have committed and, if they are not taught, it is quite natural to try not to think of them, anyway. Human beings are the most inhumane animals on the planet without regard for race, creed, nationality or religious affiliation. What they can do to each other by dehumanizing each other, (which, by the way, starts much the same way you have just tried to dehumanize the American soldier), is very much unthinkable.

There is no excuse for the behavior of these Marines in Haditha, but they are by no means the first and only warriors in the history of warfare to go beserk. It is because of their nature that they committed these crimes, not their nationality. (Although, I will concede, had their nation, my nation, not committed the attrocity of making war in the first place, this surely would have never taken place, but that is not what I am talking about here.)

People like to work, live, trade with and socialize with like-minded people. That's why we're here on DU, as opposed to hanging out at Free Republic. It's just the way people are. It's natural. We are tribal animals. It's also natural as "tribes" grow and become more powerful, they discover they have the ability to force others think and live as they do. This is where the danger lies. It is repeated throughout history. So, I understand what you are saying about thinking of buying blue differently, were they to gain an unfair advantage, but the very human tendency towards this type of behavior is the same, at it's seed, in all facets of our existence.

military as the entire government. I think that's a different country you're talking about. Yes, we all must suffer the shame of what's been done in our names, just as the Germans had to suffer and the Romans before them. But, I did not do this war. I didn't support it and I didn't vote for it. The people who did vote for this war need to step up and ask forgiveness and stop trying to justify their actions. They failed us. The failed the world.

Bill Clinton, himself, has made many mistakes, failing to act in Rwanda being the biggest. He admitted his errors and we were able to move on. I don't understand why it's so hard for his wife to do the same. How hard is it to say, "You know, we were wrong to make war on Iraq. I'm sorry I voted for the use of force. I was wrong to trust the judgement of this president. I believed what he and his administration were telling me. Many things they have said have proven to be false. The problem now is, we have broken Iraq and we must do everything we can to fix it. Forgive me." How hard is that? How hard is that?

I was a big Hillary fan, but I must admit, I'm feeling a little shaky about her now. Why won't she say it? I don't get it. Is it Murdoch's money? I understand "playing the middle," but you know what? I'm the middle, (ok, slightly left of middle), and she's losing me.
