300 Insurgents Killed in Battle
Headline BAGHDAD, Iraq – U.S. backed Iraqi troops on Sunday attacked insurgents allegedly plotting to kill pilgrims at a major Shiite Muslim religious festival, and an Iraqi official estimated some 300 militants died in the daylong battle near Najaf. A U.S. helicopter crashed during the fight, killing two American soldiers.––snip––……the casualty toll for Iraqi forces was three soldiers and two policemen killed and 30 wounded. Why is it that when I just listened to the ABC top of the hour news on the radio. I heard all about a car bombings, a suicide bomber, women and children died. A USA helicopter crash and the two crew members were killed. BUT, something was missing………No mention of the 300 terrorist deaths? Is this the American news I’’m listening to? What is wrong with this picture? I’m sure that if it were 300 Americans killed I’d be hearing about it every 5 minutes! Our brave military men and women deserves more than just a mere mention of their successes in the “next days” newspaper . These men and women are putting themselves on the line for us every day of the week, and they deserve our heartfelt thanks and prayers for continued safety and success. They deserve our support like we have never given it before in our lives. These are very hard times over there people. The main stream media just loves to report the numbers of deaths we unfortunately have to have. Don’t they just love to report on our daily body count? But on a day like this one, they seem to find other stories to cover. Jane Fonda and Mother Sheehan can do or say whatever the HELL they want to. We know where they are coming from. Let them shout their useless brains out! This new news is good news. Thank you for the GREAT job you are doing Guys and Gals, God Bless Our Troops
Lets hope we hear news like this on a daily basis.
