War News for November 5, 2003 Bring ‘em on: British Marine killed in southern Iraq. Bring ‘em on: RPG attack against US troops in Mosul. Bring ‘em on: Yesterday’s mortar attacks in Baghdad wounded four. No information regarding nationality of the victims was released. Gee, I wonder why? Bring ‘em on: US troops mortared in Baquba. Bring ‘em on: Bulgarian troops shelled in Karbala. Turks won’t send troops; US may mobilize more reservists. CPA rejects reconstitution of Iraqi Army. Thai Army drafts plans to withdraw troops from Iraq. Bush seeks new ways to bullshit American public about his quagmire. “The quandary for Mr. Bush, administration officials say, is in finding a balance: expressing sympathy for fallen soldiers without drawing more attention to the casualties by commenting daily on every new death.” Maybe "Whistle-Ass" Bush should just ask "Featherbutt" Nethercutt for some advice? Medical staging area at Ramstein AFB expanded to accommodate flow of wounded soldiers. “The decision to build a new structure comes as the steady flow of patients from Iraq continues, with Landstuhl Regional Medical Center receiving an average of 44 patients a day.” Wounded troops at Landstuhl RMC. “’Since the 23rd of March up to the 2nd of November we had 912’ patients, said Cornum…” US troops accidentally kill Iraqi farmer. Look, I know there are always accidental deaths of civilians in combat, but this shit is getting out of hand. Philadelphia Army officer retires. Commanded Infantry battalion in Iraq, praises troops by name. “Before Rutter and his troops left Georgia for their initial deployment, he called the parents of the single soldiers to tell them their sons and daughters were in good hands. ‘Some of those parents, I didn't bring their kids back,’ he said, a catch in his voice.” Who says Bush isn't interested in creating new jobs? Idiot Watch Ultra-conservative Claremont Institute presents Rush Limbaugh with its Churchill Award for Statesmanship. They plan to present the award in Los Angeles on November 21, 2003. I assume Rush will be out of drug rehab by then and he can make bail if the police arrest him beforehand. I am NOT making this shit up. Commentary Editorial: “Bush put his chips on the Defense Department and that gave him a magnificent victory in the ground war. And since the ‘official’ war has ended, Bush has stood by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld despite repeated miscues. The Defense Department underestimated the number of soldiers needed to establish security, failed to have a plan for pacification, disbanded the Iraqi army and turned Iraqi soldiers out into the streets and alleys with nothing to do but make trouble.” Casualty Reports Local story: Indiana soldier killed in Iraq.
