for those of you who don't recall, a little while ago, a report surfaced that claimed that some US troops brutally raped an Iraqi girl, and then went
on to murder the girl and her family to cover it up:
a short time after that, a new report surfaced saying that two US troops were abducted by an unknown terrorist faction, assumed to be connected to
al-qaida. the troops were later found dead, their bodies mutilated:
well, according to a new video, supposedly put out by a group linked to al qaida, the two incidents are very much related.
apperently, the troops that were abducted and later tortured and murdered were from the same Division as the ones who raped and murdered the girl. the
al qaida group attacked the division, pulling out random soldiers to exact their vengence, as they put it:
i don't know what makes me sadder:
the fact that a girl and her whole family are dead due to those sadistic soldierss, the facts that two random people, who probably had nothing to do
with it ended up "paying" too high a price for actions they didn't commit, or the fact that the people who DID do it are probably gonna get off
with a slap on the wrist or a very light sentence.
you can call me whatever you want, but personally, if those people had actually caught, and did whatever they wanted to those who actually did
commit the crime, i'd have no problem with it.
p.s.: please don't tell me "but none of this would've happened if we weren't even there in the first place!" or anything along those lines. i
know that. the whole world practically knows that by now. but the fact is, as much as i hate this BS "war on 'turr'" it's not going to change the
fact that we are there.
