Why We Don’t Win in Iraq

Our soldiers shoot 12 year old Iraqi boys.

U.S. and Iraqi forces came under grenade attack Thursday in the western part of Mosul, the northern city seen as a final stronghold of al Qaeda and other insurgents, said Major Derrick Cheng, a U.S. spokesman in northern Iraq.

U.S. forces responded by firing at several people, killing the boy. He was found with 10,000 Iraqi dinars, or around $8.50, in his hand.

“We have every reason to believe that insurgents are paying children to conduct these attacks or assist the attackers in some capacity, but undoubtedly placing the children in harm’s way,” Cheng said.

Iraqi police in Mosul said the boy, who had sold sweets in the street, was shot more than once in the head. His 8-year-old brother ran away when Omar was shot, police said.

Who gives a damn what the insurgents do! DON’T SHOOT CHILDREN! Don’t riddle a 12 year old boy’s head with bullets! It makes the American soldiers look like uncaring monsters, which they really are if they do this.
