"Social networks have become important tools used by the US military for reaching out to potential new recruits."
Grooming kids on the net for sex is utterly illegal. Grooming kids on the net to kill people is officially approved.
US marines have been blocked from accessing Web 2.0 sites on the Corps' own network, pending a review of security. The Corps is reported to have forbidden access to sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace while it draws up a waiver system for permitting access during the course of work. The ban is expected to last a year …
That's a terrible simplification which completely fails to take into account the detail surrounding these issues.
Israel's in the Middle East you know and I'm not sure that killing people there is on the officially approved list, although I believe that you might get a blind eye turned in certain bits of it.........
It's misleading to compare 'Grooming kids on the net to kill themselves and western citizens' (leave aside that many suicide bombs explode 'out there', killing the middle-east citizens) with 'Grooming kids on the net to kill middle-east citizens'.
Let's not get into the legality or moral justification of being there, but if western armies were fighting middle eastern (or Russian, German, French insert preferred opponent here) armies then that would be a fair comparison.
A better comparison is grooming suicide bombers to blow up (for the sake of argument western) people with grooming KKK/white supremacists to go over there and do the same thing. Who thinks that's reasonable?
