Read this if you truely believe that we are the bad guys in Iraq
A large man dressed in military fatigues, boots and cap approaches from behind and covers her mouth with his left hand. In his right hand, he clutches a large knife with a black handle and an 8in blade. He proceeds to cut her throat from the middle, slicing from side to side.
Whatever your political bent, you must see evil for what it is. This is our enemy in the war on terror, a savage torturing beast, who savors pain enflicted on the helpless. No one even on the wildest political fringe could say that this was the work of freedom fighters. This is a form of cruelty so devoid of humanity that it makes you tremble with rage at the filth that could do such a thing.
And we are supposed to leave Iraq to these thugs?
Cut and run? The true elements in Iraq that want to work to a peaceful future are ones like Atwar, and she died as a patriot, a true martyr. She murdered no one, and had her life horrendously taken from her for doing something we take for granted, speaking her mind. If you think she deserved to die this horribly for doing that.. That the scum who did it were somehow justified because of US actions..
I read things like this and just wonder, really wonder. How in God's name could people be so blind.
You read things like this, .. It seems so long ago when I was innocent of the horrors that walk the earth. I look in on my sleeping children now, and envy their innocence. I wish that someday they would never have to read, or hear, or see such things. I also know that this is the kind of terror that would be visited upon them if we don't stand up to it now. The ones who killed Atwar would just as gladly visit this on so many more.
This war is personal, a battle to keep them from bringing this kind of thing to our shores, and eventually, to drive it from theirs.
We cannot free the world, but we can make a start in that direction. Do their children deserve it any less than ours?
