Il faut quitter

Near-miss for ABC News anchor [and a bunch of soldiers] in Iraq

NEW YORK - ABC news anchor Chris Cuomo was unhurt Tuesday after the convoy of military police he was riding with in Iraq was struck by a roadside bomb.

Some of the soldiers suffered minor injuries in the attack, ABC said. The convoy of four heavily armored Humvees was going to check a report of a burning vehicle in northwest Baghdad when booby-trapped bodies left by the side of the road exploded.

The vehicles returned to safety following a small arms battle, and Cuomo reported on the attack on "Good Morning America," where he is the news anchor. (continued)

Gross, nasty, disrespectful. Who does that?! NOT people fighting for their deity. People without souls. I'm all done with this. It's time to leave.

That's disgusting, and a new level of sick. Or is it? Maybe that's just war? I dunno. Either way, it's reprehensible.

Oh Poppy, I wish Christians could say that they were above such cruelties as well, sadly, I know they are not.... sigh


Yeah, we shouldn't have gone there in the first place; these stories get worse and worse by the day. :(

Oh, I don't want to be misinterpretted. I am very accepting of diversity of religion and in that acceptance I know that all people have the capability of misusing their religion (or lack thereof) as a reason to kill.

I am well versed in the history of religion to know that Christians are capable of any completely horrible act that any other religious group is.

It's one thing to think about hurting others, and then there is acting upon those thoughts. Could we all please try to use our words, our reasoning, our compromise?

I am not defending US actions in this matter. I don't defend anyone's actions in this matter.
