I'm against baiting bears or deer for the purpose of an easy hunt. So imagine how I felt when I read this. It is just about the most inhuman, cynical method of fighting a war that I can imagine. What the hell are these people, these great warriors, thinking?
A Pentagon group has encouraged some U.S. military snipers in Iraq to target suspected insurgents by scattering pieces of "bait," such as detonation cords, plastic explosives and ammunition, and then killing Iraqis who pick up the items, according to military court documents.
