  •  And how many civilians have the "rebels" killed? (6+ / 0-)

    Why is it that no one pays attention to civilians killed by those other than a military? Dead is dead. These people kill those who do not wish to live under their rule. I'd like to at least error on the side of those who don't wish to be fanatics.

    Sometimes there are no good answers no matter how easy it is to be outraged.

    •  "No one pays (0+ / 0-)

      attention to the civilians killed by rebels?"

      I've seen lots of reports on the brutality of the "Al Qaeda-linked" terrorists, though I'm certain people in France have seen much more.

      In any case, if you think invasions are a good way to quell insurgencies -- and protect the human rights of the people there -- I've got some ocean-front property in Kandahar I'd like to sell you.

        ...about the rebels but you went somewhere else. I simply wanted to remind you that dead is dead. I don't want to see any death.
