First of all, any death of non-combatants is a tragedy... However, the President is doing a great job heading up the RPA offensive. Of course you have those (probably well intentioned) people out there that want to hype up the civilian casualty bull. Pakistan is lucky we have only been plinking targets in their "tribal area" and not launched a full up invasion. Some poeple need to get their priorities straight.

Sorry, I feel no pity for them.

My heart has been hardened by 9/11, our troops losses, and attacks around the world.

The only mistakes at Gitmo is that some of the bad guys have been let go. That has come back to haunt us in the way of embassey attacks.

Jennifer, given to chance they would torture and kill you. Have you forgotten Daniel Pearl?
