Woman hanged in Iraq


March 30, 2003 — WASHINGTON – An Iraqi woman who was seen waving a white flag at coalition forces was found hanging from a light post the next morning, President Bush said yesterday, vowing that “war criminals will be hunted relentlessly and judged severely.”

The woman was “waving a white flag to get out of an area that was hazardous,” said Maj. Gen. Victor Renuart at the Pentagon’s Central Command post in Qatar.

“Our troops allowed her to continue. They continued on a patrol, came back some time later in the morning and found her hanged at the light post on a street corner.”

Similar acts of retaliation against civilians have been reported throughout Samawa, Nasiriyah and Basra, U.S. commanders said.

See what they do to their protesters. But I guess the Iraqi’s don’t really want us there huh? They’re living great lives under Saddam’s regime aren’t they? Please. It’s reasons like this that we are fighting this war.

U.S. Forces Shoot at Least Seven Civilians:

This is a real tragedy. But in defense of the troops involved the truck was ordered to stop. And after the suicide bombing attack I really can’t blame them. It was unfortunate incidents like this that caused war protesters to spit on Vietnam Vets when they came home. Hopefully there will be no more incidents like this.

Quick War Bites

Protesters Throw Stones at National Guardsman:

That’s what peace is all about isn’t it? Throwing rocks at a National Guardsmen who was just going about her business. This is the thing about most of the protesters. It’s not that they’re for peace. They’re either anti-establishment or anti-Bush. Probably still sore over losing the election in 2000. If Al Gore had won and invaded Iraq would there be as many protests? I doubt it. Thanks to Freedom of Thought for finding that story for me.

Radicals Speak Out At Columbia ‘Teach-In’:

Check out the first 2 paragraphs of the article…

At an anti-war “teach-in” this week, a Columbia University professor called for the defeat of American forces in Iraq and said he would like to see “a million Mogadishus” — a reference to the Somali city where American soldiers were ambushed, with 18 killed, in 1993.

“The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military,” Nicholas De Genova, assistant professor of anthropology at Columbia University told the audience at Low Library Wednesday night. “I personally would like to see a million Mogadishus.”

It boggles my mind. If you hate America so much why do you stay here? Because you know you couldn’t make this kind of scratch anywhere else. So basically you’re engaging in capitalism which in turn makes you kind of a hypocrite doesn’t it? Thanks to Tongue Tied for the link.

Michael Moore defends his Oscar speech:

Michael Moore has lost all sense of reality. But we already knew that didn’t we? He’s now saying that the boos during his acceptance speech were coming from the loudspeakers and not audience members. I wonder what color the sky is in his world. HIs next project is about how 9/11 is being used to cover up policies in the Bush administration supposedly that aren’t in the best interests of the American people. Treason and blasphemy rolled all into one. I can’t wait for the premiere. NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks to Hollywood Halfwits for the link.

What’s the French word for weasel?

France Seeks Big Role in Post-War Iraq:

So let me get this straight. France wants no part in the war in Iraq BUT they want to be able to make a profit from post-war reconstruction in Iraq? You got to be kidding me.

France is like the guy who never pays for beer yet feels he’s entitled to one just because everyone else has beer. Nope. Sorry. I don’t think so. You took your ball and went home like the whiny little bitch that you are and now you want a piece of the pie? There is only one thing worse than a coward. A conniving greedy coward.

Shouldn’t you be surrendering to someone by now?

Give Back The Oscar

Stupid Academy Award:

I found this to be an interesting article about why Michael Moore should be stripped of his Oscar for Best Documentary for “Bowling for Columbine”. Basically the article states that Academy rules state that documentaries have to be based in fact while Mikey has edited, transposed, and basically lied in the film. The film is nothing more than an anti-NRA propaganda piece. You should give the Oscar back Mr. Moore. Shame on you. Anyway how can you take any academy seriously that gives one award to a fraud and another to a child molester.

Punch In The Head Returns

Yes it’s the return of everyone’s favorite feature here at The Trench Reynolds Blog, The Punch in the Head Awards otherwise known as The Punchies. These awards are for celebrities or media figures that deserve a punch in the head. To see the original list of inductees you can go here.

Today’s inductee was a no-brainer. He is filmmaker Michael Moore. He won handily for multiple reasons. His “documentary” Bowling for Columbine is rife with inaccuracies which he calls satire. He refers to President Bush as Governor Bush and kisses the French’s ass. Last night clinched the award for him though. While accepting his Oscar for Bowling for Columbine Mr. Moore, still bitter over the 2000 election said….

“We live in fictitious times. We live in the time where we have fictitious election results that elect a fictitious president. We live in a time where we have a man who’s sending us to war for fictitious reasons, whether it’s the fiction of duct tape or the fiction of orange alerts,”

“We are against this war, Mr. Bush. Shame on you, Mr. Bush. Shame on you,”

“What was the lesson that we taught children of Columbine this week? … That violence is an acceptable means to resolve a conflict,”

Could the last quote have been any more tasteless? So congratulations Mr. Moore. You can pick up your award from any American GI.
