This is what we get for trying to help

Amazing, another innocent American slaughtered. How many do we need to lose before we just wipe out the whole country of Iraq? They hate us because they are jealous of our wealth and freedoms and of course, don’t forget, we are infidels. They will take our monetary help whenever we are stupid enough to give it and we will still continue to give these animals help in spite of their belief that no man, woman or child in the United States is deserving of respect or mercy.

We have no right paying Iraqi prisoners for the abuse some few military personnel chose to perform on a boring day. It may have been wrong and I don’t condone their behavior but we are not, as taxpayers, responsible for forking over more money again for someone else’s bad hair day. No way would our American civilian survivors and families receive monetary benefits from the abuse of the Iraqi people, not to mention we have so few hostages that come back home in one piece. I use to see the good in everyone but now I see these people as taking money from our right hand while slicing off our heads with the left. And don’t forget their children are taught very young to hate us, eat our food, take our money, but hate us enough to kill someday. Forget it, it’s a savage country and there is no hope for them.
