Some of our soldiers will die because of it. :sad:

I hope not. :( The way it was done wasn't our governments' fault; even the execution itself wasn't (he was tried and sentenced by Iraqi law). That won't make any difference to some people, I guess. But anyway, insurgents don't need a reason to kill our soldiers.

I didn't watch the actual execution ... only the bit up to where he has the rope around his neck. He does look pretty calm.

The US has already had over 3000 killed over there. So we expect things to get worse before they get better. I think we should hang the guy with the phone. They said there was only two phones there. And they were high ranking Iraq officials.

If we're gonna start hanging people ;) I suggest we start with the 'baddies' in the Iraqi government and then move on to the Iraqi police force and army. It must be awful for our troops to have to work alongside these not very cooperative bodies (especially the police) that are known to be infiltrated by insurgents, or the like ... Who do you trust? Tricky job. They're doing remarkably well, but I don't think Iraq's going to improve a great deal in the near future.

In my exceedingly humble ;) opinion, our troops are a sideshow for the insurgents. If we left they could concentrate on the main conflict as far as they are concerned - sectarianism.

Ant farm?? Not an expression I'm familiar with over here.

You can buy a package that has sand and live ants in it. You can see the ants working since the package is clear. If we really went after Iraq with everything we have there would only be sand and a few bugs. But we are too nice to do that.

Oh dear lol. We do have ant farms over here, but I've just never heard that description used for anything other than an ant farm. ;) It's ... umm ... a good description lol.

Btw, are you sure that we wouldn't find WMD buried in the sand???! lol

I personally wish the video was never leaked; it can only turn out to be a motivator for the insurgents and foreign fighters.

Very true. These things just keep happening. We really need to do better. Even if it means kicking some of our Iraqi "friends" butt. They need to shape up or we need to ship out!
