Nightmare at Market Square

So, it’s a lovely Saturday morning, you’re walking along the street with your kids, out doing the shopping.

You and the younguns suddenly come across black hooded figures clustered around an apparently severely injured man, half naked and smeared head-to-toe with blood, nailed to a pole.

Your 6 year old ducks behind you in wide-eyed terror at the sight of rivulets of streaming blood. The 4 year old just wails.

The perpetrators insist it’s a ‘happy message.’ They call scaring the hell out of your children ‘doing good.’

I’d like the perps to explain that to the kids’ child psychologist.

Bear in mind that the same perps are lobbying politicians to ban display of magazines with women in bikinis on the cover. Sex = bad, bloody violence = good?



“it’s their fault for taking their children to a battle”

WikiLeaks has released a classified US military video depicting the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad — including two Reuters news staff.

Reuters has been trying to obtain the video through the Freedom of Information Act, without success since the time of the attack. The video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun-site, clearly shows the unprovoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers. Two young children involved in the rescue were also seriously wounded.

Makes me proud to be an American. Not.

Donate to Wikileaks.
