    Can't depend on government officials to do it for you... this is just sick... Drudge Report caption.. 'Military commanders brace for backlash.. White House works quietly to squelch."

    "This image shows the body of Gul Mudin, the son of a farmer, who was killed on Jan. 15, 2010. A member of the "kill team" is posing behind him. SPIEGEL published just three photos out of the some 4,000 images and videos it has seen."

    1) You just quoted the Daily Fail. Your argument is inherently flawed therefore, otherwise a more worth-while news agency would cover the story.
    2) "violence is feared in Afghanistan" - really? In a warzone? Shit. Wouldn't have seen that coming.
    3) Meh.

    1. Every news agency is going to cover it.
    2. But you already know about the existence of this sort of barbarism.

    Only an American would show such callous disregard for human life.

    I totally agree. There is absolutely nothing new to see here in this specimen of the kind of inbreeding and bad crystal meth which seem to be endemic in the MatSu valley of Alaska.

    I'd rather they do it there than do it here.

    Meh, I don't care where they do it. I'd rather they hadn't, but the US military is dealing with it, the US public will probably shoot one another a bit more often for a while, and there's nothing Anon can (or will, probably) do to speed the court proceedings up or give them harsher sentances.
    Whatever. Express suitable disgust and move on.

    Wait a minute, soldiers fighting in a war become dehumanized and completley dehumanize the enemy? This is truly unprecedented!

    FWIW, a letter of admonition to an Army officer is a lot more than a slap on the wrist. His career is over. I'm not saying that it's enough. I'm not saying that it's right. But a sense of scale may be worthwhile, no?

    Oh... and it's a fucking war, by the way. Sometimes, it's time to kill motherfuckers. That's the way wars work. Odious, stomach-churning and soul-sucking... absolutely. But war nonetheless.

    wars are carried out by states not by individuals. states shouldn't get to say 'kill motherfuckers' and just walk away. 'war is hell' is a bullshit excuse and you sound like you're intelligent enough to know it. U get a sense of scale.

    Yeah, that's a smart move. "Hey guise, let's do unspeakably evil things, and then document them extensively!"
