This is so sad. My heart goes out to his wife and three precious little girls. I have been very moved and saddened by this tragic event. They are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Marat....I hope you wind up like your namesake. As far as this occupation crap goes, I'm willing to bet given the conditions in baghdad now that his killer will be hunted down and detained or killed by local iraqi citizens who will relish the chance to remove another radical from their once not so bad city.

Marat is going into different threads to write anti American hate posts about our beloved soldiers just to get people upset. The more you argue back the happier you make him. He just wants attention. Sad and terribly pathetic the depths people will stoop to for attention... Poor pitiful Marat...

Topix,
Arent you going to remove Marat's post.
While we all have a freedom of speech, it is freedom until in infringes on someone else such as this case.
He is slandering the dead Soldier as a "Murderer" and a "thief,"
Failure to remove his post will result in a lawsuit on his behalf, and more than likely bad publicity and the closure of an Anti-American Site.

Excuse me. Hasn't the UK occupied countries in a questionable "bid" for help?? I seem to recall several European countries in Saudia and Iraq in the 90s.

You know nothing. You sit in your little UK neighborhood loving the freedoms the UK allows you to have. You lambast what you don't know. America is not there for oil. As you can tell by the prices being charged on the market. And to top that, the UK is there too.
You are a coward. You hide behind the protection and anonymity of the internet. All you want is Islam to rule the world. You rejoice in death. You think doing your duty is abandoning your family. You think if somebody doesn't share your thoughts, they deserve to die.
Well, lucky for the rest of the world, Allah has rubbed your back with his left hand and you will soon reside with him in hell.
May a pig eat your entrails.
ALLAHU IBLIS!

I was a career reservist and civilian law enforcement officer now completely retired. I served in Viet-Nam and Iraq and opposed both "adventures". I continued to serve my country and retired with honor.

I grieve for this soldier as I do all the others - In almost 40 years of service, I know 13 men and women who were killed in action or killed in the line of duty.

Grieve the loss, support the living, and honer the dead. A person might consider participating in peace demonstrations like I do.

Dad,

Please go back to the V.A. Mental Clinic and check yourself back in before you wonder off somewhere and die for nothing. You are sick and you still need help..coming on here and making a complete idiot out of yourself will not help your medical condition. I love you dad and I don't want anything to happen to you..so please go back to the Doctor and get the desperate help that you need so much.

Look... I'll drive you to the V.A. Hospital tomorrow so we can see the Doctor perhaps he can give you a stronger pill...and last Dad if anyone is sick around here..it's you..mentally. I love you Dad no matter what silly things you say on here.
