The stuff that was going on in the first gulf war has little or nothing to what just happened to these 2 young men. So I ask you Brill - If this were your son that had just been tortured and the mutilated by these animals would you have a different opinion of the marines. No one likes war. I have been in every scrap from Vietnam up to and including Somalia. I'll tell you what these animals have bastardized islam to suit their own needs, Torture went on before and still is and will happen again. I don't like war. Crazy people likeit. I have seen what these animals do to a human and like rabbit said they don't care whether you are a barganing chip or not. They want ot make a point that they can and will kill or torture to get it across. Personally 25 or 30 daisy cutters on the whole friggin mess will break their backs real fast. If that doesn't do it then start at one end of the country and go house to house and take the weapons. Give these animals one chance to lay the weapon down or they die on the spot. Then once that operation is going on the real bad guys will run out of hiding like rats and you take them down. What's so complicated as that. As for the Marines boohoo ing I rather doubt it.

If you believe the propaganda and bureaucratic manure then yes. This is after all the next logical step in this current administrations carte blanche approach to global domination. To those that would argue this I need only point to Saudi Arabia (a well known terrorist haven) and question why no action has been taken against that nation.

Its sad news BUT if i lived in Iraq and had some "gun ho" army invaded my country for no other reason then lies, i would also be on the street DEFENDING MY COUNTRY AT ALL COSTS. Anyone who disagrees is a liar and hypocrite.
ONCE AGAIN PULL YOUR HEADS OUT OF THE *SNIP* SAND

you target mosques, schools, etc. Its justifiable that they are considered as legit targets because they are part of the equation to win a war.

Are you describing the meaning of Bush's war on terror, Isreals botched air strikes or the behavior of US troops in Iraq ?

We get to see these videos and pictures, but they are edited along the way too. So until you are really there, you are getting views of really what happened. I would rather have an insurgents or a US soldiers or an Iraqi civilians view then any of ours posting here, as it is first hand and as unfiltered as can be. Not perfect, but not edited by news corporations, governments, military spokes people, and terrorist organizations.
