We should give Libyans more guns to prevent this sort of thing.
that santa hat is absolutely killing me!
The same way as I feel when there is mindless violence in any part of the world we send soldiers to go and meddle in foreign affairs killing innocent people in their own countries , you have police shooting unarmed black kids in America and there is gang shootings all over the place , all these people are being killed for various reasons including who they are so this here is just one more example and you are right when you say it's not right , no violence is right
I suppose if it's just once that makes it ok then
How often do Americans get shot in Libya ?
I haven't forgotten , it's disgusting but it's no worse than what we saw of videos of out soldier tochering and killing young Iraqi boys for sport when they are supposedly helping them , you said the American guy was short for being American you may be right as there are people right here who are shot for being black and I gave you an example , my whole point is it's all unnecessary waste of innocent lives for the sake of satisfying political angles
I am not whining about the blacks as you call them I am just stating my opinion , obviously it's not what you want to hear but I stand by it , I know what the media has said about what soldiers have been doing but how many of then are in jail now for crimes commited against people they should be protecting ? You obviously see only the news that suit whatever image you want to maintain in your head and that's normal , I know there are some very good soldiers out there but it's not all of them like anything else in the world , all I am saying is violence is violence be it from a Libyan to an American black to whites or vice versa your question was what our thoughts are on latest Libyan incident my answer is it's just another example of mindless violence there is nothing particularly special about it as violence goes it's just as ugly as all the others all over the world including here
I agree that most are good soldiers I don't agree with them going over there to meddle and cause murders and end up losing their lives in the guise of helping when we all know it's really about oil if they never went there in the first place we would not be holding this conversation and I am not judging them I am judging the violent acts they end up inflicting and receiving , that's my unwavering opinion
If you are so sure it wasn't about oil then what was it about ?
All that has been done yet they are still there , Saddham is long gone
How long have they been in Afghanistan for ? How long has Obama been in office ? What does he benefit personally by keeping them there ?
There is gas and oil in Afghanistan for one so for Obama it's political , still doesn't make it right , he found those soldiers already in Afghanistan he did not invent a reason and send them there , he kept them there to protect America s interests , oil
That's what we come to EP for to discuss or debate or whatever , it doesn't always have to turn nasty even if it's heated but that's how we learn
could've happened anywhere in America...except you'd likely not be asking.
it's never ok...but, you'd likely not be concerned had he been gunned down jogging in America. I don't need to watch the news to know idiots are still senselessly murdering others here. so, why focus on an American killed in Benghazi? [does she know it's rhetorical? she'll figure it out.]
your conclusion is based on xenophobia and conjecture...no basis in fact requiring any critical thinking. it matters not the reason, unless you're prepared to discuss the reasons americans kill each other? then you can attempt to loosely try to make your point. short of that...he was murdered. nothing more...nothing less.
yep...total xenophobia. by your translucid deductive reasoning, any American killed in the middle east, by a foreign national, and in the absence of a killing of a foreign national during the same act of killing the american, means the American was targeted solely because he was American. however, by your logic, if a foreign national was also killed, then i spose you're saying they surely weren't out to kill the American. Supposition is the only evidence xenophobes need. An American was killed in the middle east. Oh well. The world hath come to a halt...
i know the history of our meddling in the middle east. i'm quite aware of who the provocateur is and it isn't them.
we can agree on that.
