http://www.homestead.com/prosites-prs/pictures033104.html Why do the US newsgroups hide reality from US citizens? Are they afraid that we will see what really happens in the world and upset the poor, sensitive, Democratic morons that would prefer we stay disjointed as a nation? Are they afraid we might start forming different opinions about things? The rest of the world is not "sheltered", why are we? While we are in Iraq, having freed them from a dictator, one would think that the people would want to do all they could to assit us in setting up their country. When an atrocity like this happens, one would think that maybe the local poplulace would assist in the capture of the perpetrators, but the following quote seems to say otherwise. ""Muslims must not denounce other Muslims," militant Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammad told the British Broadcasting Corporation. "Cooperation with the authorities against other Muslims, that is an act of apostasy." http://www.washingtontimes.com/upi-breaking/20040401-042817-2005r.htm So, since we cannot expect any help from the locals, maybe we need to escalate our tactics. I think such acts might make us want to follow Gen Blackjack Pershing's policy of giving every terrorist a free burial, along with a pig carcass to keep him company in the hereafter!!!
