The Guardian Still Whining About America as ISIS Takes Iraq

The Guardian:

US forces fired depleted uranium (DU) weapons at civilian areas and troops in Iraq in breach of official advice meant to prevent unnecessary suffering in conflicts, a report has found.

Coordinates revealing where US jets and tanks fired nearly 10,000 DU rounds in Iraq during the war in 2003

Which upsets this boring little, you know.

Official Jawa Editorial Position is as follows.

1 LMAO. You have to be some sort of fucked in the head to be crying about Americans being "in breach of official advice" 10 years prior - while a band of merry Muslims is rampaging through the country leaving mass graves and headless corpses in their wake - today.

I've sent my share of DU downrange. Us tankers, we love the stuff. If folks on the receiving end don't like it, they should have refrained from shooting at us. The fact that the bad guys choose to mix and mingle with civvys, is not our problem.

The Jihadists are responsible for various munitions being used in close proximity to civilian areas. Cut and dry, that is it.

The Guardian can suck my Sabot...

4 It's important to remember that all of this tragedy can be laid at the feet of George W. Bush.

We invaded Iraq based on intelligence that was either misinterpreted or falsified. There were no nuclear WMD. There had never been any nuclear WMD.

The invasion was bungled. Rumsfeld fired the Army Chief of Staff because he testified that we'd need 250,000 troops to pacify Iraq. That was a much better estimate than Rumsfeld's.

For the first several years, US troops stayed in secure areas to minimize casualties. This also minimized their influence on the countryside.

I worked for the Joint Staff while some of this was going on. Experienced officers who were confident that our strategy would not succeed were afraid to speak their minds. Saying "Network-centric warfare will not succeed in pacifying Iraq" might have severe professional consequences.

A quick read of such classics as "On War," "The Art of War," "The Peloponnesian War" would have done much to keep Rumfeld's (and Bush's) hubris in check

So, when you see things going astray in Iraq, remember that the quagmire was .

7 Iraq was formed by The British empire all problems, all quagmires all the misery and death for the entire region if not the world can be laid at the feet of the British Empire.
The win was done by Bush but he has been gone long enough for the current problem to entirely, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Maliki and Obama's fault.
It's been years Bubba, how long are you going to blame and bitch about George Bush?

9 Living up to its city billing, Harbour City is a monster of a mall and one of our top five malls in Hong Kong. Stretching for nearly a kilometer along the Kowloon waterfront, Harbour City not only boasts more than 400 shops and 50 restaurants but also two cinemas, three hotels, Hong Kong cruise terminal and a ferry terminal servicing Macau and China. For the true shopping addict, you can even live here in a serviced apartment.

10 And you may wonder, how in the world is a college student able to afford handbags like those? Well, minus the Louis Vuitton that was a gift from a very very giving ex boyfriend, I managed to save my money. Unfortunately, when I save it usually leads to depletion of my bank account and then I start from scratch all over again.

11 Take your cell phone with you. I felt stupid having put mine in the Jeep while we cruised only to see tons of folks talking on theirs while we left Port Canaveral. It was very cool watching all of the people wave goodbye from the shore, people who camped out just to do that. Even people in their backyards would wave as we sailed by. And just like in the movie Titanic, dolphins swam in front of our ship as we left Florida. The strange part is once you get out to sea and can see nothing but water. At night, we once saw another ship far away from us and it was the only lights you could see at all. It was very eerie but peaceful too.
