Yeah I heard about that this morning on the way to work. That really does suck. :thumbsdn:
It's interesting how the last few incidents have been directed at Iraqis themselves as opposed to Americans.

the worst part is mostly women, children, & the elderly suffered/died.
it baffles me how unacceptable it is to murder a woman, child, or an elderly person... unless, it's in the name of war and martyrdom. absolute bullshit, assholes.

Anyone who think's that this isn't sexist is a sexist.

People are afraid, the terrorists win. Lots of people die, the terrorists win. US looses lots of money, the terrorists win. US leaves Iraq, the terrorists win. Everything goes smoothly, the terrorists fight another day.
CATCH 22

That's retarded. Who gives a shit if it's sexist? What's your point? Do you feel as if there's something wrong with thinking that it sucks that women, children, and elderly were killed?
Thanks for wasting 23k of internet space.

More men die each year than women. Largely because men between 15-25 get killed all the time doing dumbass shit.

I try to look at the world in a progressive viewpoint. Think about it for a second. Why does it matter more when a woman is killed than when a man is killed? This nation has become completely desensitized to the fact the favoring women is just as sexist as favoring men.
As for killing a woman versus killing a man, faced with the decision I'd probobly down a few grains of nicotine and avoid the issue outright. If that is chickenshit, so be it.

That is not the point. ReiShin quoted GGW saying this:

To which I asked him if would find it easier (mentally, physically maybe) to kill a man over a woman.

This is hypothetical situation where you cannot avoid killing someone. The point is that you will never feel comfortable killing a woman over a man (as comfortable as one can feel killing someone) because for centuries, millenia, it has been ingrained in us that men defend and do the fighting and women are to manage the house. Though this last one has changed somewhat, there is still that tinge in ever human being about killing women (the weak) and children (the defenseless). Keep in mind that this does not reflect my personal ideals about women in society. Come to think of it, I dont even remember why I am doing this.....?

Bullshit. You're doing nothing more than playing devil's advocate. Take your 'progressive' bloviating and post something useful to the thread.

No kidding, even I, your behind the scenes master, am guilty of going way off course, possibly even starting the whole thing, and I am sorry. This thread is about the horrible events that took place in Iraq one Wednesday, August 31 2005. May Allah have mercy on their martyred souls.

They didn't exactly get murdered..

Have you ever been into a large croud? Like a music show or something.. You probably did. If a bunch of people suddently pushes the croud on one side, it will cause a domino-like effect, people will be squeezed etc. In a panic croud, the smaller and weaker will get squeezed or stomped to death....

A couple hundreds of them were squeezed between the bridge fence and the croud, and the fence broke, and they fell to their deaths...

So yeah.. It's horrible, but it's not murder. Unless you say the croud as a whole murdered them, then yes.
