My prayers go out to the families of these two brave young men. I can’t imagine the pain and suffering they endured. God bless you both, and thank you for laying your lives down on the altar of freedom.
I wonder how Dick Durbin feels about this? I wonder if Howard Dean is as appalled at this as he is at Gitmo? Where is Sean Penn now? Notice how no one is jumping to criticize and condemn? At least, not as fast as they would if something like this happened at Gitmo. I’m not saying these guys don’t have a problem with it. I’m just saying that they’re not as eager to criticize our foes as they are to criticize our soldiers.
What are the odds of someone actually coming out and saying that the deaths of these men are America’s fault? It’s a bet I won’t be taking. My guess is the bodies won’t make it back to American soil before someone on the Left makes such a remark.
"Well, we expect such behavior from terrorists"
"We’re better than them"
"We should be held to a higher standard"
I’m guessing this would be their way of rationalizing their criticism of American troops, and lack of criticism of terrorists.
"Just because they behave badly doesn’t mean we should"
"Two wrongs don’t make a right"
This is crap! If you want these wackos to cool it with this behavior, then it’s time to get Old Testament on them, it’s time to get Israeli on them. Eye for an eye my friend. If they want to execute prisoners, then so be it. They can call down that thunder and we’ll play too. Execute our troops, and we execute yours. We should be marching two men out of Gitmo and in front of a firing squad right now. That’s how General Patton would have handled this, and he had some pretty good results with it.
I can hear the collective gasp from all of you Lefties right now, so save your comments. I know what you’re gonna say, much of it is already in quotes above. I don’t care if you call me barbaric…I want to win this war! And if getting brutal will end this war that much quicker, then it’s time to get our hands dirty.
I’m tired of seeing Americans get beheaded. I don’t like it. So it’s time we make these idiots think the next time they raise their sword over the neck of an American.
We’re at war, and in war sometimes you have to kill enough of the enemy to convince them that keeping up the fight is not in their best interest. Sherman, Grant, Patton, Napoleon, Bradley and MacArthur all seemed to play by this strategy, and it seemed to work for them. So let’s apply it here. What have we got to lose?
