A "Bumper Sticker" for John Edwards

Mike Yon's report on what was a village near Baquba.

On 29 June, American and Iraqi soldiers were again fighting side-by-side as soldiers from Charley Company 1-12 CAV—led by Captain Clayton Combs—and Iraqi soldiers from the 5th IA, closed in on a village on the outskirts of Baqubah. The village had the apparent misfortune of being located near a main road—about 3.5 miles from FOB Warhorse—that al Qaeda liked to bomb. Al Qaeda had taken over the village.

...The village was abandoned. All the people were gone. But where?

EVERY single inhabitant, men, women, children, and donkeys, had been killed by AlQaeda.

The link has pictures which are graphic.

But it is a 'peaceful' religion...

*Sarcasm off*

Children! The whole village! It must have been sheer Hell in that town!
