WTF MAN

Just Another Soldier is written by a soldierwhos name is Jason Christopher Hartley from the U.S.A. who was or is in Iraq, and he reports about how he can't shoot the kids in Iraq... kind of angers me. He also put up some pictures of kids that he said "Photos of the week of cute Iraqi kids who I want to shoot"

He complains "You Can’t Shoot Kids" in the title of his post...

Jason also writes: Something I can not reiterate often enough is how monumentally misbehaved Iraqi street kids are. But some of them are just so darn cute, you can’t help but want to squeeze their little faces– until they suffocate.

Some of the comments are also intresting to read, as they show how stupid some people sound like.
