    maybe you should be more like me and get on topic?
    I think the Military will find that parading around with human body parts is desecration of corpses, in addition to any charges associated with photographing them.

    Obviously, you totally missed the point...but...that comes as no surprise.

    Let's have some more history lessons.

    This is the grape of a Japanese soldier, hung in a tree by American troops.



    Here are two Marines, "stewing", skulls. i.e. boiling the flesh off the skull.



    WW 2 is a perfect example, because it's the last, "clean", war that we fought...according to the Libbos.

    What is your point, that we should have no higher moral ground than our enemies? Is that what you think the military code is?

    Tell us what first-hand experience you have about the military. Thanks in advance.

    Seriously, it's one thing to hate the wars... I sure as hell hate the wars, and have been ardently against them since the beginning... and quite another to hate the soldiers. Some people seem to think if the former applies, the latter must also apply. That makes me sad.

    These are basically kids, who have lived through things that nobody should have to live through. And people here want to ruin their lives because they did what every soldier of ever war fought since cameras were invented has done. When I was in high school, one of my teachers showed us pictures he took in the Korean war. Pictures of American soldiers with enemy corpses.

    Being against the wars doesn't mean being against those who are tasked with fighting the wars, and suffering all that comes with that. I'm actually pretty sad about what I'm reading here, the complete lack of understanding of what these young men have gone through, all of their pain, their trauma, everything they've endured all swept away because of a picture. Ruin them for life? Really?

    That's really... words escape me.

    Sounds like you are projecting.

    My point is, moral high ground don't mean **** on the battlefield.

    You should be licking these guy's asses, because if not for them, your ass might be out there on that battlefield.

    Libbos hate anyone associated with the military. They wait, breathlessly for these moments when they can express that hate and still look cool.
