"He was so happy to finally get a chance to do his part," Mr. Sweet said.

I'll bet he was worried that there wouldn't be enough Iraqis left for him to murder, torture or abuse. Doing "his part" in the destruction of a country never causing the U.S. harm didn't quite turn out right did it?
The family should check the bits they put in the crate to make sure no dead dogs were used to make up the weight.

Emily..Why am I not surprised.

The sad part of his whole response was directed to a young man who served his Country and sacraficed his life for others. This "Honest John " hides behind a computer screen and probably has never done a good act in his whole life.

No, Grace 59, this dead grunt did not serve his country in any way. Murdering innocent people made him and his good buddies despised as by all decent folk all over the world.
Neither did he sacrifice his life for others. His life was justifiably snuffed out by Iraqi patriots who don't appreciate their country being illegally occupied or their families murdered or tortured.
The one good act I have done in my life is to bring enlightenment and knowledge to the pig-ignorant warmongers, like yourself, who relish seeing young men die for oil greed.

Honest John: I personally believe the war in Iraq to be a big mistake, and the sooner the US gets every American soldier out of that quagmire, the better.

Having said that? It's obvious to me that you are misguided, heartless and totally delusional. There is no point arguing with fanatics such as yourself. But know this. Torture and murder does indeed happen in Iraq. But it's not the Americans who are doing it. Maybe it's best that you read my preceding words over a few times, just to be certain that you've absorbed them. And when finished? Please crawl back under the rock from which you emerged.

My sincere condolences to the Sweet family. God Bless.

Makes you wonder how many of those "patriots" were members of the Iraqi Army that occupied Kuwait or Iran. Of course, if they had never done that, there wouldn't be a coalition army in Iraq today.

Gotta love it.
