Actually, forget about anything else I wrote. When you say "I can't wait to turn on CNN and see that we've gotten to [bombing them back to the Stone
Age]" it really shows me the type of really horrible, disgusting degenerate you are.
You are a sick, sociopathic individual with no real compassion. You are the same disgusting type of person who, when wielding power, makes the same
kinds of decisions those in power are making. You see war as entertainment, turning on CNN to get the goose-bumps and thrills from watching anonymous
bombs fall from anonymous planes onto anonymous buildings and houses and neighborhoods. But they're not anonymous, there are children and families
with pets and lives and loves and real stories living in those homes. People who just want to live their lives. Despite differences that might exist
between our culture and theirs, there are still more constants than things that deviate. There are still parents wondering how their grown children
are doing. There are still people hoping for a new job or worrying about financial issues. There are people standing in the kitchen cooking and
laughing and talking about their grandparents from when they were children.
I can easily think back to every moment with family and friends, sitting around, barbacuing, playing cards with my grandmother or helping her clean up
her garden, discussing the next day's fishing trip with my dad while my aunt cooked us dinner, playing board games with cousins...I don't know, but
I've never tried to get nuclear weapons despite what the US government has done, but I certainly wouldn't want to have bombs dropped indiscriminately
on me of my family or loved ones because that is what the government has done. I really wouldn't be able to stomach it, so I'm capable as an
unfreightened, rational and compassionate human being to transfer my experiences onto those of the people of Iran (or Iraq or Afghanistan). That's
called humanity. That's called compassion.
The soldier dropping the bomb is as much a victim as well. You sit back in your armchair for the "show" on CNN and some young kid is thrown into a
situation he doesn't understand. I talk to 18 and 19 year olds all the time, either through work or teaching them and they don't know anything.
They're young and immature. And for your pleasure and enjoyment, your blood lust, you would just as easily pollute these naive minds with death and
destruction and turn them into killing machines for your in-between-commercials-viewing-enjoyment. I bet you are the type of person that enjoys the
rush of the leaked army videos showing body-shaped heat signals on a black-hawk computer screen running into the gray scale void until the sparkles of
gun fire make the body-shape stop running, or explode, or fall apart. For as disgusting as that is, it's also really sick that we are capable of
turning those 18 year olds into that type of person and you live that vicariously.
You disgust me.
