What we are dealing with

IraqSlogger has a video clip showing the execution of Iraqi captives by al-Qaeda after the usual tiresome pseudo-religious voiceover claptrap.  It is graphic footage at the end of the captives being shot.  One can imagine this is what the SS Einsatzgruppen looked like in World War II. 

Unpleasant footage, but it shows what we are up against.  We've made huge mistakes in Iraq, but as Joffre said at The Marne, the time for looking back is over.  It appears that General Petraeus may know how to corner the bad guys and finish them off.  Let's get them there so we don't have to get them here.
