Ah, those American troops no longer on patrol-just supporting Iraqi operations...I found this in Iraq Today: "Mov 28, 2010 U.S. troops kill an Iraqi civilian on the airport road when, according to the U.S. account, his vehicle approached their convoy and did not respond to hand gestures. The slain man turned out to be an airport employee. 'The driver failed to slow down, turn on his lights or react to hand-and-arm signals and other escalation-of-force procedures from the convoy,' the U.S. military said. Kind of reminds you of the old days, doesn't it?"
In another incident reported to us a group of policemen had just exited their vehicle and "not a minute later" a bomb destroyed the vehicle. "Nothing was found of the driver" who perished in the explosion.
In the walled Sunni neighborhood of ________ where there is only one entrance/exit checkpoint the people hunker down. The fear is widespread and many are sure they will be attacked and killed. Electricity and water remain sparsely available. Christian areas are now similarly affected after the recent carnage directed at them.
Once again doctors are being assassinated.
In another incident...well I guess you've heard it all before. Too bad the echo is not just a mirage. It is all too real, and, from what we hear, the level of emotional trauma is reaching new heights. b
