Agreed. Iraq is no comparision to the American Civil War. Different factors involved all the way. And atrocities happen in every war. It's part of war and sadly, probably always will be.

And, the fighting going on over there has been going on for HUNDREDS of years.

I'm usually not one for extreme measures, but senseless killings like that hits that "Kill 'em all" nerve in me. It makes me wish we'd nuke the whole area once and for all. Course, I know that would be insane and solve nothing....but....still..... :-/

What's so different? You don't think there an incredible number of atrocities committed by the North and South against one another that weren't on the battlefield?

True except this had nothing to do with troops whatsoever. It was commoners killing a child for love. Could there be anything more sinful that squashing love? I know tons of people like to point the finger inward when it comes to America, but I have no problem saying we're better than that.

I am getting so sick of stuff like this. Or when you read about the "soccer" fields in Afghanistan and elsewhere where people are executed... its so stupid. Yea, other religions have had their own ridiculous things like the Crusades etc. But that was hundreds of years ago. And islam is not THAT much younger than Christianity to the degree that these types of things should still be in flux. This kind of intolerance should really have either been solved, or at least come to the point where interfaith love is frowned upon etc., but not worthy of killing.
