    interesting position to take
    No, it's not, "criminal". Offensive? Yes.

    I doubt that there is any prosecuter--civilian, or military--that is going to use a newspaper article as evidence of a crime.

    Wouldn't deal in absolutes, as that's a fool's argument, but I would argue it happens more readily during war. Nor would I argue that sociopaths are only in the military (boy, do you make huge leaps), but I would argue that it allows a sociopath a place where it is easier for him or her to get away with such evil acts.

    I wonder what the next leap will be?

    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.

    really it does? ever been to war? I didn't think so...



    Ok hero, list all the incidents reported over the duration of the war. We can wager how many times I can eclipse that in the same time period civilian side.

    Well, you'd need a percentage as there are more people and time at peace. But, it isn't rocket science. And we do see this in war often, remember VN? Name a war where we didn't see it? And how often do you think people during war got away with such brutality?

    No I don't, I wasn't there.


    How many folks get away with horrific crimes as civillians? your attack on the military is rather shocking coming from a veteran such as yourself. an honest person would state there are sociopaths in all walks of life, the fact some got into the military is not a black eye on the military but a shocking reminder that there are nuts out there.

    what next are you going to remind us that the tea party is white?
