Soldiers Burn Taliban soldiers and use it for propoganda
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 10:02 PM by XOKCowboy
Saw this on AmericaBlog. Just disgusting. What's more disgusting are some of the remarks in the discuss section.

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Australian television on Wednesday broadcast footage of what it said was U.S. soldiers burning the corpses of two dead Taliban fighters with their bodies laid out facing Mecca and using the images in a propaganda campaign in southern Afghanistan.

The television report said U.S. soldiers burned the bodies for hygienic reasons but then a U.S. psychological operations unit broadcast a propaganda message on loudspeakers to Taliban fighters, taunting them to retrieve their dead and fight.

5. Remember when the mercenaries were burned...
and hung on the bridge? OMG the outrage at the desecration but this is just "war is hell". How blind can some people be? At least the Army is investigating according to the article.

4. I believed the Newsweek story..
about desecrating the Qur'an. I wouldn't be surprised if this was true.

6. Sgt. Jim Baker was doing psyops on the U.S. soldiers.
How in the hell can what he and the other soldier said be effective psyops against the taliban?
