    frankly ric27, I find your hatred of the free exchange of ideas & feelings to be troubling.

    this is a debate forum. its created for the exchange of ideas and beliefs, including ones that YOU find offensive.

    while you have every right to vehemently disagree with someone's views, you don't have the right to tell them that they can't express such views.

    that's the beauty of America: as long as you don't threaten others you can say what you want and the gov. can't and won't stop you. and most Americans will respect your right to say what you feel, even if they find such views offensive.

    Express all you want.....Knock yourself out. As a matter of fact....get out and train with some real gun fighting kinda dudes and see where you stand. This isn't meant as an insult, just trying to help

    Point is, you have no ****ing clue about anyone's morals and ethics.

    I know that its unethical to take smiley photos next to the mangled dead bodies of the enemy, and it violates military rules regarding respect for the dead...as it should.

    That is reality. You seem to be trying to make an assertion that skips how we got here and what options were really available to the people of those countries.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    At best you could say that we enabled them to put their leaders in place...and that is something we should be proud of. Of course that would be lost on the loathers.

    In your world you disrespect the dead and praise the war criminals. His is preferable.

    ICC Elements of Crimes
    With reference to the war crime of outrages upon personal dignity, the 2000 ICC Elements of Crimes specifies that Article 8(2)(b)(xxi) and (c)(ii) of the 1998 ICC Statute also applies to dead persons
    Don't work out, work in.
