How does Al Qaeda view the family?
Michael Yon is a reporter in Iraq who is working independently of any news agency. He is self-funded and is beholding to nobody. His reporting on the war in Iraq is very stark, very real and very disturbing.
This recent story deals with a small village in Iraq where it appears Al Qaeda moved in to take over the area and moved everyone else out…with bullets to the back of the head. They butchered every living thing in the village…men, women, children, livestock. Why? Just because.
A disturbing passage from this write-up:
Soldiers from 5th IA said al Qaeda had cut the heads off the children. Had al Qaeda murdered the children in front of their parents? Maybe it had been the other way around: maybe they had murdered the parents in front of the children. Maybe they had forced the father to dig the graves of his children.
It appears that this type of thing is not new. It happens all over Iraq. Can anyone doubt that these people are animals who should be hunted down like vermin?
