    I will admit to being continually amazed at the number of people in America who seem thick enough to have failed to grasp that rather basic concept.
    The concept, the context, was paying for a war where US personnel reach this level.....the "it" that you (purposely) misunderstood.

    Thick, indeed.

    Japs. Krauts. WWII the greatest generation intentionally dehumanized the enemy in order to facilitate wounding and killing human beings. They killed surrendering Krauts. In some cases they took no prisoners. They pissed on enemy corpses. You know that phrase about kicking the sh*t of of someone? That came from kicking an enemy corpse until the intestines burst.

    It is good that war is hell, lest we come to love it too much.

    I wish we could learn to live without it. I do not believe we ever shall.

The analogy you use is assuming he's saying something different. That's not being consistent, that's actually entirely non-related.
    Nice argument. I like it.

    actually US personnel have generally fought this war cleaner and with more class and fewer of these kinds of incidents than any other serious conflict that I am aware of in human history, especially one that has gone on as long as this one.

    "thick"

    "reach this level" wow. now we know you don't know what you are talking about

    You could double its size so people don't have to spend quite so much time in combat. Or we could choose to win instead of merely waiting out the Obama clock.
    We could decide, as a nation, that we are not going to wage wars on the enemy's terms.

    We could win the hearts and minds. But we would have to have a president and pentagon brass with balls again. How likely is that?

They at worst disobeyed standing orders, a crime usually warranting reduction in grade and perhaps some confinement and a fine.
    Are there any among us who have not done something stupid in our pasts?

    This is prejudicial to good order and discipline. I think a very good wrist slapping is in order. I wish we had a picture of every single terrorist and member of the Taliban in exactly the same condition as the dead are in the pictures. We should not rest until we have a picture of an American soldier posing with every single dead member of the Taliban. Let's get them all. Strike a pose!

    First off, you would be hard pressed to prove such a claim since records like that do not exist, and I would venture that every war has a certain percentage that engages in that level of conduct. The article shows that discipline at that post was poor, it is leadership that allows that activity to bloom.

    "thick"

    "reach this level" wow. now we know you don't know what you are talking about
    I'm sorry....when did you show some understanding of what I was talking about?
