You tell me which is which:
Frattini told reporters that Fabrizio Quattrocchi, one of four Italian security guards abducted outside Baghdad, was hooded when his kidnappers put a gun to his head.Who's brave and worthy of honor and respect? The mere "mercenary" who fought to look his killers in the eyes before he shuffled off this mortal coil, or the men who kidnapped him and shot him from behind a hood?
"When the murderers were pointing a pistol at him, this man tried to take off his hood and shouted: 'Now I'm going to show you how an Italian dies'. And they killed him," Frattini said.
"He died a hero."
It's hard to see these murderers as anything but sub-human scum. It's hard, but I'm trying.
