I'm thinking a large portion of the American population are simply bat sh*t crazy. All they want to do is kill something. If not in our own country, then somewhere else.

What the hell is wrong with people? Is it in the water? Did their parents do some kind weird drugs that created genetic defects in their kids?

A man I work with was shot in the head last Thursday night and killed by his own son. What do we blame this epidemic of lack of self control on? I just don't understand what has become of our country and its people.

Oh you do not understand huh?

That's because you are an idiot, that's why.
But relax...... it's not your fault at all.
You're just your average idiot and there is nothing you can do about it.

But as a hint i'll give you this:

we are nearing the seventh billion voracious humans on this tiny grain of sand we call EARTH.

Does that ring any bell?
Probably not.

Human population is multiplying in an irrational manner.
Resources are diminishing.

The "poor" are ever increasing in numbers.
The more "we help" some poor not to be poor ...... all the more poors are produced.

What our armies are doing around the globe is called "CULLING" !

And we should be thankful to them for carrying out this ungrateful but necessary job.

And about that son shooting his father ..... expect more in the near future!

Who in his right mind is glad to be brought into this crazy world full of increasing violence ..... increasing subjugation to a power that be?
Where we all are slaves running a rat race for survival .... only to pay a share of our earnings in the form of "taxes" - that's protection money, to be allowed to carry on taking care of our livelyhood!

And who in his right mind would bring yet some more voracious humans on this poor raped Earth?

That father deserves what he got.
He probably made his son with the hope he would one day take care of his old age ......
Some sort of investment!
That's the main reason parents make childrens anyway!

The bastard.
Good thing his son shot him cold.

But why am i wasting my time with an idiot?

Beats me.

I say let's round 'em muzzies all up into reservations like we did with 'em Injuns and Aboriginals!

That way we can just grab what belongs to us anyway!

All that oil and other resources.

And by the way ... Only 60 today!

Sheeeet ..... Well we all have a bad day now and then!

Of course what i said doesn't makes sense ... to you and the likes of you!

Didn't i already tell you what you are?

These concepts are beyond the comprehension capabilities of idiots.
Like i said, it's not your fault.
You just can't help it, that's all!
Say thanks to your father for that.

BTW, you can only pray whatever god you believe in to be in such a good health (physical AND mental) as i am!

YOUR WORDS, not mine!!!

Admitting (even though indirectly) of being an idiot is a first step on the path of knowledge.

I -for one- understand that which intrigues you, so ... you can pull your own conclusions.

BTW, although it indeed is my lifelong hobby to insult everyone at least once in everyone's lifetime :

http://hhgproject.org/entries/wowbagger.html
http://everything2.com/title/Wowbagger+the+In...

... my calling you an idiot wasn't meant as an insult!

More like a matter-of-fact observation ...

PS:
In all my knowledge ... i can't help you even if you asked for it and/or i wanted to.
You'll just have to find your way ... one way or the other.

Hello fellow discussants,

We shouldn't be sidetracked by an alleged war crime of only a handful of alleged perpetrators. If they committed these crimes, I am sure they will be punished. War crimes are apt happen in spite of leaders' best intentions. The main thing is that they are being investigated and tried.

On a more important note however....

Many American, Canadian, Australian, UK and other International Security Assistance Force nations troops are signing up for second and third rotations to help Afghans be rid finally of the Taliban occupation forces in their provinces.

Many troops want to help Afghans win this fight for democracy.

Such is the powerful belief that democratic institutions can provide stability, order and good government Afghans who have suffered so much.

Afghans are entitled to democracy and human rights just like everyone else.

Afghans should not be abandonded to the fanatical, sectarian, radical, and adolescent Talibanist interlopers and intruders.

Patience, perseverance, compassion, and cultural competence and sensitivity to Afghans, along with increased stressing of the Talibanists will help Afghanistan's reconstruction and rehabilitation efforts.

I think it will be a while before the job is done.

Ta-ta,

H

Unless of course the leader's "best intentions" are more serious war crimes. In the case of the "Global War on Terror" and all the violence that falls under that rubric, our leaders intentions are what the Nuremberg justices described as "a war of aggression...is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole."

Fighting the Nazi Germans and fighting the Al Quaedaists and Talibanists does have some parallels.

In both cases the enemy was, and is, virulently antidemocratic.
