Ungrateful Human Shields...

Remember Tom Fox? The "Human Shield" that was tortured and killed in Iraq? Well, the rest of the Pacifist Shields were rescued by coalition forces. Their families had all but given up hope --they have been hostages for four months.

But (of course there's a but), as Stop the ACLU is reporting, the released hostages are anything but grateful to the troops that rescued them. Though a thanks to the military rescuers was never mentioned once in any of the statements released they did make a point to blame the military for being captured in the first place...

"We believe the illegal occupation of Iraq by multinational forces is the root cause of the insecurity which led to this kidnapping and so much pain and suffering in Iraq today. The occupation must end." (source)

...AND they did make a point to say that they loved their captors...

"Today, in the face of this joyful news, our faith compels us to love our enemies even when they have committed acts which caused great hardship to our friends and sorrow to their families." (source)

Just so we aren't surprised at this reaction...let's remember what kind of people we are dealing with here by taking a look at more of the Zombie Protestor Hall of Shame. These are the "best" (really worst I guess) --as I looked through the photos here (<---example), I honestly couldn't believe that these people are Americans... that they could be my kid's teacher, my teller at the bank, or my hairdresser. Quite frankly it's chilling.
