I'm not saying all liberals hate the military, I think Bear has a very healthy attitude and seems like an intelligent, balanced person. You on the other hand seem to troll bait around trying to inflame righty for the sole purpose of starting divisive arguments. You are not alone, there are righties that do the same thing and are just as destructive.
And you can kiss your own ass, thank you very much.
Dammit, I was starting to like you until you called me a intelligent, balanced person. I'm appalled, APPALLED...no wait, it was just the BBQ from last nite. Sorry.

Im sure there is many unreported cases of this same situation. It's done now, but God sees all. They will pay for their actions.

Does it/she/he? How do you know?

I have more faith in the U.S. Justice dept. in making them accountable for their crimes.

Well, that is an interesting take on prison overcrowding.

That's a cool painting. Is it titled?

I should clarify my statement not sure if it was taken right. In "unreported" I meant not caught. Hell if they were caught put em through the Justice system for sure. Prison overcrowding? When I find a solution for it i'll let you know

Don't tell me there was not an element of hate here, cause I wouldn't believe you.
First off talk with McBear if you do not believe what I am about to say.

The 5.56mm round FUCKING SUCKS!

I have personally seen men take no less than 12 rounds and keep on coming. It has very little stopping power due to its low kinetic energy compared to a 7.62mm.

Secondly, I disagree again about this being a case of dehumanization. Without going off on you, suffice it to say that you have not been in combat with people from this area.

You do not understand the militaristic mindset of these people. You may understand the cultural significance they place on "Might makes right" though.

I agree that Pantano went overboard by emptying 2 clips but it is most definitely not a case of him thinking these guys were less human.

You do not understand the significance of appearances in that part of the world when it comes to strength.
