American contractors killed in Iraq - one burned alive

Four U.S. Contractors Killed in Iraq
BAGHDAD, Iraq - An angry mob of insurgents attacked a convoy of American contractors last month when they got lost in a town north of Baghdad, killing four and wounding two, the U.S. military said on Sunday.


The Telegraph reported that two of the contractors not killed in the initial attack were dragged alive from their vehicle, which had been badly shot up. They were forced to kneel in the road before being killed.

"Killing one of the men with a rifle round fired into the back of his head, they doused the other with petrol and set him alight," the paper reported.

"Barefoot children, yelping in delight, piled straw on to the screaming man's body to stoke the flames."

The crowd then "dragged their corpses through the street, chanting anti-U.S. slogans," the report said.

Well, that certainly puts this into perspective. Don't expect any outrage from the left, however. To them, it's more offensive to burn dead bodies of Taliban soldiers that had been left to rot than it is to burn Americans alive or drag their dead bodies through the streets. (Proof.)

UPDATE: Sorry. My bad. Canadian Cynic set me right. These contractors were working for that evil, sovereign nation-invading, oil-stealing Chimpy McBushhitler's Halliburton. That very important information means that no one should shed any tears for these people or the families they left behind. In fact, we should gloat happily over their deaths. Yes, CC's superior liberal, conservative-hating, Bush-bashing morality should be adopted by all! This is a new day! Thank you, CC!
