Great points anitram and U2 democrat.

Let's hope the ratio of dog rescues (they've done a lot) is 100x greater than mistreatment.

I agree, yet the point is, these soldiers can defend themselves against attack. They can protect their life. This little puppy could not. In the scheme of things, yes, a human life is of far greater t value than that of an animal. That's not the point here. The point is the life of animal, which still has value, was taken for no reason other than some sick peoples' idea of a good time.

I wish a lot more of my fellow American citizens (I have dual citizenship) had that same attitude toward their country commiting torture, to be honest. It's despicable when it's an animal, but not when it's a brown guy.

when they stalked and raped that 14 year old girl (repeatedly)

killed her whole family

and burned her body


I was concern it would escalate

this is truly unAmerican

And the two really aren't comparable. The above is soo much more horrid and tragic. I still love puppies, I've had to bury a couple in my lifetime. But I can't imagine the horror.

Thank you. Yeah guys, if you want to search the latest torture thread about waterboarding you'll clearly see that I'm against it. This thread is about a puppy being killed, so why I would bring up the torture situation?

Yeah, to be honest this thread almost cracks me up, in a morbid kind of way. After everything else in Iraq and at GITMO...oh my god they're throwing puppies off cliffs, they've gone too far this time!

you're the only one who has insinuated that. torture threads emerge and get locked every few weeks, mainly because people get fired up about it. how many of those have you engaged in?
