    I won't discount the average soldier's work... but:

    This is sick, man. Some people.. Reminds me of the Milgram Experiment:

    How? I was just saying this reminds me of the experiment where a group of people submit to authority while knowing their actions are despicable. Would you disagree? And how am I discounting the average soldier?

    Chill out, friend.

    I'm sorry, I must have overlooked all your posts lauding military service. Which threads should I be looking in again?

    I'm sorry, I must have overlooked the post that said I owed you ****. Can you point me in that direction?

    Until then, why not look up the Milgram experiment and try to wrap your tiny brain around what I was trying to say.

    Wait, how about I explain it because I have a feeling you'll never get it:

    What I was trying to say, before I was rudely interrupted by your incompetent post, was that my guess is most of the people had good intentions but were following orders (as the Milgram experiment showed most people do). You'll figure it out eventually.

    In other words, "Don't waste your time, X, you won't find any." See? I think I'm starting to understand you.

    In other words, X, if you can't be coherent, go somewhere else. I come from a military family, how about you, X? My father was a navy man and my grandfather served as surgeon in Korea. What are you, other than a commentator who improves nothing with his/her own input?

    Again, what did I say that was offensive to anyone other than the people who played poker with body parts were "sick". In fact, X, if you bothered to pay attention, you might note that I even gave those people an excuse. What are you so angry for? Do you disagree that playing poker with body parts is disgusting?

    Honestly, I'll take a warning just to say this: you're a dick man.

    Go attack someone else.

    Sorry, I don't use things my relatives have done to try to justify myself. I stand on my own.

    I've already said that nobody has tried to justify this, I'm not interested in offering those people an excuse but neither am I interested in wanting to judge everyone in the military by the actions of a few.

    Honestly, I'll take a warning just to say this: you're a dick man.

    Go attack someone else.
    You call me a dick but I'm the one doing the attacking. Could you be more clueless?

    Rev chose to use the words "wasting time" to describe talking about this. The point wasn't lost on me. He doesn't respect that boy or that boy's family. I recognize there are heroes, but I also recognize there are victims and they are just as entitled to recognition.

    Don't even pretend that if I killed your child or Rev's child and cut off his finger and used it as a chip in a poker game, you wouldn't consider it a "waste of time" to talk about it. The utter lack of compassion from you people is sickening.

    Anything that would dare soil the precious image of the military isn't worth talking about.

    People can shove their god damn patriotism right up their own ass when children are being shot down on the street and having their body parts cut off.

    The image of the military would be better served by dealing with the story of the "kill team" properly and honestly, by the military demonstrating quick, open and honest treatment of the story.
