: SkyNews says that two U.S. soldiers stopped in traffic were killed by having their throats slit. Another report says they were shot and then dragged from their vehicle and pummeled with concrete blocks.

This is not the time for restraint. Even the Iraqi bloggers say that. This is the time to end these murderous crimes.

: Atrios says all this is “not a good sign.”

Not a good sign of what?

Of the morals of our opponents?

Of the depths to which our opponents will stoop?

Of the evil of the people who ruled Iraq, whom we ousted?

A sign of what, Atrios?
