US kills more people

BBC NEWS | World | Africa | US Somali air strikes 'kill many'

So for a bit of background, there's a civil war going on in Somalia and plenty of people getting killed already. America decided to bomb some "suspected terrorists" (as usual), and "many" people have died. Notice how there isn't much effort put into to counting the bodies of "brown" people, compared to say, white christians. But anyway.

Now this isn't really surprising, it's just a continuation of America's policy of showing it's murderous strength throughout the world. As always it's "suspected terrorists". Somalia's president Abdullahi Yusuf weighed in with this stunningly logical piece of legal opinion:

"The US has a right to bombard terrorist suspects who attacked its embassies in Kenya and Tanzania,"

I'm sorry, what? "Suspects who attacked its embassies". Well if you're sure they did it they're not really suspects are they? No matter about the trial or anything, you seem so sure! Why not just call them convicted terrorists? Convicted by the court of YOUR FUCKING IGNORANCE?

Anyway the other shocking part is this quote:

"So many dead people were lying in the area. We do not know who is who, but the raid was a success," interim government spokesman Abdirahman Dinari told AFP news agency about Monday's raids.

"MMM, so many dead...don't know who's who....what a success!" I just don't know what to say about that really, it makes me sick.

I was going to write another post about Blair's idiocy regarding cheap flights and climate change, but that'll have to wait till later because I'm too pissed off now.
