I once read a story of General "Balck Jack" Pershing in batteling the Hucks in the Phillipines. He had capture 50 of them, tied them to post above a trench. Slaughtered pigs and threw them into the trench, then shot 49 of the captives. He had the lone survivor released. There was no problem with tne Muslims for the next 60 years. I have no idea if this is true, but makes for a good stroy.
If that is true then General Pershing was a war criminal. If it not true you should not repeat it and sully the memory of someone who was in service to our country. PS-either way it is a HORRIBLE story.
