STOP CRITICIZING OUR SOLDIERS AND GO AFTER IRAQI TERRORISTS

I am totally fed up with the unbalanced reporting of the Iraq war. On one side, we have soldiers charged with Geneva Convention violations, such as decking an Iraqi prisoner who spit in their face. If it was me, I might have put a crowbar through his head.

These terrorists torture their own people, behead innocent non-combatants in grisly videos widely shown and kill innocent bystanders with car bombs. The latest outrage is the "murder" of Margaret Hassan, an aid worker of some 30 years in Iraq. Her reward was a bullet to the head, along with the public humiliation of pleading for her life. And she was married to an Iraqi.

Do these terrorists follow the Geneva Convention? I don't think so! Where is the outrage from the media over the unfair treatment given foreigners and the Iraqi people? Why don't our local media support our troops more?
