Awe, gee, say it ain't so, say it ain't so
. But mom-meee, I thought they were there to help
the Iraqians. According to this story, "a US general investigating the 2005 killing of Iraqi civilians in Haditha" has said that US marines thought "Iraqi civilian lives are not as important as US lives, their deaths are just the cost of doing business, and that the marines need to get 'the job done' no matter what it takes". Well, that's how they deal with hajis
, General. What's more, they think it's funny as fuck
. And do you know, General, I have a suspicion that the people who ordered torture, promulgated rape, refused to reconstruct, sent out death squads and refused to even count the bodies - well, they seem to believe that black life is cheap. Merely a hunch based on every policy choice and signal they send out to the world.
