Meat: Your Maker: Images from "The Good Guys" -- WARNING: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC
You've probably heard about this web site by now -- NowThatsFuckedUp.com -- as it's been in the news because U.S. soldiers in Iraq have been posting horrific war photographs to the site, in exchange for access to pornography.
(Onward Christian Soldiers . . .)
Well, have a look.
This is why sane people hate this fucking pro-military hero-worship bullshit -- praising the killers with unconditional love, as though they can do no wrong and are only "Armies Of Compassion," seeking only to do good works like Jesus and to help children.
And to even criticize them is to be unpatriotic -- even a traitor.
As far as I'm concerned, anyone who supports this war is morally obligated to look at these photos (submitted by U.S./U.K. soldiers) and to read the comments.
"Dehumanization" doesn't do it justice. "Inhuman" doesn't cover it. "Evil" -- maybe.
I'm sorry to say this, but here it is: I do not support the troops.
There. I said it.
Call me a traitor if you like -- I really don't care at this point. Really.
Spend an hour or so on this site (the soldiers' photos, please, not the porn). Read the comments. Then have at me.
I do not support this.
Some of the comments:
That is definitely that guy's brain laying next to his head.
and why not? he wasn't using it any way
fuck these raghead bastards, many thanks to the USA soldiers who are over there kicking ass and wasting these towelheads!
F*%k'um where they eat !!

. . . Fuck them way to go Marines let the 72 virgins work with a guy with no face.
dirty job but someone got to do it! Go Army!
die fuckers... sand niggers

MIGHT BE SICK BUT THATS THE WAY IT IS, WE WILL CATCH THEM ALL SOONER OR LATER AND BAG THEM UP NICE AND NEAT
OOOOORAAAAH! GO MARINES GO ARMY!
. . . . . . . .
Having said that, I'm going to weaken my words with a disclaimer: I know not every soldier is like this, and I know that they are brainwashed and trained to hate and kill, and this is the inherent nature of their situation and a predictable consequence of military occupation of a foreign country . . .
But that's not enough for me. And "I was just following orders" is not enough for me.
If there is a Hell, Satan's working overtime to build the 10th floor. And every person who takes delight in murder and mutilation, dismemberment and spattered blood, and charred corpses . . .
"If there is a Hell, I'll see you there."
