Yesterday news came out that three American soldiers were missing in Iraq. The assumption, of course, is that they have been captured and have been/will be murdered by their captors. That is sad news, yet what makes me angry is the following comment on MSNBC this morning.. "The military said the patrol was attacked before dawn west of the town of Mahmudiya in the Sunni "triangle of death", the same area where two U.S. soldiers were abducted by al Qaeda insurgents last year before their mutilated bodies were found." -from MSNBC.com The "same area"? If this is true, and I have no reason to believe it is not, then this latest tragedy is a result of the failure of George W Bush. Last year when those soldiers were murdered I said that Bush should have used massive military force on that town, that he should have order an operation that would make "shock and awe" look like a cake walk. In short, he should have had that town/area flattened. Yet, he did not. Just like Bill Clinton before him, George W Bush let the people who committed those crimes go free. He allowed the people who knew who committed those crimes, and failed to turn them in asap, go free. That was a major mistake. This time I hope, and pray, that Bush does not repeat the same mistake. It is time for those people to learn the hard lesson; you don't mess with the United States Military. I am tired of our military looking weak.
