What do you think happened in Iraq recently which killed 40 Iraquis?
A US missile hit the wall outside of a mosque, and that killed 40 worshippers? I don't understand.

1. I doubt they were worshipers...
Fact is that they will attack the coalition...

and if they respond to being fired on and having morters and rockets launched at them it turns into "the Americans bombed a day care center and killed 20,000 civilians"

I don't care what side of the war issue you're on...if you are firing weapons out of a mosque.. you aren't a 'worshiper'...

4. Most were women and children.
The same people who said they were getting shot at were the same people who blew up a mosque during prayer killing many women and children.

These aren't the kind of people I trust at face value.

5. I Don't Believe Our Military
There's no reason to believe what our military has to say. They were planning a massacre, and now they are saying the Iraqis were firing from a mosque. I don't believe them.

12. Yes the Bush media has said that is a fact, so you believe it?
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 09:21 PM by Robbien
The Bush media has said only a wall has been bombed at the Mosque, and you believe it? The Bush media said they were shooting, and you believe it?

The CPA media room is staffed with GOP and AEI personnel. And you believe them?

Human shields, bah humbug.

13. The information about....
...Islamic fundies and Iraqi resistance fighting from mosques, or even schools and hospitals... using those places as shields, so the American wont fire back, or they can use it as propaganda later, comes from alot of places..not just the Bush administration... it's been a foregone conclusion as far as I'm concerned for some time now... you don't have to believe it if you don't want to, to each his own.. I can respect that.

The US, in following the rules of war, treats mosques and holy sites and the like.. as protected structions.. NOT to be attacked... but once there is firing and fighting and a buildup of armaments in and from such a place, it loses it's protection and is fair game...

They found lots of machine guns in the place and mortar installations on the roof... maybe if we cann their bluff, and the places DO get destroyed if they use them as shields.. maybe they will stop using them as sheilds and they will not have to be destroyed... some of those placea are very old.. it's sickening that they would fight from there.... but hey... that's the way they wanna play it... so be it..

best regards

16. Links?
I could find enough internet links to make you believe the moon was made of green cheese....

Do you honestly not believe that the people i referred to behaved in the way I described?

I'm not talking about sources or internet links... I'm talking would you bet your life savings on it?

You don't have to agree with me... no hard feelings...

23. It's a repetitive pattern with your posts
erroneous assumptions that parrot right-wing talking points, yet an inability to back those up with credible sources.

Transparent as hell...

a Baptist church here, even if someone inside had guns?

2. Gee, I don't know. Let's test a hypothesis.
Are you in your house? Good. Stay right there. I'll drive my bulldozer through one of your walls and we'll see what happens. Don't worry about your safety. I'll drive through your outside wall.

3. I believe the report said....

6. Were the 40 people killed outside or inside
Were the 40 people killed outside or inside the mosque itself when they died?

7. Where was our much vaunted "intelligence"
Had their heads up their ass again. Close a newspaper and all hell breaks loose. And why is it that dubya is always relaxing at his wanch when this kind of thing happens?

8. It wasn't a mosque. It was a "mosque compound"
We blew the shit out of a "mosque compound" to revenge the deaths of the 4 innocent "civilian contractors".

You really need to get a program.
:crazy:

19. oops. We're the stupid ones.... Pretty soon, we can..
invite the IDF israeli army in to show us how its done, and kill
some more; make some more war crimes; and learn to dine on barbacued
iraqi. How sick. They should make the military commanders eat
the bodies. Bush should take a bite. I'm sure he's hungry.
