    Gee! Allow us to profit from your vast knowledge of the enemy and tell us what the goal of a suicide bomber is.

    what some find objectionable is that he dares voice criticism where criticism is very much due. such as that photograph

    did we learn nothing from that tragedy called vietnam? we won every major battle - but lost the war. we do not win the hearts and minds of a people when we perpetrate a my lai upon them. neither do we win their support when we exhibit disrespect as is found in that photo

    those actions did nothing to quell the prospect that yet another resident will come to feel so ardently opposed to us that they would willingly give their life to take ours away. how does that outcome make us safer? how does motivating future suicide bombers advance our mission?
    But, when government employees piss away billions in tax dollars, under the current regime, you all are strangely quiet.

    Why is that?

    their goal is to:

    a. kill as many of the enemy as possible.

    b. receive a reward in Heaven for doing so.

    if committing suicide was the only objective, then that would not be required to be conducted in the presence of others
    given your considerable understanding of things military, i would have thought you would have already known that

    Killing themselves in a more effective attempt to accomplish the first two goals. Thunder's right on those points, imo.

    Oh, that's right. Obama is the prez, but he doesn't have to accept responsibility that happens on his watch, like every other president in history. I keep forgetting that he gets a free pass, because he's colored.

    Hey! My bad!

    Thunder was only partially correct.

    in 2012, we refer to to them as African-Americans or black. Calling them "Colored", is considered racist.
