A lot of these young men and women have been raised and schooled in our God void liberal society which transcends all barriers including the military. A lot of them are void of any morals, ethics or values. Not all, most a lot of these men and women are not our parents military.

    Everyone considers their war to be a just war and can present the reasons why, from their perspective, war is justified and they are on the right side.

    Be it political or religious

    Of course they can, and do. If it is a religious war, though, then god is on their side and so they can't lose. Anything that they do is good, glorious, and godly, while the enemy is the devil incarnate and therefore less than human.

    That's necessarily true. WW1 and were purdy bloody. So was The Civil War. None of those were religious wars.

    This is not, and has never been good. It creates the Image of us as being savage killers. When that is not our mission in Afghanistan.

    What is our mission in Afganistan?

    We already got Bin Laden, didn't we?

    And he wasn't even in Afganistan. He was in a nation that is an "ally"

    Yeah? I think you may want to ask a few Cambodians about that. Or, perhaps, a few Russian survivors of WWII - almost a seventh of their populace was killed in that conflict. Or perhaps you could ask some Middle Eastern historians about the Mongol Invasions - they killed so many people that the Middle East didnt' regain it's pre-invasion population until the 20th Century.

    What is our mission in A-stan? Is it not to kill, the enemy by any means necessary?..Then how can, the actions displayed in those pics be more offensive than war already is?
