WASHINGTON, Aug. 6, 2005 – Iraqi and coalition forces successfully defeated a coordinated terrorist attack Aug. 5 at an Iraqi army post south of Baghdad, officials said. Six of the terrorists were killed. Twelve were captured.
The terrorists launched the attack with mortar rounds and small-arms fire at 7:55 p.m. Iraqi soldiers returned fire while Task Force Baghdad attack helicopters rushed to the site and engaged the terrorists with rockets and gunfire, officials said.

Almost simultaneously, a suicide bomber drove a truck into a nearby Iraqi army checkpoint. One Iraqi soldier was killed in the explosion. Another was wounded. The driver of the truck also was killed, but U.S. troops suffered no injuries, officials said.

"The checkpoint did what it was supposed to do," said U.S. Army Lt. Col. Clifford Kent, a Task Force Baghdad spokesman. "It stopped a terrorist from carrying out his plot to cause significant casualties and damage."

In that way, Kent noted, "the checkpoint was a success. (It) demonstrates Iraqi security forces' ability to defend against terrorist attacks."

Don't you know that all the enemy fighters are terrorists? Haven't you been listening and absorbing what the media tells you! Get with it, bud!


It's interesting how in wars of the past, our enemy were called enemy soldiers. There's even a slight feeling of respect for the 'enemy soldiers' of previous wars. After all, they were fighting for their rights and their land and we could relate to that because we've done the same thing.

This war, people have been brainwashed to think that anyone who fights against us are terrorists! Regardless of where they're from, what they're fighting for, the weapons they use. They're terrorists, simply because they won't give into the demands of the US. They're less than human!

We have no idea who these people were, they could be citizens of Iraq fighting against the occupation, fighting for their homes and families. But if you buy the gruel served up by the government and media, they're scumbag terrorists who don't deserve to live.

War is war and people dying is death. This war is all wrong and forgive me if I don't celebrate in this 'victory'.
