More fuel for the fire of burning resentment for the U.S....

Iraqi 'beaten to death' by US troops
from news.com.au
Agence France-Presse - April 14, 2004


AN Iraqi has died of his wounds after US troops beat him with truncheons because he refused to remove a picture of wanted Shiite Muslim leader Moqtada Sadr from his car, police said today

The motorist was stopped late yesterday by US troops conducting search operations on a street in the centre of the central city of Kut, Lieutenant Mohamad Abdel Abbas said.

After the man refused to remove Sadr's picture from his car, the soldiers forced him out of the vehicle and started beating him with truncheons, he said.

US troops also detained from the same area five men wearing black pants and shirts, the usual attire of Sadr's Mehdi Army militiamen and followers.

Qassem Hassan, the director of Kut general hospital, identified the man as Salem Hassan, a resident of a Kut suburb.

He said the man had died of wounds sustained in the beating.

A spokesman for the US-led coalition could not confirm the incident.

Only one of many, alas. We're too busy counting bodies to win their hearts and minds. CentCom is creating a new West Bank in Iraq. Superior firepower used as retaliation against civilians for "harboring terrorists," checkpoints, and killing women and children in the name of "democracy." It makes me sick.

How come this story was not presented on the "fair and balanced" Fox News?

Seems like it would be catnip for the librul media. Don't it?

Anyways, back in reality, we all understand what's going on.

Do US soldiers actually have truncheons?

Yes, MPs carry batons (which are considered truncheons).

"police said today"

What police?

What is the source of this information?

If this article is accurate, I want to see those soldiers tried for murder. If not then what is the real story?
