Breaking: U.S. Soldiers (*gasp*) blindfold Iraqi prisoners!

January 21, 2008: An Iraqi soldier guards suspects arrested during a joint U.S.- Iraqi military operation near Baqouba. AP

The New York Times has broken another important story that is just outrageous: Our soldiers are actually blindfolding Iraqis captured on the battlefield! Forget abu Ghraib. That's yesterday's news.
What, exactly, did these men do to justify blindfolding them and forcing them to their knees on a concrete floor, their heads pressed against the wall? In the United States, kidnappers, rapists, and mass murderers are not treated this way. Timothy McVeigh was not treated this way.
Read the rest.

Where is Senator Dick Durbin on this? Where is Cindy Sheehan? We need to demand accountability! Heads should roll!

Meanwhile, in other news not as noteworthy (after all, it didn't appear at all in the NYTimes, so it can't be news), 12 year old Taliban boy saws off the head of a hostage.

After Bush leaves office and any of the candidates sworn in running today will make matters worse and more politically correct. We will no longer have the capability to wage war due to lawyers and political correctnes. Gathering up prisoners from the battlefield will entail calling them a limo and driving them to the mosque and having us then apologize for us capturing them.

Against my own personal beliefs it's becoming too much of a temptation to wish ill on someone so I'd better stop talking about it.

Nice posting!

Unbelievable. There's absolutly no left-wing outcry on childhood Islamic terrorism.

Meanwhile, Code Pink protesters up in Berkeley are hoisting signs reading "Support the Iraqi Resistance," which is, of course, the call to kill American troops.

And people wonder why I say the Democrats - or at least their base - have aligned with our enemies.

Not only the loony left is guilty of getting things out of proportion. So are the anti-McCainites.
