If you have "no place to go," come here!

The ages of the victims are in Arabic numerals



75, 30, 28, 23, 23, 22, 6, 5, 5, 3, 3. And speaking of grandparents and grandchildren, here's excerpt from the Iraqi police report shown at left that describes the incident:

At 230 of 15/3/2006, according to the telegram (report) of the Ishaqi police directorate, American forces used helicopters to drop troops on the house of Faiz Harat Khalaf situated in the Abu Sifa village of the Ishaqi district. The American forces gathered the family members in one room and executed 11 people, including 5 children, 4 women and 2 men, then they bombed the house, burned three vehicles, and killed their animals...

This is the sign of a demoralized force, just as My Lai in Vietnam. Yes, the troops are moral agents, but let's put the reponsibility where it really lies: The real evil has been done by Bush, Rummy, the neo-cons, and their chickhawk cheerleaders and yellow elephant whores in the VRWC: Not only did they do evil, they caused others to do evil; they sucked thousands of others down into the pit with them.

If there were a just God, She would consign the Administration to the lowest circles of Hell for making this happen.

NOTE 2 Most coverage is focusing on the Army investigation of this incident. Knight-Ridder, to its credit, gives the crucial nuance that the story originates from the Iraqis.
