Following this bit from the 12th of April;
[i]"American troops have mistakenly killed at least eight Iraqi police officers at a checkpoint in Falluja, west of Baghdad, witnesses say.
The men who died were members of the local US-trained protection force, who were chasing a car carrying suspected thieves when the Americans opened fire on them, survivors said."[/i]
Yesterday saw even more carnage courtesy of the US military:
[i]"U.S. Troops Kill Three Iraqi Police Officers
In a separate incident in western Iraq, three Iraqi police officers have died after being mistakenly shot by U.S. troops. The shooting occurred during a U.S. raid on suspected members of al-Qaida in Iraq.
The US soldiers say they did not realize that Iraqi police forces were also in the area. In a statement the U.S. military said the troops had to take “appropriate measures for self-defense.”"[/i]
How on earth do you expect Iraqis to forgive such behavior? Let me guess…you simply don’t care.
Next time you wonder why Iraqis are shooting at US troops instead of handing them flowers, keep in mind that too many innocents died as a direct consequence of US “peace-keeping” presence there.
