Terrible Tragedy

Human beings have such capacity to be so good and so bad. Here we see pure evil.

CoF My ex-girl is Colombian, I have many friends and aquaintances from South and Central America I've heeard of all the attrocities that take place
I know about the Argentinian death flights...but I don't compare such things to military actions in Times of War---there is indeed a time to kill but nevertheless this is just very sad case---I'm sorry I wasn't accepted into psychopath school never even put in my application in fact...

Death flights - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

reminds me of the cavalry and indians

it's duty when you do it and you feel remorse afterwards (sometimes long afterwards)

carry on

Loma I don't think it was a legal action these matters are prosecuted as crimes against humanity...even in South America

Oddly enough, many of the attrocities against the American Indians were at the hands of the Buffulo Soldiers [Black Calvary]---hardly a shining moment in Black history.. but Blacks are always the victims you know...

Will we ever know given the country that instigated it?
Do you also think the US instigates all the gun massacres that happen in the USA?

The motive is greed! I remember that some moons ago on some continent MI24 gunships were painted white. When these thingies took off people on the ground believed the UN came to their rescue only to have found out to be riveted into the ground because these choppers came in with guns blazing.

It's a nice world we live in, isn't it?

Just as an aside I'd like to mention that I DO NOT have rose tinted glasses
I'm fully awrare that pilots or anyone else can be greedy and evil and anyone is capable of evil things...

As for pilots remember that Fed-EX flight that nearly ended in catastrophe

I was just expressing sadness ---If one is weak for feeling sadness then I am weak so be it... oh well what can I do about it?!!!

alouette That is another sad story...

Sounds like the ideal opportunity to send in a small elite force (for training purposes understand) and help the perpetrators cross over.

Now....back to topic. The motive for such a massacre. Will we ever know given the country that instigated it? I have doubts. But there's a sinister story, me thinks.
I wouldn't be so sure that any country instigated this attack, it's more likely to be a commercial organization behind it. It is a depressingly common occurrence in the more remote parts of South America, especially where greed is involved.

I think CoF's post could have been worded better. I don't think she is saying that an actual country instigated the attack, I think she means "the country in which the attack was instigated".

In other words, do you really think we'll ever hear the true story behind the attack, including the motive and who was actually behind it, given the country in which it happened?

I think history is littered with examples of where greed came first at the expense of humanity, some even knowing that it will cause problems for people.

Doesn't always have to come in the form of guns it can be lax controls .....Bhopal, Chernobyl, PG&E in California of Erin Brok fame, Distillers of Thalidomide fame and countless others.

Lots of countries felt ok to practice various experiments on people locked up be they mentally ill or other and these done by people who supposedly practised Hippocratic Oath.

Removal of people because they got in the way happened in the example of the people of Diego Garcia who were removed and dumped in the slums of Mauritius.

One thing for sure is that looking for a list of mans greed V his humanity doesn't require lots of looking as its all around.

What never ceases to amaze me is the "shock" people have when confronted with yet more proof showing the capabilities of mankind's "Inhumanity" to man.

No "shock" here just a general sadness that envelopes me when I contemplate the world in general...There is as much good as evil in this world, not so bleak an outlook but still the sadness is a very sad sadness--- I know everything!!!

Thread drift,

people on the ground believed the UN came to their rescue
The ground is full of millions of dead people who thought the same...

PS don't blame the "UN" per se, its yours and mine Govmints that tie the "UN'"s hands behind its back when "sending them in"

Sending them in, half funded, half supported, restricted ROE's etc etc, all so they can say they did summat and have something to hide behind when it goes t*ts up.

Then the "UN" gets a shoeing when it invariably does goes t*ts up.

Politicians... better if God took em.

alemaobaiano....my mother is from Brazil, so I am fully aware of the atrocities that rape the Amazon from countries surrounding this region. And Hellsbrink knows me well enough that he captured the meaning of my post. There is someone, some country behind it and we will likely never know the whole truth. If the world finds out, I hope we nail them to the proverbial cross.

The thing that sickens me is that there are some Amazonian tribes that still exist without ever having had contact with the outer world. I shudder to think at the circumstances that involved this massacre, but know in my gut it was for the resources the land offered and nothing else. I can't imagine religious or political gains for this.

I could be wrong and hope the truth surfaces.

@ mini; I did not blame the UN. All I stated was that these gunships were painted white and used the color as a decoy to get people out of the bushes, and kill them. But since you brought it up; the UN is useless!

@ Pugilistic Animus; I don't want to know how much more of these stories are out there. But I have seen enough!

I even understand that the United States was herself...involved in many attrocities...and I love My Country...I loved President Bush for keeping me laughing and keeping my spirits...


Therefore I am not Naive.!!!..the whole God-Damned world has embarked upon the madness!


But God Sees Every Secret Thing, Every Secret Thing Under The Sun; Whether Or Not Embarked Upon For The Purposes Of Good Or Evil.


And Hence He Alone Shall Punish The Sinner!!!
