My Pearl Harbor example was outrageous because I was countering an equally outrageous and specious argument. That it is OK to kill people after invading a sovereign nation because the invading army cannot tell the difference between civilian and terrorist so just let 'er rip is OK.<br><br>Did the Japanese do anything differently than what just happened in Syria? American forces moved to the border then crossed over a sovereign border specifically to kill people which they did. With the information we currently have the Japanese did a better job. They targeted the Navy. This current invasion seemed to only kill civilians although in some future press release the family that was killed might turn into terrorists.<br><br>We need to get out now. We are only creating terrorists who loath us with every clumsy move we make.<br><br>
I do not think any discrepancy of where the Syria Iraq border is has anything to do with it. Permeability yes, location, no. From a quick read Syria and Iraq have not had a problem with where either thinks the border is since 1937. Syria has a problem with Israel called the Golan Heights and with Turkey but nothing with Iraq.<br><br>The GPS receivers would know exactly where this undisputed border is.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Now when Obama is elected we may still find some situations like this occurring. So will we still see ourselves lambasting this.<br><p><hr></blockquote><p> Yes, of course it will happen and we should continue lambasting. But it might happen less frequently if we do not have forces in Iraq trying to patrol the Syrian border. If we have them there for a hundred years we will become immune to hearing stuff like this which would really suck. (Unfortunately we are already immune.) <br><br>There is a big difference.<br><br>
Also there was that story about the SAS invading a Spanish beach recently. They were supposed to be practicing an invasion of a beach in Gibralta. Wasn't that put down to someone misreading the GPS?<br><br>I used to think it was terrible that life was unfair. Then I thought what if life were fair and all of the terrible things that happen came because we really deserved them? Now I take comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe.
