!
You ever see a country declare war on an abstract noun?
Yeah...we have invested all this money, energy and death so we can see that these little girls get to be doctors.
they were all better off before.
You think they are better off now? You think WE are better off now? Every kid who lost a loved one to this nightmarish massacre will grow up hating
America and wanting revenge.
Every soldier who survives combat will be damaged mentally or physically for the rest of his life.
Young kids are being used as death weapons, on both sides, by greedy, dishonest warlords trying to prove "stupid points" through ridiculous shows of
violence that just fuels the next bomb/missile/drone strike to take out even MORE people who will not get the chance to become doctors, or even live
and isn't it the child that giving the flower to the soldier?
Of course it is...only evil adults who rather sit behind a safe desk while giving murderous orders to young people, judge a man by his uniform or his
You won't see this girl again, nor will you even truly care what became of her. You will use her superimposed image to sooth your apathedic,
2-dimensional, media-induced views on the war so you can continue cheering for the "good guys" while the death toll rolls.
Again..we have our own perspectives.
And I think you are not even watching the war.
