FALLUJAH, Iraq (AP)--U.S. troops opened fire on a truck carrying live chickens near the tense town of Fallujah, killing five civilians aboard the vehicle, including a father and his two sons, relatives said Wednesday.

The shooting took place at a roadblock Tuesday night, they said. Fallujah is the site of numerous anti-American attacks and U.S. soldiers in the area have been on a high state of alert.

``They went to bring chickens ... and they came back at 9 or 10 at night and we were waiting for them,'' said Khalid Khalifa al-Jumaily, whose two nephews were killed on the truck. ``The Americans fired on them.''

On Wednesday, reporters saw U.S. troops delivering one body from an Army ambulance to waiting families. In the morgue, reporters saw several bodies with what appeared to be gunshot wounds.

A spokesman for the U.S. military in Baghdad had no immediate information on the attack.

This weekend, U.S. jets dropped three 500-pound bombs near Fallujah after three U.S. paratroopers were wounded in an ambush.

Maybe one of them stuck their hand into a cage and got pecked and they had to fire in self defense.

well at least they're free now, right?


This war was so stupid. I hope the assholes (Bush, not saddam) who brought it upon us pay a hefty price for it.

Pers - most of your posts seem to have a common thread - white v. black.
This is not a race hatred forum. This is about polotics, where we all shoot
our mouths off and argue. Great fun for all!
Pers, maybe you should take your race hatred to a more radical
website, and leave us to fight amongst ourselves.
We are enjoying ourselves. We have no use for your white
vs. black thing.

Where's the Beef?

I think everyone should take a good step back and look at the events we're mocking so readily in some of these forum posts (not just this thread).

I agree, Andy, but remember: we have no control over any of this.
1. Bush stole the election by rigging it in the state his brother controlled
2. If G.W. bushy wants to declare war, he is the masturbator in chief, and can
start a war if he wants to!
3. We hate him.
I feel you, but we might as well laugh - too painfull to get real.
I don't know how the idiot sleeps at night!

Some people should run, not waltz back over to Off Topic, they are certainly not cut out for P&N.

Guerrilla War
by W.D. Ehrhart

It's practically impossible
to tell civilians
from the Viet Cong.

Nobody wears uniforms.
They all talk
the same language
(and you couldn't understand them
even if they didn't).

They tape grenades
inside their clothes,
and carry satchel charges
in their market baskets.

Even their women fight.
And young boys.
And girls.

It's practically impossible
to tell civilians
from the Viet Cong.

After awhile,
you quit trying.

You are unbelievably stupid.
1. Since I'm guessing you are around 13, you probably haven't learned much about the US electoral process. You should look into it a little bit.
2. The US Congress voted OVERWHELMINGLY to authorize military action. He didn't just do it alone.
3. Speak for yourself since his approval rating has NEVER been below 50% and is currently around 52% approve, 40% disapprove, and 8% don't have an opinion.

Burek:

That's called "winning the hearts and minds of the people", American style.

But, hey, you commie, couldn't you find some good news, like a library opening up. Sheezh, you guys.... :)
