The Missing Soldiers

posted by on June 4 at 12:56 PM

A group affiliated with al-Qaeda released a video today claiming that it killed the three American soldiers abducted after an attack last month. One of the missing soldiers was found floating in the Euphrates river, the other two are still missing. We’ve had 4,000 soldiers out looking for the missing soldiers, and at least a half a dozen have died during the search for the missing soldiers.

What’s to stop insurgents from plucking dead American soldiers from the wreckage of the next military vehicle they explode, or the next helicopter they bring down, or the next foot patrol they ambush, prompting a massive search that will lead to the deaths of more US soldiers?

Answer: Nothing, absolutly nothing.

Solution: Drug al-Qaeda with narcotics that would calm them down, and then go in for the kill. Like expoding cartridges over their strongholds. Something like that.

Solution: Leave. Tell media if they stay it's their problem.
