    Well, at least I don't give a pass to our enemies while at the same time binding our own troops hands for these things like others.

    Afghanistan is certainly not the same culture as Iraq. They are worlds apart.

    No one gives them a pass, which is why there is no debate. You can't debate what everyone agrees on. But those with low nation esteem can't handle any criticism. And that is what we see whenever someone questions what we did.

    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.

    J, behind what? Baiting what? You diverted, not me. No one is arguing that what terrorist have done is OK. So,. there is no need to divert to them when we're actually debating the acts of our people.

    I don't understand why this crap keeps making the news. Stuff like this happens all the time. It should be a military matter; discipline the kids involved, then move on. There's no reason to trot it out on display for everyone to see, unless you wanted to somehow pretend this is new behavior in hostile territory.

    And I'm not saying it's right or okay, I just don't think it serves any purpose making it a public spectacle.

    Atrocities like this will keep making the news until we withdraw our troops. These actions undermine support by the folks we are supposedly there fighting for. It was the same in Iraq and Vietnam.

    "attorcities"?

    I think your hyperbole is quite hysterical.
