    During a routine patrol in Baghdad June 2, Army Pfc. Stephen Tschiderer, a medic, was shot in the chest by an enemy sniper, hiding in a van just 75 yards away. The incident was filmed by the insurgents.

    Tschiderer, with E Troop, 101st “Saber” Cavalry Division, attached to 3rd Battalion, 156th Infantry Regiment, 256th Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, was knocked to the ground from the impact, but he popped right back up, took cover and located the enemy’s position.

    After tracking down the now-wounded sniper with a team from B Company, 4th Battalion, 1st Iraqi Army Brigade, Tschiderer secured the terrorist with a pair of handcuffs and gave medical aid to the terrorist who’d tried to kill him just minutes before.

    See the <a href="mms://wm.gannett.speedera.net/wm.gannett/atpco/071505sniper.wmv">video of the attack</a>

    Exactly what is it that you are questioning? My patriotism?

    I see. So your combat experience makes you more aware that everyone is out to get you?

    Based upon everything I've ever seen you post, that's a compliment.

    Thanks!

    And you can't reconcile the fact that not ALL Muslims are out for world domination. But, for the sake of argument, let's say you're right. Can you, the Great Military Tactician, explain how we are separating good guys from bad guys in Iraq if none of them are good guys? Why are we trying to establish a free state for bad guys if there are no good guys?
