  • Lynch Rescuers Cursed?

    Josh Daniel Speer. David M. Tapper. Sok Khak Ung. Kyle Edward Williams. What do these four men have in common? A few things. Let's count them down.
    First of all, they're all recent combat veterans in the American armed forces front-line fighters in the global War Against Terror. Secondly, they're all connected to Jessica Lynch, and three took part in the much-publicized raid to rescue her from the sinister clutches of her, um doctors and nurses. Third and most importantly, they're all dead now.

    On July 6 of this year, 21 year old Marine Josh Daniel Speer died in a single-car crash after spending his first weekend home from Iraq since the start of the war. Speer was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash, and apparently fell asleep at the wheel.

    Navy Petty Officer First Class David Tapper was rotated over to Afghanistan after taking part in the Lynch rescue. There, he died on August 20, shot in the back by bandits during an ambush.

    Army Specialist Kyle Edward Williams apparently committed suicide on October 2, after killing a man who was trying to steal a beer cooler from his truck. Williams' lifeless body was later discovered by authorities alongside a San Diego road. Although he didn't take part in the rescue raid, he worked in the 507th Maintenance Company, same as Jessica Lynch.

    And, finally (for now!), 22-year-old Lance Corporal Sok Khak Ung - a combat engineer who earned a purple heart after being hit by shrapnel from a land-mine - was shot dead through a fence on October 19 during an impromptu bbq party in his father's back yard. His murderer(s) is(are) still at large as of this writing.

    Pretty weird, ain't it? It's at least as weird as that Poltergeist curse. And what about Jessica Lynch? What can she tell us about these tragic, untimely deaths? Probably nothing, what with her suffering from that government-mandated bout of temporary, partial, atypical pseudo-amnesia and such. Besides, she's probably too busy refusing to acknowledge the Iraqi lawyer who risked his life to save hers to answer ridiculously biased questions

          the marines that rescued them should get recognition, but it goes un-noticed that they are still out there doing their thinbg

            Are you all implying that she should have just been left in captivity. It sounds to me like people are just creating myths, trying to create some sort of justification for despising her. I would like to see what people have to say after the had to endure the mental and physical pains of being held captive in a strange place where only 1 out 100 people speak english. Personally, I wouldn't with it upon anyone to have to go through what she went through. If you all want to hate anyone for the incident of the 507th Maintenance Company, hate their C.O. for taking an unprepared company into a hostile situation. Their company hadn't even fired their weapons since going to a firing range 7 months earlier. Blame him for his poor leadership in not demanding a strict maintenance of a persons firearms. During the firefight, almost all of the M-16's in that company had jammed due to insufficient maintenance and cleaning. Blame him for his mistake of turning strait into the enemy position. And if that's not good enough, you can blame President George W. Bush for sending our troops into a war that to this date, he cannot justify!

            I've never made my opinion a secret. Basically I stand behind our troops no matter what they go through. I do not agree with President Bush's decisions leading us into this war.

            If life is a waste of time and time is a waste of life; let's all get wasted together and have the time of our lives!
