I can't believe the hate-filled, murderous, slanderous crap that's in this thread on both sides, but more from the anti-american camp. How can you
say such stuff, praise the killing of American soldiers and Americans in general, and expect the Americans here and in Iraq to be anything but
If the soldiers were beating the woman, then my praise to the Iraqi soldier that shot them. I'm the last person you'll hear faulting his actions,
if the story pans out and I wouldn't be at all surprised if it did. I also don't think the articles posted by the OP are entirely without
credibility. Sure it's biased, but there seems to be a grain or more of truth. Hopefully we'll find out what really happened and justice will be
However, there are terrible people everywhere. What about the militants in Iraq that kidnap soldiers and even civilians and CUT THEIR HEADS OFF?
That's not just as bad? I think it is. Didn't Iraqis get tortured and killed in horrendous ways, for no good reason, when Saddam was in power? If
it weren't for the American presence, do you really think that the Iraqi people could prevent another perverted, power hungry sect from taking power?
I don't agree with the Iraq war, but I have an immense amount of respect for anyone who will volunteer to go over there and fight a war that's not
in direct defense of America.
For all of those screaming "murderous Americans!", are you telling me that where you come from, there are never people who abuse their power in
grotesque ways? Cops never go overboard? Politician's aren't corrupt? There isn't a single bloody stain in your countries history? and for
those who live in America, why don't you try to improve it? Start a citizen watchdog group, write to your sherif, senator, or mayor. Certainly,
screaming hate filled insults doesn't help a damn thing.
