We're Back...with a Fly Swatter and a Tiny Violin
First, a tiny violin for Spain...you remember Spain, once a part of the coalition of the willing? Then a civilian train got bombed by brave, honorable, peace-loving Moooslims, and they voted in a socialist president. And now they act like a neighboring surrender monkey nation. This is almost comical:
MADRID (Reuters) - A Spanish judge wants to question three U.S. soldiers as suspects in the death of a Spanish cameraman who was killed when a U.S. tank fired on a hotel housing foreign journalists during the 2003 assault on Baghdad.Hey, jerk-off, it's a war zone, and reporters take their chances. It is not our job to provide security for journalists, and if they are in the wrong place at the wrong time...oh well.
The Pentagon has found no fault with the soldiers, but High Court Judge Santiago Pedraz wants to question the three men who were in the tank, a court official said on Tuesday.
Telecinco cameraman Jose Couso and Reuters cameraman Taras Protsiuk died and several other people were injured by a shell fired on the Palestine Hotel in the Iraqi capital on April 8, 2003, in the U.S.-led war to topple Saddam Hussein.
The soldiers would be questioned as suspects for murder and for crimes against the international community, which carry sentences of 15 to years in jail and 10 to 15 years respectively.Murder? Crimes against the "international community?" Two words: FUCK OFF!
Legal sources say the U.S. Army is unlikely to grant access to the soldiers, and if the case ever got far enough to warrant arrests the soldiers could only be arrested in Spain.Pretty much what I thought. I just have to laugh at the nerve of these little impotent, asshat countries that hide from their own shadows at the same time they throw rocks at the US. It's like a pussy dog that barks but will never bite.
Where's my fly-swatter?
When push comes to shove...when the shit hits the proverbial fan, I don't think our troops are going to do anything differently. The US will not hand over any of our troops to a foreign government.
That last quote I provided from the article sums it all up: It's a story where there is no story. Nothing will ever come from this, so what's the point in reporting it?
It makes our troops look bad, and that's good for the MSM.
