    I wonder if they'll be using White Phosphorus again...
    How the hell can you avoid massive civilian casualties in an operation like this? By what right are US troops waging war on a whole province? Another WAR CRIME in the making.

    don't be jealous that your ruler isn't send directly by god!


    this is really awesome. i love hearing about how many people have been killed and yet no one seems to care. except the opposition party. oh wait, the me too party doesn't care either (with about 2 exceptions)

    should i be reading into this that the US has basically sided with the shia and are concentrating on putting down the sunnis?

    I think that would be a fair assumption, yes. Good, isn't it?

    I have a bad feeling about this for some reason. Felt this way after we attacked Fallujeh. This is only going to make things worse.

    Guess we gotta clear the way for the invasion of Iran!

    Hmmm... Remember the cries of Clinton 'wagging the dog' with the invasion of Bosnia during his low point in office when he was about to be impeached? Remember all the 'traitorous' Republicans that sided with the enemy, and against the troops then?

    Where are those voices today? Strangely silent for some (unprincipled) reason...

    Someone is wagging the dog:

    Operation Swarmer was a ruse.

    Guess it's better than blowing up a bunch of innocent people, but we probably still did that too.

    They should have called it Operation Swagger.

    But that would be truth in advertising. This is politics we're talking about. Luckily everybody was stuck at home because of the curfew.
