Who Supports Al Qaeda Soldier Slaughter?

I've been looking over some of the comments made about Al Qaeda's claim that the kidnapping and killing of 2 American soldiers was in revenge for the rape and murder of a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and the murder of her family.

One of the fascinating details that seems to be lost on those who say liberals are cheering the slaughter of American soldiers by discussing the connection is that this connection between these 2 events wasn't first made by American liberals or by Al Qaeda or by Iraqi insurgants.

It was made by a guilt-ridden American soldier.

There may be no way of knowing if his fellow soldiers' alleged decision to commit rape and murder was the motivation behind the ambush. There's also no way of knowing how many other autrocities committed by American soldiers remain secret.

Only 2 facts are certain. American soldiers volunteered to be soldiers knowing they could be sent into deadly combat zones. No Iraqi girls volunteered to be be raped and murdered.

Oh, and there's a third fact. Rape and murder aren't effective anti-terrorism tactics.

It isn't treason or un-American to demand accountability and competence from our leaders and our military. Only lemmings blindly "stay the course."

Hi Marcella,
When this story made headlines around the world, I was concerned for the soldiers who do want to make a difference in the Iraqi. As a Canadian we have troops serving and it could be a news story in respect to Canadian Troops. I totally agree with you about: "Only 2 facts are certain. American soldiers volunteered to be soldiers knowing they could be sent into deadly combat zones. No Iraqi girls volunteered to be be raped and murdered.

Oh, and there's a third fact. Rape and murder aren't effective anti-terrorism tactics."

Take care and I hope the truth is found for the sake of the Iraqi girl who was raped and murdered with her family.

With rapes occurring everyday around the world it is a sad day!
