Frustration: Why Sssooo Shhhrilll? Collateral Damage in Iraq.

WikiLeaks posted a video effectively claiming that US soldiers purposefully killed civilians.  Here is the video: www.collateralmurder.com.  And even the most rational people seem to completely lose their ability to think.  Now, I hate war.  I hate civilians dying.  I think it’s a tragedy.  But that doesn’t mean that we should lose our ability to think analytically when looking at various events.

I think this is a fairly decent response to the video: http://seminal.firedoglake.com/diary/39215.

This is why I think there is a need for a solid online debating system that would allow good individual participation without leading to circular discussions…

For some really depressing ignorance, check out Digg: http://digg.com/world_news/Classified_US_military_video_depicting_slaying_of_Iraqis

I don’t understand how people can be so focused on their position that instead of reasonable dialog , they go on emotional diatribes choosing to vilify rather than think.  Depressing.  My only hope is that those vocal are a minority when compared to those thinking.
