Iraqis Say U.S. Troops Kill at Least 13 Protesters

quote:
Residents of the town 30 miles west of Baghdad told Reuters that between 13 and 17 people were killed and many wounded when soldiers occupying a local school fired on unarmed demonstrators who had been calling for U.S. troops to get out of their country following the ousting of Saddam Hussein.

And what really happened:

quote:
THE rescue of Private Jessica Lynch, which inspired America during one of the most difficult periods of the war, was not the heroic Hollywood story told by the US military, but a staged operation that terrified patients and victimised the doctors who had struggled to save her life

So who really did save Private Jessica

Of course they opened fire on unarmed protestors.

W.Nut, I read somewhere that it was you who saved Private Lynch. Stop being so modest.

Wouldn't want to upset your self-impose, propaganda fed ignorance with facts, would ya daddy? So why read the article at all, eh?

Unarmed protestors, my ass.

Those kids had rocks! Some the size of my fist. Those things could take out an eye. What are they doing protesting in the middle of the day anyway? Shouldn't they be at their sewing machines, or in the mines, or otherwise engaged in making shoddy consumer goods at a low, low price?

Thank God and Jesus that our brave boys are there defending democracy from those thankless hoardes of ill-mannered school children.

Before DS's eyes roll right out of his bloody head, and before anyone even mentions Israel, let's concentrate on the fact that is has happened before, and will probably happen again. There are obviously many, many firearms and other weapons loose in the hands of the people of Iraq, and it seems a lot of the people are damned angry with the occupying force. Already there are reports reacting to this incident in which the US is saying they were "fired upon" (a single shot in the CBC radio story I heard this morning). The problem is not with the Iraqis, but with the occupying force. They need to take a lower profile, try different methods, or these tragic incidents will become the normal way of dealing with demonstrators.

The stance that the yanks take on this, that a single shot fired at them means a wholesale leadfest unleashed by their (illegal) occupying soldiers is even more disturbing. That they make excuses instead of changing their tactics is becoming a problem.

the christian science monitor online had a good article right after the fall of baghdad: they pointed out that all these young U.S. soldiers have been killing and killing and killing during the war ... and you can't just shut that off by flicking a switch. they aren't suited for peacekeeping/policing.

Let's wait until there's a peace to keep, shall we?
