Mirror | Submitted by: Porcus the Wombat
"Sergeant First Class John Meadows summed up the prevailing attitude amongst his colleagues telling the Evening Standard that Iraqi fighters were dressed in civilian clothes. 'You can't distinguish between who's trying to kill you and who's not,' he said. 'Like, the only way to get through shit like that was to concentrate on getting through it by killing as many people as you can, people you know are trying to kill you. Killing them first and getting home.' ... Describing the scene during combat Richardson admitted shooting injured soldiers and leaving them to die. He said: 'Shit, I didn't help any of them. I wouldn't help the fuckers. There were some you let die. And there were some you double-tapped.'

You didn't want any prisoners of war.'"

Local police dismissed suggestions of any link between the castle, a popular tourist attraction among gothic thrill-seekers, and the decapitated man as 'absurd.'"
