"Man has no right to kill his brother. It is no excuse that he does so in uniform: he only adds the infamy of servitude to the crime of murder" - Percy Bysshe Shelley

Apparently Mr. Shelley defines murder as one human killing another without regard to the circumstances. Most societies consider mitigating circumstances when it comes to killing, such as accidents, self defence ect.

When it comes to people in uniform one side is generally trying to destroy the other so most killing would be considered self defense.

It amazes me that people, like Shelley, make these little saying thinking they're creating a speck of light in a universe of darkness.

So Al you think Shelly couldn't distinguish between murder and accidents? But Shelly was writing about military exploitation and abuse of those in uniform. So lets review your self defense claim.

Those little people in black pajamas from the jungle of a little bankrupt country in Southeast Asia were coming to get us.
The people of Afghanistan were coming to get us as were the people of Iraq then Libya and Syria and Somalia and Yemen, the list goes on and on as well as far back in our national history; they all coming to get us and we ain't doing 'nutten. A person in uniform can't "just say no".

This looks like a national epidemic of paranoid schizophrenia brought on by the masters of propaganda by those who stand to gain the most like the billions and billions of dollars in profits for the suppliers of military hardware and troop support at the expense of the overall economy, education and etc.

This one of the main reasons that many of the founding fathers opposed a standing army.
