Coward bombers

This war has had some sickening moments. In Baghdad, senseless death has become a way of life; you go grocery shopping, you get blown up. I have seen this happen.

But something came across the wire today that absolutely horrified me. Worse than the kidnappings, worse than the beheadings, worse than the chlorine gas burning your lungs until they fill with fluid and you drown. And I hate this feeling, this helpless feeling.

Two fuckers were driving a car and came up to an American check point. They had two kids in the back seat, a seven and a ten year old. So, after a cursory check, they were waved through - terrorists don’t drive around with kids in their car.

They proceeded to the next intersection, circled until they found a good spot, and parked the car in front of a busy market. The two men got out, locked the kids in, and calmly walked down the block. The car detonated three minutes later.

I had to read it three times just to make sure I understood what I’d read. How could these people do this to KIDS??? What kind of God is this God of Peace that destroys seven-year olds? And where did they get these kids? Just snatch them off of the street? So some mother somewhere in the Sadr City is just wondering where her kids are?? I hope those two fucks burn in hell for this. No, I hope THEIR kids are blown up. Shit. Except that would just mean more innocent kids are killed. I don’t know what I hope.

I am so glad that my family isn’t here. I just want to go home now… not to think about seven-year olds…

Your 7-year old just turn eight and no one...NO ONE is gonna take him from us!! He is safe and loved and wonderful and waiting for you!! He is surrounded by people who love him and peace too much to sacrifice him for a stupid cause. Jack is here and he loves you - as we all do and is waiting for his wonderful Dad to come home for good!!

It's a senseless war fought by blind religious zelots who will stop at nothing to... do what? What exactly is the point of blowing up two young kids? Whose god do they serve and for what purpose? The kids surely had nothing to do with any of this, so why sacrifice them? To show that they will stop at no barrier to promote their cause? Well, OK then, game over, they win. Let them have their land back. They can have their mud huts and ruined economy and tribal civil war, they can have it all, the oil too. And good luck to them. After we pull out most of them will be dead in three months or enslaved and longing for the good old days...
