    Take your hands away from your face..... and read...then think....then respond.

    PS....."ring ding"?..... pastry...or the sound a 2-stroke engine makes?


    So say it now then. And well be clear. Burning korans or juggling dead savage terrorist bodyparts on you tube are not "attocities".


    Agree?

    Yes or no.

    Thanks

    If a few of the far right don't wish to see these actions as atrocities, they can just keep their heads buried in the sand and be surprised that the Afghans and the Americans demand an early withdrawal of troops from there.

    Actually no. For example, there are no more waivers for not graduating high school....among other things.

    they're exactly the same if you categorize every country as either us or notus.

    Us: The USA, of course, the shining beacon on the hill
    Notus: All those other nations, every one either socialist of populated by brown skinned natives.

    Odd statement considering I just saw on the news today that the Afghan government is trying to get us to keep a permanent presence in Afghanistan...

    Really?

    Wow, the sensitivity and self importance levels are getting pretty high around here.
    Attacking the speaker is only one form of ad hominem. An ad hominem in general is an argument against the speaker or arguer instead of the argument itself. And yes, saying that my opinion is less significant because I'm not an Afghan is an ad hominem. It's a form of red herring, as it does not have any relevance to the actual topic, which is, the categorical classification of an atrocity.

    And no, the Afghan leader isn't absolute authority of the definition of atrocity just because it happened in his country. If you don't actually have any valid argument as to WHY it's an atrocity, then sit down. There's no point in having a discussion on a forum if all we're gonna do is say "Oh yeah? Well, this guy said this so you're wrong! Ha!" It's not productive. Again, if you ACTUALLY have a basis to say this is an atrocity, then express it, or, link to someone who expressed it.

    And, as I've said before, yes this shouldn't happen. It's a problem that needs to be solved inside the military because it is beneath the standard of behavior set by the US military. Despite this, to say this is an atrocity is absurd. It's not cruel, or unusual, it's just disrespectful.

    No racial component to it Ditto, but nice hackery move there.

    I suppose it's mostly socialism....

    or at least what some people call socialism.
