US Sniper Squad pressed to raise body count in Iraq


www.nytimes.com

...During a separate hearing here in July, Sgt. Anthony G. Murphy said he and other First Battalion snipers felt "an underlying tone" of disappointment from field commanders seeking higher enemy body counts.


Only a select group of snipers in the battalion were told of the program, but many more were ordered, without explanation, to carry the baiting items on missions, creating rumors that the items were intended to be planted on victims of unjustified killings, soldiers testified.

Well, it looks like the bloodlust conveyed by high ranking officials in Iraq has seemingly backfired. While snipers are supposed to be battle hardended, emotionless killing machines, it looks as though some of them actaully have emotions and cant handle the slaughter of innocent civilians. Lord knows how much of this killing has been done by our lovely indy mercenary forces at Blacksoul USA.

I'm sure that this kind of killing is rampant in Iraq and this instance has only but scratched the surface of the problem at hand.
