**Not sure if this was mentioned or not yet. I couldn't find it, so sorry if it's already been noted. Y'know, it's stories like this that really piss me off that we're even over there. This is the thanks we get for trying to help them? I say let another psycho back in there and let the body count rise back up, then we'll see who's sorry. I know I sound irrational, but I'm sorry, this shit really pisses me off. Jim, how is this for Liberal: I wish these teenagers would be dragged out into town square in Baghdad and have their own heads bashed in with concrete blocks. It's fairly rare that I get angry, it's even rarer that I get angry over something in the news, but this has seriously got me seeing red right now.** BAGHDAD, Iraq, Nov. 23 Iraqi teenagers dragged the bloody bodies of two American soldiers from a wrecked vehicle and pummeled them with concrete blocks Sunday, witnesses said, describing a burst of savagery in a city once safe for Americans. Another soldier was killed by a bomb and a U.S.-allied police chief was assassinated. THE U.S.-LED coalition also said it grounded commercial flights after the military confirmed that a missile struck a DHL cargo plane that landed Saturday at Baghdad International Airport with its wing aflame. Nevertheless, American officers insisted they were making progress in bringing stability to Iraq, and the U.S.-appointed Governing Council named an ambassador to Washington an Iraqi-American woman who spent the last decade lobbying U.S. lawmakers to promote democracy in her homeland. TROOPS BEATEN BY MOB Witnesses to the Mosul attack said gunmen shot two soldiers driving through the city center, sending their vehicle crashing into a wall. The 101st Airborne Division said the soldiers were driving to another garrison. About a dozen swarming teenagers dragged the soldiers bodies out of the wreckage and beat them with concrete blocks, the witnesses said. They lifted a block and hit them with it on the face, Younis Mahmoud, 19, said. Another teenager, Bahaa Jassim, said some looted the vehicle of weapons, CDs and a backpack. They remained there for over an hour without the Americans knowing anything about it, he said. I ... went and told other troops. Television video showed the soldiers bodies splayed on the ground as U.S. troops secured the area. One victims foot appeared to have been severed. The frenzy recalled the October 1993 scene in Somalia, when locals dragged the bodies of Marines killed in fighting with warlords through the streets. In Baqouba, just north of Baghdad, insurgents detonated a roadside bomb as a 4th Infantry Division convoy passed, killing one soldier and wounding two others, the military said. In Baghdad, Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt confirmed the Mosul deaths but refused to provide details. Were not going to get ghoulish about it, he said. The savagery of the attack was unusual for Mosul, once touted as a success story in sharp contrast to the anti-American violence seen in Sunni Muslim areas north and west of Baghdad. In recent weeks, however, attacks against U.S. troops have increased in Mosul, raising concerns the insurgency is spreading. Simultaneously, attacks have accelerated against Iraqis considered to be supporting Americans such as policemen and politicians working for the interim Iraqi administration. On Sunday, gunmen killed the Iraqi police chief of Latifiyah, 20 miles south of Baghdad, and his bodyguard and driver, American and Iraqi officials said. No further details were released.
