In Iraq, 'Everybody knows somebody killed by the war'


  1. <span style="font-size: small; font-family: Calibri;">Praise Be to Allah!</span>
    You're starting to talk like peace now fleming.

  2. "...either because of actions by American troops or, far more commonly, in the widespread bloodletting that the invasion triggered."

  3. Thanks for the heads up fleming, can it track rockets?

  4. <span style="">So you think that "wonder weapons" will save you at the last moment, sounds familiar. </span>

  5. "Im guessing it can track any munition fired multiple times from the same area."
    <span style="">I wouldn’t count on it! </span>

    <span style="">“Delta Base of the American occupation forces based in Wasit province have been attacked by two Katyusha missiles by unidentified gunmen today Tuesday. Witnesses said they heard the sound of two explosions and increasing black smokes from inside the base, after the helicopter flew the skies in search of the place of the firing of rockets.”</span>

    The "war on terror" has created a culture of fear in America. The Bush administration's elevation of these three words into a national mantra since the horrific events of 9/11 has had a pernicious impact on American democracy, on America's psyche and on U.S. standing in the world. Using this phrase has actually undermined our ability to effectively confront the real challenges we face from fanatics who may use terrorism against us.The damage these three words have done -- a classic self-inflicted wound -- is infinitely greater than any wild dreams entertained by the fanatical perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks when they were plotting against us in distant Afghan caves. The phrase itself is meaningless. It defines neither a geographic context nor our presumed enemies. Terrorism is not an enemy but a technique of warfare -- political intimidation through the killing of unarmed non-combatants.
