"US and Iraqi forces raided...Sadr City. The US military says early morning airstrikes killed five suspected militia fighters. The military says it also captured a man suspected of bringing weapons and explosives from Iran. But the Iraqi police and Sadr members of Parliament say the attack hit innocent civilians who were waiting in line at a gas station."For Garrels it's just a ho-hum day of slaughtered "suspected militia fighters" or people queuing up for gas - who really cares when the US captured a big, bad Iranian agent?
If that seems bad watch out for this one:
Garrels states, "US officials say lots of different armed groups – Sunni and Shiite – are getting support from Iran, and that includes Sadr’s militia...BUT THERE'S NO QUESTION that militias acting in the name of Sadr, if not with his approval, have been using the new deadly roadside bombs which the US says come from Iran. They can pierce armor and they’re responsible for the deaths of more and more American servicemen."Oh yeah, no question about it, if General Killwell or General Betrayus says it then it's just got to be true - in fact the evidence seems like a slam dunk to me!
Regarding this propaganda on Iran it's well worth reading this post from The Washington Note that Juan Cole noted in his blog on Friday - scary stuff!
