You're bordering racism because you're instantly assuming that because they're Afghani, that they're barbarians. How do you know this guy didn't fight
with a bit of honour and honesty?
Afghani? Who is saying they're barbaric because they're Afghani? I didn't. I say they're barbaric because they're Islamist extremists
believe women have no rights to education, who behead people who do not believe in Islam and stone people to death. I couldn't care what race/colour
or country they're from.
You however, do... Fascinating you assumed I was talking about Afghani people when I was talking about religious extremists. You seem to be the one
with racial issues, not me.
My point is, that if you're saying they are barbaric and deserve to die for doing stuff like killing unarmed men, then why do you condone it
for our own troops?
I'm not - I'm tarnishing both with the same brush. I'm saying if BOTH sides are in a war, then what difference does it make if one side executes a
soldier? People like you are saying we in the West should NOT execute an injured enemy. They would - why shouldn't we? All I'm saying is it's war -
there's no "appropriate" way to act when you're killing people...
It's like you're saying it's not ok for them to do it, but it's ok for us to do it? How do you come to that conclusion? My only thought for you
thinking this is because we're mostly white and they are brown? That is the only difference between us.
I'm not, at all. THAT'S my point. Why is our soldier being convicted of murder when he rightly executed an enemy soldier on the battlefield when
they, the Islamist extremists, would and do the same? Why are the western forces being held to some "higher standard" of war operation when the enemy
I would rather, they treated us like crap and we treated them with respect then while the rest of the world looks on (including the Afghani
people) they will not think we're ruthless invaders who have come to **** people up!
WTF?! WHy should we play by the rules and they don't? Because in that case, we always lose. Perception is b*llsh*t. It changes by whoever spins the
best rhetoric and propaganda - on both sides. It's subjective and it doesn't make a difference to the outcome.
Especially the Afghani people, why do you think there are no end to insurgents that are willing to do barbaric things to British troops?
Because recruitment is at an all time high when the foreigners who are invading are killing unarmed people and bombing civilian structures.
I agree with you that war is ugly, there is nothing good about it and it will bring out the worst in people. That doesn't mean we should agree with
No - war is bad all round. But if we're engaged in it, why "act" like some moral do-gooder? Like we have "the right" to do it because we doing it
under the guise of liberation and freedom?
It's either war, or it isn't. There isn't an in between and the fact that our guys get judged and sentenced for killing a enemy who JUST TRIED TO KILL
THEM is utter madness. We may as well stand around with flowers and ask them to be nice to us or else we'll get sued.
