Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    Flashback to 2002

    An article in the Ithica Journal, published on the 25th May 2002 focussed on US soldiers preparing for their second mission at Bagram, Afghanistan. Army Private Matt Guckenheimer was interviewed earlier that year and spoke frankly about orders given to them. Matt stated "We were told there were no friendly forces," said Guckenheimer, an assistant gunner with the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum. "If there was anybody there, they were the enemy. We were told specifically that if there were women and children to kill them." It seems perverse to me that orders were given to kill women and children. And I am wondering just how many women and children in Fallujah (and indeed the rest of Iraq) have been killed for getting in the way.
