    Juggling peoples' body parts is an atrocity. Even more so when those who commit the atrocity hypocritically claim some sort of higher morality while doing so.

    How is it an atrocity, it's inappropriate, it's wrong, it should be dealt with, however calling it an "atrocity". is silly hyperbole. The dead savages in this case, I believe blew themselves up building a bomb to attack, US troops. Sorry, if I don't care they posed with the body parts.

    It's not an atrocity. To call it such, is the typical silly nonsense of haters trying to paint the US military as the other "taliban"

    The savages are photographing themselves in action for posterity. Only the cretinous jingoists would fail to see this.

    Well, given your sedentary and timid nature, I guess you wouldn't be able to see through the eyes of those willing to protect you.


    So the savages, are the guys posing with the body parts of the people who blew themselves up trying to kill them. but the dead savage scum, are, to you, not savages.

    Interesting.


    So when will you be joining Jihad?

    atrocity? no.

    violation of their code of conduct? certainly.

    these guys clearly need a psych. eval. and maybe a few weeks off, to regain their sense of purpose, mission, and decency.

    In reality, the Army is in the midst of a disturbing trend that threatens not only our immediate goals in the current conflicts, but, more importantly, the long term health of the organization. The fact is, while the Army has been lowering its entrance standards with regard to education, physical fitness, and crime since the end of the Cold War, that process has accelerated since the invasion of Iraq. And this is something that the incoming Army Secretary should address.

    Reclaiming Army Standards

    he longer the war continues, the harder it's proving to fill the U.S. Army's ranks. A strong economy also means there are easier jobs around.

    So the Army is accepting a growing number of new recruits with everythging from health and weight issues to lower academic test scores to criminal records.

    The number of incoming soldiers with prior felony arrests or convictions has more than tripled in the past five years. This year alone, the Army accepted an estimated 8,000 recruits with rap sheets, reports CBS News correspondent Kimberly Dozier.

    Military Lowers Standards To Fill Ranks - CBS News

    Strained by the demands of a long war, the Army and the Marine Corps recruited significantly more felons into their ranks in 2007 than in 2006, including people convicted of armed robbery, arson and burglary, according to data released Monday by a House committee.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/22/wa.../22waiver.html

    Just so you know, I didn't say waiver, as in a waiver. I said waver:

    wa·ver
    1    [wey-ver] Show IPA
    verb (used without object)
    1.
    to sway to and fro; flutter: Foliage wavers in the breeze.
    2.
    to flicker or quiver, as light: A distant beam wavered and then disappeared.
    3.
    become unsteady; begin to fail or give way: When she heard the news her courage wavered.

    4.
    to shake or tremble, as the hands or voice: Her voice wavered.
    5.
    to feel or show doubt, indecision, etc.; vacillate: He wavered in his determination.


    Waver | Define Waver at Dictionary.com

    I highlighted the definitions that apply to my meaning. So while I appreciate snarky replies, and am far from being above a typo in a rushed response (not something I care much about), I do want you to get the meaning of what is being said. I said the military wavered, became unsteady, fail to keep their standards. I hope that helps for clarity.

    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.

    Did the soldiers you say "juggled body parts" claim a moral high ground while doing it? Are medical students guilty of this "atrocity" when they goof around with body parts?
