RAMADI, Iraq, Oct 28 (Reuters) - Six Iraqis including three women and
two children were killed in a U.S. air strike in the city of Ramadi in Iraq's
western Anbar province on Saturday, a doctor at Ramadi hospital said.

A police brigadier said five civilians were killed in the attack. There was
no immediate comment from the U.S. military several hours after a request
for information.

Doctor Kamal al-Ani said the bodies of six members of a single family killed
in the strike had been brought to Ramadi hospital, before being released to
relatives for burial.

A senior U.S. general said earlier this week U.S. and Iraqi security forces were
taking "an aggressive, offensive approach" to reclaim Ramadi from insurgents.

1. There's no good time to kill innocent civilians.
There's no good time to lie a nation into war.

There's no good time to vote for a member of the modern Republican Party.

2. Probably all terrorists.
Even the children. Sometimes we have to kill people in order to make them love our freedoms.

5. Just another good reason...
on why the vast majority of the citizens of this country are not taking to this war. Things to ponder on:

1. What happened to the restructuring of Iraq? Where is the stability?

2. Where are those flower petals that are supposed to be raining down on our soldiers? Why isn't democracy taking hold quicker?

I do not believe that any of this belongs to our soldiers--I really don't! The whole fiasco belongs to our President, George Bush.

In a recent interview (Thursday, Oct. 19, 2006) Bill O'Reilly asks:

Bill O'Reilly - Q. Sixty percent of Americans are now against the Iraq War. Why?

President Bush - A. Because they want us to win.

Need I say more? :eyes:
