“They ranged from little babies to adult males and females. I’ll never be able to get that out of my head. I can still smell the blood. This left something in my head and heart.”
– Lance Corporal Roel Ryan Briones, talking about the victims of the Haditha massacre by US Marines
Now you’ve got it straight from a Marine: Babies were killed by US Marines at Haditha. Lance Corporal Briones had to take photographs of it all, and clean up the “mess”. That mess included a little girl whose “head was blown off and her brain splattered on his boots”. They don’t put that sort of image into the Marine Corps recruiting posters.
So, where are the Pro-Life demonstrators? Why aren’t they protesting this massacre?
Oh, that’s right. They’re too busy engaging in anti-gay protests at the funerals of American soldiers.
Golly, that makes the right wing look bad. So, the President of the United States just signed a new law banning such demonstrations, even though the law is plainly unconstitutional, violating the right to free speech.
It was an odd choice for President Bush, who has refused to attend the funerals of the soldiers he sent off to their death to find weapons of mass destruction that never existed.
No sense to any of it.
