    Since when is a man fighting at home against a foreign invader a "terrorist"?

    You are a Republican Party official's wildest dream, you are!

    You bloody idiot!!!!!

    The Taliban were gought because they rfused to aid int he capture of terrorists that were responsible for 9/11. They haboured terrorists as wel as being a a dictatorial, brutal, infrigning regime.

    Al-Quida are terrorists you moron.

    The Talbian allied with Al-Quida making them an enemy as well. It can be argued they are legitimate fighters and not terrorists, but since it was a war against them, they are allowed to be captured.

    The loophole the USA uses, is the regime fell and they are no longer valiad as legitimate, legal fighting force. That claim is questionable but Al-Quida are terrorists!!!!

    You are terrorists dream, you are a consipracyists dream, you are a left wing nut jobs dream, you are timothey mcvieghs wet dream!

    Still doesn't make them terrorists does it?

    Do you have any idea what you're talking about?

    And that would make them POWs.

    You're digging yourself into quite a hole here...

    Taliban fighters aren't terrorists, and not even 200 exclamation marks are going to change that I'm afraid.

    Sorry. :wave:

    Except we don't know that do we as they haven't been to trial. There have been some quite high profile cases of people in Guantanamo who were caught in the crossfire and were innocent. As you'd know if you read the papers.
    Anyway, even if they were "terrorists", so what? Does that mean that they should be beaten and tortured?

    most armies smoke it.

    most armies drink.

    the armies that smoke it but don't drink ...have an edge there don't you think?

    Most certainly. But I don't get this... who'd want to go and abuse prisoners high? Infact, who'd want to fing a war high? Unless you've got some Meth or coke in ya.

    who'd wanna get pissed in a war ...who'd want to even fucking shave!

    having a shit might be your last ...

    i honestly don't think most of you ...however well intentioned ...have a fucking clue about being a young man thrown into a war.

    some of you find going into town on a saturday night harrowing enough.

    guys out there will be self medicating believe me.

    to you ...having a weed may very well be associated with fgetting monged out on a couch.

    cannabis in dosage and environment is so many more things ...as are most drugs that actualy work.

    Hope I never have to find out what war is like to be honest... I can feel a big one coming though if we carry on this way. Us and America are only making enemies, bossing everyone about... you can't do this, or that... but it's fine for us to do it!

    Why must we go doing this? I don't doubt that war fucks with your head. And I can see the hatret it'd make... but at the end of the day, both sides just want the same thing.

    "I am filled with fear and tormented with terrible visions of pain. Everywhere people are hurting one another, the planet is rampant with injustices, whole societies plunder groups of their own people, mothers imprison sons, children perish while brothers war. O, woe."

    WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH THAT, IF IT IS WHAT YOU WANT TO DO?

    "But nobody wants it! Everybody hates it."

    OH. WELL, THEN STOP.

    :lol:
    Well, either way, its far to late to worry I guess. I guess... war is the only way to hold power until one lot dominates the world, then there is no-one to fight.

    I couldnt a soldier! I maybe a patriot but i am not a hero or anything! I would be killed straight away! step on a mine or somethin! My only hope would be in sniper detail, doing stuff wher eim hidden and dont have to do much in the warzone fighting.

    Where do you think snipers are? they're prob further into the warzone than anyone else. Plus if you get caught chances are you're going to be topped. Nobody likes enemy snipers.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Snipers are on hills, hidden in the bush, undercover of night, etc. they are not marching in defensive formation with a squadron ready to be taken out by a shoulder mounted missile.

    But they're not invisible. They get found, they get shot.

    Not as easily as regular troops. It isnt world war two with men in clock tours or snipers in the Balkans you know...I can not believe we are having this debate!

    True, did you hear about the Marine snipers in Fallujah? Someone in the Iraqi army gave their position to the insurgents, all were killed quite nastily. Ambushed up close. I cant remember for certain but they may have been decapitated after they were killed.

    I'd rather be a standard officer, I've decided. Running checkpoints, protection money, drugs, involving myself in local organized crime, selling arms, prostitution rings...I'd come out of the Green Zone a millionaire. If I'm going to be drafted (the only way I'll go to that hellhole) then I may as well make alot of money off of it.

    Cain,
    has no shame in his game.
