By your "LOGIC" if I go to a restaurant and get a burnt steak then I shouldn't be allowed to criticize the cook, if I've never been a cook before. Likewise I guess you would say the parents of the soldiers killed in A'stan today , allegedly by "friendly US trained A;stan security personnel that were alienated by the Koran burning US soldiers: ' that unless they were veterans that they had no right to criticize those involved
Carried to its "logical" conclusion, unless your real name is Bush, Carter, or Clinton then you should'nt be on POTUS criticizing the POTUS, since you have never been the POTUS.
Seems "LOGICAL" to me3. NOT!!!
So its your position that in the examples of the restaurant and the parents of the dead soldiers that it would be morally wrong to question the actors unless the diner had been a cook and the parents had been soldiers?
If a LEO did something stupid and killed an innocent loved one of yours; would you feel compelled by your "morality" to not question the LEO's irrational stupid behavior; unless you have a LEO background? REALLY??
I differ from you in that I see no moral or legal problem with questioning either the cook, the soldiers, or thje LEO" regardless of whether or not I had ever had that job. Furthermore in the case of the soldier or the LEO, or any profession that is granted the authority to use deadly force; I almost feel that we have a duty to criticize when they act incorrectly, resulting in the killing or maiming of innocent people. Maybe thats just me.
Now if you feel I need a civics lesson then I'm all ears Professor. When do classes start?
Before we start the classes please send me a syllabus. Highlight the part that explains how a Civics class would be the academic venue to resolve the interplay between legality, morality & ethics Also will this class explain that none of us can morally be on POTUS criticizing the POTUS' unless like you they are one of our 4 surviving past POTUS's?
To those of us who are veterans, being one is special, though I advocate no special treatment for those who served they did give. In turn, many who did not go also served in some manner.
It is certain that the number of those who reason well in difficult matters is much smaller then the number of those who reason badly ........ reasoning is like running & unlike carrying, hence one Arab steed will outrun a hundred jackasses.
