  • When did our troops resort to "throwing" ammo?

    laughing uncontrollably....catches breath......laughing uncontrollably :D

    EDIT:



    An elderly Iraqi woman shows two bullets which she says hit her house following an early coalition forces raid in the predominantly Shiite Baghdad suburb of Sadr City. At least 175 people were slaughtered on Tuesday and more than 200 wounded when four suicide truck bombs targeted people from an ancient religious sect in northern Iraq, officials said.(AFP/Wissam al-Okaili)

    There must be some sort of miscommunication there. However, all the same....

      I guess their M16 jammed and to not get behind on their killing innocent civilian quota, they decided to just throw the bullets at her and give it their best effort.

            Damn, that's a bummer. I'll check through my cache and see if the image is still there. Basically, the Iraqi woman was holding two unfired .223 rounds saying they were shot into her house ;)

              Nice! Probably explains why the pic isn't there any more: doesn't fit with the agenda.

              Edit: sweet I see you've updated your original post. That rocks.

                  And there I was thinking the press had really just had a miscommunication...what does it take to get people to admit errors nowadays?

                      I just can't help but be puzzled as to how a photographer in the middle of that warzone doesn't know what a bullet casing looks like.

                      That or our press is adding captions to stories without really listening to the actual story on the ground.


                      Both possibilities don't bode particularly well for this war..

                        Maybe the bullets DID hit her house... and she packed some powder into a casing and stuck the bullet back in (after remaking the shape in her soup bowl). If so, that's quite a grudge she's got.

                            The liberal media doesn't like guns so they don't want to know the first thing about them.

                              That's really nice. She probably got those out of one of those ammo bags that the support guys are always throwing on the ground.
