Why We Continue To Fight
For those who'd like to read about what the Indian people are saying after today's horrific terrorist attacks, this NDTV.com page has some enlightening comments.
And, for those who want to see it, The Jawa Report has the video of the mutilated bodies of the two American soldiers tortured and murdered in Iraq a couple of weeks ago (you'll have to scroll down a bit if you want to see the video; Warning -- it's very disturbing). Those who think that putting panties on someone's head is "torture" should really be the ones to go look at the video and see if they can see a difference. And no, I'm not interested in hoping we capture those responsible and ensuring they have a fair trial. For those who still don't understand it, we are at war; there are other ways to handle situations like this during wartime; these ways aren't pretty, but they get the point across, and maybe convince our enemies that it's not worth continuing the fight. [Intel Source for last link: CDR Salamander] I recognize that right now we don't have the national will to do this sort of thing anymore, but maybe if more people start to understand the true nature of our enemy, the jihadis will learn to fear the reaction of the "Amerian street" in the way we're always told to be sensitive to the concerns of the "Arab street".
For an alternate opinion on the video, John from Castle Argghhh!!! gives his reasons why we shouldn't watch it.
