I don’t know whether you have seen these pictures or want to see them at all but I’ve heard they are not being published in the USA.
Have you seen them?
What do the American news say about them?
Although it’s obvious that these are exceptions (I have some faith in the human kind) it hits me hard whenever I see that. I find it difficult to maintain a psychologically neutral position towards America with the kind of shit that is obviusly going on.
I’m just trying to figure out what it’s like for Americans to basically be American. There are so many great things in and about America but then there are others that disgust me.
I’ve got people in my school whose parents are in the British Army and they themselves don’t seem to support the war effort. How does that work?
I’m really sorry for the soldiers that die and particularly for the wounded coz they are the ones that really suffer but how is there so much abuse going on?
I don’t mean to offend anybody I’m just looking for answers nobody seems to be able to give me here so I’m turning to you.
Btw, I’m German and I find it awkward to have the historical backround attached to the country and somehow my identity. I’ve just had an history exam today and that made me think about the “business” of history and politics even more.
Out of fairness, each picture should have a picture from 9/11 next to it. Or, perhaps pictures from Saddam’s victims – mothers crying while Saddam’s minions torture her children with power drills. Out of fairness, mind you.
I don’t want those guys at Gitmo tortured anymore than you do. They should each be humanely shot in the head.
Then, the Iranians, who unleashed these vermin on the planet, should be bombed into the Stone Age. Make Iran a prarie and let the buffalo roam…
You really are an idiot aren’t you? Because lunatics attacked our country and killed thousands of innocents, we can justify torturing and murdering our enemies? And did it ever occur to you that some of the people in Guantanamo are innocents, who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time?
There are plenty of men there who would love to fly a plane into a skyscraper, but there are also tons who were not “caught on the battlefield”, contrary to what Rumsfeld said. Try actually READING for a change, a couple of Afghans who were tortured and then murdered at Bagram were completely innocent.[/quote]
Gotta call BS on this one dude! Did these vermin EVER consider innocents in all that they do? They do not think like I do (I was going to say ‘like you and I do’ but you know…), they simply consider anyone western or American evil. They think of us as I think of cockroaches, to be wiped out. They’ll walk onto crowded busses with little children on board and smile as they kill them all.
I am sorry if innocents get killed in a war. I’m not God and that IS a tragedy of war. But note that I am sorry – are they? Do you think the scum that want to do suicide bombs over a few cartoons have any concern for innocents?
You need to rethink your position, quit listening to BS bleeding-heart libs, whose goal is to bring down this country by corrupting our minds. Start thinking like an American. Ignore the BS from the looters’ culture on the looters’continents.
