    What's your opinion of what the United States should do in response to the two soldiers who were captured, tortured, killed, mutilated, and left out in the open with booby traps all around them for their fellows soldiers to find?

    I post on a couple of different boards, and the general concensus is that these two deaths are no different than any of the other 2500 GI's who have been killed.

    I don't think it's the same. They were taken alive.

    What's your opinion?

    How can we sort out all the animals? These people kill their own.

    Demolish and kill everything within one square mile of where the soldiers were found. Then seed the rubble with mines so it cannot be rebuilt. Repeat each time Americans are killed. When the country is destroyed confiscate the oil as a cost of doing business and leave after thirty days of no attacks.

    -or-

    Publicly execute senior prisoners and leave the bodies out in the elements to weather away for a few weeks. Bury them in hog troughs. Videotape the process and override local tv and radio transmission with sights and sounds for a few more months. Repeat each time Americans die.

    -but-

    None of the above will happen because in spite of the MSM allegations to the contrary we are the good guys. We do have a sense of Honor. We do treat enemies better than our own guys are treated. But there are days I wish I were the guy in charge....... Today is one of them.

    If I were in charge, I'd place immediate incentives for finding these guys. Anybody with a viable lead that results in finding these guys gets a bonus (for those in uniform) or a bounty (for civilians). For those actually finding the guy, I'd put a bounty on their heads so big, we'd be getting Hutts trekking all the way over here to collect on it. By the way, the bounty's cut in half if they're taken dead, but better dead than not at all. When I got my hands on their worthless heads, I'd put them on trial publicly and have their executions be carried out by a firing squad consisting of the squad these two soldiers were in. Knowing how professional and honorable our boys are, I'd be willing to bet they wouldn't even stoop to shooting for maximum pain inflicted. I might even be convinced to go back to the age old practice of putting their heads on pikes as a warning to others.

    First thing I would do is issue orders and new rules of engagement:

    1) IF you think you found terrorists or civilians hiding terrorists...kill them.

    2) If you fnd a weapons cache in a house, blow up the cache in place (too bad about the house.)

    3) If you find civilians in a house where a cache is found....kill them.

    4) If you take fire from a house, call an airstrike on that house or the heaviest firepower available.

    5) If you take fire from more than two houses in a town, level the town.

    6) If any motor vehicle approaches within 200 feet of a US/coalition convoy, destroy it.

    7) If any person is found fabricating, storing or emplacing explosives of any type .... kill them.

    8) Take no prisoners.

    I would make a few policy changes too.

    A. Stop giving money to the "aggrieved" families. Your son, father, mother, sister, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew (whatever) got killed...sorry about that.

    B. Build your own damn power plants, schools, hospitals etc.

    C. Seal off the borders...any civilian found crossing the borders of Iraq in either direction will be executed.

    D. Focus on protecting the oil infrastructure and pump the country dry. Take the oil back to the US...every ounce of it.

    E. Let the Iraqis make their own government any way they want. If we dont like it, we destroy it.

    F. No media allowed in Iraq, especially US media.

    I agree with that.

    Except the oil part. We're not supposed to be there for the oil, remember? Other countries have oil. We don't need it from Iraq, and it's not the reason we invaded. No matter what liberals like to think.

    First of all, you are assuming I give a flying poo about what other countries or the libs think.

    Second, if you remove all the oil, the economies of these medievil countries collapse and they can go back to herding camels (peacefully) and we (the US) dont have to worry about them buying weapons and explosives. That is, of course, assuming the ME doesn't corner the market on sand and then holds the worlds concrete manufacturing mega complex hostage. So it is not about oil...it is about removing the financial means for continuing to support terrorism.
