Just an Innocent Observation

A co-worker and I were talking about the Marine shooting incident and he reminded me of an old WWI story I had forgotten about...

But first...let's put things in perspective:

Marines fight insurgents.

Insurgents play dead, blow up Marines.

One Marine takes no chance, shoots wounded insurgent.

Liberals and MSM release bowels, cry war crime.

Now...ponder this little tidbit:

Henry Tandey, a British infantryman, finds a wounded enemy soldier.

Tandey, being an honorable man, spares the life of his wounded enemy.

Wounded enemy soldier recovers, survives WWI.

The soldier returns home...
Takes over his country...
Invades Poland...
Plunges the world into a devestating war...
Thanks Henry Tandey by bombing Britain relentlessly...
Kills millions of Jews...

So much for a noble British soldier's good intentions.

I'm slowly coming under the impression that this young Marine has done us all a big favor...maybe I'm over-generalizing...but then again...

I think the life and times of Saddam should be a good enough example for your scenario.
Every one missed, another potential Arafat or Zarqawi.
The citizens of Fallujah were forwarned.
Stupid citizens. City of moshed Mosques now.
You know what else? If we're the infidels, Allah sure must be pissed at those insurgents.
Semper Fi, on to Mosul, boys.

Nits make lice or another way to look at it is if you want to eliminate the fleas you not only have to kill them but their eggs too. That Marine eliminated a future problem that was beyond rehabilitation, remember he had weeks to leave Fallujah and chose to stay, Allah beckoned, a Marine obliged. God Bless our troops.
