What are the terrorists' demands? Perhaps some common ground could be reached.

Obviously we don't want to negotiate with terrorists, but making some meaningless concessions could get everyone back under the tent.

It's easy to have that mentality, until you get to know someone there and realize they aren't ALL Jihad-crazy terror mongers. Some of them are just trying to raise a family and they get caught up in this bullshiat that they don't want any more than we do. The real tragedies of war are the unwilling participants.

I've thought for a long time about the problems in the middle east and I think I've come up with a solution.

1. We dig an enormous trench on the shared border of Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran.
2. Start bulldozing from Saudi Arabia/Syria and also all the 'Stans on the eastern side until you meet at the trench.
3. Fill trench with bulldozed debris.
4. Pour 30 feet of concrete on top.
5. Enjoy peace.

Seriously? You can't muster one iota of compassion for the fact that this could have been anyone? A mom buying bread for her kid. A grandpa on a stroll trying to keep arthritis from locking him up completely? Living in a Muslim country does not make someone a whack job. The fact that you can't find a fark to give says a lot more about you than it does about anything else.

I think it says a lot more about being exhausted after being there for almost 9 years and coming to the realizatin that nothing we (the US) does will stop this. I can give a fark in the "that a damned shame" sense, but I can't give a fark in the "something should be done about this" sense.

I don't think there's anything that can be done, short of just wiping them off the planet. I don't think there is anything we should be doing. But to just not care, to basically suggest that every person over there is completely worthless and deserves to die is just...sad.

I think that's a better way of putting it. Sadly, I doubt there is anything we can do either, but I still feel compassion for the people who get mixed up in it. Not the ones who WANT to fight each other, let them kill each other off for all I care, but the innocent people who get mixed up in it all.

I know someone in Iraq, and no not an American soldier, an Iraqi national who lives in Basra. He has a wife and children, he works a regular job, he loathes Al Qaeda and wishes the madness would just STOP so he can raise his family in peace and have a comfortable living. Food on the table, a few luxuries like television and internet, that's all he wants. And he is not alone, there are plenty of people like him there and they're getting killed. It sucks.

No offense, but I think equating "I could not find a fark to give" with "every person over there is completely worthless and deserves to die" is attributing malice where none exists.

I'll bet some of them weren't innocent. You can't kill 100,00 random people and not get someone who is guilty of something. It's almost impossible statistically.

I suppose many people consider 'caring' about something as having something to do with the ability and desire to influence it some positive way. I'm sure the innocent iraqi's appreciate your caring about them while throwing your hands up in the air and saying that you don't think there is anything we can do or that we should even try to do about their predicament.

Please understand, I am not trying to be combative, just trying to explain the justification for the "I don't care" sentiment.
