Hiding in Mosques
Will mainstream Iraqis blame the thugs who desecrate the mosque in the first place? Or will they believe the worst about us and think weÃ¢€™re out to get innocent people? I donÃ¢€™t know enough about Iraqi culture to say.
Nor do I. Given what we’ve seen of Arab reaction in general, though, I doubt much blame will go to the cowards who hide behind supposedly sacred places while attacking the Infidels. There are no good choices in situations like this. I’d err on the side of saving Marines and killing bad guys.
