Those are some very good words Tackleberry

With MLK and Ghandi though, they are not dealing with the Religous sect though.

But I really like what you said and I agree.

I'm just a hippy

True about the "religion" thing. A little different situation here.

i wonder if Donald Rumsfeld and Cheney will point out that the insurgents who murdered these soldiers were merely using "coercive interrogation techniques."

Sickening what those Fuckers did.

U.S. soldiers' bodies mutilated, booby-trapped

http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/meast/...ing/index.html

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- The bodies of two U.S. soldiers found in Iraq Monday night were mutilated and booby-trapped, military sources said Tuesday.

Pfc. Kristian Menchaca and Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker went missing after a Friday attack on a traffic control checkpoint in Yusufiya, 12 miles (20 km) south of Baghdad.

The sources said the two men had suffered severe trauma.

The bodies also had been desecrated, and a visual identification was impossible -- part of the reason DNA testing was being conducted to verify their identities, the sources said.

A tip from Iraqi civilians led officials to the bodies, military sources told CNN. The discovery was made about 7:30 p.m. Monday.

Not only were the bodies booby-trapped, but homemade bombs also lined the road leading to the victims, an apparent effort to complicate recovery efforts and target recovery teams, the sources said.

It took troops 12 hours to clear the area of roadside bombs. One of the bombs exploded, but there were no injuries.(Watch sad end to desperate search for soldiers -- 1:31)

The bodies were found in the Yusufiya area, Maj. Gen. William Caldwell said, adding he believes the soldiers were mortally wounded, then moved.

It was unclear whether he meant the wounds were suffered in the initial attack on a checkpoint or afterward. "Where we found them was not based on their own movements," he said.

The soldiers' families have been notified of the developments, he said.

The bodies were transferred to a coalition base and were to be taken to the United States for DNA testing.

Caldwell said he had not heard whether a note was placed on the bodies.

Sounds like they died at the checkpoint and were dragged off, mutilated and booby trapped

It's clear this is just political speech against Rumsfeld and Cheney.

Because the terrorists' greatest weapon is the Western media, and this is a big headliner.

Yes, they cannot win militarily they have to rely on propaganda - and it is effective to use the western media be it with more bombings around the Green Zone or by using stringers that can help get the other side of the story.
