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.

What ridiculous hysteria. Flooding his guestbook with blood-thirsty and irrational bullshit accomplishes what exactly? It stikes me that nobody, here at least, complains or is angry that the soldier did something he, in a legal sense, should not have done. On a moral level, I probably would have done it too and its hard to take into account what it's like to keep oneself in check in the heat of battle, but regardless you do keep yourself in check and if you dont you should be punished. It's justice, plain and simple. You're mad at Sites for what? Exposing a wrong-doing? The fact of the matter is that this is something that exists, that really happened, and shouldnt have happened. He didnt lie, cheat, or make something up. Obviously, it's naive to think this footages release wasnt politically motivated and I fully understand that, but thats what I think a lot of you are actually mad over. Somebody from "their" side is trying to hurt something that is often attributed to our "side." Solution? "I hope you die, you commie!" Frankly, it's embarrassing watching people act this way. It's so primative. Look, We're all in favour of our military at times of war and don't want to see them fail or be hurt but its also our duty to serve as the checks and as the balances. Im tired of people acting like we shouldnt. In my mind thats how Sites should be seen and, comparably, how the people who exposed Abu Ghraib should be seen: as the checks and the balances. Much has been made of this and it's hardly worth repeating, but it's much more patriotic to dissent than it is to follow. Thats our role. In the meantime, calm the fuck down. I get very upset over many things but never act this way. Theres no excuse for it

You anti-war fags are bleeding hearts. Bleed on and go home to San Francisco, you'll be loved and cared for there. Leave the killing of your would be murderers to real men, US Marines.



These blodd thirsty cannibals saw peoples heads off and you and the other pink panty waists cry because we handcuff, cover they eyes and kill them if a war torn skittish Marine makes a mistake. Go take pictures of your dainty fag friends and leave the trigger pulling to sane people. Better yet, let me kick your ass so I could feel better.

You liberal piece of dogshit. You deserve to be the next victim of beheading over there. I hope the marines hand-deliver your sorry ass to Zarqawi and we get to see you beg for your life like the other hostages. Speaking of which, its quite ironic that we have not seen any of the war crimes committed against US forces in your works. You are johnny on the goddamn spot when you get a chance to crucify a marine for shooting a terrorist that is faking being dead so he can potentially shoot a marine.



There is a special place in hell for people like you.

Sites, I hope one of the terrorists captures you and you get to see the futility of trying to "care" about these animals while they are sawing your head off.



You disgust me. You are trying to profit off the hard work of those marines. You will be cursed until the day you die. Mark my words on that.



I shit on you and everything you stand for!

Your grotequely distorted sense of right and wrong, of good and evil, has driven you to moral hallucinations which ,if they achieve anything at all, do so to the ultimate detriment of your countrymen and of rectitude and right reason. I do not believe that it should be possible for decent people to forgive you.



As was said of a different Judas, it would have been better if you had never been born.

Sir, have you stopped to think of the implications of your actions on those brave U.S. men and women fighting the thugs of this morbid world?

If people like you had been filming the Normandy landing and been allowed to show it to the folks back home, we might have lost our resolve, and maybe even the war (ala Vietnam). BRING BACK CENSORSHIP OF THE PRESS IN WARTIME! (Reagan kept the press out of Grenada until it was all over).

Tell me, will your camera be filming or snapping pictures when a nuclear cloud blows over the US? It's kill or be killed. When the hell are you jokers going to learn this? Why didn't more of you get out and vote for me? Jerks!

I have such pity for people such as yourself that have no understanding of what freedom is all about. What this soldier did was more then honorable, he in effect saved all those around him as well as his self. In case you dont understand where you are let me remind you. This is war and war you kill you kill them all otherwise you live to have them try to kill you again on another d

I am a 66 year old retiree here in the great state of North Carolina. Mine has not always been a life of privilage, however, I was taught early in life to value life and respect those who have sacrificed their lifes to provide me and my family the freedoms I have enjoyed my 66 years. Men in uniform have bled and died to allow a safe haven for our way of life here in this great country. Each morning my countrymen go out to work their farms here in NC. Some are my friends and I visit them regularly. Most are poultry growers (chickens & turkeys). They work hard in heat and not a little putride odor. Not far from our area other young men learn the trade of soldiership (Ft Bragg /Camp Le Junne) in the heat . "God Bless um!" Seems to me you owe that young marine and those like him plenty. After seeing your video, and hearing of your exployts with your film talents, I'm reminded of my many trips to the poultry farms. Your works annoy me just like the residue on my shoes " Chicken-Shit"

It's no surprise you work for NBC. Home of Jacque Lauer and Katie Cairo. You people SUCK.

Some marine should give you a lead aspirin, and put you out of your misery. I would not PISS in your ear if your brains were on fire.

Hope you’re happy. This whole sorry means nothing. The Marine will be found in the right. Assholes like you will always be here always. Brave marines like the man you have slandered are few and far between.Hope you are conveniently left behind to personally interview one of the "Insurgents". By the way keep this bullshit up the Liberals have

Lost 3 elections in a row you will be a great help for the 4th.

It would be a fitting end to this story if you were to be killed in the war. That way we would all feel better about what you have done. I dont care if our boys kill you or the devil worshiping enemy you're enciting. If they film your head being cut off, and you screaming in terror would be the ultimate end. you are finished!

You had to know that sooner or later you would be found out. Why can't you "progressive" world enslavers just tell the truth about your intentions?



What's the matter Kofi got your tongue?

Sites makes me sick and all the rest of the liberal bastards who hate America. He enjoys the protection of the very Marines he villifies. Shame on him and all for call for that Marines prosecution. The more of those Terrrorists we kill the better this world will be. What has perverted the Muslim religion?

With any luck you turncoat traitor a car bomb or a beheading will change your mind. Be very very careful where you sit down, where you eat, who you talk with and who your freinds are.

I only ask you to stay over there; away from my children, and yet far away from those that are putting their lives on the line.

Please let me know when that 5.56mm round from a Marine M-16 finds Mr. Sites.

You disgusting bastard. How dare you second guess these guys and try to paint them as war criminals just to get your name in lights. If I was one of those guys I would conveniently let you be the insurgents next press victim.


I love the USA!!

It is most unfortunate that you are not an embedded cameraman for al-Zarqawi and his lovely gang of headhunters. What delightful photos you would have to share--that is, if you still had your head to take the photos. How much blood has been spilt so that you are even able to ride along with this valiant marines and take photos of their heroic acts!!! Through the years, from the founding of this nation, men and women have fought and many have died so that you have the freedom to do what you are doing. If you don't like what the United States is doing, why don't you leave? What you did is an act of treason and truly puts many of our marines and soldiers at risk. God help your soul if one dies because of your treacherous dead. Next time, why don't you on you own, all by yourself, with no backup approach the "dead" enemy and see if you survive. You are an embarrassment, a danger, and a threat to this nation and to the citizens who love her. Go away and never come back!!!!!!!

Sites, I would personally like to shoot you in the balls before I shoot you in the head. You are a scumbag just like John Kerry. You need to leave America.
