Photos of dead "Insurgents" then and now (Warning: graphic content)
Edited on Mon Apr-12-04 03:07 AM by Sandpiper
Vietnamese "Insurgents"



On March 16, 1968 the angry and frustrated men of Charlie Company, 11th Brigade, Americal Division entered the village of My Lai. "This is what you've been waiting for -- search and destroy -- and you've got it,"

<snip>

As the "search and destroy" mission unfolded it soon degenerated into the massacre of over 300 apparently unarmed civilians including women, children, and the elderly.

Iraqi "Insurgents"





More than 600 Iraqis have been killed in Fallujah since Marines began a siege against Sunni insurgents in the city a week ago, most of them women, children and the elderly, the head of the city's hospital said Sunday.

1. Oh, fuck this shit
Not again. Not fucking again. If we weren't being lead by a strategic, amoral idiot, a limp dicked untreated junkie drunk slime bucket rich kid asswipe, this would not have happened.

War sucks. Children and wives die during war. So you better be goddam sure you need to fight one before you start it. We didn't need to start this war!

And how now can we claim to be different from Hussein? I feel like I need to take a shower ... but this won't wash off.

2. These are "ragheads" that the freepers keep talking about
"Cleaning up". Looks like they are getting their monies worth today, even working overtime on Easter Sunday.

3. I do read Free Rep and it does make me ill
I think we all should know that their are such people in the world that love the killing. If they really get all the power I am sure you will be hanging from the next tree from me. Sorry about that.
