Response to DearAbby (Reply #29)

35. There are tons.

The East German Stasi. The murders of over 30,000 under the repression of 'Papa Doc' Duvalier. The killing fields of Cambodia. Tribal warlords in Africa, with their child soldiers. Slavery that exists today throughout much of the world. I've already listed some others. The prison camps of North Korea.
This planet sucks. Political leaders in man countries are killing their people every day. Millions have died, and still millions of others probably will die through murder, neglect, and repression by selfish assholes with a cult of personality around them. It's terrible, but we can't attack every nation that's doing this.
The events are Syria are only 2 years old. The rest of the crap has been going on hundreds of years. You asked me to define an atrocity. Tell me where we should send the US military. You do realize that to stop all of this stuff, we'd need to quintuple the size of our military. And probably repress much of the planet. You want to do that?

Edited to add the Iraqi rape rooms. You glad we went in there and solved that one?
