It sickens me looking at that picture. I was never for this war in Iraq anyway, so this just pisses me off further.

I wonder what would happen to public opinion if we burned a bunch of them and watched it on TV...
....and then we threw a big ol' bash to celebrate the burning of the Holy Ones. Complete with liquor, and scantily clad women pouring it all over their bodies for the wiley-eyed infidel men to lick. And then ritual sex acts in the street, and speaking in tongues, and the burning of things which smell of sin. All broadcast over hijacked middle eastern television and satellite transmissions, so they could see the evil that we really are - sick, perverted, monstrous, murderers of the Holy Chosen People of Allah!!!

Its a shame that it has to come to this to get people to change their opinion about the invasion/occupation, but it was an inevitability considering the volatile nature of the region. Had the U.S. not gone over there and blown up Iraq, there wouldn't be U.S. citizens there being killed and burned to show off to the media to fuel current public outrage.
The U.S. should have never gone over there and images like that are simply more reason not to continue to be there and waste lives on either side.
The administration has made strenuous efforts to keep the news from Iraq as upbeat as possible. It has banned TV crews from filming at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware, where the bodies of dead U.S. servicemen arrive back to the country. President Bush (news - web sites) has not attended any funerals of personnel killed in Iraq.

This is ridiculous. Shoktek, you talked about military men knowing what they're going to war for, but this is entirely different. Kill soldiers, fine. Shoot them, etc. Don't kill them, burn their bodies, drag them thru the streets, and rejoice at their charred corpses.
F*cking ridiculous. We need to get the f*ck out of there. I used to be in favor of the war, when it first started and we were apparently going to find WMD and root out terrorists I was all for it. But now, this has gone too far.
