lemur Posted February 26, 2011 Share Posted February 26, 2011 (edited) I can't fault your convictions since you seem quite religious, and thats your business. But you see, vermin such as this cannot in any fashion be defined as soldiers. That's why I suggested when we catch them, we snuff them. People who stoop to such a low level of depravity and humanity deserves nothing more than what they give out. People unquestionably deserve exactly what they give out, and some people are religious enough to believe that they are perpetually in line to experience the effects of their own actions as their own victims, but that depends on your personal point of view. I don't know why you would use the status of being a soldier to absolve people of their actions. The Roman soldiers that persecuted Jesus seem to have reveled in the sadism of degrading a spiritual leader. They had no basis for torturing and killing him except his holiness, which they spat on out of irritation at the very thought that someone would raise their high high enough to truly believe in God and truth. All they knew was domination and submission through violence, which is all any pirate knows, no? Someone bullies them into joining their gang and then they learn to bully and steal from others without regard for morality or ethics - or probably their morality/ethics is one of taking care of yourself and your own in a dog-eat-dog world where someone has to be victimized for someone else to prosper. I wouldn't be so sure many of these pirates don't have the exact same mentality as many soldiers of the developed world; only in the developed world the exploitation and violence have been better institutionalized and sterilized to promote a sense of superiority over the 'primitives' of the developing world. In reality, the world consists mostly of savages, both 'modern' and 'primitive.' Decency emerges sporadically amid the depravity.
