    They have a US puppet democracy, propped up by the most powerful military on the planet and taxpayer debt, just like the one in Iraq. Arguably two of the most corrupt governments in the world. Woo-hoo!!!

    Your bull**** is getting annoying....

    The dirty nasty truth of the job doesnít really sink in until youíve been it for a couple of years. If you arenít out there doing it daily you donít know what Iím talking about. You might think you do, but you donít. Until the day the realization really sinks in ...

    You just donít understand or care about things that donít immediately impact your own personal and selfish daily life. You have no comprehension of what an encounter with a rapist, murderer piece of **** terrorist is like or how these people act until YOU or someone YOU care about becomes the victim of one.


    You donít see the devastation and human tragedy these people leave behind so you donít care. You say you care, and maybe you do, just a little. Not enough to do anything about it, but enough to sit by and bitch about those that care enough to act.

    Fortunately, what you think doesn't affect post war Afghanistan. However, what the Afghans think of the US will affect post war Afghanistan.

    That's the point you do not seem to get.

    While I don't necessarily disagree with you, Cat's point about what the afghans view this as is right on.

    Afghans (the ones we are trying to help) are viewing this as a disrespect by the U.S.

    It's not just the terrorists that are being offended, it is the ones we are trying to establish diplomatic ties with that also view this as disrespectful.

    A corrupt Democracy is no better than a dictatorship IMO.

    Saddam was elected president for example. Who, are we to tell other countries at the end of a gun, how they must govern themselves?

    We can't even govern our own country very well. Ben Laden predicted that we would be defeated not on the battlefield, but by depleting our financial resources in continuous war. It seems some are set on proving him correct.

    Really? cuz, I don't see too much outcry about it, after all, you do realize that this is a three year old incident right? Where is the mobs burning the flag? chanting death to America over this? Or, even broadcast nightly on the news of the diplomatic kerfuffle? You know why you won't be able to cite one? Because there isn't any.
