    Not confirmed by US military, but Fox News reports Iraqi govt has confirmed to them that the two missing soldiers' bodies were found on the streets, near where they went missing.

    Bastards!

    Oh man, that's what I was afraid of. At least they weren't mutilated on Al-Jazeera.

    How ironic that we're court-martialing Marines and Soldiers right now for over-reacting during an attack. Then on the other hand, we're telling them (or we SHOULD be telling them): "Don't get captured--you will be killed." That's a lot of weight for young men to carry.

    My sympathy to the families, and prayers for the safety of all y'all still over there. Take care.

    And, yes, it appears they were tortured.

    Bless them and their families.

    from one who sleeps well at night due to their sacrifices, and is eternally grateful to them, and their brothers.

    It should be evident to all US Forces that surrender is NOT an option. DO NOT expect humane treatment and FULLY understand that you will be killed and your headless body dumped in the streets

    Go down fighting my brothers in arms. Better than being at the mercy of those ragheads.

    they were also tortured, and while specifics obviously weren't aired they did make a point to say that it was BRUTAL.

    And these aholes whine and moan about Guantonamo Bay? About a slight mishandeling of a book? Interegation methods that are only torture in the eyes of bliss ninnies? I fail to see why the hell we worry about the idiots whining that we torture people when they do this and cut off heads.

    now let's see...

    If there is an international outcry from "the world community".

    Why do we maintain treaties with those who sympathize more with our enemies than with us?

    Let's see what Amnesty International and the Red Cross have to say about this one.

    G-d bless those guys

    I am pretty sure (based on the one conversation I had with a Marine headed back for his THIRD Iraq tour) that the folks in the sandbox are aware of the consequences of getting captured by the "insurgents."

    According to news reports, these two guy were PFC's whose Specialist got wiped out first, leaving them to fend for themselves. :(

    IF they got the Jihadi Necklace treatment by this al-Muhajir person (however you spell his name), I won't be surprised if the "Haditha ROE" becomes the defacto standard . . .:uhoh:

    I was going to say something about eye for an eye, but it really wouldn't be high road and I wont.

    Sufice to say, eye for an eye.

    I want to know where the protests and outcry from the UN are over this.

    No surprise, other than the quickness. I was expecting AQ to drag this out with lots of videos and demands. Hopefully we'll get more of the story at some point.

    We should have called in the moabs. The captured soldiers were already as good as dead at that point, and we had a chance to take out a real rat's nest. Whether we do it or the militias do it, someone at some point is going to have to have the will to clean out these pits. Even the children in these insurgent strongholds are little demons.

    All the above I agree with, but two PFCs murdered. One SP4 killed last Friday in the attack. Where were the NCOs?

    Our troops are fighting an enemy whose thinking is from the 13th Century.

    God bless our Armed Services.

    Oh man.
    I have the worst feeling that things to come are going to make the Haditha incident look like childs play. :(

    Senate hearings soon?

    I'm sure that Barbara Boxer, Kerry, and Murtha will be calling for Senate hearings soon on this torture issue ...

    Oh, it was our people that were the victims, never mind, no political points to be scored based on that.

    May God bless and comfort their families.

    For the families sake, I wish they had not been so graphic in the description of how they died.

    But every trooper over there knows what they are in for now, if they didn't before, and knows that surrender is not an option in any circumstances

    When do the gloves finally come off? They've been doing this type of stuff for decades. Remember the soldiers in Somalia that were dragged out of their crashed helicopter and dismembered and dragged around town?

    What about the KBR employees that they burned, mutilated and hung off a bridge?

    And the ACLU and Amnesia International complains about things like panties on heads, dropping a book on the floor, putting the air conditioner at 70 degrees and handing out 4 sheets of toilet paper as 'torture'. :fire:

    If these Hajis had a clue, they'd be begging our guys for protection. When the Sheit dominated army and militias don't have us looking over their shoulder, they won't be bound by the rules of war. And as much desire we have for revenge, the people to the south have it a thousand fold. I don't expect anyone in the triangle to be left alive.

    Sad to hear this; condolences to the families and survivors...

    That said, we should take the first 20 detainees at Guantanamo and execute them and film it live then deliver the video to Al Jazerra. Why?

    This is not a conventional war but a war against the mindset of the Muslim terrorist extremists where conventional Christian principles and laws of war no longer apply. The enemy practices guerilla tactics while we jail and schackle U.S. Marines for suspected errors in protocol. Under such a system: WE WILL LOSE. We can't win.

    Therefore, when fighting cockroaches fight like a cockroach; they kill two of ours twenty of theirs should die. Is such a process barbaric? Yes. But then again, war is barbaric; let's play to win. Let's line up all suspected terrorist insurgents in Iraq and make them walk the roads they mined with IEDs...

    Until we decide to lower ourselves to the level of our opponents in this war, such atrocities as these dead American soldiers will become common place; then enemy is winning the hearts and minds with brutality; we need to address the enemy with like terms and methods.

    If we don't, this war will go on without end.
