Question #1
What famous American (now deceased) drove one of the bulldozers that buried Iraqi soldiers alive in their trenches during the Gulf War I?

Clue 1: He worked for his killer's father.

Question #2
Who said:

quote:
There is a gap in the law of war in defining precisely when surrender takes effect or how it may be accomplished. An attempt at surrender in the midst of a hard-fought battle is neither easily communicated nor received."

in defense of the bulldozer drivers?

Both are intruiging questions, neither of which I know the answer to. The second quote is nonsense, in my opinion. Bulldozers burying people alive isn't exactly what I'd call a hard fought battle, but more of a one sided event.

Not sure if others are stumped or uninterested but I'll post the correct answers on Tuesday (or sooner if someone gets it).

They answer to question 2 is our old pal Dickless Cheney.

The first has me stumped.

Ed. I'll take a shot at the first one. Timothy McVeigh? He worked for Bush 41, killed by Bush 43.

Jingle bells, jingle bells. Good guess there jingles. I shouldn't have left the clue!

quote:
... And saying so doesn’t make us defenders of Timothy McVeigh. Personally, I find his ideas disgusting and offensive. But he was shaped by the violence of the society around him. McVeigh was trained to be a mass murderer during the 1991 Gulf War against Iraq. He drove one of the bulldozer vehicles that buried surrendering Iraqi soldiers alive during the ground war. Then, the U.S. government considered him a hero.

Overseas mass murderer brings his talents home...

Cheney - maximum speed and violence

What bodies? - Sloyan

I'll have to give credit to google.

I do remember reading an article/interview about McVeigh (I think in Playboy. But I only read it for the dirty pictures.) in which he describes shooting surrendering Iraqis with the 20mm cannon on his Bradley fighting vehicle.

But since he wore a uniform that was perfectly acceptable behaviour. Must support the troop, ya know!
