The party of the troops?
Shorter Papa Junker: Pardon me while I imply that Canadian soldiers are arbitrarily "gunning people down" because the Taliban totally did it first.
Maybe it’s just me, but none of the Armed Forces personnel I know has ever "gunned" anyone down -- they fired when threatened or were fired upon.
This is what is commonly known as the "Rules of Engagement", you mouthbreathing, war-porn-humping, chairborne fuckwit.
And furthermore ... I'm not saying that there have never been incidents where civilians and/or innocent bystanders were fired upon for no good reason. There have, in fact, been far too many in recent years.
What I am saying is that it's pretty fucking precious for Papa Junk to put forward the suggestion that it occurs on a regular basis and, more importantly, that the title and substance of his post appears to encourage it.
That kind of claim is a complete fucking insult to any respectable soldier.
