16. Looks like they've changed it

to include the word "compound" now:

US bombards Iraq mosque complex

A US air strike has killed as many as 40 people inside a mosque compound during heavy fighting in the Sunni Muslim Iraqi town of Falluja.
A US Marine colonel said the strike targeted insurgents who had fired on US troops from inside the mosque compound.

Five US Marines were wounded by gunfire from within the compound, the US military said.


AP also specifies compound:

FALLUJAH, Iraq (AP) -- U.S. Marines in the third day of a battle to pacify this Sunni Muslim city fired a rocket and dropped a 500-pound, laser-guided bomb on a mosque compound Wednesday, and witnesses said as many as 40 people were killed.

<snip>

An Associated Press reporter saw cars ferrying the dead and wounded from the Abdul-Aziz al-Samarrai mosque. Witnesses said part of a wall surrounding the mosque compound was destroyed but the main building was not damaged.

In Baghdad, Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt told CNN that from photos of the mosque he had seen, "the actual mosque structure itself" was not damaged.

"It is a holy place, there is no doubt about it," Kimmitt added. "It has a special status under the Geneva Convention that it can't be attacked.

"However, it can be attacked when there is a military necessity brought on by the fact that the enemy is storing weapons, using weapons, inciting violence and executing violence from its grounds," he said.

2. If there were people firing from the wall surrounding the Mosque
and the soliders blew up the wall, what's the problem? What were they supposed to do?

13. Exactly what I said in another thread
Can you imagine terrorists attacking a Fundamentalist Christian Church? They would have the right to fight back, but Iraqi civilians don't?

3. I guess it all depends on the meaning of near is.
:shrug: I guess if they were inside that could be considered near. But did you hear Clinton got a Blow Job?

4. I know...I saw that too.....I simply couldn't believe it...
The UK media is reporting it as an attack ON a Mosque, as were the original US media stories...then someone figured out how bad that might look and altered it....

If ANYONE wanted proof positive that the US media is in FULL spin mode it is this...

It is sickening and disgusting beyond belief.....

5. Clarification
NOt making excuses here but the 40 were killed in the Mosque compound, not in the mosque itself. There was a wall outside of the mosque that was hit by US helicopters, the 40 were inside the wall but not inside the Mosque proper.

11. They know exactly what they are doing...


It was inside the compound and that qualifies as killing people at or inside a mosque. Near implies that it is in the streets outside of the mosque.

They are just towing the Pentagon line, nothing more.

The point was that they are technically accurate if sprititually whoring for the administration

Still saying that the mosque is still standing.

15. It doesn't matter what MSNBC tells America, it matters
It matters what is heard all over Iraq, which is that "The Americans bombed a mosque killing all the worshippers inside."
