lets see how big we can make this one, the day 21 thread go to 6614
that is a good indicator to get out.
and with that about the reporters not being targets:

I take offense when the reporters hold themselves off as non-targets. There was christina amamanpor, I think, she was trying to say the military could never target anyplace with reporters. That is wrong. If they say soldiers come in the lobby and go to the roof, that is a good indicator to get out. That is the bad part of War, people in the war zone die.

Ok, pet peeve time. I am fairly certain that the correct pronounciation of "cache" is CASH, not cashAY. Reporters and soldiers are getting it wrong, or who knows, I could be wrong I suppose...

I disagree with Fred Barnes. I do not think the Hotel should have been off limits to the tank if it thought it was taking fire from there or spotters were there.

I think the journalist were idiots to not understand that they should not put weapon or spotter looking things on tanks. But as I certainly feel sorry for the families of everyone who lost a loved one. Heck I basically agree with the Labourite minister who said in question times that he did not want to see the innocent killed or for that matter the guilty. Other than Saddam and a few others I agree with him.

And of course the thing with the tank is moot. If you look on the map as the Brit journalist said, no way that tank hit the east side of that hotel. No use mortar could have either if I understand parabolas.

Recap attempt: Iraqis love us for liberating them and ride statue down street in Baghdad. The world watches and some are just getting in touch with reality. Rumsfeld says it's not over yet and Syria has ignored his warnings. Saddam and all of his gang are resurrected again for the fifteenth time. Snipers here and there. Kent the pigeon died (R. Leventhal said a dog got it this morning.)

No, you're right.

Isn't he the same guy who pronounces "cordon" as "kor-dahn" rather than "kor-d'n"?

From my e-mail (URBAN LEGEND WARNING!!)

"Prob a bit of exaggeration to this story, but ya gotta love it."

"To nobody's surprise there were protestors today in DC, they attempted to disrupt the metro system and block the Key Bridge, a leading artery into DC from Northern Virginia. I got hosed twice because I come in from NoVA on the Metro and it is raining hard which makes traffic worse
anyway...to the point--"

"I got off my train in Rosslyn because I had to use the bathroom. When I was getting back on the train, there were protestors on the train platform handing out pamphlets on the evils of America. I politely declined to take one. An elderly woman was behind me getting off the escalator and a young
(20ish) female protestor offered her a pamphlet, which she politely declined. The young protestor put her hand on the old woman's shoulder as a gesture of friendship and in a very soft voice said, "Ma'am, don't you care about the children of Iraq?" The old woman looked up at her and said, "Honey, my first husband died in France during World War II so you could
have the right to stand here and bad mouth your country. And if you touch me again, I'll stick this umbrella up your a** and open it."

It was a great morning.When I saw the first tank on the cam..it was the beginning of a tense time until it was clear there were going to be no RPGs fired ! The statue head being pulled down the street with a kid beating it with his shoe..priceless.
