Our Oil is Sweet, but They Let the Terrorists Kill Us
Newsday reports that 9 more Iraqi civilians were killed in attacks throughout Iraq on Thursday, including four dead at the hotel in Basra and a cameraman for al-Arabiyah satellite television who was killed by US troops by accident.
It quotes an Iraqi, ‘ “The Americans eat up our oil as if it were a sweet dessert, but they let the terrorists kill us,” Muhaissen said yesterday as he kicked a singed shoe out of the yard. “No one is safe in Iraq anymore.” ‘
Among the attacks on Thursday were two rocket assaults on two hotels in Baghdad, which appear not to have resulted in casualties. Raghida Dergham of al-Hayat reports that one of the hotels, Sudair, was known as a place that businessmen and Israeli spies hung out. (Hint to Mossad: If journalists and terrorists know where your spies are hanging out, they aren’t very good spies).
