I think SP is taking a little more flack than he deserves here. He never stated that you should leave men behind. He was making a point that in this particular situation, it was very likely that the retrieval of the bodies could have been done after that area had come under coalition control, thus reducing the risk to the brave soldiers who rescued Jessica Lynch. I understand the never leave a man behind philosophy and why it is important to the families and soldiers (my brother jumped into N. Iraq with the 173rd and was involved with a KIA recovery). I also understand that there was no guarantee that the bodies could have been recovered later for a large number of reasons. I agree on these points and think they are valid responses to SP. However, I don't think it warranted a “shame on you” and other harsh retorts. knight427
