    Identifying the causes for a response is not the same as justifying or advocating that response. Simply because one party is wrong does not mean the opposing party is right.

    Congressman (Lt. Col. Ret.) Allen West, on the Marines urinating on dead Taliban: I have sat back and assessed the incident with the video of our Marines urinating on Taliban corpses. I do not recall any self-righteous indignation when our Delta snipers Shugart and Gordon had their bodies dragged through Mogadishu. Neither do I recall media outrage and condemnation of our Blackwater security contractors being killed, their bodies burned, and hung from a bridge in Fallujah.
    Really? I remember a lot of media outrage. To the point where the Black Hawk Down incident was a major cause of our decision to pull out of Somalia. I seem to recall that Shugart and Gordon were awarded the Medal of Honor.

    For some reason the outrage never seems to be enough. And I actually understand that. But it is true there was outrage to those things.

    It is also important to note that those who committed that outrage did not represent us or this nation. That difference matters as well.

    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.

    All I ever saw were a bunch of liberals crying about how we provoked it and we deserved it and it's all Bush's fault.

    Your obvious visual handicap is not germane to the present debate.

    Bush wasn't even President at the time. My recollection is that people were very very angry at and disgusted by the Somalis.

    If that's all you remember, it reminds us how faulty memory can be.

    If you dont know what meaningful criticism is then nothing anyone says is going to make a lick of sense to you. You can criticize anyone in the world, but only meaningful criticism is going to actually help that person. Anything else only proves to make the person doing the critisicism feel superior.
    And no, i dont think that non-military people can meaningfully criticize the actions described in the OP.

    One thing is forever certain. The left and the enemies of democracy will be using this against the American people to justify further acts of terrorism.

    Yet when Americans, Australians, Brits, Nigerians or Canadians die at the hands of terrorists, it doesn't matter what their political persuasions might have been.
