Deafening Silence On Karbala From Geneva Fans

It is rather sad that when a clear violation of international law provokes not a peep of outrage from those who claim to support those standards.

I guess the reason is, of course, that those who have waxed eloquent or raved vehement about the rights of captured terrorists only believe the US needs to abide by the Geneva Conventions -- the jihadi pigs who executed two prisoners in cold blood won't have a single voice raised against them by opponents of the war in Iraq. And they certainly won't be accused of crimes against humanity or violations of international law.

Those who insist so loudly on following Geneva Conventions rules regarding captured terrorists need to take a long, hard look at the latest atrocity in Iraq, news of which broke yesterday.

Four U.S. soldiers, one of them a New Yorker, were captured - and promptly murdered - last Saturday in the Shiite holy city of Karbala, 50 miles from Baghdad, officials confirmed.

Two of the slain soldiers were found handcuffed together in the back of a vehicle.

Soldiers die in combat, of course.

But the murder of disarmed and helpless troops - killing POWs, in effect - is what's at issue here.

The killers traveled in vehicles used by U.S. government convoys, wore U.S. combat fatigues, had American weapons and spoke English. That got them past an army checkpoint and into a U.S. compound - where they opened fire with grenades and rifles.

Among those killed was Pfc. Shawn Falter, 25, of Homer in northern Westchester. Officials confirmed that he was killed last Saturday after being ambushed in Karbala, but didn't name the two victims of the atrocity.

The murder of helpless captives is a stark reminder of the barbaric nature of the enemy that American-led forces face in Iraq.

Indeed, it puts into perspective the complaints about U.S. "atrocities" committed against prisoners at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib.

Frankly, complaints about degrading photos and alleged desecration of the Koran can't hold a candle to the savage abduction and execution-style murders of brave soldiers.

Those who have led the outcry over what they hysterically decry as U.S. "war crimes" in Iraq have a particular obligation to speak out against genuine atrocities of the kind committed by these terrorist insurgents.

Their failure to do so will only serve to confirm their actual motive: not to hold America to the highest moral standard, but to undermine the U.S. effort and ensure a Vietnam-style defeat in Iraq.

But then again, that this has been their desired outcome from the very beginning has long been evident to anyone who has listened to their rhetoric.

UPDATE: Bill Roggio raises this possibility.

The Iranians may be responsible the conducting the attack that resulted in the murder of five American soldiers in Karbala

Well, that would explain the why our troops need the authorization to kill Iranian operatives in Iraq.

Comments on Deafening Silence On Karbala From Geneva Fans

I will make a prediction that Pelosi, Kerry, Clinton et al point to this and say we brought it on ourselves and won't say a harsh word to their terrorist pals.

Only one group in the whole world had the acumen and balls to do this, and if they release the names of the five brave men executed, we'll better understand why. Taking the five men was an intel op, and once they got what they needed, they covered their tracks.

I'm afraid you lost me there.

The U.S. should make sure Iran pays a huge price for the deaths and for medling in Iraq, Iran doesn't even deserve the respect of being invaded. Just sink their boats, destroy nuclear plants, airfields, and know bases. The russians will want their money even if all their new toys are broken. This would lead to much more problems in the short term in the mid-east, but once Iran is crushed, syria will capitulate/cooperate and groups like hezbollah will lose funds and baking. You gotta cut the head of the dragon no mather how hard it is.

And even if the results in mid-east would become nice and peachy, nuclear Pakistan will become a problem eventually...then China. I guess the folks in western countries better harden the fuck up in a hurry.

Good luck all.
