54. When you have the authorities concerned with law and order
above compassion, they are going to see "looter, thief" in every powerless person they meet. The Iraq National Guard troops were trained in , I can't remember the ominous wording exactly, the use of lethal force, and that was widely disseminated. Remember the old saying when you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail? When you're trained to act against terrorists, everyone looks like a terrorist, even your own countrymen!!! The National Guard should be trained for rescue, not fighting against terrorists.
