Rooters does its usual smashing job on the Marine who shot a wounded Iraqi.
Now the article finishes with the usual:
Viewers said images, which Arab televisions aired repeatedly of a Marine killing a severely injured Iraqi, fueled growing hatred against America and helped create more 'terrorists.'Well go look at the photos yourself. Dying alone on the floor of a dusty mosque at the hands of an American soldier does not look like a big recruiting tool to me. But, hell, I wouldn't be a suicide bomber either so what do I know?
This Rooters article has a more even handed bit.
In Saudi Arabia -- the birthplace of Islam and of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden (news - web sites), whose group carried out bombings in the country -- residents said insurgents were to blame for taking their battle into mosques.Then of course they go on with more ravings from outraged fascists.
"If I was in the U.S. soldier's place I would have killed all the insurgents because they are mercenaries," said Saudi Zaher al-Saleh, a 32-year-old teacher. "They have turned the mosques into battlefields and they're killing civilians."
