26 Iraqis Die in U.S. Strike on Fallujah

Tue Apr 6, 5:01 PM ET

FALLUJAH, Iraq - U.S. warplanes firing rockets destroyed four houses in the besieged city of Fallujah late Tuesday, witnesses said. A doctor said 26 Iraqis, including women and children, were killed and 30 wounded in the strike.

U.S. Marines have been battling Iraqi guerrillas since Monday in a siege aimed at putting down Iraqi guerrillas in Fallujah, one of their main strongholds.

The rockets destroyed the houses in two neighborhoods in the city after nightfall Tuesday, the witnesses said.

Rafie al-Issawi, a doctor at Fallujah General Hospital, said the hospital received the bodies of 26 dead along with 30 wounded soon after. He said their wounds suggested they had been in the destroyed houses.

The deaths bring the total death toll among Iraqis in Fallujah on Tuesday to 34, including eight during heavy street fighting during the day.

I will worry about Fallujah's children when their parents start worrying. It is just like those folks to put their children in a situation where they can be killed and then whine about it afterward. Maybe they can stop having their children play with corpses too.

Bingo. We have bent over backwards to do it without blood and what have they given us but the back of their hand-- F em. The Kurds are aces in my book--great people and great allies, they are the only people in that country that I care about right now other than our courageous, decent troops.

The news media is ranking up there with the a-holes of Fallujah on my crap list.

Amen.

The kids are just going to grow up to be terrorists like the ones who did this to American Civilians, anyway.

Yes, my heart is hard right now, but I think we have the right to be pissed off.

Bingo. When the arabs, and lets face it, this conflict isnt limited to Iraq, learn not use their kids and families as political and military fodder, I will be more sympatheic to collateral damage.

I just took an online survery about Iraq 1 year later. I supported the Pres in all my questions, then I wrote this in the comments to his advisers part:

I want him to be firm, do what's right irrespective of domestic political concerns. I want him to make sure the troops are protected, well-armed and well led. i want him to let the Generals run the war-- I don't want it going through a White House political shop.

I want total war-- I don't want a piecemeal approach like in previous wars. I don't want to see celebrations over our dead people anymore--those celebrations should immediately be attacked from the air.

I don't want the killers to think they get a free pass. I want us to look at the world as it is, adapt to changes and put troop security at a very high level.

I want more predator drones, I want more black bag jobs. I want leaders (like Sadr) who oppose us there to not emerge as symbols of resistance to "occupation", these people shouldn't be elevated in the Gulf media--they should simply be eliminated.

I want changes if they are needed to be made without consideration to the political heat it may bring-- i.e. if we need more troops, send them--if the carpers want to carp they'll carp.

Also, I think people like Colin Powell and Hill Republicans should highlight the gross ( practically treasonous) partisanship rhetoric of the Democrats. The American people are not in the mood for Kerry and Kennedy to stab our troops in the back. The American people are not in the mood for the Left to cost us this war and to put us all in greater danger.

I know the President wants to appear above the fray, but the reckless, irresponsible politicization of this war by the Kerry campaign and the DNC needs to be called out and countered.

Just win, just do the right thing. Lead!!!! Don't handcuff the troops--let them fight and win. Punish our enemies. If Iran and Syria are playing dirty in Iraq's internal affairs, it does no good to give them a pass. Take the war wherever it leads, don't pull any punches.

Frankly my dear, after last week's atrocity, I don't give a damn. These same kids may very well have been the ones out in the streets celebrating the mutilation of four US civilians. The folks in Fallujah understand only one thing: brutal force.

I couldn't agree more-- these people are amazing (they are natural Democrats) they dish out the nastiest stuff possible and then you slap them back and they are all victims. Send them straight to Hell where they belong.

This "cry for us, we're only poor arabs game" effectively ended on 9-11 (then we all got amnesia) and now it ended for good after the charming acts on March 31st in Fallujah. They went to far, their bs game will only work on the anchors of Air America, the treasonous Fifth Column media and Rats and the Euro wussies.

A Correction

Mutilating the bodies of Murdered American CIVILIANS who were trying to deliver FREE FOOD to your worthless AA#@#.

Die and trouble us no more scum. You sowed the wind, reap the whirlwind. Don't want to get caught in the cross fire, come on out. WE, unlike your scum, don't kill the defenseless and the unarmed.
