RW American Dictator Bush: Blew Up Wrong House 500 lb Bomb...Ooops
Edited on Sat Jan-08-05 05:31 PM by OutsourceBush
No problem, no white Republicans were killed. Go back to sleep...you are feeling very sleepy.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - The United States military acknowledged dropping a 500-pound bomb on the wrong house outside the northern city of Mosul on Saturday, killing five people. But the man who owned the house said the bomb killed 14 people including seven children.
--snip--
An Associated Press photographer said from the scene that 14 members of the same family seven children, four women and three men were killed, and six people were wounded, including another child.

3. Imagine if you will, sitting in a house with your extended family
cousins, brothers, sisters, uncles, and you are enjoying what is your only pleasure, that of talking and being with the ones you love. You pass a piece of bread to your wife, your child moves around restlessly on your lap, and a 500 pound bomb drops on your head.

6. It could happen to any Iraqi family at any time
That must be one reason why they are willing to blow themselves up, taking as many highly paid contract workers, and low paid soldiers, with them--for the good of the cause.

The partisans will win.

4. and the neocons think the partisans are "desperate"
:eyes:


Reminds me of the Scarlett Pimpernel w/Leslie Howard (sans the rhyme):

They bomb them here
They bomb them there
The Yankees bomb them everywhere
Are they in heaven or are they in hell
Those damned elusive terrorists~!

5. there must be more to this story than meets the eye....
The Pentagon usually insists that it has incontrovertible intel that destroyed homes, elementary schools, clinics, restaurants, and etc were "used by al Zarqawi fighters," who are undoubtedly one of the most frequent demographics in Iraq by now. Their acknowledgment that they did this by mistake likely means that someone really has the goods on the error, and any attempt to sweep it under the rug will only make them look worse. In other news, victory is just around the corner....

7. For every family member killed by Amurkan military hardware, there

are potentially dozens of new "terrorists" created, since this is such a clan based society.

It's one thing to fight an enemy, but to be killing civilians who have no dog in the fight... is something quite different.

I do know this... if my cousins or brothers were taken out by some of oh, I don't know... say Canada's "smart bombs".... I would be over the border in a matter of weeks to exact some sort of revenge, and if I didn't have an army, air force, etc.... I would at least have some kitchen utensils.

Invading Iraq has made the world safer for corporate hegemony, nothing more, nothing less. It's a shame that this world isn't big enough for all the bidnesses interested in oil production and flow to co-exist peacefully.
