First Anniversary of "Screw Them"

Thanks to Michelle Malkin for reminding us of this anniversary.

After terrorists in Fallujah butchered, burned, dragged the charred bodies of 4 American contractors through the street, and hanged the bodies from a bridge, Democratic strategist Markos Moulitsos Zuniga of the liberal blog Daily Kos made this comment:

Every death should be on the front page ...

Let the people see what war is like. This isn't an Xbox game. There are real repercussions to Bush's folly.

That said, I feel nothing over the death of merceneries. They aren't in Iraq because of orders, or because they are there trying to help the people make Iraq a better place. They are there to wage war for profit. Screw them.

(If you follow the link to see the original comment, you may need to scroll down a ways, but it is there.)

"Screw them" is Zuniga's attitude toward 4 Americans who were brutally murdered, dismembered, burned, dragged, and hung. All because they worked for an American company in Iraq.

The response of Democrats is instructive. As Michelle Malkin observes:
Initially, Democrat advertisers condemned Kos's atrocious statements and withdrew their ads. But as Dean Barnett reported a few weeks ago in a Weekly Standard piece, Kos is now stronger than ever--and awash in daily traffic and ad revenue from the hate-America Left.

The far Left has such lovely people.
