But once in a while, someone decides to be on the same page as me.
Iraqi soldiers once had al-Zarqawi but let him go because they didn't "know who he was".
That's a bit fucktarded, and this post mentioned it.
Yes... it was a regrettable mistake - if you consider the thousands of lives lost to this opportunistic madman as being "regrettable". And as usual, the Kos-aks were at their ususal attack-poodle mode.

We couldn't f&*k this up anymore if we actually tried!

Iraqi's already know how to fight, (none / 1)It sucks when the Enemy points out something that you legitimately screwed up on.
