Re: US Soldiers in St. Louis Admit to Rape and Murder in Iraq

Congrats, Umar! As I said earlier: "It may have just been bragging, but, even if it's just that, it goes to show that the U$ military does not always create the most honorable of folk, and we shouldn't unconditionally "support our troops," even though we must "bring [all of] them home."

As far as the latest "Anonymous" comment: "Thank goodness that you all are in the minority."

WE ARE NOT IN THE MINORITY BEFORE THE WAR (WORLDWIDE), WE ARE NOT IN THE MINORITY IN IRAQ,

Secret MoD poll: Iraqis support attacks on British troops
By Sean Rayment, News-Telegraph Defence Correspondent 10/23/2005
www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml

The poll, undertaken for the Ministry of Defence and seen by The Sunday Telegraph, was conducted by an Iraqi university research team that, for security reasons, was not told the data it compiled would be used by coalition forces.

It reveals:
* 45% of Iraqis believe attacks against British and American troops are justified (up to 65% in British-patrolled Maysan province, down to 25% in Basra);
* 82% are "strongly opposed" to the presence of coalition troops;
* less than 1% of the population believes coalition forces are responsible for any improvement in security;
* 67% of Iraqis feel less secure because of the occupation;
* 72% do not have confidence in the multi-national forces.
* 71% rarely get safe clean water
* 47% never have enough electricity
* 70% say their sewerage system rarely works
* 40% of southern Iraqis are unemployed.

AND WE ARE NO LONGER IN THE MINORITY IN THE US:
