Quote:Iraqi leaders may ask U.N. to restrict U.S. military

BAGHDAD -- Party leaders in the Iraqi parliament said today that they were setting up a committee to examine the continuing U.S. military presence in Iraq with an eye toward possibly restricting American activities, as the backlash continued over a U.S. raid Sunday in which the Iraqi government said 13 civilians were killed.

Before the end of the year, the United Nations is expected to take up its annual review of a Security Council resolution that authorizes the U.S. military presence in Iraq.

aqi leaders say the U.S. used too much force in responding to attacks on troops in Sunday's Sadr City raid and other incidents, leading to the deaths of civilians, and that they have not coordinated enough with Iraqi forces.

The military said it killed 49 alleged criminals in the incident and was unaware of any civilian casualties. But journalists for Western news organizations, including The Times, saw the bodies of two children at Imam Ali Hospital who were killed in the attack, and interviewed other children who were wounded.

The committee, to be made up of representatives from various political parties, is to meet Oct. 31 and make recommendations on any limitations Iraq should seek in the U.N. resolution.

Meanwhile, a roadside bomb in the Shiite enclave of Karada killed four people and injured 12 this morning, including people passing in a minibus. Three people were killed and 11 were injured, including four policemen, by a pair of roadside bombs near a day laborer site.

Why did the Iraqi government not complain to the U.N. when Iranian supplied car and truck bombs were killing hundreds of innocent civilians each day?

I suppose because Shia look differently at Shia than they do others.
John,
why do I miss this one of your statements every time one of your useful idiots opens a thread?
Quote:that's a nice article, but you forgot one thing. You forgot to also give us your sterling opinion along with it. That is part of the rules here. You can't just throw out something and not give your take on it. I get on Patrick about this , so I would be remiss if I did not do such with you.

After all, your opinion is of great value here.

I'm glad you actually read my message "Q". Now, if you will bother to read more carefully, you will see that the originator of the thread DID accompany the article with a comment. It is at the bottom of the post, and had you bothered to read carefully you would have noted this.

Any other questions?
