Didofoot Reads The News, Part 2

Posted by on March 26, 2003

See Part 1

“The United States acknowledged it might have killed some civilians with air strikes after 14 people were reported dead in missile attacks on a Baghdad housing block.

“A statement issued by the US Central Command stopped short of confirming the deaths reported by Iraqi officials but blamed Baghdad for placing military weapons in civilian-populated areas.” – Agence France-Presse

Is anyone else laughing at this? I actually laughed out loud when I read it (then quickly toggled to my spreadsheet when my boss glanced over at me – oh, Excel, you wise-cracker!).

I am in such a general state of being horrified that it is now possible to find aspects of this amusing again. Dammit, Baghdadians. When you put military targets right next to civilian stuff like that, shit, what do you expect? Y’all knew we’d be coming for you eventually. Y’all should have made better arrangements.

    Wow, this government is morally just AND mature.

    I think the US’s next move should be to get ahold of some Iraqi missiles and launch them into Baghdad, saying, “Stop bombing yourself, Iraq, stop bombing yourself.”

    i know, they’re all “it could have been our missiles… but it coulda been their’s too! how do you know it was ours! um, my knee hurts, can i go get an ice pack?” it’s scary when the wacked out behavior of my 4th graders gives me insight into the government’s actions. sheesh.
