This is a blatant lie. The soldiers and Marines today are the best educated and trained military the US has ever fielded.
A very large portion of the troops who are in Iraq are Reserve units, whose troops are often highly educated, who have families, and solid, good-paying jobs at home.
These individuals are contributing members of our society.

Most of the soldiers are ghetto trash and lack a good education, that's why they are so damn easy to be controlled and made to carry out dirty deeds by their officials.

The point of the matter is that there's no evidence other than anecdotal that there was a pregnant woman. It appears that the Iraqi was a member of the insurgents, and just shot the Americans without cause.

This thread has no basis in truth and it is a magnet for those who are so without scruples that they will come here to post repugnant lies.

Just more out of control violence perpetrated by inhumane products of filth who are proudly representing our army.
Way to make us look like the devil! Beating on pregnant woman, yeaaah... America is really doing the right thing in Iraq.
The thing that disgusts me is the fact that we are sending people over there who are heartless and xenophobic enough to BEAT on a pregnant women. These aren't Americans, they are military products of our satanic-mind-controlled institutes. They are taught that human life, especially that of Iraqis or 'insurgents' is worthless. These are the same scum we can expect to shoot American citizens when they finally stand up to the government. Blah.
This war and anybody remotely supportive of it fits squarely in the realm of : LOST CAUSE.
This war is a lost cause, and anybody still supporting it is a LOST CAUSE.
"The Muslim Scholars Association, a hardline group of Sunni clerics, said in a statement that the Iraqi soldier had shot the U.S. soldiers after he witnessed them beat a pregnant woman.
"His blood rose and he asked the occupying (U.S.) soldiers to stop beating the woman. Their answer through the translator was: "We will do what we want." So he opened fire on them."

I find this to be propaganda. That the US news agencies would go bat# crazy over us soldiers killing unarmed Iraqis, but remain silent on this proves it.
Iraqi soldier reportedly kills three US troops, including American captain, in al Mawsil.
In a dispatch posted at 11:35am Baghdad time Wednesday morning, the Yaqen News Agency reported that US troops had arrested Qaysar Sa'di, a soldier in the puppet "Iraqi National Guards" after he shot and killed three US troops, including a captain.
Yaqen reported a source in the puppet security forces in al-Qayyarah as saying that a translator who was accompanying the Americans was also wounded in the incident.
The source said that the incident took place in a neighborhood of al-Mawsil, 420km northwest of Baghdad, two days earlier in the course of joint raids that the US troops and their puppet army allies were carrying out. An American soldier at one point began to beat and kick a pregnant Iraqi woman, prompting the Iraqi puppet "National Guard" soldier to try to intervene. The confrontation between him and the American escalated to gunfire when Sa'di, the "National Guard" soldier opened fire on the American and his companions.
The source said that Sa'di was a resident of al-Qayyarah and had been in the puppet army for more than a year at the time of the incident.
US admits another "non-combat" death of soldier in Iraq.
In a dispatch posted at 10:34am Baghdad time Wednesday morning, the Yaqen News Agency reported that the US military had admitted that one more of its troops had been killed in a "non-combat" incident near the US military airfield at al-Qayyarah, about 60km southeast of al-Mawsil in northern Iraq.
Yaqen reported the US statement as announcing that the death occurred on Monday, 31 December 2007. The Americans offered no further details on the incident and failed to indicate why the news of the death was delayed until after the start of the new year.
Brigadier-General Noor al-Din Hussein, commander of the Iraqi Army's 4th Brigade, 2nd Division, told Reuters: "The shooting was deliberate. It was not an accident."
