Comments: What Would Reverend Wright Say?

What? Is this true? Who is Hicks? Are these mercenaries or what? This seems impossible--how could they kill children? Please explain.

PFC Clifton Hicks testified about his experiences in Iraq at the Winter Soldier summit earlier this month.

This seems all too familiar to anyone who knows anything about Vietnam, unfortunately.

ANYBODY throughout history, ANY PLACE on planet earth, EVERYTIME there is a war---1st rule of thumb---kill the women and children first. (and if possible, kill all the men off next)

Rosemarie, it's just soldiers doing what soldiers ALWAYS do when they are occupying and suppressing an armed, hostile insurgent population. Fear is your friend, and violent instillation of it is your first duty.
We did it in Nam and previously in Korea.
We'll do it at home, too, should it come to that.

Rosemary - you seem very uninformed.

You sure she isn't just being sarcastic?
