Rockets Hit Iraqi Air Base

And this just in: we may be withdrawing from Iraq, bit by bit, but there are still malcontents outside in the darkness who simply want to pick a fight.  Yep, those walloping warhogs over there in The Sand Pile are still taking potshots at people, including those at Iraqi bases.

From the article:  The attack comes days after over a dozen rockets targeted coalition forces outside Irbil international airport in the Kurdish-controlled region of northern Iraq. The attack killed one coalition contractor and wounded nine more. Iraqi and Kurdish residents were also severely injured.

A little-known Shiite militant group calling itself Saraya Awliya al-Dam, Arabic for Guardians of Blood Brigade, claimed responsibility for the attack. – article

We’ve been bringing our troops back here for some time now, but this prolonged warfare is something that is never, ever going to stop. Think the Chinese could put a stop to that? Nah, me neither.

    The Chinese Communist would kill them all! Every.Single.One! They’ve killed millions of their own people, what is a few million more?

    When the last bullet is fired, the last 2 mooslems standing will attack one another with a rock.

    GTFO!

    Sad fact: no war is truly over until both sides say it is over. One side may have to be dead, but both sides must agree. Especially in modern times when combatants like to think they are big tough guys by attacking unarmed civilians.

    I still like the idea of the Wheel of Misfortune, but no one else does.

    Remember when rockets were fired at a US base in Iraq during the bad orange man times and we were treated to screaming headlines and breathless boradcasts from all the big media, i.e, CNNBCBSABCMSNBC, readers, for days? Good times, good times indeed.
