50 Iraqi soldiers were ambushed and murdered execution style. While the murders are of course the most disturbing part of the story WHAT THE FUDGE IS THIS ABOUT:
The bodies of about 50 unarmed Iraqi soldiers - many killed execution style with gunshots to the back of the head - were found on a remote road in eastern Iraq, victims of an ambush as they were heading home on leave after basic training... (emphasis added)

Yeah, I know when our soldiers are on their way home from basic training they do not carry weapons. BUT this kind of thing is just begging for an attack in Iraq... UNARMED?! UNARMED?! Who is running this show over there? Seriously, this is a huge mistake, in my book. These soldiers are exactly the types the thugs want to murder and kill, to influence others to not join the forces. FIFTY soldiers just coming from basic training UNARMED - in IRAQ?! B**L S**T.
"There was probably collusion among the soldiers or other groups. Otherwise, the gunmen would not have gotten the information about the soldiers' departure from their training camp and that they were unarmed," he said.
"In the future we will try to be more careful when the soldiers leave their camps.
We will provide them with protected cars that can escort them home."

Oh, you think there was collusion? You don't say. Thanks for trying to calm down the fears with what will happen in the future. Does not help these 50 soldiers now or the recruitment efforts. This Whoever is in charge of this should be CANNED immediately. This statement directly recognizes these soldiers would most certainly still be alive had them been armed. IDIOTS!
