    Oh, great. Just ****ing great.

    Look, if some of you want to argue that it's not our fault someone else used human shields, fine. If you want to argue that that blood is on someone else's hands, alright, I guess. It's a seriously gray area in the already muddied code of war-time ethics, so I guess I can tolerate an argument along those lines.

    But cheering? At the death of children?

    **** you, ****necks. I don't need to point you out, you know exactly who the **** you sick mother****ers are.

    Oh yes, our military is just so awesome. It's JUST

    AWESOME.



    This isn't awesome.

    It's a damn mess.

    Screw you people for cheering over it. That's some seriously sick ****ed-up **** right there.


    I don't have a problem with the military in and of itself. I come from a long line of people who were proud to serve. I'm down with protecting your country.

    This ain't it.
    I remember reading a book... Looong time ago when I was a kid. Ficticious book but a good one. And it described how masses of people would watch videos of people being exploded. Their body parts and limbs flying through the air in a horrific display of voilence. And the people cheer with glee. Good book. Can't remember if it was Brave New World though. Damn my stoner brain.

    Can you imagine 1942? I'm sorry, you can't attack those Nazi troops. They look at ease and are not attacking anyone at the moment. No it doesn't matter that they're armed. They're just hiding behind a building while allied vehicles are coming up the road.
    The difference between the insurgents and the German military is that the insurgents use liberal weaknesses to get Americans and the rest of the world against the U.S. military: they use children as shields.

    And all of a sudden it's the U.S. military who are the bad guys! WTF?!

    I can't put my finger on it either, but my gut tells me it was 1984.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Someone was going to die that day, and it sure wasn't going to be on the side of the U.S. military. Not today.

    To be most effective, the attack by the Apache and how the crew handled the threat is not random behavior.
    And earlier I said I understood why at first they shot because it did look like he was holding an RPG. MY problem was after that part.

    Now I remember. Lot's happened since then. It was nothing personal.
