Well, I see what you are saying, but honestly, I will point my finger at Bush & the Pentagon, who command those soldiers to kill. They know that what they are doing is absolutely horrible, & I suspect that because they feel guilty, it is all the more difficult for those big shots to actually own up to their crimes. & furthermore, who ultimately pulls those triggers & kills the Iraqi civilians? Why don't our troops revolt & choose not to kill in the name of a greedy Uncle Sam? After the Vietnam war, we should all be more aware of how this government really works. I protested, etc., but since those big shots don't seem to listen, then it should be the obligation of those armed forces to educate one another on the facts & stop things from continuing at their level.
I'm tired of people saying "We are all at fault" & then never owning up to the damage they actually are responsible for. In this way, the cycle never ends, right? I am responsible - I recycle (have recycled since grade school), talk to people about global issues, attend as many meetings & protests that I can, etc. etc. The fact IS, though, that other people AREN'T doing that & simply DON'T care. So we ALL suffer in the end. This is ridiculous!
