Response to starroute (Reply #103)

Tue Mar 13, 2012, 03:29 AM

104. i'm going to respond to this and (maybe) couple of other

posts by people who have been civil to me here. but after being called a killer, a hater of soldiers and white people, an idiot and squirrel shit, yes squirrel shit,. i'm done with this business. presenting myself for abuse from unhinged lunatics who believe they are morally superior to me isn't my idea of fun or intellectually stimulating (though your posts have been both).

i think your point about the defenselessness of a person being put to death has moral value and gives one reason to pause when advocating such a thing. but as you pointed out, for some people, and i am one, the innocence of these children and the culpability of the soldier who killed them separates the taking of their respective lives on moral grounds. for that matter, so does the process by which the respective decisions to take said actions were reached. the killer will get a trial and a chance to present evidence, cross examine his accusers etc. those poor little children had none of that. hell, they didn't even think they needed any of it. i simply disagree with you that if killing one is wrong, so is killing the other. hanging adolph eichmann was not morally equal to his part in the final solution, imho.

yes we as a nation have much more (than these victims') innocent blood on our hands, particularly in iraq where we launched a war of aggression. and as for this guy's mental stability, certain things have come to light which may negate my original opinion anyway.
do not think that you havenít given me a lot to think about. you have and I appreciate it.

i just got in, the hour is late and i'm going to bed soon.

cuidate y nos vemos
