[ If you're going to say you would 'spill every drop of middle eastern blood' then you gotta admit you would be killing perfectly innocent people. You do realize there are middle-eastern pregnant people, middle eastern children and middle eastern infants right? But I mean, those don't matter since they aren't AMERICAN children, infants, and fetuses to you I guess. Also the USA is the one exporting violence globally, y'all invade more countries than any other country on the planet. ]
Bill-11b: : I said that isn’t what I wanted, please learn to read.
2) I said that if it’s that or defeat, I choose that.
3) They’re not as important as American and western lives to me, no.
Do you think American soldiers saw Japanese or German civilians as just as important as American civilians?
We killed an ass load of German and Japanese civilians in the process of winning WW2, and it was precisely because we value ourselves over our enemy, just as they value themselves over us.
low-key-lyesmith: Why people don’t see that as a conflict, as it is. It’s not a matter of killing innocent’. Our enemy is perfectly fine with killing innocent. Hell none of the targets in Europe were military personnel/structures. Sure we are the bigger person, and yes we should try to defend the innocent, but the life of the people I love to me is way more valuable to the life of people there. It’s brutal but it;s true. If for example bombing the shit out of entire city means my family and friends can go in the underground or on a plane without the fear of being blown, well bomb the shit out of it.
bill-11b:This is exactly my point, but they’re using willful ignorance to attempt to subvert what I’m saying.
We should try not to kill anyone we don’t have to, but if we’re forced into a corner, if the so called peaceful moderates refuse to fight off their own fundamentalists, and OUR safety is predicated on absolute and total destruction of anyone who isn’t us, then we should fucking do it.
