Please help...

It is MOST necessary every once in a while for me to draw attention to issues that strike through my heart.

It is my ONLY hope that at least one of you would sign and/or forward this petition on to those who care too.

This is not a reflection on our troops in Iraq; it's simply handling things as they come along. We should care enough to act.

please act. and please cut & paste this link in to your browser to sign the petition.

WHETHER YOU SUPPORT THE MILITARY OR NOT, PLEASE VOICE YOUR OUTRAGE AT THE HEINUOUS DISPLAY OF CRUELTY CAPTURED ON VIDEO OF WHAT APPEARS TO BE 3 U.S. SOLDIERS, ONE HOLDING A VIDEO CAMERA AND TWO THROWING ROCKS AT A CRIPPLED, DEFENSELESS DOG. THIS DOG TRIED TO RUN AND ESCAPE FROM THESE MEN ON TWO LEGS.

PLEASE WRITE TO
SECRETARY OF DEFENSE


The Honorable Robert M. Gates
Secretary of Defense
1000 Defense Pentagon
Washington, DC 20301-1000

AND DEMAND THAT THE FOLLOWING ARTICLES BE APPLIED TO THESE MONSTERS THAT REPRESENT THE U.S.

Article 134-1 Abusing Public Animals, wild and strays.

Article 116 Breach of the Peace

Article 80 Attempts

ALTHOUGH SIGNATURES ARE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED WRITING A LETTER TO THE SECT. OF DEFENSE IS KINDLY REQUESTED.

I HAVE RESEARCHED SNOPES, AND LOGGED ONTO MILITARY PHOTOS.NET BLOG SITE WHERE SOLDIERS ARE VOICING THEIR ANGER AT THE INHUMANE AND ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR THAT WAS DISPLAYED ON THE VIDEO.

WARNING VIDEO IS VERY GRAPHIC AND DISTURBING.

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=6445f9fdd7

THIS IS A DEFENSLESS, CRIPPLED DOG THAT TRIED TO RUN AWAY AND ESCAPE (ON TWO LEGS) WHILE THESE MEN THREW ROCKS AT HIM/HER. THIS CANNOT BE MISCONSTRUED AS A VICIOUS ANIMAL WHICH THE ARMY HAS ORDERS TO SHOOT. THESE MEN TAUNTED AN EMACIATED DISABLED ANIMAL WITHOUT PROVOCATION.

THERE ARE FOUR NAMES AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PETITION TO ADDRESS YOUR LETTERS PROTESTING THIS SORT OF BEHAVIOR. THESE FOUR
PEOPLE ARE THE HEADS OF THE ARMY PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICE.



I thank you!

When you consider that these men are at war, it is shocking to know that their sense of humanity and decency are slowing being chipped away while they fight a pointless war. If you truly believe in karma, God help these "men" if the Iraqis capture them.

I am right on this...that is just sick. Ya know, do what you want to people, but animals are basically defenseless....I can't stand bullies who pick on animals, american soldiers or not...

I wouldn't want to be a person or an animal in that 3rd world sh*thole, and it dehumanizes our guys when left there too long.

I think the ravages of war bring out the worst in everyone. Poor dog and worse still poor sons of our countries mothers.
