Holy Propaganda, Batman! "anti-Iraqi forces..."
From a Reuters piece:

"Eleven Marines died while engaged with the anti-Iraqi forces for more than seven hours; one died from wounds suffered during the firefight," the U.S. military said in a statement."

Those anti-Iraqi forces were all Iraqi's. Amazing. We are killing Iraqi's, but we're the pro-Iraqi forces? The mind boggles.

3. Good catch, thanks for posting...must have been written by GOP plant
in the Iraqi press office; papers this weekend full of stories about the official press corps being heavily stacked with GOP operatives, placed there specifically to try to keep all the news positive and upbeat and complimentary of the BushCo whores and affirming that the war in Iraq was justified as part of the war on terrorism, gag me already...

Send it to Franken on Air America; he's looking for examples of just such stupidity. Send it to Kerry too, maybe. And the talk shows.

4. This whole situation oozes with irony
One of the excuses bunnypants uses for invading Iraq is the mass graves. Now we're creating mass graves. And why were there mass graves? Because Saddam put down the uprising against him. And why are we creating mass graves? Because we're putting down the uprising against us.

5. At first, I thought you meant a journalist was using saying
At first, I thought you meant a journalist was using the phrase "anti-Iraqui forces," so I'm momentarily relieved that it was a US military spoekesperson using that phrase.

Overall, though, this has been a horrifying day regarding Iraq.

7. Terrorists???
"'Terrorists' were using that mosque for cover so they could fire at our troops" according to Fox.

This is getting ridiculous! When did they become terrorists??? Last week we were liberating them.
