Leftists: US Murders Children in Iraq while Attacking Brave Zarqawi Freedom Fighters

This post is not a parody. Remember, it's not the answers that are important, only the questions. Sydney Indeymedia:

On the surface, the killing of the children (if indeed it actually happened!) was merely a mistake.

Or was it?

Could this have been yet another example of US soldiers using Iraqi civilians as human shields?

How convenient that the US Army had a supply of lollies to hand out to a large crowd of Iraqi children at the precise moment the fascist invaders were coming under attack from freedom fighters. [note to readers: by freedom fighters the author means Zarqawi's Tawid and Jihad group which claimed repsonsibility today of the bombing that killed 34 children in Baghdad. You may also know this freedom fighters from such beheadings as Jack Hensley and Eugene Armstrong]

And how convenient the US just happened to be having a 'ribbon cutting ceremony' to open a water treatment plant when it is well know that water treatment plants are regular targets of the insurgency.

Could the kids have been set up as part of some macabre publicity stunt by the Bush-Blair-Howard axis of evil on election eve?

Could the kids have been set up as part of some macabre publicity stunt by the Bush-Blair-Howard axis of evil on election eve?

In any case, how many children died in Iraq as a result of the US led Food for Oil Programme and Baby Killing Sanctions?

Millions!

Nor should anything remarkable be made of the fact that the insurgency - the future government of Iraq - has taken 'hostage' women from a Muslim country. [quotes around hostage are in the original]

Indonesia, in its transition to a new government, should be given a timely reminder of where its allegiance should lie.

With the struggling masses of Iraq? Or will the ultra-rightist Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono - a war criminal who struggled against East Timorese independence - now side with Howard?

The capture of two Indonesian women collaborators may help clear up any doubts he may still hold.

The left must not resile from its support for the Iraqi Resistance.

The reasons are clearâ?¦.

Interviewer: "Do you think the anti-war movement should be supporting Iraq's anti-occupation resistance?

John Pilger: "Yes, I do. We cannot afford to be choosy. While we abhor and condemn the continuing loss of innocent life in Iraq, we have no choice now but to support the resistance, for if the resistance fails, the "Bush gang" will attack another country. If they succeed, a grievous blow will be suffered by the Bush gang. ..."

WE abhor and condemn the continuing loss of innocent life in Iraq - yet what do the imperialist aggresors do? It is clear

".....I have walked the city's streets, along a road blown to pieces by a US missile. The casualties were children, of course, because children are everywhere........."

No comment.
