I just read an excellent thread with pointers to video of the 6 Marines killed in Iraq.

Within minutes the thread disappeared from GD.

Bad Dogs!

How are we supposed to make good decisions without correct information, painful or not?

I work in an emergency room and routinely have to give bad news to family and friends. The transition is much easier if all are informed throughout the process, and involved in the decision making. Avoiding the pain makes the inevitable that much more painful, then with no say in the process. Pain must be dealt with ASAP. Denial is seldom helpful.

We must know our enemy. Restricting information like this is damaging.

Bad Dogs!, ARFCOM staff, Bad Dogs!

Here is the link to the video: Fire me.

Semper Fi.

If this thread disappears I will unsubscribe from ARFCOM, and no one will miss me, but I will miss ARFCOM.

I apologize for not being more charitable right now, I am sad and angry.

God Bless our soldiers.

Goodbye, I'm thinking I'm 86'd.

Rick

Hell, the TITLE said, "Please trash me!" or words to that effect. Pretty clear...

He wants us to see it but he wants us to fear it. Seeing it and growing support for our troops is not what they want. They want fear and panic.

I appreciate your response. Thank You.

I still feel the situation response to original thread was not smooth.

The job of a moderator is not a "nice' one. Thank you for doing the job.

I am still sad and angry. I am also happy I am not 86'd.

Rick

It's the author's perogative to have his thread locked and / or trashed. Why should we post an explanation everytime we lock something?

(ETA: Outside of the system message)

Because your a f'n <i>Moderator</i>, not a f'n thunderbolt. Communicate.
