I am going to consider this an extension of the post that I recently did about the Marines peeing on the dead insurgents. This upset a lot of people that our Marines were filmed doing such a thing. What would put them in that mindset? Don’t they realize they are just going to make the enemy hate us more? The enemy will retaliate. These are some of the things I heard about the Marines’ actions.
First off, they hate us because of who we are and what we stand for. It would be impossible for them to hate us more than they already do. It does not matter what we do, their hate meter is topped out. The fear of their retaliation is the basis of what they want. They want us to fear their retribution. Here is a suggestion, look up the definition of terrorism. This is how they operate. We can not stick our heads in the sand and live in fear of what might happen if they get mad. So, that brings an old phrase to mind, “piss on them”. I guess that in a way is what these Marines did.
As far as why they would do that or what was their mindset. I takes a different mindset to survive in the situations that our combatants are put in day in and day out. With that, I bring you a picture of Middle Eastern man. How does this picture make you feel and what mind set does it give you? I wonder if he is worried about offending us? I wonder if his media rakes him over the coals for his attire? Food for thought.
