It's the Iraqi's fault that any of this happened because they allowed insurgents to hide within the civilian population.
Now think that those people who consider the US government evil had a huge army (this is purely theoretical). and would invade america to "free" you from the evil rulers. While doing so they´d be killing every military and homeland security and everyone with a gun basically.
would you allow your uncle or neighbour or friend to hide in your house?
you´re argument is invalid.
The corporations own the media and the government and education, all of which are used to control the people. That is why, in the end, the internet will become a regulated nightmare. It, currently, is out of corporate control.
Score so far: Comcast (corps) 1 : The People 0
NB: I'm pretty much agreeing w/ you here, shocking I know, but find it odd that you believe the people have the power.

OT never goes full retard:
And resistance members in France during WW2 for example were always aware that if caught they would be killed, and many members of the french resistance acknowledged after the war that they were aware of the dangers they were putting their fellow countrymen in by helping the resistance.
These 'innocent Iraqi civilians' continually stood by and said nothing when US patrols drove past and were killed by IED's that they watched the insurgents plant. They said nothing when watching insurgents setting up an ambush for US patrols. They said nothing when watching an insurgent wrap explosives around his body and then walk towards the US forces to suicide bomb.
They deserved every fucking thing that happened to them.

I could be mistaken but "Hotel Two Six" was taking fire and called in "Crazyhorse One Eight".
And those guys had weapons. Just b/c some journalists were embedded w/ insurgents is no one's fault.
I feel bad for the guy walking past the building right when the missile hits.
But in all uncertainty and chickenshit fear of losing face against a 12 year old boy with an assumed RPG, call in the carpet cleaners.
That's US ROE in a nutshell for you.

OT never goes full retard:
maybe those soldiers were led to volunteer by false pretexts, maybe they did it for the money, or maybe they had yet another reason, but nonetheless they volunteered.
the insurgents did not volunteer their country to be invaded by a foreign military, they are fighting for their own freedom. their idea of what freedom entails may not gibe with ours, but then we dont get to decide how they live, and then impose it on them at gunpoint. that doesnt work in reality.
the only ones who are benefiting from this war are the military industrial complex and the politicians in their pockets. there is nothing noble about what our troops are doing. they arent helping the Iraqis, and they sure as fuck arent making America any safer.
and of COURSE they dont warn American troops about IED's. if the Chinese invaded America to save us from "The Wallstreet Gang" that is dominating our government and making a mockery of our so-called democracy, even if that is technically true, would YOU warn the foreign occupiers about the IED's that your patriotic neighbors planted in the road? if you would then you are a fucking traitor.
