Warning: My personal opinion about killing innocent people
 Advertisements [?]Edited on Wed Feb-06-08 08:27 AM by Angela Shelley
I´m writing this because I´m ANGRY about a comment which I recently read in an internet forum.

In this comment, it was suggested that using air strikes against other countries was a good thing, because less US soldiers are killed during air strikes.

In this comment, it was stated that if Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama would be elected, they would pull the troops out of Iraq and return to the practice of using air strikes.

The warmongering population in this country is obviously larger than the statistics show.

It makes me ANGRY when a person openly expresses his concern for HIS soldiers while at the same time expressing NO CONCERN for the welfare of other innocent human beings who are killed by air strikes.

Health care, education, and the economy are issues.

DISRESPECT for HUMANITY is at the CORE of each issue.

Edit: Please excuse the repetition, but my first message was locked.

1. I see your point, but on a practical level fewer people died in the airstrike containment program

And thats a good thing, no?

3. Intentionally misses the point. And I'm guessing air strikes kill more civilians

5. Staying on the practical level ... 
 Those WERE INNOCENT PEOPLE, and just as valuable as a well-trained, well-educated US Air Force pilot.

Sorry, I am not willing or able to compare the efficiency or effectivity of military tools

4. We live in a culture od death. The answer to everything is
 to kill somebody. It may not always be with a gun. It could be the denial of healthcare that results in death. Bush is the worst of the worst. Katrina, Iraq, 9/11 (Yes he was the unfortunate idiot in power when we were attack and ignored 3,000 people that were incinerated as he read My Pet Goat to kindergarten children.) People love to see violence in movies and video games. The naked body is banned but depicting the bloody body of an automatic weapons victim is OK. This society is sick. This society put a criminal in the White House.

9. You are totally taking that quotation out of context. 
 The post was in the context of ground war vs. aerial striks.

The guy did not seem to me to be condoning war, but to say that aerial warfare is preferable to ground war because it keeps American soldiers out of harm's way.

I think you've been unfair to the poster you're targeting.

I don't know why I thought this thread was going to be about abortion.

In Iraq War 1.0 Saddam boasted how he was willing to lose 10,000 troops on a single day and if he could inflict similar casualties on US troops the US would lose.

Our 7 week air campaign so overwhelmed Iraqis forces they surrendered en masse despite threats of execution from the Ba'athists. We all remember the long lines of surrendering troops.

We saved countless lives.

A military opinion seriously from anyone at the DUmp is like putting Capt.Kangaroo in as Chief of Naval Operations.
