Reports from Iraq of the deaths of as many as 9 US soldiers on this Sunday possible indication of retaliation over abuse of Iraqis at the hands of US
As many as 11 US troops killed in Iraq today, and as many as 30 hurt in or near the Iraqi town of Ramandi...
The following are my comments:
I know at this moment there is all lot of anger about over the abuse of Iraqis at the hands of US soldiers.
And all of that anger is just. But I refuse to believe that the majority of US and UK forces in Iraq are all "bad apples"
I think everyone may be looking away from reports of hurt or Killed troops in Iraq.
I would like to remind you that those killed in Iraq on all sides are victims of war and all leave families and loved ones to deal with the aftermath
of their death... and to wonder what might have been.
Most of the men and women in Iraq I believe serve with honor and pride.
Please do not forget them. Their death has no less meaning because of the actions of a few of their fellow soldiers.
9 in one day was once huge news here.. now it is left to a newb like me to post about it!
