FREAKING CONSPIRACISTS

Well, take this link for what you will. FYI, the link is to
Digital Journalist, a source that is often considered very reliable and rarely gets into the partisan speak. and I don't think they are here. But take as is.

They tell a tale of how Gulf War troops in 1991 buried alive Iraqi troops and then when a group of journalists was on a tour, tried to dent it. But one guy, who was very familiar with the stench and the sights of the Vietnam killing fields was suspicious and started asking questions.
It wasn't until late in the afternoon of Feb. 25 that the press pool was permitted to see where the attack occurred. There were groups of Iraqi prisoners. About 2,000 had surrendered. But there were no bodies, no stench of feces that hovers on a battlefield, no blood stains, no bits of human beings. "You get a little firefight in Vietnam and the bodies would be stacked up like cordwood," Daniel said. Finally, Daniel found the Division public affairs officer, an Army major.


And my point here? Not that war is ugly - duh - but that we are not so morally superior as we may think we are. That's why we need to prove a CONCRETE case against Iraq. Right now we've just got the mix being stirred by the machine.
