A Midol Day
Anytown, Iraq-- Here is a picture from the April 2007 VFW magazine showing another successful take down in the Phony War on Terror [the photo shows the 1/5 Marines ''guard(ing) insurgents,'' 4/10/03.]
Look at the picture as if it were an old Coke commercial. Count the Marines. Then look at the ''suspected insurgents,'' replete in normal street clothes, and tied up like pigs, with something like Kotex pads covering their eyes. Why are there no captured weapons seen in the photo?
In previous wars, the U.S. personnel always proudly displayed the captured weapons to prove that the bad guys were really bad guys. It is generally called evidence.
If they're not insurgents, they'll be really pissed. There is no dignity in being hogtied and having sanitary pads wrapped around your eyes. Stripping citizen's dignity is not an excellent way to win hearts and minds.
