....our Nam vets "Ghengis Khan" and being guilty of "murder rape and plundering/"
If our soldiers were at the ammo dump, and allowed the explosives to be re-captured, how are they NOT guilty of dereliction of duty?
How are John Kerry's allegation re al Quaqaa NOT the same as his accusations after Viet Nam??
I can't tell you how angry this makes me. I now understand how good people come to do bad things.
"Jhengis Khan..." They are one and the same, Kerry would testify that our men eat Iraqi children if he thought it would get him more votes. Then he would make a speech to the military on how much he loved him.
I can't think of a more worthless person.
Iraq under Saddam Hussein was essentially one gigantic ammo dump. Coalition forces have destroyed something like 400,000 tons of explosives so far and it's not clear that the explosives from the El caca dump are actually NOT in the pipeline to be destroyed right now or weren't destroyed already (if they had been relocated at some point by Saddam). The access road to El Caca only goes one place and that's to the main north/south highway through Iraq. At the times in question this road was in continuous use night and day by U.S. forces according to a statement by the ex-Police Commissioner from N.Y.C. who was acting occupation authority Iraqi Interior Minister.
Undoubtedly, explosives have fallen into the hands of insurgents because Iraq was simply overflowing with the stuff. Securing all of it was never a realistic option.
