i find this story extremely disturbing.bottom line is, even if the story does change and it's not as bad as it looks right now, there are lots of people who will never see it any other way.
I'd be interested in hearing about how these matters are discussed internally. I suspect there is an overwhelming resemblence to the hegemonic code of silence you get among police officers: "these matters are complicated, there's more than what the press is reporting, few bad apples, etc." Would you be able to speak out about this in a formal manner Stan?
It's a shame this happened, assuming the article is true.This, of course, is just one more example of why war is to be avoided at all costs
The key term is avoid. That doesn't necessarily require everyone on the planet to become friends; it just means acknowledging that there are other ways to resolve conflict. War should be a last resort, when every other option has failed.
Oh ... well as long as you agree. Plus straw man arguments are so fun to make.
you think ahmadinejad is comparable to hitler?
