Thanks to John Little for linking to PFC Tucker's last recorded phone message to his family:
Be proud of me Mom, I'm defending my country. Tell sis and my nephews hello for me, I'm OK, I'm on my way.

We're ALL proud of you, son. Thank you and God Bless You!
Is there a specific article you're referring to? Michelle's site is overwhelming...
We are proud of you PFC Tucker, very, very proud!
I am so sorry this happened, but my analysis is that the terrorists were so sorely pressed by the U.S. and Iraqi forces that they decided to kill the hostages then rather than hold them for a while for propaganda purposes. This is actually a good thing. We deprived the enemy of his orange jumpsuit videos.
May God have mercy on the souls of those who died, and may God have mercy on the souls of those who did this, for the United States Army shall have none.
From her article:
"There's another lesson, an unofficial one, which will be passed among the troops themselves. Never surrender. They'll just kill you anyway. It's better to go down fighting."
Sad for these young people to have to face that harsh reality. But true.
I think you are right. And thank you, God, for not letting them be used in those type of videos.
You're better than I am. These animals deserve no mercy.
The outrage the general in Iraq expressed over the media releasing the news of the deaths of these brave men before the families had been notified is shared by many of us. Another prime example of their inhumane attitude toward the military and America.
We need to freep them big time.
The photo of Pfc. Tucker brought the horror of this war too close to home this morning. As I looked at the photo on Fox News, I had only to glance up at the photo at one of my grandsons to see the exact same uniform and insignias. (These are photos at the end of basics - my grandson has gone on to get his wings (airborne) and now in SpecOps) - In addition,his middle name is Thomas and Tucker is a family name....and other similarities I wont mention.
I swear, if I hear one libTraitor denigrate the troops - and if they denigrate the war,they ARE against our troops - they know it, but don't dare say it for they know the public will not allow it - I swear, even tho an old great-grandmother, I may make the headlines for assault
I agree. My heart goes out to the friends, relatives, and comrades of the slain. The enemy cowardice shows in their prompt torture and murder of our boys. The enemy knows that they will be hunted down and served justice if they tried to hold onto our children. The enemy bought a few days for themselves by their prompt and cowardly reprehensible act of murder. I wonder how Murtha will use this tragedy to advance his leftist agenda?
I'm with you, I'm with you, I'm with you. How much coverage will these vicious murders get, compared to what our soldiers are faced with when they use their best judgement on the field under circumstances very few of us could ever fathom? Many Americans do not want to look into the face of the barbarity we are facing, and until we can deliver the unbending force needed to obtain security for our soldiers, based on fear and respect, we will not succeed. I'm sick of this cocktail party second guessing and condemnation for political gain, while these young men and women must endure these threats. You can be sure these murders will be out over the internet on video soon.
Sob caught in my throat as a lump.
Do away with the Geneva Convention now. It doesn't apply with these savages. We need to start executing the barbarians we have in custody now. I'm sick of the whole concern over how these evil beasts are treated. Our troops never have any chance and are fighting a bunch of cowards like no other war or time.

There may be a lesson before that one, too, one that I had
thought was already widely taught - don't chase perps in
Iraq - it's always an ambush.
There has been one report that the three attacked were
chasing attackers. I imagine there will be an inquiry,
and we'll find out.
Sad for the families, but it's really sort of amazing
that it's taken years for the first such incident to
happen, and it's encouraging that the kidnappers
could not use them for propaganda.
Specifically what makes you think their execution wasn't memorialized on video? We have two dead bodies. There's no assurance that a video won't be coming along.
You're right! The gloves should never had been on and "sensitivity training" and those responsible for it be damned.
It's certain that if there's mercy for those monsters, it would have to come from God--I have none whatsoever. Only one thing to be thankful for--apparently, the pressure was so heavy on them that they didn't have as much time to play their torture games as in other cases.
Everyone: Did you see how carefully the terrorists followed the Geneva Conventions? No? Neither did I. Compare the treatment of our troops to how we treat them. Panties on the head vs. head sawed off--now who has committed the atrocities??
.. from a slightly different perspective, the close-up (before capture) pictures of Nick Berg, he doesn't really favor my son at all...
..but in the orange jumpsuit & right before Zarqawi executes him....I see a young man much changed from the 'before' pictures....and from a distance, it is almost the exact image of my son.
Hard to explain...
..I cannot look at that picture, ever!
May God show great mercy to the families of those two brave soldiers ...and may He grant supernatural peace, as only He can bring...to their hearts and minds.

To you two "Heroes:"
I salute your Bravery, your Honor; and your dedication to Duty
I thank you for your service and having volunteered to serve your Country in order to help protect me and all of our fellow Americans.
I mourn your loss and my heart goes out to your family, relatives and friends.
Your sacrifice will NOT be remembered as having been in vain and we Veterans, especially, hereby recognize you our dear Comrades, as forever, Brothers-in-Arms.
As we reflect on the ultimate sacrifice you made, know that you are in our prayers and in our hearts; we ask God to Bless you and implore the Good Lord to provide you a special place in the hereafter. You deserve no less.
Take a deep breath and study some military history. They haven't roasted anybody over hot coals yet.
You're right; and of course it's
all just to vent venom at Bush.
They must be afraid the Dem
Party will just shrivel up and
fade away if they don't win in
You've got a lot of heart, Maam.
Thankyou for your contribution
in rearing a fine young man who
serves his country and has pride
in knowing his family stand behind
Can you really compare the magnitude of what we are up against. No kidding, there have been brutal events in past wars but it's like these savages are that and even more. It remains unprecedented what we are up against.
