al-Qaeda My Lai [Dan Collins]
Michael Yon has just posted a report of an entire farming village liquidated by al-Qaeda “fighters” in anticipation of the arrival of American forces. I think that it will be instructive to compare the number of column inches devoted to this with those devoted to Haditha.
Of course, they may just be voicing their frustration with the declining numbers of civilian deaths in June, the poor dears.
Meanwhile, Zimbabwe’s top Catholic cleric is urging our British allies to invade his country and topple Mugabe before millions die from his enlightened policies. Perhaps American forces have better places to be redeployed than Okinawa? But leftists doubtless think the Godbotherers not worth the effort.
Cernig at Newshoggers is unimpressed with attempted atrocities in the UK, stating that what happened with the Glasgow vehicle was all that would have occurred had the London charges gone off–not a catastrophe–whilst blithely ignoring that cannisters were removed from the Jeep before they could go off. Clearly, he states, this is not al-Qaeda’s doing, and that may or may not be so, but it simply would not do to believe that their capacities may have been degraded this substantially by coalition intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan, would it? And it’s not as though there are al-Qaeda trained sleeper agents being sent to Britain, is it?
