Three U.S. troops killed in Iraq

BAGHDAD, Aug 21 (Reuters) - Three members of a U.S. Marine unit were killed in action in western Iraq on Sunday, the U.S. military said in a statement.

The statement released on Monday gave few details of what appeared to be a single incident: "Two Marines and one sailor assigned to Regimental Combat Team 7 died from wounds sustained due to enemy action while operating in Al Anbar Province."

2. When they're this coy, I always suspect that "Anbar" means "Fallujah"

3. Anbar is a big place.
Faloojah is a good guess, but there are many places to choose from, and we have pissed many people off out that way ... The thing I wonder is what are the troops supposed to be doing out there these days, besides providing target practice and tactical training as OPFOR for the "rebels".

5. And 4 US killed in Afghanistan, along with 1 UK soldier.
BUSH has caused MORE AMERICAN DEATHS than 911.

Any wonder the world thinks Americans are the stupidest MFers on the planet?

6. Pile 'em high in Al Anbar

Grass Bush

Pile the bodies high in Austerlitz and Waterloo Iraq
Shovel them under and let me work--
I am the grass; bush; I cover all.

And pile them high in Gettyburg Baghdad
And pile them high in Ypres and Vedum Al Anbar and Al Fallaujah

Two years, ten years, and passengers ask the conductor:
What place is this?

I am the grass bush.
Let me work.

Carl Sandburg


Support the war - Donate a Son a daughter
The GOP working for a better America
God Bless America
