Left I on the News: “More beheadings in Iraq

Another day, another ten Fallujans murdered by American bombs, ‘dismembered’ (that’s the polite way of saying ‘be-headed, dis-armed, and de-legged’):

‘The U.S military launched a coordinated airstrike Monday on a safehouse in the turbulent city of Fallujah, the military said. At least 10 people were killed, officials and witnesses said.

‘Four 500-pound bombs and two 1,000-pound bombs were dropped, the military said.

‘Dr. Diaa Jumaili of Fallujah Hospital said 10 bodies had arrived there, most of them dismembered.’

Note that the article simply refers to this as a strike on a ‘safehouse,’ not on an ‘alleged safehouse,’ even though there isn’t the slightest confirmation that any ‘terrorist networks’ were struck. The article refers to the use of ‘precision weapons,’ but of course, without accurate, 100% reliable information, ‘precision weapons’ are no more accurate than plain old ‘dumb bombs.’ Precision and accuracy are not the same thing! [My watch tells time with a precision of one second, but if I forget to change it when I travel to a new time zone, it can be off by hours!]”
