Sectarian violence continues after elections

"Bombings gutted a market and destroyed at least five buildings in working-class Shiite Muslim areas of Baghdad on Tuesday, killing dozens as violence following last month's elections continued to escalate and raise fears among Iraqis that a new civil war could erupt."

Meanwhile the "Palestinian Pundit" is much more concerned about a three year old US helicopter attack that killed a dozen people, including two Reuters journalists.

WikiLeaks did not merely post the 38-minute video, it used the label “Collateral Murder” and said it depicted “indiscriminate” and “unprovoked” killing.

Hey that sounds like what Al Qaeda did just in the last few days. But our Arab brethren seem to be angered only when Americans kill Iraqis, as they always have been.

Blowing up residential areas is reprehensible. I think everybody knows that. I think that everybody with sense is against AQ, even the Americans who helped create AQ in the first place.

What's particularly shocking of the footage of the reporters getting massacred is the personal nature of the attack and the obvious pleasure the US chopper pilots get from killing Iraqis.

Not much difference between them and AQ I'd say.

I'd say your comment would look more appropriate in a Comic Sans font.

Someone should tell Reuters that calling insurgents reporters doesn't ensure their safety. If they were reporters,they weren't the brightest bulbs on the tree. Hey,let's go hang with armed men on a Baghdad street corner during the height of the insurgency. Gotta love the comments by Wikileaks in the video. "Although some of the men appear to have been armed,the behavior of nearly everyone was relaxed". By "nearly",they're apparently referring to the dead guy on top of the unexploded RPG round....LOL.

"The problem, according to many who have viewed the video, is that WikiLeaks appears to have done selective editing that tells only half the story. For instance, the Web site takes special care to slow down the video and identify the two photographers and the cameras they are carrying.

However, the Web site does not slow down the video to show that at least one man in that group was carrying a rocket-propelled grenade launcher, a clearly visible weapon that runs nearly two-thirds the length of his body.

WikiLeaks also does not point out that at least one man was carrying an AK-47 assault rifle. He is seen swinging the weapon below his waist while standing next to the man holding the RPG."

What exactly are the rules of engagement when it comes to insurgents? Can they only be shot after a suicide bombing,or after setting off a roadside bomb? Maybe someone should have asked them nicely to drop the RPG's? Are soldiers targets 24/7,while insurgents can only be shot when they don't "appear relaxed"? As for the Reuters guys,someone should have warned them of the dangers of doing PR work for insurgents.

Americans must be the most barbaric and sick sons of bitches the world has ever known. You motherfuckers go around slaughtering people and then try to defend it. The whole world saw the video so why not end the bullshit. Just come out and say we are Americans, we kill Arabs and Muslims, and we enjoy it. Its part of our culture, part of our morality, and part of our culture. That is who we are. we are just being Americans. Next time a Muslim terrorist kills a few Americans dont get all surprised if some people dont give a shit or even get some satisfaction out of it.

Go get Stupid and he can tell us it was all Saddams fault.

Not smart for a reporter to hang-out with terrorists.

But Habis, "Muslim terrorists" are too busy blowing up Baghdad apartment blocks and slaughtering Arabs YOU don't give a shit about.

When they aren't busy in Baghdad they are mowing down scores of people at rallies in Pakistan...then they will detonate a couple bombs outside the US consulate simultaneously to say they are targeting the Amreeki.

"...even the Americans who helped create AQ in the first place."

Typical and predictable slander popular with the American-hating left. American aid to the Afghan mujahideen fighting the Soviets in the 1980s did not go to al Qaeda (which did not then exist) or help to create it. Let's not forget Ahmad Shah Masood, the leading figure in the Afghan mujahideen, was murdered by al Qaeda the day before 9-11.

Facts mean nothing in the realm of leftism. Ideology means everything. The marriage between moronic socialists and radical Islamists is beneath contempt.

Americans are so stupid.

Habis is just a parrot who loves to repeat the word "stupid". The monkey who trains him should teach him some new words.

Which is why you should boycott every product they make, starting with your computer.

Habis should also give up his American citizenship.
