U.S. forces killed three Iraqi farmers and wounded four during an air raid
Tuesday over Buchahin, to the northeast of the capital.
The civilians were resting at a poultry farm when they were caught in the
bombings, according to Hadi al Azawi, member of a human rights organization

a chicken processing plant in the village where residents say U.S. soldiers

A Palestinian woman was killed today in Gaza after a pair of Israeli missiles

in the last eight days.
The strike, which also injured a reported 13 people in the southern town
of Khan Yunis, came a day after another strike killed three Palestinian children,
whose bodies were paraded today before burial through Gaza streets seething
with angry citizens.

(or any condemnation at all, for that matter), even when the former involve
the killing of soldiers engaged in a war/occupation, and the latter involves
civilians. Needless to say, those remote murders by pushbutton are precisely
the kind of murders that the Americans in Iraq and the Israelis in Palestine
