Car bomb kills 9 U.S. troops in Iraq

Excerpt
A suicide car bomber rammed into an American patrol base in Diyala on Monday, killing nine soldiers and wounding 20, the military said. All were members of the 82nd Airborne’s 5th Squadron, 73rd Cavalry Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, the military said. Fifteen of the 20 were treated and later returned to duty, while five others and an Iraqi civilian were evacuated to a medical facility, it said.

In its Web posting Tuesday, the Islamic State of Iraq put the number of Americans killed at 30.

“Almighty God has guided the soldiers of the Islamic State of Iraq to new methods of explosions,” it said without elaborating. The message appeared on a Web site that frequently airs communications from militants, but its authenticity could not be independently confirmed.

It was single deadliest attack on ground forces since Dec. 1, 2005, when a roadside bomb killed 10 Marines and wounded 11 on a foot patrol near Fallujah.

HL’s Take
Just another day of Carnage in Bush’s war that he wants to go on forever. If we had pulled out Iraq like everyone wants to that would be 9 more soldiers that were still alive, 9 less families who’s lives would be ruined for the lie. The insurgents will never give up. Just like we would never give up if some foreign country invaded us and tried to take it over, steal all our resources and kill our citizens indiscriminately. We would be out in the streets fighting them with everything we had, and we would be right for doing so. There is a civil war going on over there and we can’t stop it. A civil war that broke out after we took out Saddam. Everyone knew it was going to happen, but Bush didn’t care he had to have his permanent military bases over there, and had to pump that oil out of unmetered wells to the tune of Millions of dollars a day. Lets end this already.


How Our Soldiers Feel About Iraq

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on April 24th, 2007 6:02 am by HL

This is from a letter to Craigslist, from a soldier whose live Bush has ruined along with oh so many. Of course most of our men and women in Iraq feel the same way

I’m having the worst damn week of my whole damn life so I’m going to write this while I’m pissed off enough to do it right.

I am SICK of all this bullshit people are writing about the Iraq war. I am abso-f***ing-lutely sick to death of it. What the f**k do most of you know about it? You watch it on TV and read the commentaries in the newspaper or Newsweek or whatever god damn yuppie news rag you subscribe to and think you’re all such f**ing experts that you can scream at each other like five year old about whether you’re right or not. Let me tell you something: unless you’ve been there, you don’t know a god damn thing about it. It you haven’t been shot at in that f**king hell hole, SHUT THE F**K UP!

How do I dare say this to you moronic war supporters who are “Supporting our Troops” and waving the flag and all that happy horse shit? I’ll tell you why. I’m a Marine and I served my tour in Iraq. My husband, also a Marine, served several. I left the service six months ago because I got pregnant while he was home on leave and three days ago I get a visit from two men in uniform who hand me a letter and tell me my husband died in that f**king festering sand-pit. He should have been home a month ago but they extended his tour and now he’s coming home in a box.

You f**kers and that god-damn lying sack of shit they call a president are the reason my husband will never see his baby and my kid will never meet his dad.

And you know what the most f**ked up thing about this Iraq shit is? They don’t want us there. They’re not happy we came and they want us out NOW. We f**ked up their lives even worse than they already were and they’re pissed off. We didn’t help them and we’re not helping them now. That’s what our soldiers are dying for.

Oh while I’m good and worked up, the government doesn’t even have the decency to help out the soldiers whos lives they ruined. If you really believe the military and the government had no idea the veterans’ hospitals were so f**ked up, you are a god-damn retard. They don’t care about us. We’re disposable. We’re numbers on a page and they’d rather forget we exist so they don’t have to be reminded about the families and lives they ruined while they’re sipping their cocktails at another fund raiser dinner. If they were really concerned about supporting the troops, they’d bring them home so their families wouldn’t have to cry at a graveside and explain to their children why mommy or daddy isn’t coming home. Because you can’t explain it. We’re not fighting for our country, we’re not fighting for the good of Iraq’s people, we’re fighting for Bush’s personal agenda. Patriotism my ass. You know what? My dad served in Vietnam and NOTHING HAS CHANGED.

So I’m pissed. I’m beyond pissed. And I’m going to go to my husband funeral and recieve that flag and hang it up on the wall for my baby to see when he’s older. But I’m not going to tell him that his father died for the stupidty of the American government. I’m going to tell him that his father was a hero and the best man I ever met and that he loved his country enough to die for it, because that’s all true and nothing will be solved by telling my son that his father was sent to die by people who didn’t care about him at all.

F**k you, war supporters, George W. Bush, and all the god damn mother f**kers who made the war possible. I hope you burn in hell.


Pat Tillman…The Story that Refuses To Die

Lawmakers to open Tillman-Lynch hearing

AP
Excerpt
WASHINGTON – As the Army probed Pat Tillman’s death, investigators implored the CIA and Pentagon last year to scour their databanks for aerial video of the friendly fire incident, footage they believed might have been captured as a Predator drone flew over the scene.

Lawmakers plan to press the Pentagon on Tuesday with questions still hovering over the one-time National Football League star’s shooting: Was a drone flying overhead when Tillman was killed? Did it videotape the incident?

The military says no such videotape exists, but members of Congress hope to elicit the new information when the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform holds a hearing as part of an investigation into misleading information from the U.S. military. Members of Tillman’s family, who have continued to raise questions about the incident, were also scheduled to appear.

The most recent investigation by the Army, released last month, documented a monthslong search for the video. The undertaking “suggests the distinct possibility that a Predator drone overflew the battle scene, and, if it did, may have captured yet-unrevealed material information,” said Daniel Kohns, a spokesman for Rep. Mike Honda, a Democrat who represents the San Jose, Calif., area where Tillman grew up.

HLs Take
It’s the story that refuses to die. Something fishy was going on when Pat Tillman was killed by his own men. Was it done on purpose to shut him up.? Tillman was questioning what was going on over there, and with his status as a guy who walked away from a multi-million dollar NFL contract people would have listened to him. Was this a case of The Army killing its own on purpose. You know that has happened in the past. They will do anything to stop the truth of their dirty deeds coming out. Congress is going to take a shot at it now. We’ll be following this story till the end.
