Sad..Sad and pointless. And the thing is, these guys probably would have been "insurgents" if America was invaded and they were just ordinary guys. We have got to learn to stop letting governments and military-industrial complexes and bought and paid for politicians talk us into fighting each other so they can make money. They are our real enemies.
