Up in smoke

A revelation likely to be buried/denied by the usual "they're liberated" crowd and the mainstream media:

"US soldiers in Afghanistan burnt the bodies of dead Taliban and taunted their opponents about the corpses, in an act deeply offensive to Muslims and in breach of the Geneva conventions.

"An investigation by SBS's Dateline program, to be aired tonight, filmed the burning of the bodies.

"It also filmed a US Army psychological operations unit broadcasting a message boasting of the burnt corpses into a village believed to be harbouring Taliban.

"SBS said Australian special forces in Afghanistan were operating from the same base as the US soldiers involved in the incident, although no Australians took part in the action."

Any journalists care to ask whether Australian forces know of such practices?

"...they hate our values..." Gee, I wonder why? So typical that 'God fearing soldiers of the USA' do the devil's work. Join the Army, travel the world, meet interesing people-and kill them.

Shabadoo is starting to scare me.

Shabydoo: Violating fundaments of the major faith of a country = BAD for winning hearts and minds. Unless of course, you regard all Islam as your enemy... but then your talking about a war on the biggest religion in the world. Was it really The Crusades Mark II that you were looking for?
