.._if_ their GI believe _they_ are in the _right_ side, and the Yankee 
GI's carry on like in Iraq, _agreed_.  Very good odds now.

.."payback" is a war crime.  Please report this story-teller to the FBI,
hopefully he is just a skilled wannabe, but he _may_ have told you the
truth, and should in that case be able to help enforce the 4 Geneva
Conventions as it is incorporated into US law.

..many were gunned down by "their own" for "treason" by Saddam's guys. 
_Also_ a war crime where the perpetrators should hang.

..agreed, the problem is, "trying" is not good enough.  You have to
_convince_ and with authority.  Bush _has_ convinced the Muslims 
he is on a crusade against Islam and the Arabs for oil.  And, they 
know their enemy has the nukes, so being right doesn't help them 
that much.

.._no_ amount of candy and glass pearls will change that.

..so, unless you agree Arabs and Muslims should be treated like the 
Jews in Auschwitz, you and your country has a job to do.  

..you say you were impressed by some "payback" war crime stories.  
I ask _you_ to help the FBI or the military equivalent of it,
these war crime allegations in these stories.  Your _potential_ failure 
to help the GI's in Afghanistan and Iraq by helping weed out US war 
criminals, will only help al-Quaeda's propaganda fuel Arab and 
Muslim belief you're exterminating them to pillage their oil fields.  
Your call.

..I agree that will be well deserved, considering the way "Europeans"
promote war crime thru factual endorsement and subversion.  
And I _hate_ being right.

  Scenarios always come in sets of three: 
  best case, worst case, and just in case.
