It's lazy and cheap, but sadly works, tarring the other and helping to assure low participation in the process.

    Yep, and how many coffeepap smilies, and name calling your opponent "silly" have YOU used Joe?

    What do you think that has to do with what I said. You or some poster here isn't a party. You do understand this, right?

    And if you're internalizing this, consider that what I complain about above is what I call silly and use the coffee paper smilie for. It is because posters like you overgeneralize, rely on outdated stereotypes, and seldom ever really debate an issue. And yes, I call that silly and lazy. Stop trying to frame the debate as evil lefties versus righteous American patriots, and your side won't be considered so silly. Understand?

    Childish name calling noted, but no surprise.

    "President Hamid Karzai said Thursday that a speeded-up departure of Western troops from his country is the only way to prevent a recurrence of 'painful experiences' such as the sight of American soldiers posing with the body parts of dead insurgents... Karzai called the behavior depicted 'inhumane and provocative.' ...The palace statement said Karzai sought an 'accelerated and full transition of security responsibilities to Afghan forces, so Afghanistan can take over its own destiny, and thus no such things can be repeated by the foreign forces in Afghanistan.'"

    So your answer to a simple question, and call for introspective thought is met with name calling, generalization, and that coffee pap smiley. Got it....You know Joe, Alensky tactic that you use is exposed, and quite transparent. You should get a new bag papa.

    You made no such called and asked no reasonable question. If you had, I would have answered it accordingly. It is not me running around going conservative fascists this and conservative communists that. When you and others do that, it is you who are being silly and mimic what I complain about with both parties. Hell, you can't even discuss a point without misrepresenting Alensky. It speaks to your indoctrination, not mine.

    Who is "they"? We were talking about Afghanistan.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Well, you know, they, them, not us. But it doesn't really matter. If we find someone else who does it or worse, we're cool. We can't even suggest that they shouldn't do it.

    U.S. troops posed with body parts of Afghan bombers - latimes.com

    All of these guys who are doing this are a disgrace to the United States and the military.



    I find it far less offensive than most. War is hell. Taking pictures of the body parts of those who tried to kill you, meh.....



    dumbasses should never have taken any pictures.
