Murtha: "Worse Than Abu Ghraib"

A group of U.S. Marines is under investigation for the possible slaughter of two dozen Iraqi civilians in the city of Haditha. (The Guardian) “In the Marine Corps, they are quietly calling it their My Lai, the massacre of hundreds of villagers in 1968 that became a symbol for American brutality in the Vietnam War. In this generation's war, the village is Haditha, north-west of Baghdad, where US marines killed two dozen Iraqi civilians, including 11 women and children.

In what is being viewed as the gravest allegation to date of war crimes in Iraq, a military investigation is expected to present findings in Baghdad next week that a small group of troops shot dead 24 unarmed Iraqi civilians in the town last November 19.”…This was a massacre," said John Sifton of Human Rights Watch. "If these allegations are borne out, this will be the most serious war crime that has taken place in Iraq."
[Notice that little slip from the Guardian and the Human rights group. So are they saying that the terrorist-insurgents, who kill dozens of innocent people nearly everyday, are not committing war crimes? And if so, doesn’t that mean they have solidified the argument that terrorists do not have the luxury of Geneva Convention protections. Because if the human rights community doesn’t consider terrorists to be war criminals then their argument for them to have Geneva protections is destroyed.] –Damn I’m good-

If this story is true then there is no question these individuals should be prosecuted for their war crimes and the murder of the 24 civilians. However, I’m going to focus on what this means politically and how it will be used.

This incident is the best news in three years for the Democratic Party and count on them to exploit it. This story will be used in two ways by the media and the political left in this country and in Europe. As you can obviously see, in the first sentence of the Guardian article that I posted, the comparison to the My Lai massacre is in full force. And the Guardian blatantly lied to get a chance to make that comparison. They said, “The Marine Corp is quietly calling it their My Lai”. But that’s not true; the Guardian just made that up. And the reason they, and others, are going to use the My Lai Massacre comparison, is to further their own efforts to make Iraq the new Vietnam. That has been the media’s goal since day one; in fact the MSM and some Democrats like Ted Kennedy called Afghanistan a quagmire and called it the next Vietnam. So, in the following weeks, look for the My Lai reference to be used to describe the incident in Iraq.

The second way this story will be used is, of course, to attack President Bush. The attacks began last week when John Murtha claimed these Marines killed the innocent people in Haditha because of stress that goes all the way to the top (meaning it’s Bush’s fault for not cutting and running). Here’s the
video of the “Hardball” interview in which Murtha used these alleged killings to push his immediate withdrawal agenda. He also lied and claimed this incident “should’ve been investigated” when it has been under investigation since it took place. And this morning, on ABC's "This Week", Representative Murtha called US Marines “cold blooded” killers and said Haditha is "worse than Abu Ghraib."

However, it’s my hope that we, as a country, can come together and provide each other support in our time of war. And it is my hope the opposition party will not use this horrible action as a launching ground to push their desperate agenda. But since that is unlikely to happen; I will leave my Democratic friends with this quote: “Yes, yes, I committed the same kind of atrocities as thousands of other soldiers have committed in that I took part in shootings in free fire zones. I conducted harassment and interdiction fire. I used 50 calibre machine guns… which were our only weapon against people. I took part in search and destroy missions, in the burning of villages. All of this is contrary to the laws of warfare, all of this is contrary to the Geneva Conventions." –John Kerry-
