    Unnatural borders do not define a country.

    A country is first born.
    It exists within a framework.
    In other words, it has natural borders.
    I see what you're saying, but it really seems irrelevant. There is definitely a difference between OIF and OEF, militarily speaking.

    I prefer humanity as a whole.

    I think this whole mess it idiotic, sad, and unfortunate. But I don't consider it any more tragic than the nearly 115 fatal car accidents per day in the US, or the nearly 1500 people that per day die in the US due to cancer, or if anyone of these things (including the massacre) happen to a country that America considers an enemy.

    I say all this because I bet a great number of people would disagree me, thinking that it's a terrible thing to happen to US, but a victory to happen to another (i.e., enemy) even though to them it's the same horrible violation humanity.

    weird that a shrink would do it. kinda reminds me of a lesser known not half bad Jeff Goldblum movie (not deep but mindlessly enjoyable after a couple of beers) call Mr. Frost. Where the devil incarnate is able to make people do so very bad things. This is more creepy

    That is the nature of being aligned with a particular side.
    No... That's being biased!

    There's virtually no difference between bias and partisanship.

    Our enemy kills themselves to kill others/us. It's apparent they don't place as much value on mortal life.

    Beat, you're too kind for trying to reason against their dumb-bunny moral equivalence.

    For the last 90 years, "the enemy" has consisted exclusively of expansionist authoritarians or totalitarians that mobilize criminals and compel unwilling participants. Few cheer deaths of the latter, however much they may contribute to all manner of horrors.

    If there are any whimsical introverts who disagree with me, by all means: seek out "the other side" and criticize them, in person, precisely in the manner reserved for those who protect you. Prove to us how interchangeable everything in life actually is.

    A rather infuriating story. This is why we can't have nice things.

    What makes things worse is he's a Major?? This is a volunteer effin' army. He had to of known by the time he got that rank if he at all liked this job or not. What a lame excuse for taking life. "Pretty upset" about deployment and "oh no.. discrimination in the army?! NO WAY!" What a fucking joke. I hope we slaughter that man and bump our death row toll to 406.
