Mortar attack by US troops slaughters three Iraqi civilians
A ten-year-old girl, a woman and a man were murdered by US troops today in Tikrit after a mortar shell fired by the American forces landed in their patio, according to a US military source who wishes to remain anonymous.
The US troops had been firing mortar shells into the swampy banks of the Tigris River, a routine operation to stop Iraqi Resistance fighters from taking up positions. One of the shells went astray and killed the civilians.
After the incident with the shootdown of the Ilyushin Il-20 reconnaissance aircraft over the Mediterranean Sea, Russia will supply an S-300 anti-aircraft missile system to Syria
Indeed, how dare they run US-independent policy? They should have followed the example of the European Union that turned independent states of the Old World into US-ditto entities
