    OMG!
    Anybody else see a face in that cloud of smoke? Kinda like a pissed off Arab with a turbin on its head. And an arm with a hand near the lamp post.
    (I guess I'd be pissed off too if I just blew myself up and realized it was for nothing! No 17 virgins waiting in paradice! D'oh!

    (And, no, I haven't been smoking or sniffing anything.)

    Yet, another stupid, cowardly act. My thoughts and paryers go out to the victims and their families. Everyone has a right to protest, but c'mon. Taking innocent lives in such a cowardly way is not honourable. Just stupid.

    This will sound sick, but I thought it was hillarious that they went after the media. The terrorist are obviously less happy with their coverage on the news than our guys are. Man, the grunts in front of the hotel lit up that cement mixer too, great fucking job!
    The footage inside was even better, reporters wearing their flak vests and tighty-whities running up and down the halls.

    Why are they going after the media? The media/journalists are the terrorist's best friend?

    Evidently, journalists are a prime target in Iraq. I guess that they're pissed that blowing up children is portrayed as heroic in the media.

    I know some (many?) journalists have been targetted, kidnapped and some murdered but blowing up a hotel used by the media seems counter-productive to the terrorists aims. Maybe they're just stupid too. Killing and driving media personnel out means less of the media to get the bad news out of Baghdad/Iraq to the west (does anyone ever see any "good news"). Go figure.

    if there wasn't so much political bs, some of it stemming from inaccurate and/or 'chosen perspectives' from the media, this war very well may be over by now...of course, we've made some mistakes, but we've done that in all wars.

    Yeah, but I was close!

    Wasn't sure, I was rambling on & on, but, my point is, I just don't understand their thought process at all.
    And, if their are 72 virgins in Heaven, what makes these people think they're going to 'put out' in Heaven if they haven't put out on earth? Just a thought, and please, excuse my ignorance, but according to God's commandments: Though shall not kill.
    Even in the Koran it is written that you should not harm even a leaf on a tree.
    So you see, I am confused
