So you are calling our Air Force and Navy personal mass murders of innocent Iraqi.
In your eyes they’re the same as the people who brought down the towers.

Nice trying to put words into my mouth.

Our troops did the job they were ordered to do by their Commander in Chief. Also, you forget that many of the civilians have been killed by the sectarian violence and civil war that started as a result of our invasion.

Shock and Awe type of invasions on urban settings kill civilians. That is a fact of war. It is one reason I am so opposed to the Iraqi war. It puts our troops in a moral conundrum in that they are there and must follow lawful orders yet the war is based on specious reasoning. Many will have issues with this war until the day they die because of the poor decisions of this Administration.

And you seem to know many of them, why is it that the ones you know, bitch and moan about this administration and this conflict, but after 4 years still are wearing our uniform?
Must be the pay.

Well said. The Bush apologists' defense tactic is to present exactly guage's argument. "You are blaming the troops for these deaths or accusing them of being barbarians."

NO, I am accusing Bush of being a war criminal and issuing our troops orders based on lies. I am repulsed and exhausted by the sheer incompetence of this administration. And the whining by the administration's supporters, especially about Clinton, instead of facing the pattern of utter failure and calling like it is.
