In light of the global outrage surrounding burning Taliban corpses, I found this story particularly enraging:
U.S. Confirms Killing Of Contractors in Iraq
Excerpt from Washington Times article:
The commander said the four men -- identified by the Telegraph as employees of the Halliburton Co. subsidiary Kellogg Brown & Root -- realized their convoy had taken a wrong turn and were desperately trying to escape from the town when their vehicle was attacked by insurgents.
Two contractors who were not killed in the initial firing were dragged from their vehicle, and one was shot in the back of the head, the newspaper said. The crowd "doused the other with petrol and set him alight. Barefoot children, yelping in delight, piled straw on to the screaming man's body to stoke the flames," according to the report.
The crowd then "dragged their corpses through the street, chanting anti-U.S. slogans," the newspaper reported. [...] "Soldiers responded to assist the convoy, administered first aid to two wounded contractors and evacuated the remains of four wounded contractors killed in the attack," a military spokesman told the Reuters news service in a statement Saturday. [...] The incident recalled a similar one in March 2004, when a mob in the insurgent stronghold of Fallujah killed four U.S. security contractors, mutilated their bodies and hanged them from a bridge.
Lest anyone smugly sneer that "this is what we get in retaliation for burning Muslim corpses", let me point out that this outrageous incident occured on September 20th. That's well over a month ago, long before the world started castigating our soldiers for burning Taliban bodies that had already been dead for over 24 hours! AT LEAST THE BODIES WEREN'T STILL ALIVE, PEOPLE!!!!!!!
Does anyone find it "vile and repugnant" that the Muslims, including their creepy, psychopathic monster children, burned a man alive?!!!
I have to stop before I cuss a blue streak. I promised I'd tone it down. But this. INFURIATES. me.
From a former Haliburton hand, R.I.P.
Sick. Very sick people who are over the top on hypocrisy.
I right there with you brother (or sister!) All is fair in war unless you're the US and then we're expected to bow to everyone else's sensibilities. Screw that. I wish the PC crows would get the heck out of the way and let our troops do their jobs, no second guessing. I hate the MSM for the way they treat our heroes. Period.
Now why didn't this get even a fraction of the coverage of the burning of a few dead bodies in Afghanistan?
Well, we now know our miltary's next target.
Point of view.
To a Muslim the man was an infidel. As such he was not a man and burning him was OK.
The western world must remember that to Muslims we are all infidels and as such are targets for extermination.
Spray town with pig remnants, apply napalm in adequate quantities. Film proceedings and show on Arab TV as an object lesson in the wages of misbehavior.
Yes, you are not alone. Abhorrent, disgusting, criminal....Well worth a number of Daisy Cutters.
ll is fair in war unless you're the US and then we're expected to bow to everyone else's sensibilities.
US or ISRAEL - who is held to even higher (suicidal) standards than the US
and the west is trying to bring these barbarians into the 21st century?
its hard to understand why the powers that be giving gifts and efforts of economy, security, societal infrastructure are knowingly being wasted on cave people.
people still living in the 7th century
these people obviously do not need the help and need to mire in their mud indefinitely. only problem is they will continue to export their superior mud.
makes a person think perhaps cleansing is not that bad an idea
But instead of being met with, "Payback's a b*tch, isn't it?" there are eager, virulent anti-Americans and members of the press (but I repeat myself) who use their expensive, monopolistic 50,000 watt blowtorches and 120pt typefaces a half million copies per day to throw these cowardly mouse sentiments back into the faces of freedom-loving, President-supporting people of America saying that such things are well-deserved evidence that the Administration and its supporters are clearly in the wrong, if not bloodthirsty, insensitive murderers in ever so many ways.
WOW! This atrocity got zero news coverage.
Sick puppies. They should be dealt with accordingly.
Infuriates me too. Why in God's name haven't we leveled that town? Still waiting for "shock and awe." I worry we don't have the will to win over there. Are we at war, or not?
You're right - and I don't know how Israel can stand it. What's more depressing is that there are so few posts to this thread. Ugh.
Don't worry. Sunday's are always slow.
Sunday's = Sundays
Was this in the news anywhere? I don't remember seeing it on any tv show or even hearing a reference to it.
