    US troops kill Iraqi child

    ABC News has this report:

    Iraqi civilians often complain that US forces open fire indiscriminately when attacked, leading to innocent people being caught up in the crossfire. The US military says it takes all precautions possible to ensure innocents are not killed. Al Qaeda has reportedly denied it uses human shields. "They accuse our mujahedeen (holy warriors) of using human shields. But you are deceiving yourselves, worshippers of the cross... Wasn't it the Americans who used women and children as shields in Fallujah?" said a recent statement, whose authenticity could not be verified, according to AFP. During the war that overthrew Saddam Hussein, US forces said Iraqi fighters frequently used women and children as human shields, but it was never possible to independently verify the reports. Human rights groups have criticised the US military for not being restrained enough in its use of force, particularly at checkpoints when vehicles sometimes approach at speed and US soldiers, fearing a car bomb attack, open fire.
    American troops are indeed well known to be somewhat trigger happy. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts

    That's six Anti-American articles in a row. Could you maybe give it a rest for a day and have a pop at someone else. After all, surely it's not just Americans who are the sole doers of evil in the world.

    Leaving aside the "anti American" rebuttal for a moment, the 2nd post merely states that Iraq has emerged as a drug traficking centre - are you stating that is America's fault Allan?

    The 4th post indicates American citizen's opinions, so how can the majority of American citizens' opinions be anti American?

    The next post relates to British sovereignty, perhaps you'd like to indicate there whether you'd like to have our sovereignty handed over to the US. Is it anti American to say that you don't want foreign agencies to have access to details of British citizens? I don't think so.

    And the 6th post relates to Amnesty saying that foreign governments should launch investigations into torture and abuse, which the Bush regime are complicit in. Presumably you believe torture and abuse are "pro American" Allan?

    Now, after explaining that for you Allan, perhaps you'd like to condemn the murders of innocent civilians in Iraq?

    Still pretending not to get it, eh allan?

    Well Dougie, you've obviously got it and I'm glad that I haven't, whatever it is that you've got. Tell me, what is it that you've got?

    I'll take that as a yes. Unless you mean to say that after my posting a response to the sort of charge you made above 7 times is insufficient for you to comprehend.
