Barbari sunt, barbarice egit - and could be acronymed into BSBE for the ease of use. After all, why do all our standard acronyms like LOL, WTF and the rest of them have to be in English? Latin could be just as good on occasion.
What's the matter, AP? Are you beginning to get a little tired of these heroic "insurgents"?
Did any of your Muslim cameramen participate in the drillings and mutilations, by any chance? Did you just notice that your Islamist friends are kind of nasty?
"In the past year, thousands of bodies have been found dumped across Baghdad and other cities in central Iraq, victims who were tortured, then shot to death, according to police. The suspected militia killers often have used electric drills on their captives' bodies before killing them. The bodies are frequently decapitated."
Before the election, all you were reporting was how many deaths there were, and blaming it on the insurgents' hatred of U.S. troops. Did you just wake up to what has been happening all year (and the year before that)? Or are you just painting a different picture now the election is over?
Smart thinking. Always keep that in mind.
What a fun bunch, just think their friends in Iran will have nukes soon!
Ackk ackk a dackk dacckkk!!
It's a religion of peace

Perhap's its time to raise Sadr to the yardarm, and have his body hacked to bits.
I thought these cruelties were reserved for the Muslims' holy season of Ramadan. I guess it was just too much fun to limit the killing to just one month. Just when you thought they couldn't get much lower...
Just makes me all aquiver with joy Iranians with nukes./s
We have shed 3,000 lives to give these people freedom and democracy.
This is what they are doing with it.
Too bad Dubya didn't know in advance of his experiment, that arab muslims are culturally and religiously incapable of civil, peaceful democratic self-rule.
I understand why he was so committed to the experiment. It was his compassionate side.
They behave in Iraq today as they have behaved throughout the region, for hundreds of years. Saddam fit right into the cultural context.
The acts ordered by Saddam differ little from these we are witnessing by both sides of the "new Iraq." The free, democratic, unified, multicultural Iraq.
1. Were they aware of what was going on, or is the AP using 'failed to intervene' because 'stood by and did nothing' isn't true?
2. How does one intervene with a flaming human? Does the AP expect the military to carry fire extinguishers at all times?
There's no doubt things are a mess in Baghdad at the moment, partly because the U.S. acceeded to the Iraqi requests to pull troops out of Sadr City. But, as usual, one has to parse AP stories carefully to get past the reportorial hand-wringing and find the truth.
This might work if we could get weapons into the hands of all Iraqis, even youngsters, hand-grenades if possible,
It seems the Muslims in Iraq are continuing to battle between themselves. We should get out of the way and let them fight it out.
I love it! GIGO in modern dress!
That said, their sectarian stuff doesn't bother me that much - our (Catholic) cathedral has a mural of a 16th c Irish bishop (Desmond Hurley, Archbishop of Dublin and great great etc. uncle of one of our modern bishops) having his feet boiled in oil - before Queen Elizabeth I personally ordered him executed. Sectarian disputes are nasty.
One thing that you can bet, however, is that the Muslim sects have one common enemy: the infidel West. I think that's more of a concern to us than their internal disputes. Paradoxically, I think their internal disputes may lead to their uniting against us, the infidels.
Words fail me.
That time was 3+ years ago.
Bremer really screwed the pooch on that one. On a lot of things.
