    Wow, and I thought half the Americans did not care about anything outside the US, and the other half did not vote (so their views are not considered by politicians).

    >>Our government cares about nothing, not even civilian life in countries we find as our aggressors for whatever reason.

    Anybody know the latest estimate for civilian casualties in Afghanistan? I heard 3500+ last night from Red Cross.

    As to Depleted Uranium core rounds (these are heavier and so penetrate better than Savant (sheathed) rounds). It scares me that Bush sees nukes as an option and may haveused them on the Tora Bora caves not able to be bombed conventionally.

    Just remember that casualties are not deaths, they are injuries. If someone trips and falls on some shrapnel, that's a casuality.

    It really is too bad anarchy doesn't work.

    And if a villager gets out of their truck on a lonely mountain road to talk to their friends, and seem to be too tall, a Predator (unmanned RC drone) will launch a missile at them. Reducing them, and the other villagers, to smoking mush. (as has happened)

    They are also casualties.

    where the hell do people get this "communism is perfect in theory" idea? I always hear this "if people were hardworking and not greedy and honest" thing. Guess what? There wouldnt be much need for a government in that case, would there? And the whole idea of "perfect in theory" and impractical in RL is ridiculous. If a system is "perfect in theory" and not in reality then its problem is builds upon incorrect axioms/assumptions, which sounds distinctly imperfect to me!
