Magic Bullets Discovered in Sadr City by AFP Photographer

Sometimes the propaganda is so obvious it’s almost funny.

An elderly Iraqi woman shows two bullets which she says hit her house following an early coalition forces raid in the predominantly Shiite Baghdad suburb of Sadr City. At least 175 people were slaughtered on Tuesday and more than 200 wounded when four suicide truck bombs targeted people from an ancient religious sect in northern Iraq, officials said. (AFP/Wissam al-Okaili)

To make it even tastier, there’s another one from July 10, 2007, apparently featuring the same woman, holding another unfired round:

An Iraqi elderly woman inspects a bullet which she says hit her bed during an alleged overnight raid by US and Iraqi troops in Baghdad’s impoverished district of Sadr City. Residents said two people were killed and four wounded during the raid. (AFP/Wissam al-Okaili)

Actually they were found on a gurney at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas.

Now, now, mustn’t jump to conclusions. They might have been shot from a slingshot. Everybody knows the evil US coalition forces carry those.

Her eyebrows are obviously painted on. Understandable, since this was a well-planned performance for media cameras and she would have wanted to make sure and look her best. But what’s with the matching stripe running from just below the center of her lower lip to the bottom of her chin?

Do they have her name? How many times have they featured her stories?

Not being ugly about the Iraqis however they lie about 90% of the time. Ask any soldier that’s tried to work with ‘em.

I think they are tatoos.

We had a Yuppie scumbag move into our town. "There is a rifle and pistol club near my new house, but I'll squeal and sue until they close it."

He called the police to report "Bullets hitting his roof". They got there and checked the gutters...

To find pristine unfired ammo he had thrown there.

In a perfect world, he would have been cuffed for filing a false report, and fallen down the stairs a few times on the way...

Sadly, the Local Finest had all they could do to keep from laughing.

Those are tattoos; quite common in that part of the world.

Those marks are tribal tatoos - common with older and traditional Arab women. She will have them on her hands as well.

They are very handsome decorations and universally admired - probably you are jealous!

Actually, that's NOT where the problem is. The problem is taking the word of an enemy, believing them...and putting our troops in a brig. The US Marine Corp needs to be protecting their own warriors...this isn't taking place in the other branches...now why would that be? Somethin' smells to high heaven on all of this. Goes much higher and I suspect it's murtha who is heading this agenda against our Marines [there are others involved here].

We were also having a pretty good laugh about this one over here. Now, I've been looking at the second picture, which is older than the first. Quite a nugget she got there. It looks to be bigger than a .45 but not as long as a .50 BMG, maybe hardcast, polished, pristine, and unfired...which is a good thing because there's a little tip of a ballpoint pen sticking out the top. I'm thinking that's one of those special bullets that writes your death warrant before it zaps you.

Maybe she fell for that old “try and run this quarter down you face trick”

No, Karl the Evil One Rove did it. He secretly flew into Iraq and threw the bullets at her because he has tattoo-envy.

Karl, you rogue!

Next they will be accusing you of Swiftboating John Kerry. Oh the horror of it all.

The pair she’s holding look to me like 5.56 NATO cartridges, which are what the standard issue M-16 and M-4’s shoot. Could be wrong, but I have a small stash of ammo that sure looks similar...
