I Bow Before the Master

Who, may you ask?
Michael Moore? As if.
Al Gore? Get real.
Terrorist Sympathizer Bill O'Reily? Only in the alternate universe where I'm smoking crack, and I don't think I can survive smoking that much.

No, the Rude Pundit is the master and I am but a humble seeker after Enlightenment, for he takes what we all - at least those of us that aren't sociopaths - are thinking about our soldiers captured by Iraqi insurgents and sums it up in one sentence:

What if we get pictures of the soldiers, nude, cowering, screaming in a corner, shitting themselves on the filthy floors of a makeshift cell, as their captors hold snarling dogs on leashes just out of bite range of the soldiers?
That is a good question, 'cause it's not like we have the moral high ground there, is it?

UPDATE: Looks like two bodies have been found. Jesus God. Pentagon refuses to confirm whether or not it's the two missing soldiers. One can only hope, for the sake of their families, that Thomas Tucker and Kristian Menchaca are found alive and safe.
