DU Gloating Over Two Dead Soldiers
If the abductors of those two GIs were *really, really* shrewd... I mean really shrewd... they would treat the POWs as humanely as possible. They would give them clean cells with as many creature comforts as possible. They would provide them with clean clothes and toiletries and three squares a day. They would allow them recreation and reading materials.
This would get out to the world community, and it would make Bush look really, really bad. Perhaps photos of the POWs would appear on the internet. Even an interview or two.
The entire world would see how the Iraqis treat their prisoners of war. And this would be compared to the way Bush treats his POWs. Compared to the photos of Abu Ghraib and the reports of GitMo in the wake of Bush opting out of the Geneva Convention.
This would be the biggest story of the three-year invasion and occupation. And it would make Bush look very, very evil.
Unless of course the abductors weren't Iraqis or insurgents after all, but some psych-ops group tied to the Bushistas looking to boost Bush's popularity in the US with more fear and revulsion. Then all bets are off... (KansDem)
This poster--KansDem--has written the most disgusting post I've ever read in my life. He only wants our men treated well while in enemy hands TO MAKE BUSH LOOK BAD!
Nevermind wanting the men to live so they can come home to their families and lead happy lives. Nevermind not wanting the men tortured, or wanting the Iraqis to live up to the Geneva Convention--or any decent human standards. This guy wants them reduced to commodities with which to besmirch the reputation of a second-term President--just because they hate him!
If anything more clearly delineates the character, values, and goals of the Democrat party, I don't know what it could be!
