You've probably heard about the alleged burning of dead bodies of Taliban terrorists by U.S. soldiers.
It's also been alleged that while the bodies were burning, the American soldiers were taunting Taliban terrorists nearby, telling them to "come out and fight." There seems to be a lot of concern and outrage among Muslims over the alleged incident. They're calling the burning "desecration of the dead."
Afghan President Hamid Karzai publicly condemned the alleged burning but also said that mistakes happen in war and reminded Afghans that "(American) soldiers have shed their blood in our country." The video was supposedly taken by a freelance journalist named Stephen Dupont who told the Associated Press that he was embedded with the U.S. Army's 173rd Airborne Brigade, and said the burnings occurred on Oct. 1, 2005. The video tape doesn't really show bodies being burned; all you see is a fire.

If it happened, it shouldn't have. But, that's very easy for us to say when we're sitting in the comfort and safety of our living rooms and watching the war on television.

But if it did happen, so what?

Nicholas Berg's body was desecrated when he was beheaded by Muslim terrorists. Daniel Pearl's body was desecrated when he was also beheaded by Muslim terrorists. The bodies of the four Blackwater employees were desecrated when they were burned by Muslim terrorists in Fallujah, Iraq while Iraqis danced in celebration. The burning bodies of the innocents in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 were desecrated also, while Palestinians danced in the streets in celebration while the fires still raged at ground zero.

War is hell, and hellish things happen in war.

If the Taliban terrorists bodies were indeed burned, all I can say is: Excuse me, my give a damn's busted.
