We announce the good news to our Islamic nation that we executed God’s will and slaughtered the two crusader animals we had in captivity. And God has given our Emir, Abu Hamza al-Muhajer, the good fortune of carrying out the legitimate court’s command in person.

U.S.: Two missing soldiers found dead
[The Geneva and Hague Conventions do not apply to these Muslim extremists who do not abide by it themselves. We need to start feeding them, dead or alive, to the hogs.–Joe]
On a broader note; I would like to have some religious person explain how it is that when God wants something done, he needs the help of some third-world whack job to carry it out, rather than being a man and taking care of business himself.
And if we are to be either rewarded or punished for all eternity for our behavior on Earth, why should anyone need to “jump the gun” and start the punishment in advance, while we’re still here? Why would anyone care, since compared to all of eternity, the time we spend here is nothing?
In short, isn’t my punishment for being a human all of God’s business, and God’s alone? If you’re religious, why do you think it is your business to get between me and God?
Either you don’t think God’s capable of handling things, or you think you are God. The other possibility is you are just a murderous bitch, and you use the concept of “God’s wrath” to justify it. Which is it?
On a slight tangent, I have often wondered why in this war on terror that the troops have not been issued .223 cartridges with hollow-point bullets. Much of the fuss about the 5.56mm/.223 being an ineffective round seems to be related to the fact that the military is issued FMJ for compliance with the Geneva Conventions.
I’ve heard and read some things about hollowpoint match bullets being tried out in various quarters, but it seems to me that for urban fighting against non-uniformed terrorists, there’s nothing preventing us from making hollowpoints a separate duty round to be issued when appropriate (i.e., not on a battlefield per se).
