29. I can't even begin to express the contempt I have
for your remarks. And I don't give a damn if my comment gets scrubbed as an attack on you. Do you even know anyone that's served in Iraq? Stating that kids volunteered to go commit war crimes is vile and false. I don't for a minute buy into the line that they're all heroes but I'm not stupid or cruel enough to assume that they're all blood thirsty monsters who want to torture and kill Iraqis. They're humans in a bad situation, and they react in differing ways; some good, some not. I don't value their lives more than I value the lives of Iraqi civilians, but I certainly value them. As far as your gratuitous commnent about writing songs about killing Iraqis, that's bound to happen. Not only is violence corrosive, but it produces black humor. That happens among medical personnel in hospitals, and other places where there's a lot of death. In any case, you're referring to one person.

Hey, for your next post, how about a brilliant piece lauding those insurgents who randomly bomb, kidnap and execute Iraqi civilians?
