Thou shall not kill....(15 posts)

....even if it is to gain $ on such things as the weapons expended, putting out burning wells, rebuilding Iraq afterwards, and IMF loans which the US will lend them and in return will own their oil wells to pay off the interest.

Every bullet that is shot, or missile fired, the blood of the dead is on that particular soldiers hands. Everything is a choice. And, they will have to answer to God for it.
Watch the movie "Sgt. York".jesse1

It's about a country-boy pacifist who is drafted for WW1 and comes to the realization that there are some things worth fighting for, even in the Lord's eyes. It's a great Gary Cooper movie and a true story about an American hero.

Does the Lord have eyes? I'm just kidding. I think the problem is that any person can in his or her own mind justify anything. Having rules which should not be broken may well be the most important things to human survival.
Excellent, excellent movie. nmKristin

If your "ideal" thoughts were followed by everyone that was not bent on evil, the evil ones would certainly rule the world. If everyone was truly a pacifist, those with evil intentions would have no one to thwart their evil ways. Innocence would die and all that would remain would be killers and thieves. Even David slew the Giant with intelligently applied force! Get a clue!

Who is to say that eventually David would not befriend the giant? The future is uncertain, and you are going to die anyway. You may as well do your best to do what is best. And, who is to judge that Sadam is a more evil human than any other leader. cough cough

maybe they got what they wanted: make america look murderous and depraved in the eyes of all muslim countries. make bloodbaths become work of western countries.
then they become martyrs, the only jobs they have in their hands.

They have no other jobs because the ruling entities in their countries keep them suppressed and uneducated. They are taught that the west is the devil and their enemy in order to divert attention from the calamity being perpetrated on them by those in power. If you took the time to actually look at the reality of this, you may see the bigger picture, and not just the simplistic view you obviously have.

so, the saudi aristocracy in al qaeda fall into the oppressed and ignorant cliche? or the hezbollah generals?
palestinians have one of the highest rates of education. it's cultural. they prize school and education but you see palestine teenagers who would be going to college soon carrying suicide attacks. is their cause right? yes(they were robbed of their land). is it the right way to do it? NO. is it because they are manipulated? yes. it's those that manipulates them in name of god, islam and whatever that i'm pointing my finger at. there's no plan with terror other than destroying israel, united states.
the terror is winning the propaganda war in the east right now.

no one forced these humans to kill each other. It is their own choices.

It is funny how the Catholic Church, right up to the Pope, will be so silent on issues of thier preists molesting children. Now they are vocal in opposition to the war. I think they need to get their priorities straight. And I am a catholic by the way.

There are a small minority of Muslims who are in support of killing Christians & Jews. Are we supposed to sit quietly for that? What religious leaders were vocal about Saddam slaughtering hundreds of thousands of Iraqis?

I guess if you are right these soldiers may have to answer for their acts in the afterlife. But you also may be asked to answer for trying to use God's name to help keep someone who already has the blood of a million people on his hands in power.

The question for which I do not have an answer is: Has Sadam himself killed anyone? If humans, at times, questioned their leaders actions maybe many attrocities in human history would not have happened. Did Hitler himself kill anyone?-Scary how people sometimes do horrible things without questioning hteir own actions?

News photos in today's paper.

First, a Marine doctor sitting in the dirt craddling a 2-3 yr old Iraqi girl in his lap. She looked injured but OK, almost relaxed and happy, but he looked almost distraught. Another photo showed a 4 yr old Iraqi girl being attended to by US medics for a bloody eye wound. She & her family had been caught in cross-fire... Her mother was killed and her father was begging to be uncuffed to hold his girl... I can't hardly type this...

No political points being made here... Just acknowledging the deep sadness I feel for this one little family. I have to think situations like that are incredibly hard on our troops... it looked like it in that Marine doc's face... Let's hope it gets finished very very soon.
