Originally posted by skippytjc No regard was made for their wishes or feelings about being cremated. That’s the point.

sanitary reasons.?

No they wont. they were not rotting. they were already dry.


Those Taliban were dead and rotting and were burned for sanitary reasons. It’s an issue because Muslims don’t want their dead burned. But those WESTERN contractors were burned during, or shortly after their deaths as an attack on them.

Iraqis killed the contractors while Afgans where burned.

Dont put muslims all in one group
