Thread Name: BS: WAR:- Why the fuss when soldiers die
Subject: RE: BS: WAR:- Why the fuss when soldiers die
Does no one find it strange that ALL the "friendly fire" incidents are American troops killing Brits and none the other way around?. Likewise all the killing of civilians at checkpoints appear to be carried out by American troops and not the Brits (Will anyone ever forget the casual "The chic was in the way" comment from an American soldier who had just killed an Iraqi woman?) . By the last count the U.S. has killed more British soldiers than the Iraqis. This is something that the British were very apprehensive about in the beginning and it seems their apprehensions were justified.Mind you, if fairness they 've killed quiet a few of their own as well, despite trying to pin it on Iraq.
