You say yourself that children are being shot and dying. The people see this happening to their children and families. what are they to think? What would you think if some country came in to your land and started shooting your kids and wives? You would probably feel hatred too. You would probably do what you could, even if it meant using your household utensils, to get rid of the invaders.
This is how the Iraqi's feel, this is what they see.

It's possible that these were armed private security contractors and they were mistaken for US troops. I think there's 20,000 security contractors and they've just hired another 1,000 from Colombia.

He never talks much about war.
A hospital official, Ali Taleb, said a U.S. armored vehicle fired near the Ibn al-Jawzi building after worshippers left the mosque after Friday prayers.
U.S. Marine Capt. Jeffrey Pool, a military spokesman, disputed the account. Pool said two roadside bombs exploded near a U.S. convoy in the Ramadi area. Five gunmen and one civilian driver were killed in the subsequent exchange of fire, Pool said.
He said the incident occurred in a rural area with "no towns or mosques for miles."
However, Taleb said 14 of the 19 people wounded in the blast were children.
An Associated Press photographer at the Ramadi General Hospital saw at least three children with serious wounds being treated, including one who appeared to be in shock. One young boy had suffered a head wound.
no American family can expect to welcome a " killing of babies, children or women back home"
Nobody is going to ask his or her love one after coming back from Iraq if he or she target or killed any children. Right?
Some things are best to keep in the dark.

Unless it has upset them deeply, and they find that they have to talk about it to someone.
My son has talked to me in depth about what he saw and what he had to do. I wont be sharing his experiences, but i do have to say, that it is sad, very sad. It is something he, and every soldier out there will have to learn to live with.
Sporty in war "casualties are expected" children will die and so civlians, but who is to blame? our loves ones in Iraq? all American soldiers? or just the " badseeds" that willingly target civilians.

I think the answer is pretty simple....blame the "badseeds" and if you want more..blame the Gov't. But don't blame or categorzie all soldiers of doing such terrible acts...because the truth is that the vast majority of troops do not target civilians.
