If you aren't reading the weblog Healing Iraq, you should bookmark it now. Unless, of course, you are one of those people who refuse to believe that any Iraqis could possibly want to be free.

From today's entry:

My brother came home from school very early this morning and told us all about it. His high school is about 200 meters from the targetted site. He told us that blood was all over the place and people from the area were putting injured kids from the school into taxis taking them to hospitals. Parents were panicking trying to find their children among the mess.

That's right, there were kids in that mess, too. But hey, these people are just defending themselves, right? Just making a statement against the U.S. "occupation" of their country.

Bullshit. They are terrorists. They are vicious, murderous terrorists who do not care what or who they blow up, as long as it gets them toward their goal of driving the allied forces out of Iraq so they can take over. And they are not just Iraqi terrorist. No, the Iraqi resistance has aligned themselves with -surpise- extremist Muslims from other countries, like Syria.

How depraved are these pyschos? Look at another of today's posts from Zeyad:

The Mujahedeen are getting very creative day by day. Someone told me yesterday that a woman carrying a baby just a few months old was arrested in front of Al Yarmuk hospital in Baghdad after trying to enter. The IP and FPS found out that the baby was wrapped in explosives between his clothes. After questioning the woman she confessed that the baby was kidnapped and that some Arabs had offered her a considerable amount of money to get the baby inside the crowded emergency hall in the hospital, leave it there and they would do the rest.

Some of you - and this goes for all the nasty little Democratic nominees as well as some people reading this - better learn who our enemy is. It is not George Bush. It is not U.S. soldiers. Our enemy is terrorism and it's brought to you by extremists from Arab nations, who are banding together to not only drive the U.S. out of Iraq, but to kill as many innocent people as possible in the process.

We all have the same enemy.

I agree whole-heartedly!

All I have to say about the baby....

"oh, my god."

I'm the poster of the "oh, my god." entry

sweet mercy. If they were fighting for their future they'd be trying to save the children, wouldn't they?

'Bout time for another one of those lectures from the right on how things are really going well in Iraq and how the "liberal media" is giving us a distorted picture, isn't it...?

The United States military is going out of its way to avoid the whole "body count" controversy from Vietnam. In some ways this is an error. If you read the news and various bloggers from the region carefully, you begin to get the sense that we are killing piles and piles of the terrorists. 10-1 or 20-1 kill rates. Iraq is the flypaper for terrorists right now. I wish Central Command would release some additional information, but I understand why they won't. Far too many loons would seize upon the sight of bodies as a sign of OUR criminal intent. All those poor young men between 15 and 30, killed by the evil American military, just for caring RPG's and mortars.

Just making a statement against the U.S. "occupation" of their country.

Obviously not, as the below link makes plain.

Their enemy isn't the US; it's modernity and civilization. The centuries can't be rolled back, we're not going to party like it's AD 999, but they persist in believing otherwise.

Chuck's assessment of the media reaction to the release of enemy casualty figures is, unfortunately, all too believable. Ffffggghhmmmm, or whatever Ricki whatsername said.

With a president like Bush, why would we be in need of any enemies? Michele, if you aspire to be Bush’s second-in-command, go reconnoiter on the front lawn of the White House and pop the anti-Iraq War critics with cork bullets. We happen to be fighting against real post-war zombies in Iraq. Real people will get killed under these non-simulated circumstances. Iraqi civilians are no more safer in their communities from post-war anti-American hostilities than the military personnel in a Hummer are from a road bomb.

At this stage of the war’s ragged ending, the Iraqi theater is a story of tragedy not of democratic salvation in a fiefdom where only an iron hand will be able to keep Iraqi’s tribal rivalries in check. Today’s mujahedeen in Iraq is no less effective than the mujahedeen that once stifled the Soviets in Afghanistan, with cut-throat tactics now being used against a common enemy. The intoxicating glory of Saddam’s statue being toppled and dragged through the streets of Baghdad has worn out. The only confetti for American troops in their Babylon tour from now on will be public displays of shrapnel. Validating U.S. presence in Iraq for the function of preventing atrocities against the civilian population is an unethical marquee for beneficiaries who would be much better served with ceramic shields for body protection collected in a UNICEF drive.

Now don't feed the troll folks. The poor fool has obviously been out in the sun too long and is off his meds to boot.

Just when you think there isn't a life form lower than the addicted vermin who stash their drugs in the baby's diapers we get this sort depravity.

And we're the black hats? Puleeze.

It just makes you want to bang your head on the desk everytime the idiot wind blows from the Left.

Arrggh.

I have no interest in feeding the troll... but observe the introduction of the "we need to appoint a dictator and get out, the Iraqis can't handle democracy" meme here. This is about to become common parlance - we must be realistic, the Iraqis are too uncivilized for freedom to work, bring our boys home, etc.

(I'm not sure who the recommended dictator will be, though; I don't think even the anti-American protestors have the stomach to advocate bringing back Saddam, and his deviant hatchlings are now unavailable for the post.)

It's all very strange. I'm seeing racist America-First isolationism gradually being married to America-is-Evil. The worst parts of right and left - now together for the first time!
