    "American troops do shoot first and ask questions later",

    The officer, who would not be identified, said: "My view and the view of the British chain of command is that the Americans' use of violence is not proportionate and is over-responsive to the threat they are facing. They are not concerned about the Iraqi loss of life in the way the British are.

    "The US troops view things in very simplistic terms. It seems hard for them to reconcile subtleties between who supports what and who doesn't in Iraq. As far as they are concerned Iraq is bandit country and everybody is out to kill them."

    "When US troops are attacked with mortars in Baghdad they use mortar-locating radar to find the firing point and then attack the general area with artillery, even though . . . it may be in the middle of a densely populated residential area."
    http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2004/...621898368.html

    Contradiction can be noticed.
    Even they closest ally could not support the barbarism of Americans.

    "American troops do shoot first and ask questions later",
    Your statement ...

    "When US troops are attacked with mortars
    Let me translate for ... the American forces were fired on by regurgents.

    then attack the general area with artillery
    Again I'll translate for you ... Americans forces fired back.

    It is a shame these regurgents firing at the American troops continue to put the Iraqi people in the middle.

    Your heading is misleadling at best ... an outright lie at worst.

    Exclamation

    If the "brave" Iraqi "resistance" fighters are willing to use women and children as shields, than that is an Arab problem that must be dealt with by Muslim Arabs.

    It should not be an issue to the US forces. US forces should always be free to return fire.

    Anyone who thinks otherwise apparently thinks that Muslim Arab women and children are somehow worth less than the "brave" Iraqi "resistance" fighters, and that women and children may be freely used as shields.

    Perhaps if we looked into how the British have historically dealt with Iraqi uprisings ?




    "Barbarism"

    Shamsery, did you even read this article either ? Please show me where the word "barbarism" appears. I couldn't find it after reading the entire article.

    This is why I suspect you cannot read.

    Line them up.
    He's learned that terror is his alone,
    Discovered he can come for your people with no fear, Of reprisal; he's found no fighting, here, But only food, only delight. He murders as he likes, with no mercy, gorges And feasts on your flesh, and expects no trouble.
    - Beowulf. c.900 AD.

    Yep. And what really hurts is that our enemy knows we won't do this so they are using our weakness to their advantage.

    God, if we could just drop one canister in there........

    If we actually examine the facts, the correct title to this thread would be :

    "American forces RETURN FIRE when fired upon and then ask questions"

    Shamsery can you not differentiate between firing first and RETURN FIRE ?

    I'll help you understand. If you hit me and I then hit back, I didn't start the fight - no matter how many of your family you use to hide behind.
