From the New York Post:

A schoolteacer encourages a classful of thoroughly reprogrammed peace-robot kids at a junior High School in Brooklyn to write demoralizing letters to one PFC Rob Jacobs. Some of the meaningful bits:

"Filled with political diatribes, the letters — excerpts of which were printed in yesterday's Post — predicted GIs would die by the tens of thousands, accused soldiers of killing Iraqi civilians and bashed President Bush.

Teacher Alex Kunhardt had his students write Jacobs as part of a social-studies assignment.

One girl wrote that she believes Jacobs is "being forced to kill innocent people" and challenged him to name an Iraqi terrorist, concluding, "I know I can't."

Another girl wrote, "I strongly feel this war is pointless," while a classmate predicted that because Bush was re-elected, "only 50 or 100 [soldiers] will survive."

A boy accused soldiers of "destroying holy places like mosques."

PFC Jacobs is stationed in South Korea.
