N.A.T.O forces involved in operations with Libyan rebels should be held partially responsible for civilian casualties. At the very least they are grossly negligent. Emphasis definitely, added. As for the rebels?
These undisciplined guerrillas, ignorant to the ways of the puppet masters and their tangled web of invisible strings, will be used and discarded, like Grandpa's old fishing line at the start of trout season. So what? What do you care? Is what the sheople begin bleating on about until it ALL sounds the same from there. What do I care?
Well if N.A.T.O cared at all about finishing this conflict quickly with minimal casualties, they would train and better equip the rebels . Or how about our dumb ass leaders utilizing the so called smart bombs in our military arsenal reserved specifically for key military targets.
I say "our" military arsenal, because we paid for it. U.S tax payers. Makes you wonder what they are going to screw up next and how much it will cost us. Seems they break it and we buy it, then buy it again, and again, and...
Yep, it's ridiculous. To top it off, if you walk into the local pub or the dive bar down the street you won't hear the place buzzing with gossip about what's happening in Libya or the rest of Africa. Nope. No mention of Japan and what they are going through and how the U.S can help. Nada.
Topics of conversation are irrelevant to anything but the mundane. People are confined in attitude to their own selfish needs with their ego right at the center. Wit definitely happens. In fact it is often quite amusing. However egocentrism has done little in the way of making the world a better place. But to improve the world we have to make personal sacrifices and improve ourselves, first. Right? So maybe the answer lies in egocentrism after all. Perhaps it is the intention behind it that makes for meaningless bravado instead of real change.
These rebels are unscrupulous pawns and villians, mostly by proxy. But ignorance is no excuse for lack of conscience unless all of the rebels are sociopaths, or co opted fools and completely brainwashed. Maybe Philip Zimbardo was right. See, Lucifer Effect.
As for Geraldo...
Geraldo often plays devils advocate to the infowar. Although I believe he is a good guy that just turns a blind eye at times. To bad idealism so easily averts his narrow gaze from the truth staring him right in the face. I like Geraldo. At least I want to like him. I think of him as a know-it-all that means well. Objectively stated, a bad combination indeed.
Never the less, here is Geraldo, ducking for cover, much like our freedoms, as always he is making sense of the situation with good intentions, but failing to recognize the bigger picture.
