War would be great if it weren't for the civilians

Did US Soldiers Execute Iraqi Family? Including Children?

A senior Iraqi police officer reported that autopsies on the bodies, which included five children, showed each had been shot in the head.
US Raid on Home Killed 11 Family Members
From the Jamaico Obsever:

"Troops were engaged by enemy fire as they approached the building," US spokesman Major Tim Keefe said. "Coalition Forces returned fire utilising both air and ground assets.
"There was one enemy killed. Two women and one child were also killed in the firefight. The building ... (was) destroyed."
Thank God they got the building. Those things are dangerous.

Looks like everyone is covering this story except for the U.S. media.

Here's a puzzler: if you try to provoke someone into attacking you, so that you can claim you were attacked and then attack them, does that count as a provoked attack? And how ticked off was Bush & Blair when Saddam Hussein didn't read the signs correctly? Note to Cabinet staff: send Saddam some articles on Milosevic's death.

Here's another puzzler: how can people here at home simultaneously believe themselves to be Christians and support the war? The premise of the war is a lie. That violates Christian tenets. We're killing civilians. That violates tenets. We're using chemical weapons - that violates every sense of natural order. We're killing our own troops with depleted uranium - so much for supporting the troops.

I'm not surprised that dirt-eating rubes in Kansas can severe critical thinking apparatus in the brain to allow them to inhabit that paradox. But what about all the other Bush/war supporters? Can it be that so many self-inflicted lobotomies have been performed? And if that's the case, shouldn't these dangerous automatons be tagged in some way so we know who they are?
