Why Are These Two Children Dead?

These two children are dead because an American soldier opened fire in the car in which they were travelling. They are two out of five of the people killed by that soldier.

These two children were in their own country when a foreigner who is in their country opened fire and shot them. They died because the current American government decided to wage war on Iraq, occupy it, loot it, dismember it. Most Iraqis say that Iraq under the predominantly American occupation of Iraq is worse than it was under Saddam Hussein.

The American army in a statement said it "regretted" that the children had died.

Many Americans and Europeans are upset at the evil that is being done in their name by their governments. Today March the 18th 2006 many Americans and Europeans are making their anger and disgust at what is being done in their name by their governments clear. And that is good.

(But I bet they are not as angry and upset as the relatives of these two dead children.)

Beir beannacht

Beir beannacht óm chroí go tír na hÉireann,
bánchnoic Éireann Ó,
Chun a maireann de shíolrach Ír is Éibhir
ar bhánchnoic Éireann Ó;
An áit úd 'nar aoibhinn binnghuth éan
Mar shámhchruit chaoin ag caoineadh Gael,
Mo chás a bheith míle míle i gcéin
ó bánchnoic Éireann Ó.

Bíonn barra bog slím ar chaoinchnoic Éireann,
bánchnoic Éireann Ó,
Is is fearra ná an tír seo díogha gach sléibhe
ar bhánchnoic Éireann Ó;
Is ard a coillte 's is díreach réidh
Is an bláth mar aol ar mhaoilinn géag,
Tá grádh im' chroí is im' intinn féin
do bhánchnoic Éireann Ó.

Ní fhaicim a gcóraid ag gabhóil sa taobh so,
bánchnoic Éireann Ó,
Ní fhaicim a mbólacht dá treor chun féir ann,
bánchnoic Éireann Ó;
Ach barca dá seoladh le fóirneart gaoth,
Is farraigí móra go deo lena dtaobh,
Go bhfaiceathar fós mé im' chóige féin -
ar bhánchnoic Éireann Ó.

Tá gasra líonmhar i dtír na hÉireann,
bánchnoic Éireann Ó,
D'fhearchoin ghroí ná cloífeadh céadta,
ar bhánchnoic Éireann Ó;
M'atuirse chroí, mo chaoineadh géar!
Iad ag gallaphoic síos fé ghreím, mo léan!
Is a mbailte á ríomh fé chíos go daor -
bánchnoic Éireann Ó.

Is fairsing 's is muar iad cruacha Éireann,
bánchnoic Éireann Ó;
A cuid meala agus uachtair gluaisid 'na slaoda
ar bhánchnoic Éireann Ó;
Rachaidh mise ar cuairt nó is luath mo shaol
Don talamh bhig shuairc is dual do Ghaeil,
B'fhearra liom ná duais dá uaisleacht é
bheith ar bhánchnoic Éireann Ó.

Scaiptear an drúcht ar gheamhar 's ar fhéar ann,
ar bhánchnoic Éireann Ó,
Is tagaid ann úlla cumhra ar géagaibh,
ar bhánchnoic Éireann Ó;
Biolar is samhadh i ngleanntaibh ceoigh
Is na srutha sa tsamhradh ag labhairt ar neoin,
Bíonn maise gheal is clú i gcúilinn óig
ar bhánchnoic Éireann Ó.

Is oscailte fáilí an áit sin Éire,
bánchnoic Éireann Ó,
Bíonn toradh na sláinte i mbarr na déise
ar bhánchnoic Éireann Ó;
Ba bhinne 'ná méara ar théadaibh ceoil
Ag seinm liom géimneach a lao is a bó,
Bíonn taitneamh na gréine orthu, aosta is óg
ar bhánchnoic Éireann Ó

What is the difference between these two children?

Both of these children were carbombed both of these children were the victims of the corrupt, illegal, and racist war and occupation chiefly led by the USA under President George W. Bush and Britain under Prime Minister Tony Blair. Both of these children are from Iraq - a country that the British and the Americans are determined to carve up and loot. Neither the British nor the Americans are worried about the victims of the coming civil war in Iraq that they are working so hard to start. Why would the British or the Americans worry about them? They are "collateral damage" and nothing more. So these two children have a lot in common. But there is one big difference:

This child was lucky.

This child wasn't.

What crime did these children commit?

Police and witnesses said 11 members of one family were killed in a U.S. raid overnight in Ishaqi. The Americans said two women and a child died as troops arrested an al Qaeda militant.

Autopsies on the bodies including five children, showed they had been shot in the head. Not even one of those children was old enough to go to school yet. Here is what the Americans have to say for themselves:

"Troops were engaged by enemy fire as they approached the building, coalition Forces returned fire utilising both air and ground assets.

"There was one enemy killed. Two women and one child were also killed in the firefight. The building ... (was) destroyed."
Major Tim Keefe went on to say that the al Qaeda suspect had been captured.

This is what happened according to police and witnesses:

  1. U.S. forces landed on the roof of the house looking for somebody they suspect of being in al-Qaeda.

  2. The occupants hands were bound by the soldiers and they were dumped in one room.

  3. Then the American soldiers shot the 11 occupants in the head.

  4. Then the American soldiers destroyed the house.

So the crime these children committed was to be related to someone who American soldiers suspected of being a terrorist. (I'm sure that after he's been tortured he'll "confess" it doesn't matter whether he was a terrorist or not.)

The fact that those American soldiers have no right to be in those children's country is irrelevant. They are there now and they will do what they like to whom they like. It's not as if Iraqis are human beings after all. Those children were guilty of being Iraqi and unable to defend themselves in the brutal barbaric illegal and racist war being waged against their people by the current American government.

What is this boy doing?

He is picking up pieces of somebody, another human being, who was killed in a bomb blast and putting them into a plastic bag for burial. If you look at the picture you will see that that is human blood on his hands. If you look closely at what is in the bag you will see that they are pieces of a human being.

A corrupt, incompetent, racist American government launched an illegal and racist war against Iraq. The American government deliberately collapsed a society. The American government deliberately knowingly have encouraged hatred and civil war and continues to do so.

The American government wants to rape and then dismember Iraq, the fact that this involves raping and murdering quite a few of the people who live there is just business as usual for this American government.

Go home and stay there you once were a force for good now you are a force for evil.

Why is this 14 year old boy crying?

His name is Mohaned Ali. He is crying because the man in the coffin is his father. His father's name was Ali Hassan Mashawash. He was the Dean of Engineering in Baghdad's Al Mustansaryah university. He was kidnapped a week ago by unidentified gunmen his body was found yesterday.

This boy is crying because a corrupt, incompetent, racist American government launched an illegal and racist war against Iraq. They deliberately collapsed a society. They deliberatley knowingly willingly evilly fanned the flames of hatred and of civil war so that they could first rape and then dismember the country.

Most Iraqis blame the occupiers, chiefly the Americans, for deliberately encouraging the increasing violence and spiral of hate in Iraq. They blame the occupiers, chiefly the Americans, but also the British and the Danes because the the occupiers are guilty of deliberately encouraging the increasing violence and spiral of hate in Iraq.

Estmates vary as how many people died yesterday - the day this boy was crying for his murdered father. Some say it was 80 some say it was "dozens" how many of those people had children who are now crying because at least one of their parents are dead?

Go home and stay there you once were a force for good now you are a force for evil.

Who do you believe - part 2?

Do you believe the emissary of the government that launched an illegal and racist war and which since it occupied the country has fostered sectarian and ethnic divisions assiduously:

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - The U.S. ambassador in Baghdad denied on Sunday seeking Iran's help to calm violence in Iraq.

Britain's Sunday Times newspaper said journalists in Tehran had been shown a letter by a senior Iranian intelligence agent that was purportedly from U.S. envoy Zalmay Khalilzad, and which invited Iran to send representatives to talks in Iraq.

"Ambassador Khalilzad has the authority to meet with Iranian officials to discuss issues of mutual concern," the embassy said in a statement. "But he has not sent a letter in any language to the Iranians."

The newspaper said the letter was written in Farsi, which the Afghan-born ambassador speaks.

or do you believe this report from the Sunday Times:

EVEN as politicians in Tehran and Washington stoked the fires of confrontation last week, America was said to have been asking Iran for help in calming the violence in Iraq.

A senior Iranian intelligence official showed Channel 4 News a letter in Persian purportedly signed by Zalmay Khalilzad, the US ambassador in Baghdad, inviting Iranian representatives to Iraq for talks.

Last November Khalilzad — who speaks Persian and dealt with the Iranians during negotiations over Afghanistan — said he had been authorised by President George W Bush to try to engage Iran and that its co-operation was needed to secure long-term peace in Iraq.
