To the left, Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker, 25, of Madras, Oregon, to the right Pfc. Kristian Menchaca, 23, of Houston, Texas. Both abducted, tortured, and probably beheaded by Muslim terrorists. I was unable to find a photo of Spc. David J. Babineau, 25, of Springfield, Massachusetts, who was the driver of the Humvee in which the three men were on patrol and who was killed in the attack at which the other two were kidnapped.
This is the nature of the enemy the West is up against:
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- The bodies of two U.S. soldiers found in Iraq Monday night were mutilated and booby-trapped, military sources said Tuesday. Pfc. Kristian Menchaca and Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker went missing after a Friday attack on a traffic control checkpoint in Yusufiya, 12 miles (20 km) south of Baghdad. The sources said the two men had suffered severe trauma. The bodies also had been desecrated, and a visual identification was impossible -- part of the reason DNA testing was being conducted to verify their identities, the sources said.
An organization which calls itself "Mujahedeen Shura Council", allegedly an umbrella group for AQ in Iraq and four organizations of Sunni terrorists, claimed responsibility for the callous act:
"We announce the good news to our Islamic nation that we executed God's will and slaughtered the two crusader animals we had in captivity," says the claim, reportedly from the Mujahedeen Shura Council, a group linked to al Qaeda. "And God has given our Emir, Abu Hamza al-Muhajer, the good fortune of carrying out the legitimate court's command in person."
Cowards. Sexually frustrated illiterates. 7th-century Wife-Beaters and Child Molesters. Cruel, stupid, uncultivated, unshaven, unwashed Untermenschen and yes, if believe there are occasions when one can use this dreadful word. I'm thinking e.g. of what happened to Wesley Batalona, Jerry Zovko, Michael Teague and Scott Helvenston. I'm thinking of the swine who preferred to self-detonate in the middle of 7- and 8-year old children getting candy from a GI.
America is a nation of 300 million and a GNP of 11 trillion. It fields the world's most awesome military, equipped with state-of-the-art weaponry. It is a beacon for all those who cherish freedom, the "pursuit of happiness" and healthy self-development.
What are you going to do? Are you going to cut and run for cowards who are so spectacularly incapable of beating your troops in face to face combat they have to resort to butchering a few hapless tied up and powerless prisoners? Are you going to cut and run for this vermin, like Murtha and Kennedy want you to do?
Or are you going to stomp these cockroaches to death?
The choice should be obvious.
