    I never said you shouldn't. In fact, I pretty much said the exact opposite.


    When you learn to look at things from more than just your perspective, you can answer that question for yourself.


    I don't know. You probably have an answer that is insulting to liberals and I probably have an answer that's insulting to conservatives.
    ✥ We already ARE better than the opposition. We didn't ram two planes into a building thus killing 3000+ people, nor have we engaged in terrorist activities that have claimed numerous lives. The moment the Taliban decided to kill people in such a way and commit other heinous things, they LOWERED themselves to us.

    ✥ Oh, OK.

    ✥ Then what perspective would you have me look through to understand? Perhaps those people of those perspectives should follow your advice and look through my perspective.

    ✥ I have no insults for liberals. For the Taliban? Yes, as well as contempt. I merely wonder why, as I've seen in the past, liberals moreso are outraged, while conservatives moreso aren't outraged.

    This doesn't figure at all into my thought process when I see this. Whether or not the Talibans are humans, jerks, assholes or whatever, US Marines generally hold themselves to a higher standard than this (or at least they claim to, and I think that in the vast majority of cases they are true to their word).

    Isn't that what Honor, Courage, and Commitment is all about?

    An investigation has been ordered.

    It's funny, but a lot of the same people who worried about military decorum breaking down with the repeal of DADT seem to be the same people arguing that pissing on dead enemies is entirely justified.

    It actually makes it much easier to piss on a person if you've killed them first. The live ones usually don't like it so much and many can manage to redirect the stream when motivated by the attempt to do so in such a way as to prevent the completion of the act.

    The terrorists were from Saudi Arabia, not Afghanistan.

    It's a lifeless husk and decomposes as any other living thing does and it decomposes the exact same way as non-human flesh. No... it's definitely NOT human.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    1. In the big picture, I would agree that we are 'better'. However, in this specific instance, these specific Marines did something gratuitous and arrogant that the Taliban would do. Consequently, in this specific moment, no they aren't better.

    2. Yep.

    3. I already see it through your perspective. Not only that, I agreed with it. And as for other points of view, I already explained them in the first part of my response.

    4. This part of your post is BS.

    Yes, the Taliban should thank those Marines for increasing the poppy harvest next year. In fact, if they really cared about their countrymen, all members of the Taliban and Al Qaeda would line up in front of a M1A1 Abrams and aim their AK-47's at it. This would give the crew manning the Abrams positive id of a threat, resulting in clearance for them to mow them all down. Then, we could sell the ground they fall on to the Afghan farmer with the highest bid, give them the wheat to grow on it, and come home.

    Personally, I'm sick to death of the argument that we should give a flying flip what people who hate us anyway will think of what we do. Better not oppose the GZ mosque or burn the Quran or it'll make people mad. **** that. It, honestly, strikes me as a way to disguise concern or sympathy for jihadists by pretending concern for how it impacts our military. I could be wrong about that.
