"A group of American anti-war demonstrators who came to Iraq with Japanese human shield volunteers made it across the border today with 14 hours of uncensored video, all shot without Iraqi government minders present. Kenneth Joseph, a young American pastor with the Assyrian Church of the East, told UPI the trip "had shocked me back to reality." Some of the Iraqis he interviewed on camera "told me they would commit suicide if American bombing didn't start. They were willing to see their homes demolished to gain their freedom from Saddam's bloody tyranny. They convinced me that Saddam was a monster the likes of which the world had not seen since Stalin and Hitler. He and his sons are sick sadists. Their tales of slow torture and killing made me ill, such as people put in a huge shredder for plastic products, feet first so they could hear their screams as bodies got chewed up from foot to head."


And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we fight.

Regardless, if it was up to me, I wouldn't let these people come back to the U.S. They chose a tyranny over America. Now they should have to live with that choice. We don't need citizens like these. There's Iraqis who deserve to come here and get a chance at a better life more than these traitors deserve to come back and write a book and make money off having turned their backs on their country.

Interesting how some folks need to see the real world first hand to realize it's not a nice place.

I see no difference in what they did and serving in a foriegn army.
Traitors, each and every one of them.

I think we should have mercy on these people.

For one thing, they were probably brainwashed for decades about how America is always wrong, that we're imperialistic, that our enemies are right, blah blah blah.

Let's let them eat crow, and tell others their stories, then pushing them into a federal penintentiary.

So now withthe foreign shields out of the country, the Iraqui army is using their own women and children as human shields.

TERRORIST COWARDS

Cold, brutal, reality has a way of doing that(shocking).

But you are still a coward and a traitor.

Some people delude themselves further by thinking their own analyses of information in the media is accurate because the government is always wrong.
