I wouldn't say outraged at a group of people in particular. The outrage is directed at the violence happening in the world.honestrosewater said:At who or what are you outraged? Is there a bit of the "us and them" mentality in your statement?
I should have been more clear earlier, what I meant is that I am outraged American soldiers abuse Iraqis, when arabs behead American civilians, when Canadian soldiers shoot Somalians, when Arabs kill Arabs, and when some punk kills and old lady for her purse, etc.
I don't like the "us" and "them" mentality, because that just makes it easier to kill "them". They're humans, and we're humans. We just look a little different. There's no difference to me between a dead Iraqi, American, Canadian, etc.
I have no authority to comment on what Americans think, as I am not. But I am amazed at the ability of some Americans to brush aside stories of abuse, just as I am amazed that some muslim zealots think the brutal beheading of a civilian can be justified.simon666 said:That is my signature line on another forum. I like it, it seems a number of Americans think the Iraqis are a lot happier when killed or tortured by a democracy than by a dictator.
