    I don't know, why don't you ask them?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

I have personally walked up to dead bodies and made comments about them that would surely make the average Amercian cringe. That's the way you deal with it. Sorry if that doesn't fit into everyone's perfect idea of an American servicemember but thats the way it is. If you don't like it, stop voting for people that send us to these stupid wars. All of you hypocrites want to throw stones at guys like me but you'll keep voting for these war hound president's we've had over the past 12 years. Screw you. Change your voting habits then come talk to me.
    I have a better idea: all the cats that are doing the bitching, can ruck up, grab a weapon and stand a post.

    I think you miss the point. What happens after they do this is a different issue. The fact is once they do this, someone will post it. That's the world we live in. One way or another, it will be out there for all to see. The only way to stop that, is to stop taking those kind of pictures. Those taking them have a PERSONAL responsibility not to do this. You want to criticize both, fine. But don't skip over the ones who created the problem.

    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.

    Very true! One of the big turning points in US sentiment, and that of the South Vietnamese, against the Vietnam war was after the pictures came out of the My Lai Massacre of women and children.

    I remember a trial, not any pictures.

    So your rationale is that if people in Somalia do it, its ok for the US to do it?

    I like to think there is a difference between us and the terrorists treatment of people living and dead.

    Or, demand that our troops be brought home from a futile war, just as we did in Vietnam.
