    I was referring strictly to the following analogy: "Taliban begins killing EMT/medics, we can now begin killing their bearded toweled medics...Is that ok?" That would constitute a war crime.

    The unprofessional conduct mentioned at the beginning of this thread is a different matter. I believe the individuals responsible should be held accountable, but their conduct does not rise to the level of a war crime. It was childish, immature, and unprofessional. A war crime is far graver.

    I read this and thought of Clayton Bixby. The black White Supremist.

    I am in a funny frame of mind today I suppose.

    One shouldn't compare, or confuse totalitarianism with conservatism...It is rather foolish to think that radical taliban terrorists are conservative in any way the same as that of conservatives in this country.

    taking pictures next to the corpses of dead enemies, has nothing to do with fighting a war.

    What IS a big deal is how these photos became public.
    It is true it's not new. When I joined the service, I saw this then from VN. It bothered me some then, and made me wonder about those showing them, but it isn't new.

    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.

    Its interesting how the same folks who said "they hate us & attack us because of our values" are now saying "war is hell and we should accept that and not cry over such abuses".

    they hate us because to them we are infidels and thus less than human. nothing we do can make them hate us any more. all it does is give the libbos something to cry over and rationalize terrorist scum behavior
