Sites, what a low form of life you have shown yourself to be. By your actions you are not worthy to even sit in the company of these great Marines that are protecting your sorry ass all the while you are cutting them down with the help of the Old Media in this country. I'd say your sorry life wouldn't be worth much if I were to be in your company on a dark night, but these Marines are good men and you being the coward that you are, you are banking on that and will likely continue to take your little camera and keep right on doing your dirty work. I haven't been able to watch any beheading videos, but I think I could watch yours.

Mark, your comments are well stated and have much validity, but i stand by if our boys need to clip a 1000 half dead terrorist's (and that is what they are, not politically correct insurgents)to save the life of 1 marine so be it. This is more than just a war in the usual sense. This is a war for our very survival of our way of life. If anyone doubts this to be the case do your homework in the history books. Islam has always been and always be conversion by the sword. Not only historically, but commanded to do so in their Koran. They are not a peaceful people and all who do not agree are subject to death. If these cave people get their hands on WMD they will not hesitate to use them. They will not only destroy our way of life, but they have also shown their willingness to cut their own lives short to achieve their goals. Like the saying goes "let's look at the record" So Mark you see, in this conflict it is not about being above them or stooping to their level. Because what is at stake it is simplly about WINNING!!! This we must win whatever the cost. This is not Viet Nam, yes they are still communist and the atrocities of that regime is nothing less than dispicable, but they can do us little to no harm. These muslims will kill us all, er go we can not allow the media and the rest of these seditious lefties hurt our efforts to win Semper Fi my devil dog brothers

Dear Mr. Sites,



Is fame so much more important to you than America's soldiers and America's security? Can you not defend America, and let justice prevail before seeking your own fame? PLEASE.......give time for military issues to be researched before seeking your 'golden notch' of photographers' notoriety in the 'big world'.



You may be against war, but was the soldier not defending you while you take those photographs? He probably even saved your life during that seemingly 'inappropriate' shooting this week. Those who are shot by our soldiers are our enemies; yes, even of you, the anti-war photographer. They don't care what you do. In fact, they will shoot you, too. Were they not attacking you before you went into the mosque?



Our soldiers are fighting for our country, America. We are aware they make mistakes, and some are deadly. However, just prudence must prevail before mock judgement. Real Americans are thankful for the service our soldiers provide. After all, if it wasn't for our soldiers there would be no freedom of press for your photographs.



Think about it and decide who you want to represent with your 'prize' photographs........a free and secure America or its enemies. Whichever choice, i hope the fame you receive was worth it.


Proud American

To Kevin Sites, you are a worthless American hating dirt bag!!!!! If you still have the balls to go out with my Marines You better watch your own ass because they won't do it for you this time!!! You are truly human debris!!!!

Bill: First of all youre right about him not being charged with murder, I confused him for a second, the military is only conducting a probe as of now, my error. Secondly, I dont understand what relevance how the enemy acts has on how we should act. We are a million miles above them and that should stay that way. We are respected as not being barbarians, as being respectful of human dignity and as having compassion. These should hold still no matter what. Some of the Iraqis (its important to note that its some, not all) are indeed barbarians have done truly barbaric things. BUT if we truly are better than them we wont stoop to any lower level because of it. Ive never grasped why people keep bringing it up in arguments. Something like "well they burned some of our people alive," often used as a refute to criticism of some American wrong-doing. Or worse still when they assume the person doing the criticizing isnt at all offended or dismayed by the Iraq wrong doing. I personally love, not hate, the fact that the smallest American soldiers' wrong-doing is highlighted and criticized to the exten that it is, because that serves to maintain that standard. I like how something small and innocent, like an American soldier accidentally shooting an Iraqi at a checkpoint or whatever gets as much press and outrage directed towards it as Iraqi's doing something very much worse, like burning and hanging Americans. This is all very productive, actually, no matter how hard it is to swallow at the time. We should be proud of how much better we are than them, not proud at how much better we still are than them when we do something wrong. Do you know what I mean?

Thx Judy.

For all who read this board and care about our military, I implore you to writr to the president, the vice president and the DOD. This is basically what I wrote to them: I asked for them to take this to the people. During the campaign they promised to stand by our troops, well now it is time. This Brave Young Marine needs them to stand by him so he is not railroaded due to some political nonsense. The "old media" want a public war about these things, the administration are the only one's that can bring it to them. I also mentioned the tactics these barbarians are using to kill our marines (see my previous post). Add to it what you like, but please write them at president@whitehouse.gov and vice.president@whitehouse.gov. You can fax them at 1-202-456-2461 or call at 1-202-456-1111. However you contact them does not matter, but our military puts it all on the line for us the least we can do is bombard the whitehouse and DOD to put it on the line for them. Thw administration can not lose on this because we the people will back them over those scoundrels in the media. Pass it to your friends and family and ask them to do the same.

Thx Bill

AirCavRick, AMEN BROTHER!!! Ours is the only military ever used as a liberating force. think about that. people who create web sites like this one undoubtedly have the right to do so, but tend to forget that the military that they hate, and are constantly trying to undermine is the very same organization that protects their right to free speach. i'm sure that we can all agree that war is awful, but at times it is a necessary evil and will never go away. we are fortunate enough to live in this incredible country and like it or not our military is part of what makes us great. if you dont like this country then get out, we don't need you (i'm still waiting for alec baldwin to move to canada as he promised he would if Bush was elected prior to the 2000 elections) stop your bullshit attempts to weaken this country's resolve to win this war we're in, like your president said, if you're not with us, you're with the terrorists.

by the way, i find it amusing that a majority of the posts here are totally against your site......wake up, open your eyes and realize that most of America does not agree with you or your views on our military. thank god there is a republican in the white house.

You Maggot you have just reforced the enemy and given a 1000 more islamo facists the desire to stap exposives to themselves and kill and maim our troops and inocent bystanders. You might think different if one of them were hacking off your head!

Hey Mark

Are you naieve or just acting? This is a war with barbarians who shoot our troops under the white flag of surrender, did this traitor Sites report that, they booby trap the dead and wounded that kill our marines, where are the pictures of those from Mr Sites, or the using of houses of worship as their fortress or an ambulance and so on. Where is his pictures and reporting of that. His report was to establish 1 thing and that is our teoops are the bad guys.

When was this marine charged with murder? Wishful thinking? certainly it is the hope of this seditious bastard Sites.

The media has been in bed with the enemy since Viet Nam. The VC has made no bones about it, that the american media gave them the incentive to hang on until the public lost its will to fight. These are the same reporters from that era now retiring and their minions like Sites are taking over.

I like my freedom and I want the same for my children. If you enjoy freedom of speech and the press Thank a Soldier not these selfish dopes without ethics or loyalty

I am reading these posts, and reading about what Sikes stupidly did, as I listen to "Last Letters Home" written by our military to their families. (It is on TV right now) The families are reading these letters. with tears in my eyes for our military, and their families -- and anger in my heart because of the likes of Sikes -- I hope something is done about having a left-wing-anti-war activist following our beloved military around. Get them out. Now. Let our military do their jobs. When do we stop sympathizing for the enemy??? They want all of us dead, even you, Mr. Sikes.

Shame, Shame Shame on you. While you are over-paid by your elitist friends in high places, to take pic's with your toy cameras, these young brave men are Under Paid to protect the likes of you and your sorry-ass friends way of life with Real weapons. Get the Fuck out of their way and leave them to their honorable jobs.

I know that video is suppose to make Americans think our troops are doing bad things in Iraq. Personally, I worry more about them taking too many chances trying to be politically correct. The "people" they are facing take joy in beheading people. If the wounded man was pretending to be dead, it is reasonable to assume he would have killed anyone and everyone there if given a chance. Early in the war coverage I remember hearing that some terrorists surrendered only to blow themselves up. Members of the military are my heros. I am daily impressed and amazed by what they do. If any of them cross the line and do anything criminal, I have faith the military will take appropriate action but I will not judge their actions by some video I see in the comfort of my own home.



Bad things happen in war that's why we try to avoid it. If Mr. Sites had an agenda with his video and this was the worst thing he saw I bet he's disappointed.

The American and other coalition forces have just liberated 50 million people in Iraq and Afghanistan. In WWI we saved Europes bacon because they were unable to attend to their own matters. We did the same thing in WWII. In Korea, we saved the south from Communism and helped establish one of the most dynamic economies on the freaking planet. We valiantly attempted to liberate the South Vietnamese but were prevented from doing so by a flip-flopping American government. (That country is STILL Communist to this day.) We liberated Grenada from other Communist thugs, saved millions in Bosnia & Kosovo. In our 228 years of freedom, we have become known as a "nation of liberators." Try attending a naturalization ceremony in your nearest big city some time. Not a bad reputation and track record, if you ask me.

mr. sites, it is time got another kind of job. your brain is not funtioning well. why do those things to the young men who are defending your country. nbc should be ashamed that you even work for them

Judy: Well the military did charge the soldier in the video and 2 others with murder, so I assumed something was legally amiss. What it is to international law, I dont know. But I see your point and I must reiterate that if I was in his situation I think I'd do the same thing. I dont see how I would stop myself. It'd be very difficult to have enough care and sympathy for a man that just tried to kill you and your peers, or who might have already. Even more so, due to the untraditonal nature of their methods and attacks. I mean thatd, it'd be easier to sympathsize with the enemey in a fairly fought and clearly defined war. When I initially saw the news I thought something along the lines of, "oh well, thats war." I knew he'd be charged but I didnt know so many people would take such huge offense to that and be so senseless to the person who exposed it. Again, I cant help but see the "left vs. right", "us vs. them" thing going on. But, these days, what isnt

Mark (mmmmark@gmail.com) advances arguments born of thought processes which, I believe, resemble those of others before him who could so convolute rational sensibility as to support Adolf Hitler during the very moments he was in the full throat process of exterminating 6 million human lives. That so many are driven to intemperate and extreme ad hominum assaults upon Sites is regrettable, but what could possibly be expected?



Mark's bizarre reasoning and evident sense of values undermine the basic decency of our race. I would rather live with a thousand who can only find voice to hurl epithets at Sites than one, such as Mark, who sees and understands nothing.

Oh, the poor terrorists, they have families too! They have morals to boot. Anyone that isn't, doesn't convert to Islam (read...submit) is an infidel worthy of death. Islam is a "religion" of death and destruction since its inception. History proves it. Those who believe this "religion" promotes peace are SILENT on what their fellow beleivers are doing. IMHO, this PROVES they are silently rooting for their brothers beheading the "infidels".



Terrorists are not cosignatories of the Geneva convention and do not abide by its mandates. However, Kevin Sites and his ilk expects coliation troops to abide by it.



Bing anti self defense is unnatural. Although it appears to be a nobel cause, it is a smoke screen for one word...coward. Even Mohandas Gandhi had courage and would not hesitate to use violence as he has stated. "I do believe that where there is a choice only between cowardice and violence I would advise violence."



It is fourtnate for Sites and his ilk there have been millions who had the courage and common sense to know the difference between liberating a nation or allowing a despot to rule. Every normal person on the planet yearns for the right of self determination.



Sites and his Marxist cultural ideologically inclined cohorts have a long way to go before they understand the meaning of freedom. They are an ememy to liberty, all it stands for and those who cherish it.

Sorry, Mark. This Marine did nothing wrong. The Geneva Convention rules do Not apply to combatants who do not wear a uniform and hide out in a Mosque. Your argument assumes moral equivalence, and there is none here. The reason people get "hysterical", as you say, is because the press treats the Abu Graib humiliations as if it were the moral equivalent (ie just as bad as) the beheadings and other atrocities.
