Anyway, Brigadier General Kimmitt said on FoxNews today in a press conference that there were NO CHILDREN'S BODIES in the area after our Soldiers had conducted actions on the objective.

Maybe you havent seen it because you havent been in wedding in Iraq(?) shooting in the air is their tradition and way to celebrate wedding, there is no reason to call their customs dumb-assery or anything else, but I have to give you that it was certainly wrong time and place to celebrate like that.
And to Mark Conley: Yes finnish isnt the easiest language, if I am not remembering all wrong it has been voted to be "the second hardest language in the world " . But for a very rough translation would say something like: U.S military has let to know that they are investigating the charges, that they have yesterday killed tens of civilians who were celebrating the weddings.

That wasnt very nice thing to say
But anyway our tv-news said excatly that lots of women and children were killed, but maybe it is best that we wait more detailed news, before we start killing eachothers

That is actually true, I've seent it happening several times in Lebanon.
Firing weapons in the air is (almost) the same as us using fireworks.
Most of my Company had to spend much of the new years eve in shelter because of weapons being fired into the air..
What goes up has to come down somewhere...

Common sense: Don't start firing thousands of rounds into the air at 3 in the morning.

First off you do NOT live there you do NOT know what customs they have...
2nd if you really wanted to know the news dont listen no the news of any side of the conflict dont listen to arab tv or US tv because its BS on either side the americans say the iraqis are savages and the arabs say the US are savages...

watch neutral news ( if it exist more or less) its not the first time the US bombs weddings in afghanistan it happened also so i think it was a military mistake they have been hapenning alot lately..

Ok...thats a reasonable request to make...a little rushed JTF2, but reasonable...

In accordance with your views...Can you suggest a good, non-biased or neutral news group to watch, especially for the english speaking personell here? You seem to have some sources you rely on.

Especially when you said about the weddings and attacks: its a military mistake they have been happening a lot lately. i like to go to that statistic too.

My personal favorite is the BBC (British Broadcasting Corp) world news. On shortwave. From England.

Custom or not, firing a weapon into the air is STUPID. Yes they do it, they've been doing it since they got their hands on a firearm .. but that doesn't make it any less stupid. "Dumb-assery" is a fitting term for it.

Watching/listening [to] BBC is like watching FOX News - all talk, all bias, all the time.

JTF, who are you telling to "wake up?" How many times have you been over there? Have you immersed yourself within the language and customs and culture?

Better face it, just because an act becomes common, doesn't mean it's smart. Just because something may be construed as a custom to a westerner, doesn't mean it's the right thing. Shooting into the air is stupid. Period.
