    I feel nothing but sympathy for our brave soldiers who have been soo traumatized by war & blood, they they lose all sense of right, wrong, and common decency....and engage in such disgusting & tragic behavior.

    they need our help...not our applauds.

    meh, I'm thinking this kind of thing is going to be like the guy that went nuts and killed all those civilians. Not considered such a big deal to the afghans as it is to the Americans.

    We need to just go ahead and admit to ourselves that our second IO priority is the American populace.

    well, that's a very American response, so I can't fault you on style... but I'm thinking maybe there are some "greatest in human history" slots we should leave to liberal atheists, like Mao
    Well, I guess since a civil well reasoned response is too much to ask for, I guess I'll have to settle for silly hyperbole. I prefer we work toward our nobler selves, and you seem to seek something worse to justify just about anything. I'm comfortable where I am.


    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.

    As a society, we are supposed to be disgusted by seeing GIs posing with dead Afghans but remain oddly unfazed by the fact that, presumably, those same GI's have recently just put high-caliber rounds through the enemies heads? These guys are trained to kill, ordered to kill, and then we suggest that they are assholes because they should not dehumanize the enemy they have killed? I don't get the selected outrage. This is what war does to some people.

    What if dehumanizing is the only way they can cope with the sitiuation they are in? Or maybe they weren’t cheering the enemy’s death and instead they were cheering their own lives? Cheering the fact that they are still alive and that particular wannabe suicidebomber will never again be able to attempt to kill American soldiers or innocent civillians.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    But these aren't even people they killed, these are morons who strapped on a bomb vest and killed themselves! It's no different than taking a picture of an accident on the freeway. These soldiers had nothing whatsoever to do, in this case, with the death of the Afghan citizen. They did it to themselves.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
