About that Wizzle Incident

Say "thank you", I won't include a picture.

A few thoughts on the regrettable urination in Afghanistan:

If George Bush were president this would be on every front page and would dominate the news from now until the election.

Desecration is disgusting, but it is nothing when compared to the loss of life. Those guys presumably needed killing. They didn't need desecration, but they've lost every sunrise, every meal, every laugh and every pleasure that would have come to them. Desecration is insignificant compared to that.

Islamic extremists don't much care about desecration, or the Geneva convention, when the shoe is on the other foot.

While I think it's wrong, I can understand what motivated it.

I'm having trouble getting worked up over it. Send out a "don't do that" memo and move on.
