Like I say, these "people" are bred to kill, they've been
warped and manipulated to use deadly force whenever they can, and they get off on it. They are sick and twisted people, but our military are run by
sick and twisted people, so this should be no supprise.

Not even watching the video. Poor thing.
I swear anybody who hurts a defenseless animal, should be put to sleep.
So furious that words can not express. I hate people who abuse animals.
Ugh, to those soldiers, like seriously, what did the animal do to you to deserve such a harsh cruel treatment?....

Bred to kill? That's ludicrous. You cannot turn someone into a robot no matter how much you train them. Unless you're one of the small number of
sociopaths in the world you cannot be trained to lose feeling. I was a Marine. I am also a pacifist and a vegetarian. Not exactly an optimal result
when you're attempting to brainwash someone.
Most of you are hypocrites about this. Do you realize the suffering, fear, and all around torture animals endure to meet society's needs? After a
filthy, cramped, and disease ridden raising period they are sent to slaughterhouses. Pigs and cows are often improperly stunned so that they are
often conscious when their throat is cut. This isn't always done correctly, and so you can find many videos of those animals being rendered alive.
By rendering I mean have limbs cut off, dipped in scalding tanks, and skinning.
Poultry do not have any protections against cruelty in slaughter. When they are born their beaks are sliced off so they don't peck each other to
death from the stress of their confinement. They are rounded up into open air trucks with no shelter, food, or water. They are hung upside down on a
kill line, and have their throats slit by a machine.
The cows we mostly use for leather are predominately raised and processed in India. They face what is essentially a death march, are beaten and
tortured to keep moving when they collapse from exhaustion, and suffer painful slaughter. Dairy cows are bred to have unmanageably large udders to it
is painful to move. They don't do much of that anyway, and spend their entire milking years chained in confined and filthy space. They are rebred
so often that they wear out after 4-6 years, and are sent to slaughter.
The commercial fishing industry not only depletes fisheries, but also kills countless unusable animals such a dolphins.
Purebred dogs are notoriously unhealthy due to rampant inbreeding, and seeking physically harmful standards. Bulldogs can't breed or birth normally,
and are at risk for suffocation when put under stress because their face is so flab. Dalmations are riddled with blindness, deafness, and neurosis.
Great Danes are at a incredibly high risk for intestinal complications because their frames are too big for their insides. Dachshunds have severe
back problems, and many have subpar bladder control.
99% of meat production utilizes factory farming. This contributes to world hunger since so much growing space is taken up for animal feed. The
majority of corn and soybeans produced in America do not go to human consumption, and instead are given to livestock. The confined space makes waste
removal difficult so there are often toxic animal waste pools near farms that are a mixture of all manner of noxious chemicals. The North Carolina
hog industry has damage many lakes and rivers when hurricanes either raise the water above the levee or collapse it altogether. The can end up in the
ocean and cause massive algae blooms, and collapses ecosystems.
I think if I had a choice to either be blown up by a rocket or live the lives of production animals I would gladly request the RPG. Clearly most of
the posters here are as guilty as that soldier, but at least the soldier can face what he's done (and also vouch form minimal suffering.) The
average consumer cannot.
