I said a minimum of six months. Anyway, what makes you an expert? When somebody talks logically and intelligently everybody understands.
okay so 13,000 civilians have been killed from 2007 to june 2012.so thats 13,000 civilians killed in 5 years
okay in america 11,000 americans are murdered every YEAR.in fact you have just proved that it takes civilains in Afghanistan 5 years just to reach our death toll we have for one year of living in our country.
Yes, well, in your rush to justify the slaughter of innocent civilians you overlooked the fact that Afghanistan has a population of 30,500,000 and America has a population of 315,580,000. So Afghanistan has double the per capita rate of violent deaths of the US. Anyway, 11,000 murders a year is hardly something worth flaunting.
also can you please state the FACTS..how many of those 13,000 afghan civilian deaths were commited by American soldiers and how many of those civilian deaths were commited by the Taliban???
Read the congress report I linked to.
"so much for defending the innocent"....Yea your argument just fell apart seeing as 85% to 95% of civilain deaths were commited by None american forces
Apart from your claim being 100% baseless, it is also of no importance to the discussion as to who did the killing, the facts were portrayed to provide evidence of the incapacity of soldiers (merecenaries in the case of the US) and religious warriors (in the case of the Taliban) to protect the innocent.
AHAHAHHAHA yea its OBVIOUS we went to war for booty and plunder and to steal their riches thats why we are 14 trillion dollars in debt......
You see, this is where it becomes blaringly obvious that you do not understand the wokings of corporatism. The people that own and control the mining and military interests don't give a sh*t about the cost (in money and lives) of the poor citizens of the US. They do not care if the American state is in debt, they care that they are making profits. Nothing else. And they wage their wars by confounding you with this lie about killing people in foreign lands for the sake of American democracy. They did it in Korea (foothold in north Asia), Vietnam (opium again), Phillipines (banana and sugar cane plantations and then, after WWII, a foothold in Pacific SE Asia), Iraq (oil), Central and South America (cocaine), Panama (control of the canal), etc...
now when you can show that America has become rich after the war and has GAINED 14 trillion dollars due to "plunder" then you might have some evidence.
America has not, some (very few) Americans have.
But really we are starting to go completely
so in order to justify your statements regarding soldiers/warriors and Buddhism you have to come up with something a lot more intelligent than repeatedly saying: "(I cant expect you to understand either)"
