Update: Captain's Quaters has more coverage of the atrocities in Fallujah.
Yahoo! News - US marines find underground prison, bodies in Fallujah:
"FALLUJAH, Iraq (AFP) - US marines uncovered an underground prison in Fallujah containing at least two bodies and two emaciated brothers who were still alive"
What is to be gained by capturing and torturing two mentally retarded brothers? What great social cause is being advanced? What unimaginable wrong has been done that this attones for?
Can there be any question what we are dealing with? These are not enemy combatants, they are not insurgents, at this point they fail to rise even to the lofty level of terrorist. They are evil incarnate. There can be no alternate course but complete and total victory. No peace can be reached with such a beast, no armistice that could be respected. They must be hunted down and exterminated. Anything less would be to cower in the face of evil.
For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world's rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore, put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand.
Stand Tall guys. If I could be, I'd still be there, right beside you. We're behind you all the way. God Speed.
