I wonder why the U.S. is so afraid of the International Criminal Court.

They feel the same about US soldiers. They were brainwashed to hate the US since they were born.<br><br>If you ask me, it's sad that people have to kill others to solve their problems, however necessary it may be. It's even sadder to hear someone enjoys it.<br><br>
rigger, are you actually defending the guy's theory that it's fun to kill people?<br><br>this thread should be a homerun for you. you could show some integrity and principle by distancing yourself from the guy. <br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato
Defending his or her country is a soldier's job. That doesn't always mean killing. But I guess that's lost on you. <br><br>Although I'd guess whoever mis-wired your brain enjoyed doing it. Because they did a really good job. <br><br>
I actually agree with Rigger on this one. <br><br>If I had the chance to shoot Al-Zarqawi or Osama Bin Laden or any of the insurgents.....damn right I'd enjoy it. I'd light a cigar, probably take some pictures and even stuff the head and mount it on the wall if I could!<br><br>=========================================<br><br>It's not that I'm always right, it's just that I'm so seldom wrong....
I dont know where you are coming from. In Paris Island 1952 we were trained to be killers and were reminded of it every day. to do a good job is laudable. I think the <br>corps still teaches that. Enjoyment is in the eye of the gunner.<br><br>
