Why these murders when US troops are withdrawing? Would Iraqis do this to keep US troops in Iraq? Hell no. Whoever does this is someone who makes money from US troops in Iraq, like war profiteers. That's who does these things. War profiteerrs should be hung by the neck until they are dead.

They weren't. Not one bit. Sure, there are a few genuinely brave Iraqis, but we have either screwed them over by refusing their families visas or otherwise turned our backs to them.
