    Yeah, yeah... I get it. The US is in a war for world hegemony and sacrificing lives for oil. Your worldview is clear. Just to be sure:


    Do you consider the victims of terrorism to be collateral damage in a war for world hegemony?

    Is the US worse than terrorists, because the US does it for oil, whereas terrorists do it for "revenge" and nationalism?

    Why do you leave out ideology as a vector, while including revenge/blowback and nationalism?

    Yeah, all the context that you prefer to ignore in the creation of your straw man. Got it!

    What exactly are you talking about? Are you speaking of the Iraqi civilians killed in our war on Iraq?

    Is the US worse than terrorists, because the US does it for oil, whereas terrorists do it for "revenge" and nationalism?
    I don't condone the killing of civilians no matter who's flag its done under. And yes moralistically, I consider killing to control another's property to be worse than killing for self defense, or to revenge a countrymen's deaths, such as when we killed Bin Laden.

    Why do you leave out ideology as a vector, while including revenge/blowback and nationalism?
    Because ideology has played a lesser role than revenge/blowback and nationalism.

    Update:

    Two U.S. Marines were referred to trial by court martial over their alleged involvement in a video showing troops urinating on dead Taliban fighters and posing for pictures with casualties.
    The U.S. Marine Corps announced the criminal charges Monday. The incident allegedly occurred in July 2011 in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan.
    The charges are against Staff Sgt. Joseph W. Chamblin and Staff Sgt. Edward W. Deptola, both based at Camp Lejeune, N.C.
    The two also were charged with other misconduct on the same day as the urination incident. That includes dereliction of duty by failing to properly supervise junior Marines and failing to stop and report misconduct of junior Marines.
    Three other Marines were given administrative punishments last month for their role in the urination incident.

    So you support actions like the urinating on others?

    Well, I certainly don't. But I do understand that there are sometimes shocking--and also isolated--errors in judgment made by young soldiers at war.

    The only problem that those marines et al face over there is having a camera.

    No, that's not the only problem. In fact, it's not even a significant problem, IMO.
