US Forces Mistakenly Fire on Vehicle

Hey is that the new 2006 model rat-at-tat-tat...oops

U.S. forces mistakenly fired on a civilian vehicle outside an American base in a city north of Baghdad, killing three people, including a child, the military said. Well, so much for the support of that city. This is why it's so important that we train those Iraqi troops as quick as possible. So next time its one of them that mistakenly executes an entire family.

A U.S. soldier thought the vehicle was moving erratically outside the base in Baqouba and fired warning shots, said Maj. Steven Warren, a U.S. spokesman. "It was one of these regrettable, tragic incidents, Warren said. Oh, one of those. It is sad that civilians sometimes are caught up in and killed because of the actions of their governments. Soldiers are killed in a questionable wars, civilians have planes slammed into their office buildings at nine in the morning. This is the world we live in.
I do have to question the main stream media's decision making skills though. How come when a horrific accident occurs they post it as a headline and make US troops out to look like little Hitlers running around with automatic weapons bent on the destruction of Islam but when an Iraqi school is reopened or, I don't know, a percentage higher than US citizens turn out to vote in Iraq you have to turn to page 13 to read about it?
Unfortunately, the horrific, anti-war, anti-Bush headlines sell. No one wants good news. You'll never have a truly un-bias media in the world of money and politics.
