not really, just the puppy is getting tossed off a cliff by the soldier, so ...well i guess the soldier doesn't deserve any sympathy...

I don't think that was the Roman's philosophy, or the Greeks, French, Muslims or English.

All of these groups conquered most of the earth by the way. This is just an American philosophy and it doesn't work well in war. We're not there to make friends and win hearts and minds... we're there to kill the enemy.

Conventional war, war on terror?

War is war, it has been fought for thousands of years the same way.

Dominate your opponant and inflict as much damage and pain as possible until they are unwilling to fight any longer. We live, they die= We win.

Recent history has brought this hearts and minds crap into a place it clearly does not belong.

Make friends after you have won.

Patton said it best

"I want you to remember, that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country... he won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country"

I care. To be so calous about life is not a good thing. To kill for the sake of killing is wrong.

Shoot this animal, and its "GAME", and a fun weekend trip.

He didnt "abuse" them, he hit one of them.

He was also one of the best Generals America has ever had.

Quote:
While visiting hospitals and commending wounded soldiers, he slapped and verbally abused Pvts. Paul G. Bennet and Charles H. Kuhl, who he thought were exhibiting cowardly behavior. The soldiers were suffering from various forms of battle fatigue or shell-shock, and had no visible wounds (though one was subsequently found to have dysentery). Because of this action, Patton was kept out of public view for some time and secretly ordered to apologize to the soldiers. Patton also was relieved of command of the Seventh Army prior to its operations in Italy
what a hero.

I was waiting for this argument.

Kill a domesticated animal, or kill part of the food chain. It's all the same right?

YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.

Is it wrong to laugh at this one thats titled "US solder saves puppy"?

In all honesty, yes it sucks they killed the puppy - should they have tapped it? No. Does it suck that it happened? yes.

However, as CC said, whats the difference between a puppy and a fawn?? Or a racoon?? Or a mouse for that matter??? they're all life, yet no one cares here in this country.

I don't know, I'm torn as it is fucked up to 'hear' the dog yelping (if it really was yelping...that could have easily been added in with some A/V program), but I've seen stuff that was way worse than that and it hasn't caused nearly as much fuss....

Just because he slapped some little whinny coward, you say he's not a hero?! You have no clue what you're talking about.

Cows are domesticated, and dogs are a very large piece of the food chain in some places in the world.
