I found this link earlier...
My dad is a veitnam vet with all the emotional baggage that entails. I know as a soldier he had to kill women and children who were carrying grenades or guns. He didn't want to and he had nightmares about it for years. But he came home alive.
Possibly I'm wrong, but I think we need to pull the press out of the war and let the soldiers do their job.
We have men getting killed because it's not PC to shoot back. I'm sorry if they have a gun or someone else has one and is shooting at OUR soldiers....you DIE. PERIOD.

I saw the Human Shield report and wonder if SH has a bunker under a Human Shield building or he's hiding in a tunnel under the city, if in fact he is still alive.
parker in arkie, I agree, there is too much press in the war.

I can't believe that the chain of command over those American troops didn't THINK
about that possibility....the one where the Iraqui soldiers dressed as civilians pretending to surrender....well....why on earth would that chain of command go in there like that! They totally underestimate SH in my opinion. There was and still is NO EXCUSE for the loss of lives that occurred in that massacre! If our intelligence and psychological propaganda isn't smart enough to believe that SH will do ANYTHING...include sending his troops towards our troops as helpless civilians just to get near our troops, then what else will he have in store for us????????????
And another thing....Why oh why did our Prez choose the "sandstorm season" to go to war over there???? Duh??? How smart was that...or NOT?
I have FIVE
nephews in the military as well as my husband who is in Germany. I won't mention where my nephews are for their safety, but I'm totally not wanting this war to take those boys out, nor anyone elses kids either, especially for stupid mistakes such as the "enemy troops dressing as poor helpless civilians" just to get close to our troops.
Why can't they find that man and get the job over with...they've only been on his tail for 13 years now. I truly hate to hear about the loss of innocent lives while they are in the process of looking for a madman.
