Another Day, Another Slaughter

What kind of homicidal screwballs run US military operations in Iraq?

An Apache combat helicopter attacked the village of Djila, near Samarra. It opened up on three farmers who had left their homes at dawn to irrigate their fields. Two were killed outright and another ran to his home. In the second attack, the helicopter demolished the whole block building 14 people: five men, six women and three children. according to police Captain Abdallah al-Issawi. [Via L'Orient-Le Jour]

Meanwhile, it appears that Turkish troops will not enter Iraq - for several reasons (and a great deal of international pressure).
