24 Iraqi children killed by suicide bomber


Wednesday, 13 July , 2005, 15:31

Baghdad: Twenty-four Iraqi children and one US soldier were killed this morning in a suicide car bomb attack in southeastern Baghdad, hospital sources and US forces said.


Eighteen more children were wounded, along with two US soldiers.

Eyewitness Mohammed Ali Hamza, 25, said US forces turned up in the Al-Jedidah district to warn residents to stay indoors because of reports of a car bomb in the area.

"Children gathered round the Americans who were handing out sweets. Suddenly a suicide car bomber drove round from a side street and blew himself up," he added.

Not to derail lonestar's 300th 'terrorists are bad' thread, but how did how did you end up traveling to qatar? Military?


edit: actually, an on topic statement:

This bombing is totally fucked up. I hope whoever did it is hunted down and never shown the light of day again.

One thing - what's up with these kids getting candy from the soldiers? If I was an Iraqi parent, I would remind my kids daily to stay the fuck away from American soldiers.

:sad:

I wish I had the numbers.  the strength in numbers to change the world today.

When I was a young rebellious child, full of hopes and dreams of change and peace, this excited me and got me all riled up to make things like this apparent, and fight in the honor of american and global ignorance.

Today, I feel sad. :sad:

A plethora of music aspirations control my temptations of future revelations beyond "now". The percussion, and the heart beat of my love and devotion. The rhythm goes beyond, prying into the third eye, releasing the creativity held so far inside. The melodicies, through the out of tune pianos and broken classical guitars...there lies a beauty. A beauty as prevelent as the fire inside. To release these energies is pure ecstacy, to deveop these gifts is sacred. The vocality, so pure as can be, shying away from herself, lies within me. For the underlying serenitity, this is what I live for. I plea for harmony, and nothing more. Music equals love. Creation of love leads to the procreativity of the World, and it's spirals and puddles prevailing.

Damn Americans killing civilians again. If the American troops would stop handing out candy to the Iraqi children, this sort of thing wouldn't happen. (Sarcasm for the tongue-in-cheek impaired)

you know if a us action resulted in 27 civilian deaths an apology and some monitary settlement would be given... what are these terrorists going to do? the thing that i dont get is how do they keep getting people to join... and how many do they have left?

a friend of mine was too scared to go to downtown doha. and i told him he was letting the terrorists win by being scared.

it only takes a few PATHETIC idiots.

Four Pathetic Young Bombers (Written by One Fed-Up British Woman)

The Times ^ | 7/13/2005 | Alice Miles

Four pathetic young bombers
Alice Miles
It is difficult for Londoners to return to normal life when the events of July 7 have been so glamorised


NOW THE real shock. The first suicide bombing to occur in Western Europe ? and not one, but four of them. This takes terror in Britain into a new dimension.


And yet, my instinct is the same as it was before learning that these were not just ?ordinary? bombers, but suicides. And the instinct is even stronger now: do not glamorise them. I see four pathetic young men, feeble manifestations of confused masculinity, too spineless to negotiate the 21st century. Unemployed? Useless? Do something that makes you feel big. But anyone can make a bomb and take it on to the Tube. It is the work of an instant and of a deluded idiot. We should not glamorise them, and any who might follow them. We must not dignify them with fear.


I see their poor mothers, too, wondering, as the parade of missing and dead filled our television screens, where their sons had got to. And I ask those mothers: why did you not know what was happening to your sons? I ask their fathers, too, and their community leaders who allow such bile to fester in communities impenetrable to outsiders and kept separate from mainstream British society: do you see what you have done?


And then I ask my fellow commuters: are we afraid now?


The aftermath of Thursday?s bombing showed London at its best and by God I was proud of it; proud of the calm and the silence and, above all, of people?s determination to cling to normality. I heard polite attempts to cancel appointments, apologies at missed meetings, efforts not to further inconvenience anyone. People were relentlessly practical. We left the tears and the panic to those out of town, or overseas; those irritating e-mails from people you hadn?t seen for years ? are you OK? Is so-and-so all right? Do you think she was caught up in it? It was hysterical and it didn?t help.


There has always been danger on the Underground. As someone who grew up in London, to me the Tube has long represented both freedom and threat. Freedom, because it led to everywhere. Threat, because there was always the flasher, the potential rapist or the mugger; at journey?s end, the IRA bomber. The difference since 9/11 has been the sense of danger from a bomb on the Tube itself. It lurks at the back of one?s mind on almost every journey. It lurked on July 6. It lurked yesterday. It will lurk again today. You calibrate the threat, and you make your choice. For most Londoners, that means getting on the Tube.


Yesterday morning I watched, along with my fellow passengers, the comers and goers at each station. I checked sideways for packages on the floor. Occasionally people caught one another?s eye and smiled. No one but a nutter smiles on the Tube, as a rule; since July 7 we all do. Ruefully, perhaps, but a smile nonetheless. It makes me even prouder. Defeat us? You have united us. But today I imagine we shall stop smiling at one another. No more looking for reassurance in a stranger: do not look young and Asian on the Tube today.


On Monday Tony Blair painted us ordinary Londoners as heroic: ?Millions of people are coming to work with a steely determination that is genuinely remarkable.? It isn?t remarkable. Nobody feels remarkable. It is just life. It is ordinary. People have jobs and they must turn up for them. It is absolutely normal.


And normality is what we need now. Normality shows that life goes on; most importantly, it reveals to other potential bombers that they cannot change anything this way.


Yet normality is hard to carry on when those in authority keep raking through the rubble. The police leak details of hidden horrors; we are invited to imagine the scene underground at King?s Cross, in the sweat and the stench. Gruesome hints about the difficulty of identifying bodies spattered across track and tunnel are sharply illustrated by the collection of a toothbrush, for DNA, from a potential victim?s relative. A distraught mother seeking her missing son is given an entire page in the Daily Mail to bemoan ?rivers of blood . . . death in the morning, people going to find their livelihood, death in the noontime in the highways and streets?. Mr Blair invites grim imaginings by telling MPs ?the effect of a bomb is to make identification sometimes very, very hard and harrowing?. The Culture Secretary rushes to open a Garden of Remembrance. The Prime Minister announces a Europe-wide two-minute silence and the Queen promises to attend a memorial service.


And all this risks glamorising the work of four pathetic young men, and recruiting others to their ?cause?. The shock of the blasts tore lives apart, yes, but they were not, for most of us, our lives. We are not grieving, as the friends and families of the bereaved grieve. Nothing will ever fill for them the void left by July 7, 2005. Public mourning will not bring them back; public grieving belittles their grief.


It is now clear that there is something constructive that the politicians can do. Forget the mourning, and tear into those Muslim ghettos instead. Force them to open up. Make the imams answer. Tell them to let their women speak, as they have been prevented from doing until now. We have done softly, softly. We have pandered to fears about religious hatred. We have listened with utmost sympathy to their concerns.


No one should stigmatise any community, the police said yesterday. But those bombers have stigmatised the communities that made them, and we should spare a thought for the devastation wrought on those communities; but then we should insist that they cannot continue in a state of alienation from the rest of society. That is a challenge for them, and for all of us. They, too, must become ordinary.

exactly that is an excellent article. you cant fear the terrorists or they are effective... i dont mean to sound apathetic but the best approach is to ignore them.

The same thing happened last year. US soldiers were handing out treats and then a suicide bomber blows up his car. The US troops were slightly wounded, at least 7 iraqi children died. Freedom fighters to the rescue.

Question; If any of you were soldiers serving in a hostile country where numerous attacks (that disregarded civilian casualties) had been made against you, would you allow children to be around you?

The bombers are evil. But I fear the troops were a little bit stupid.

it might make some of us support the war

Seeing as there was not ONE SINGLE SUICIDE BOMBING in Iraq before the US invasion, it would make any historically knowledgable, logical and compassionate person want to reject, not suppport, the war.

What is so amazing to me is that this poster uses the EXACT SAME illogic as the Drug Warriors do when a cop is killed breaking into a suspected drug dealer's house. These guys do not look at the flaw of prohibitionist policy, but get all emotional and escalate the violence on both sides.

I don't see why it being a "suicide" bombing bears any importance. While Saddam was in power, there were terrorist attacks by Shiites and Kurds. The only difference is that they didn't blow themselves up.

Also, your example bears little resemblance to the news story above.

They are trying to win the hearts and minds of the Iraqis.  Wtf are they supposed to do?  Consider everyone an enemy?  hate every1?  Also, charity is very common in Islamic culture.  Go to any Muslim country and you will have beggers all over you, including kids, you better give them something, you better, otherwise you are an infidel :smile: lol, joke
