Perspective And Proportionality: On Explosive Dogs, Koran In A Toilet Is Abuse, But The Burning Of A Christian Cross By Muslims Gets A Pass

Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives

I'm not in favor of cruelty to animals, and consider this story to be indicative of the cowardice and cruelty of the islamofascist thugs in Iraq that the MSM call "insurgents." But can you imagine the outcry from the MSM and animal activist groups should the U.S. forces place bombs on dogs, camels, goats, or any other animal to feret out terrorists? There would be pandemonium in the media, the administration would be accused of numerous acts of "terrorism" against animals - all from "un-named sources(in the pentagon), the Muslims would riot(with our luck the damned dog was a "muslim" pet that once urinated "near" a Koran, or on it,  and was therefore "holy"), and the animal rights activists would demand that we found all the pieces of the animal that had been blown to hell and back - and bury them.

IRAQ insurgents attached explosives to a dog today in a bid to bomb a military convoy near the northern oil centre of Kirkuk but the animal was the only casualty, police said.

The insurgents wrapped an explosive belt around the dog's body and detonated it as the convoy passed through Dakuk, 40km south of Kirkuk, the town's police chief Colonel Mohammed Barzaji said.

"The dog was torn apart by the explosion which caused neither injury among the soldiers nor any damage," said Barzaji, adding that the bomb had been detonated outside a Shiite mosque.

Eight suspects have been detained," he said.

It is not the first time that animals have been used in insurgent attacks. In 2003, donkey carts were used to conceal makeshift multiple rocket launchers in a flurry of attacks in Baghdad.

Animal carcasses and even human corpses have also been used to conceal explosives.

Outcry? It's all about proportionality, perspective, and balance - none of which exists in the anti-American press. The Koran in the toilet issue was an "abuse," but burning a cross in a London park doesn't even get a mention!

By the way, I'm feel sorry for the dog, I would much rather that the Muslim dogs that the MSM call "insurgents," had blown themselves up. After all, I'm not sure that the dog cares a damned about the 72 virgins he should get for his sacrifice.
