Wonder if the reporter is in any way biased Spook?
This goes unchallenged by your earnest man in the field and comes from the same article that you posted. Nowhere in the article does anyone have anything good to say about the Americans. Objective? Hardly but this really takes the cake.
“The Americans do not care about the Iraqis. They don’t care if they get killed, because they don’t care about the citizens,” said Abu Mohammed, 50, who was a major general in Saddam Hussein’s army in Baghdad. "The Americans keep criticizing Saddam for the mass graves. How many graves are the Americans making in Iraq?
This has got to be a joke right? By anyone’s account, the total number killed TOTAL in Iraq since the invasion began is 24,000. Saddam killed millions and there are no mass graves. Also, does anyone really believe that the US army is deliberately targeting civilians?
I mean you cannot have it both ways, you have argued that we are still in a war and have not controlled anything and that Bush was wrong to say the war was over. Okay, fine. Have it your way, the war ain’t over but the person is citing a figure of 3,500 for the past six months? During a war? Does that sound like an outrageous figure to you? And where is the proof that the civilian deaths are caused by American weapons? Smell what you are shoveling here.
