Thus, returning fire in a possible sniper incident using a tank, which tore through the Reuters offices probably seemed like a good idea at the time. But more interestingly, those who answer the questions have come back with the denial "We are not targeting journalists... " That denial is interesting in itself. If their intel is so good, why shots into a hotel known to house the press? And these "non-embedded" journalists were reporting the non-party line. "They put themselves in harms way. This is war." Uh huh.
Also, the tally for "friendly fire" is growing daily. It's beginning to look like it's a better prospect to be Iraqi military than civilian or coalition forces, in terms of survival. And bombing a residential neighborhood to try to get Saddam &Co? Again, hunting prairie dogs, not with with 00 buckshot, but with dynamite---how would you know unless you do DNA analysis on some red smears?
