The Evil We Face - Video of Desecration of U.S. Soldiers

The Jawa Report has obtained video of the desecration of the bodies of U.S. soldiers Kristian Menchaca and Thomas Tucker in Iraq. I thought about writing that the evil we face is something we can't fully comprehend, but after re-reading the material below I decided that most people can comprehend it when faced with it. We live in a society where we are shielded even from so many of the images of 9/11. Sometimes those images should be faced. I am not going to watch the video. I believe the threat is real and I don't want those images burned into my mind for all eternity. Maybe those who don't take seriously the threat posed by Islamic jihadists should watch it, though. This is pure bloodthirsty evil and it is not something that can be reasoned with or appeased.

I was unable after several attempts to access The Jawa Report, but am quoting below from an email received from Rusty Shackleford:

The message introducing the video states that this video is presented as "revenge for our sister who was dishonored by a soldier of the same brigade," referencing the rape and murder of an Iraqi girl and her family by a group of American soldiers in al-Mahmoudiya.

WARNING: Graphic description and images below.

The two victims, Kristian Menchaca and Thomas Tucker, were members of the 101st Airborne division abducted by al Qaeda in Iraq. A third soldier died in the attack.

Their bodies were later recovered not far from where they had been kidnapped. The US military now says that their corpses were found tied together with a bomb between them. Three roadside bombs were planted around the bodies. The bodies had been decapitated.

The video bears the logo of al Qaeda in Iraq. Contrary to reports by al Qaeda, the video appears to show that the two soldiers were already dead before at least one of them was beheaded.

After a brief introdcuction with an image and the voice of Osama bin Laden, the video shows the two dead soldiers lying on a bridge. Both are already dead.

One of the men has already been beheaded, the other man is dead. An al Qaeda member holds the severed head of one of the dead soldiers.

One of the two soldiers appear to have been shot, the other has multiply wounds but appears to have also been hit by an explosive.

The video also blurs out one of the dead men's genitels, apparently al Qaeda believes showing that would be over-the-top.

Later, an image of the now dead leader of al Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Musab al Zarqawi, is superimposed over the film. Zarqawi had personally murdered several people by beheading and then released those films on the internet.

The entire video has a voice over of what sounds like Abu Musab al Zaraqawi--but it could be the new al Qaeda leader in Iraq calling Muslims to jihad. A nasheed, or Islamic jihad song, can also be heard in the
background."

We abide by the Geneva protocols - they don't.
We avoid targeting civilains at all costs - they don't.

I think we should start abiding by the letter of the Geneva protocols. Catch an Al Quaeda member or suspect - and kill him. No 3 hots and a cot in Gitmo, no worries about an Abu Grabass repeat - simply ask them if they're willing to talk, and if they aren't execute them immediately.

That's acceptable under the Geneva accords, since they're illegal combatants, who randomly target civilians, who have no identifying uniform or insignia, who use hospitals, schools and churches for firing points and weapons storage.

So I suggest we abide by the strict letter of the Geneva Conventions. We've been way too nice for our own good.

F*ck you and the horse you rode in on, MesaBlue. Your blind stupidity in supporting an administration that is grossly ineffective against jihadists barely elevates you above the jihadists themselves who commit these atrocities.

To say nothing about this conservative blog's total coverage blackout on the rape and murders which the jihadists are using to justify their horrible acts.

"Reality-based" indeed. Climb back into your fantasy world you where you conservatives pretend that US soldiers didn't murder innocent citizens, and where you conservatives pretend it's all the left's fault, and where you conservatives pretend it doesn't matter if we ever capture bin-Laden. You aren't ready for the real-word reality of 2500 lost US lives fighting an ineffective war that will turn into a civil war any second.

Chill on the language against wee-wee lee. He can't help himself. Someone in the depths of Bush Derangement Syndrome is a terrible thing to behold.

But hey, he's free entertainment. Those of you who read its posts can always count on him twisting, distorting, fabricating, belching, taking things out of context, missing the big picture, and regurgitating deranged leftist crap that's embarrassing to rational left-of-center people.

virgo1--By the way, this war is essential in pointing out just how retarded the left is. You are of course included.

So that's why there's a war in Iraq. I think everybody should redirect their anger at the American left towards jihadists in Iraq and Afghanistan and the people who mismanaged the occupation, whatever party or part of the military they may have come from. That goes double for you, Rob in Los Angeles--if you were half as pissed off at the terrorists as you are at Lee, liberalism, and the media, you could probably contribute something useful to the cause you support.

Well I think everybody should redirect their anger and focus on the entire democrat perpetual fraud , treasonous acts and outright lies. The Democrat leadership are shameless liars , they lie with a smile on thier face as the Bimbos in the democrat senate wage their campaign of lies against our Military. Barabara Boxer is a lying idiot. They have made it their Mission to undermine our President in a time of war and don't give a rats ass that they are destroying our Country with their LIES. They should all be line up and shot in their traitorous empty sculls. They are not Americans , they are our enemy. They are worse than the terrorists yet are complete cowards.

Jimmy:

OK, the subject is the video.

First: Anyone who has served long term in a combat zone knows that trophy pictures, including very nasty ones are not uncommon on any side. Literally hundreds of very grusome shots taken by our own troops exist, many are on the net.

Second: When it comes to videos specifically this is something WE taught the Jihandis. During the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan, the United states ran a program out of Peshwar and Boston University teaching this to Afghan rebels and foriegn fighters from Saudi. Videos were made of IED attacks on armored and other Soviet vehicles, shootdowns of helicopters, sniper montages, shootings of prisoners, and mutilation and beheading of Soviet troops. They were circulated 25 years ago in the Middle East to get funds and support for our Afghan and Saudi mujahedeen allies.

Now before anyone jumps on me, I fully support the war. I just marvel at how people can put their blinders on and make assumptions about how wars are fought and just how nasty they are.

On the idea of this being a revenge killing as well, if you look at the the names, the troops who raped and murdered and mutliated the 14 year old girl, killed her 6 year old sister and parents names have been release. they are not merely in the same division as the troops captured and mrdered they are close freinds. the names of the charged in the rape/murder case are not just men who went to the funeral, one of the charged is the guy who delivered the eulogy. We are talking about platoon, and in three cases squad level.

Again, we do need to be in Iraq. Our troops should not be defined by the acts of a few. But that does not mean that brutality in general only occurs on one side.

I find it amazing that the anger of the right over terrorist acts is always aimed at the left, instead of the leaders of this country who can't get a handle on the enemy we're fighting. If a democrat was in the White House now you hypocrites would be screaming for his/her lynching... instead you whine like babies about how it's someone else's fault.

Look in the mirror, jack*sses - it's your votes that have gotten us into this mess, and it's your complacency that keeps us there.

The video wouldn't load for me, but I did see the pictures before commenting. Since you don't state that you watched it, I'll assume you didn't. Chickensh*ts like you are all talk and no action.

"I doubt you have the guts or the nerve."

Who cares what you doubt Mesablue, Your doubts don't give you the right to attack me in the second comment on this story. Who the f*ck are you?

"They do that to innocent people everyday just to impose their will and ideology -- through fear and terror. They just don't videotape it and release it for mass consumption unless they have a political point to make."

Wow, thanks for filling me in. I'm angry enough about the continued successes of terrorists, that are resulting from our country's leadership failures, to stand up and speak out for change. You're angry enough to... uhm... find some way to blame the left. Thanks for the "info" dweeb - now crawl back into your hole.

"Just the fact that someone like you would tell me to go F*** myself makes my day -- at least I'm doing something right."

You're a good little conservative troll mesablue. You have every reason to be proud. Personally, I'm proud to be an American who is willing to stand up and speak out for change, even when it results in having to suffer abuse from idiot trolls like you.

But I am glad you take what you dish out without crying about it. I look forward to your next attack.

Gee, Lee - could it be because we see which side the Left is always excusing, and which side the Left consistently has no ideas about fighting other than "try to understand why they're mad at us and maybe we can appease them"?

I wonder when you will realize - they want YOU dead. They want ME dead. They want EVERYONE dead who does not believe THEY do. YOU are an abomination who needs to be wiped out. So am I. So is EVERYONE who doesn't believe like they do.

They post it on the internet, and you won't believe it. They call for jihad against the West, and you think it something else. You know something? It doesn't matter what you think it means. All that matters is what THEY think it means, and it means they want to kill.

They want to kill the West. They want to kill civilization as we know it. They HATE it. It's a complete and total abomination, that THEY consider it their DUTY to destroy or die trying.

It doesn't matter whether you're left or right, Republican or Democrat, voted for Bush or Gore or Kerry or Nader, whether you're a Christian or Atheist, drive a new H3 or ride a recycled bicycle, suppport PETA or the NRA, whether you're a plain old hetero or polymorphous perverse who prefers orgies in green jello - they want to kill YOU simply because you EXIST. That is intolerable in their view of the world. You must be removed. You must be erased. You must NOT be allowed to sully the purity of their Islamic wet-dream.

You cannot appease them, you cannot assuage them, you cannot deflect (aside from momentarily, putting your name/group/whatever a bit further down the list) them, you cannot buy them off (except temporarily). They are looking to kill. Their god demands blood and slaughter of the unbeliver. And the West doesn't believe. Therefore it must be destroyed.

And you're an unbeliever, Lee. Therefore, you're fair game. I'm marked. You're marked. We're all marked for death at their hands - if they can get their hands on us, or some weapon that can kill us.

What part of that is so unclear?

Lee:

"They want to kill the West. They want to kill civilization as we know it. They HATE it. It's a complete and total abomination, that THEY consider it their DUTY to destroy or die trying."

You guys can't even agree on who "they" are, much less pretend to mount an effective campaign to stop "them". 2500 Americans have lost their lives following you idiots into a "war on terror" that today's bombing shows has had ZERO effect on stopping "them" from continuing to to do "their" heinous acts.

It is crystal clear to me, and the majority of Americans, that the Republicans do not understand what the F*ck we're fighting.

6/24-27/06

"Do you approve or disapprove of the way George W. Bush is handling the situation in Iraq?"

Approve 40%

Disapprove 56%

Unsure 4%


"Which party do you think can do a better job of handling the situation in Iraq?"

Democrats 36%

Republicans 32%

Both Equally 6%

Neither (vol.) 15%

Unsure 11%

So while Republicans may still be in the position of power, Democrats are the party of choice going forward (and the poll results linked above show that the trend is increasing against Republicans). The majority of Americans have caught on that you consvervative idiots have your heads up your *sses, and have been so victimized by terrorism that you can't be in charge of the war on terrorism any longer.
