3 U.S. soldiers, Iraqi family of 6 killed

I hate stories like this, but the American media won't report them.

This has been yet another bad week in the Iraq War. Now a roadside bomb near Baghdad has killed 3 U.S. soldiers and an interpreter. This brings the number of U.S. troops killed in Iraq just this week up to 7. (This week's other casualties were also ignored by the media.)

And a family of 6 Iraqi civilians - including 4 children ages 4 to 11 - was killed when an American jet destroyed their house.

Now do chickenhawk liars like Jim DeMint understand why we don't want the war continuing, let alone drawing in more of America's young people? If they don't get it by now, they're a lost cause.
