A Message for Fallujah
WSJ.comOpinion Journal ^ | April 1, 2004 | Peggy Noonan

The world is used to bad news and always has been, but now and then there occurs something so brutal, so outside the normal limits of what used to be called man's inhumanity to man, that you have to look away. Then you force yourself to look and see and only one thought is possible: This must stop now. You wonder, how can we do it? And your mind says, immediately: Whatever it takes.

I guarandamntee you one thing Peggy, the message sent to Fallujah will be the antithesis of the message sent to Mogadishu.

If the USA does not go after those who did this and participated in this, we are just asking for some more of the same.

This is the Clinton Legacy! These b@stards on the 9-11 Commission want to point fingers!? They can point their middle finger right at "The Stain," Bill Clinton. His cowardice in Somalia only convinced Usama and his demon-possessed minions that the US was weak, and Clinton's weakening of the CIA's intelligence gathering capability (human intelligence) hamstrung us and kept us from learning what al-Qaeda was up to prior to 9-11. That's the whole story -- book it; print it; adjourn the Commission.

And a word of warning to the sub-humans in Fallujah...You're not dealing with a coward in the White House. You're paying for this.

This question is bugging me?

Who took the film footage and the photos?

If it were a journalist, why didn't the mob turn on them?

If it was a local, why would they take such "damning evidence"?

....and, to make sure the point isn't lost on them, blow up the bridge.

The hell with the bridge, blow up the town.

give them dresden... nagasaki.
that's something they will "get."

Char about forty thousand of them in an instant.
this city is a KNOWN terror center.
fry it.

give them 24 hours to produce each of the young men.
and then when they fail, or ask for an extension.
fry them all.

film it.
show it all over the planet.
muzzies better get it straight.
we don't have to use targetted humane bombing... we can be more brutal than they ever dreamed.

no hanging bodies.
just glass, molten rock, iron and smoking ash piles.

meet the infidels abdul...

I have been sick about this all day. I want some serious action and a bunch of dead young men(Iraqi's) in Fallujah.

I want to see those damn smiles blown off their smug faces.
