What's the difference between the Jews and the Iraqis?
Edited on Sat Jun-07-08 08:18 AM by Dangerman
When the German Military were ordered by Hitler to kill innocent Jews, they've been called monsters.

When the US Military is ordered by Bush to kill innocent Iraqis, they've are called human beings who have no choice but to take orders and should be forgiven.

6 million dead Jews vs. 1.2 million dead Iraqis.

Ask yourself, what the hell is the difference between the Jews and the Iraqis? Really?

Aren't we all people living in this Earth regardless of difference in ethnicity?

1. Please,do not compare the war in Iraq
to the Nazi Holocaust,no matter how criminal Bush and his cohorts are and how evil this war is,Iraqis are not systematically being led to slaughter as jews and others were in Nazi Germany .The comparison is silly.

3. So, one life is more precious than another? I think both are brutal, and disgusting.
Different types of imprisonment.. but one could argue that the entire country is a prison of its own, where anyone may be killed or die for no reason...

2. Not to pick nits.
But I believe more like 6 million Jews were killed in the holocaust. A case could be made that we're not selectively targetting the citizens of Iraq, but both were travesties beyond words.

4. locking
from the rules:
Do not post broad-brush smears against US service people. Do not blame the troops for the mistakes of their officers or their Commander-in-Chief. Show the appropriate level of respect to those individuals who have put their own lives on the line to defend this country.
