When a non combatant of another race/faith  is killed by Westerners it is called a mistake or a tragic accident by the West.It is called an atrocity by Jihadis.
When a non combatant of another race/faith is killed by Jihadis is is called "Righteous" by Jihadis, senseless murder by the West.

Both sides seek to justify their own crimes against huimanity by hiding behind double standards, half truths and fallacies. Both sides lack the humanity to say what they are truly trying to achieve.

A short digression

Monotheistic religions all proclaim themselves to be about peace. With heaven as the ultimate reward for a righteous life. How is it then that those who speak so strongly of faith are also those who seem to be the most violent towards others?

Has there been a war started by atheists?

Fear is the driving force behind the motivation of the violent religious. Fear of punishment, fear of divine retribution, fear of damnation in the eyes of an uncaring God. As ironically pointed out by a puppet in the Empire Strikes Back. Fear leads to hate, hate leads to anger, anger leads to the Dark side.

And yet our wisest of the wise, our mullahs, abbots, popes and imams fail to lead us in such a way that peace is obtainable, that hatred, fear and violence is avoidable.

The West long ago realised that the violence of men cannot be eradicated so instead rules were divised to make the violence sanitary, armies were professional, not conscripted. Weapons were made illegal because they were designed to inflict pain, fear..not simply incapactate or kill. The West became unstoppable.

Until the oppressed nations decided not to fight by the rules anymore, not to stand in a line and be shot down by toy soldiers. The rules of war became obsolete in the face of the new warfare, terrorism, guerilla combat.

The hardened soldiers of western armies were no longer targetted, but the civilians, feeling safe in their homes, the nurese tending the wounded of both sides, the teachers who sought to bring choice to the children on both sides of conflict. The kidnappings in the name of faith but asking for material wealth, the beheadings of passers by, of tourists showed the west that their enemy would not be brought to the open field of battle but would cower in the shadows and strike when backs were turned, when guards were down.

So, as is the case with any animal that seeks to survive, including ideological beasts, the West evolved. It would no longer put soldiers in harms way, no longer use human lives to protect human lives. It would use robots, drones, proxy soldiers to fight against the enemy that refused to identify itself, that refused to play by the rules.

And what cry went out from the enemy then? Why you no play by rules? Why you shoot our homes? Why you kill innocents who do nothing to you?

Still unable to see the fact that when you don't play by the rules, the rules will change and evolve and that in war, in violence and desecration of humanity, there are no fairnesses, only the eventual annhilation of part of the greater whole.

This is the short sighted ness of wise old men, the folly of the brave, the curse of the righteous, for they bring the world to its doom.

Terrorism

The fact is that the great acts of terrorism like 9/11,7/7,Mumbai 26/11,Madrid 3/11 and Bali were false flag black ops conducted by the Zionist led New World Order that rules globally and has it's capital (since 1655) in the financial district of London.These false flag ops have been used by the NWO to increase Military spending and the adoption of horrible Orwellian measures like naked scanners and drones.Ironically huge numbers of drones are to be deployed in one of the main strongholds of the NWO,Amerika.This was something even George Orwell didn't envisage.
9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

Monotheistic religions

Both major monotheistic religions are offshoots of Judaism.It may be that having two associated antagonistic religions that forbade usury across most of the world was part of the plan for long term domination of the world by the chosen people.In the period after the Spanish Inquisition and the 1492 expulsion the Is lamic world took in most of the Jewish refugees.It appears that after the crypto Jewish financed take over of Amerika that Is lam has served it's required function and is no longer required except as an excuse for enriching the Zionist merchants of death.

A bitter analysis Petera but one which disturbs me only because it could contain a grain of truth.

I shudder to think that humanity as a species is capable of such long term malevolence but cannot discount it.

Thankyou for your input.

In most cases, religion has very little to do with the causes of war.  Its used to get support of the masses.

At the core, it's a struggle for power.  And atheists have not shown to be more civil, look at the history of the soviet union.

I think religion is used, or rather misused to stir up passions that it often masks the root issues.

The US is not in afghanistan because of religion.  We went there to take away a safe haven for international terrorism and their camps.  The mistake was thinking we could successfully nation-build.  The US was criticized harshly following the soviet-afghan war for not providing stability.  So this time....we're not going to make that mistake....only its a fools game.  

There is too much struggle for power going on to try and stabilize that as a foreign, occupying power.   The government in Kabul doesn't want the US to leave.  They know they can't maintain control or power.  Its not that they like the americans, but they'll use us if that means they can attain the power.

We're not talking about a country that is united by any means.  It would actually be nice if they could get rid of both NATO and the Taliban.

And rules?  What happened to 'All is fair in love and war'?  lol

But seriously, some of the best military strategies have not been so civilized.  Think of the russian strategy against napoleon.  They set fire not only to moscow, but also small villages so there would be nothing for napoleon's army to plunder.  Without supplies...in the middle of a russian winter....well, we all know the story.  The russians have a history of not really caring how many of their own they sacrifice.  That is what has always made them so dangerous.

If something like this were to be done today, what would people think of it?

The whole 'surge' strategy in iraq, was also not playing by normal rules.  The core of the strategy was just paying people off so they stop shooting at us long enough for us to get out of there.

It worked in iraq, but not in afghanistan when the same thing was tried.  Meanwhile you have other groups paying children to plant landmines.  Everyone is getting exploited....people need to eat.

I don't think its all black and white.

Some of what you say about Russia would hold true for the swiss as well - on individual level rather than central command.
You just don't invade either country. (And you just don't invade the US either.)

Good thread, but you are trying too hard with the title though.
It leads to confusion.

Thanks Kbay, I'm afraid I didn't really think it out, just started writing.
