    If I was able, I would be awake 24 hours a day to find them and get them back.

    The media doesn't care about that.

    Same here. My prayers are w/ them and their families. But as more time goes by, there chances grow slim. I hope I'm proven wrong :wtc:

    CNN reported that both soldiers have been found dead. No word on whether they were tortured, and no confirmation of how they were killed.

    I read at a news site that they showed signs of torture, and they were beheaded.

    The bodies of 2 U.S. soldiers were found mutilated and booby-trapped, military sources said today. Kristian Menchaca and Thomas Tucker went missing Friday after an attack on a checkpoint south of Baghdad. Their bodies were desecrated, and visual identification was impossible, sources said.

    "The bodies were found in the Yusufiya area, Maj. Gen. William Caldwell said, adding he believes the soldiers were mortally wounded, then moved.
    It was unclear whether he meant the wounds were suffered in the initial attack on a checkpoint or afterward. "Where we found them was not based on their own movements," he said."

    Hopefully this is the case and they died during the initial attack. Had they been captured alive I would have thought a video would have been made in attempt to fuel propaganda?

    Why would they have not made the video and threaten their lives in return for something else. (ie; release of hostages or demands in general) They've done this in the past for leverage, why would they have decided against doing it now?

    If they were mortally wounded, that means they were alive when they were captured but died sometime after of the wounds they received during the initial attack.

    I would be surprised if they didn't make some kind of video - even if it shows them after they had already died.

    If they didn't die during the initial attack I hope they died quickly and soon after. I'm glad their bodies have been found and their families can have peace of mind.

    god how i wish we could capture a handful of those bastards and treat them the same way, then leave their dead bodies rotting in the desert for the others to find...

    and don't give me that "eye for an eye" isn't the answer bullshite. KILL the bastards that are killing us, stop chasing them through the hills... god i swear i could jus... /rant

    *ahem*
    i hope there are some type of classified "goings on" that treat the enemy the same way we are treated.

    Kill them, and video soldiers burying the insurgents inside of a pig. I bet that would stop most of the volunteers.
