At Last! A Successful Hearts&Minds Win!

As one of our favorite blogs might say, "Actually, sadly, no." This ain't funny like them, though. Via Laura Rozen we learn of yet another instance of shooting unarmed captives. It's horrific. Yes, our soldiers are in a war zone. No, I don't understand all of what's going on over there, what it's like and what their orders are. No, I'm not saying our soldiers are evil. I am saying that what they are being asked to do - if indeed they are being ordered to do this sort of thing - is morally degrading to them, the rest of us, and our cause. And yeah, it's really not going to win any hearts and minds either.
