The likelihood is that this sort of thing has gone on during wartime ever since there were humans. The difference is, now it can be videoed and sent around the world in a matter of minutes. Before, no one but the soldiers involved saw it.
War is what it is. It involves killing and maiming the enemy until he gives up. There is nothing humanitarian or glorious about it. If we don't have the stomach for war, real war, then we shouldn't be starting them.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
Morals are subjective and are simply a matter of taste. My morals are different than yours or anyone else's, they cannot be used solely as a basis for an argument.
You find a pic of severed legs offensive, but not the act which caused them to be severed.
Thats bull****...and nothing more than false moral outrage.
How can you say, blowing someones legs off is ok as long as it has a military purpose/objective, but then taking a stupid pic with their disfigured limbs is a war crime?
Tell me, wise one?
