Beheading Revisited Again

Previously I posted on beheading a few times, especially here and here.

Today on Wonkette I found out about some recent beheading, wherein a presumably Christian soldier from Wasilla, Alaska, cut the head off an unarmed civilian Afghani and posed for pictures with the dead guy’s head. Al Jazeera English story here.

Two US army soldiers allegedly involved in a 12-man “kill team”accused of murdering Afghan civilians for sport have been shown in leaked photographs posing with one of their victims.

Specialist Jeremy Morlock and Private Andrew Holmes are shown holding up the head of a man identified by Germany’s Der Spiegel newspaper as Gul Mudin, an unarmed Afghan they are accused of killing on January 15, 2010.

I’m guessing their reasoning was something along the lines of, “But they did it first!”

  1. Just can’t understand who gave the US military the right to invade Afghanistan?
    This poor civillian was murdered just because we -humans- are not capable of stopping these predators from their hunt, I mean how in the hell can anyone justify these murders? All and ALL civilians have the right to be judged on in a court, not by these barbarians.
    US government is using the same argument to justify the interference in other countries’ internal policy!
    Anyway, preventing such crimes is one of our missions as believers in humanity and justice.
    Thank you Snarla.

  2. Come on, quit! We invaded Afghanistan to catch Osama bin Laden! Oh, but then let him slip into Pakistan so that we could… errr, uh, “liberate” Pakistan from the Taliban. Don’t worry, we can afford these trillion dollar wars, our deficit is only 82 trillion dollars….
