More Us Bashing Its Allies

Recommended Posts

How does this help peace right-wingers?

So this is so they actually feel

"We have had enough of the Americans killing us and then just saying 'Oh, sorry!'" said Salam Mohammed, 60, a Fallujah resident and a relative of some of the victims.

"We want the Americans to leave our country because they have brought us only death," said Taleb Hameed, a 30-year-old schoolteacher. "We are fed up with their apologies. We will continue our resistance."

Iraqi policemen who survived recounted from their hospital beds Saturday how they begged the American soldiers to stop shooting, screaming in Arabic and English that they were police. The Americans kept firing volley after volley, they said. The fusillade raged for a half hour as more men died and others groaned in pain from their wounds, they said.

"We carry out our duty and that's what we get?" said Mohammed, who was shot in his right leg.

"We shouted and shouted that we are from the police, but they kept firing from all directions. It was like an ambush," he said.

Shoot first, shoot second, shoot third and never ask any questions! The true method of the right! Let's get rid of our allies, who needs allies?

Let's make the people we need hate us! Because that is always the quickest way to *cough*oblivion*cough* I mean peace!

Only in America is Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's supposed Wedding on the Front page and US killing 8 badly needed police on the 3rd page. *shakes head is total disgust*

A tragic mistake. Back at the end of open hostilities in Aganistan we lost some of our own guys to US friendly fire as well. I knew one of the guys who got killed. These things do happen and although part of every war, they are terrible and unexpected. What would be even more tragic would be if the Iraqi people allow militants use this as a rallying point to stir agitation. If you read further down the article you will see Powell commenting on the timeframe for Iraqi self rule to take place so there is an end in sight I hope.
