    This is the list of things that people in USA occupied countries aren't allowed to do:

    1 - Hang around in streets.
    2 - Live in semi built buildings in war zones. We all know nobody does that, don't we?
    3 - Get married and have a party to celebrate it
    4 - Celebrating the birth of new children
    5 - Pick up wounded people
    6 - Express their ideas about the oppressive nature of the occupation
    7 - Take pictures that show the killing of civilians

    and now:

    8 - Plow irregular fields at dusk in a region that has a very hot climate:

    Let the apologetics begin!

    "Do you see them with the weapons in their hands?"
    "Yes!"

    A blatant lie. But everything goes to those trigger happy criminals.

    why is this strangely hard to believe? (just like most of your posts)

    1- They should be doing something productive
    2- Obviously, there are housing code violations in every such house
    3- Freedom for everyone to marry or no one marries; when those countries allow gay marriage, then we'll talk
    4- What's to celebrate, another little carbon emitting Earth-wrecker?
    5- The wounded probably don't have health insurance; who's going to pay that bill that you send for picking them up? When they have universal coverage, we'll talk
    6- That's because the occupation is not oppressive. Duh!
    7- Without photography licenses, I'll bet

    8- Worker protection rule; it's uncomfortable to plow at dusk when it's hot; and you might hurt yourself. Blame the unions


    See... they all make sense.

    PS: Where do I get me one of those Apaches? Those are cool.

    You do realize that these "jokes" refer to people that were were brutally killed, don't you?

    You're using their tragic deaths as the basis for politically motivated hyperbole (you don't really mean those things are against the law, do you?). I'm satirizing your hyperbole. I don't see either as being morally superior to the other.

    I'm using their deaths as an hyperbole to make a point, which I don't consider to be a political point. But even if I were to make a political point I don't think those jokes would be in good taste.

    And at least one of those things really was against the law at the time it happened (of course the civilians didn't know it was against the law)

    Ps: I have to grudgingly admit that I laughed at number 7.
