U.S. Troops Kill 6 Rebels in Iraq Fight
Saturday, August 06, 2005

BAGHDAD, Iraq — U.S. and Iraqi troops repelled a series of coordinated insurgent attacks in southern Baghdad, killing six rebels and capturing 12, the U.S. military said Saturday. There were no U.S. casualties. (Rebels ? Rebels ? THEY ARE BLEEPING TERRORISTS!!! "insurgents isn't even correct ... look up the definition ... but now you want to generate yet more BS sympathy for them by calling them "rebels" ?)

The fighting began about 8 p.m. Friday when insurgents attacked an Iraqi army position with mortar rounds and small-arms fire, the command said. U.S. attack helicopters engaged the insurgents with rockets and gunfire. ("insurgents ... rebels ... insurgents ... man are you MSM pukes getting yourselves confused with this PC BS or what?)

At nearly the same time, a homicide attacker drove a truck loaded with explosives into a nearby Iraqi army checkpoint, killing an Iraqi soldier. (BRAVO ... about time you dump the 'suicide' title to these murderers!)

A suicide car bomber tried to attack another Iraqi position in the area, but a U.S. tank fired and hit the car, killing the driver and causing the car bomb to explode prematurely, the U.S. command said. Iraqi police said three bystanders were wounded. (oops ... nevermind .. you went PC sympathetic again.)

Minutes later, insurgents at a fourth location fired two rocket-propelled grenades and a mortar round at another Iraqi army post in south Baghdad. None of the rounds caused any damage, the U.S. statement said.

Over the next two hours, insurgents tried to regroup for further attacks on the two Iraqi army posts but were driven off by U.S. and Iraqi fire, the statement added.

"The enemy came to fight us with no success," said Maj. Listen Edge of Kennesaw, Ga., an operations officer with the 48th Brigade Combat Team.

Separately, the U.S. command said an American soldier assigned to a unit in Mosul was killed in action Thursday "during a terrorist attack" there. No further details were given. (the US command gets it right.)

At least 1,827 members of the U.S. military have died since the Iraq war began in March 2003, according to an Associated Press count. (this fact thrown in to generate anti-war sentiment and fear ... 'generate fear'? ... an act of TERRORISM!)

In other violence Saturday:

A homicide car bomber detonated his vehicle at a police checkpoint north of Hillah, in Babil province south of the capital, killing two policemen and wounding two others, provincial police reported. (Yes ... HOMOCIDE bomber ... thank you.)

• A roadside bomb exploded near a British military convoy near the southern city of Basra, wounding one British soldier, British and Iraqi authorities said.

What’s with the inconsistence?

Let’s break this down …

U.S. and Iraqi troops repelled insurgent attacks killing six rebels and capturing 12. There were no U.S. casualties.

insurgents attacked Iraqi army position with mortar rounds and small-arms fire. U.S. attack helicopters engaged the insurgents with rockets and gunfire.

a homicide attacker drove a truck loaded with explosives into a nearby Iraqi army checkpoint, killing an Iraqi soldier.

A suicide car bomber tried to attack another Iraqi position, but a U.S. tank fired and hit the car, killing the driver and causing the car bomb to explode prematurely. Iraqi police said three bystanders were wounded.

insurgents - two rocket-propelled grenades and a mortar round at Iraqi army post.

insurgents further attacks on the two Iraqi army posts but were driven off by U.S. and Iraqi fire.

• A homicide car bomber detonated his vehicle at a police checkpoint killing two policemen and wounding two others, provincial police reported.



1.U.S AND Iraqi = ‘insurgent’
But terrorist death and capture = ‘rebels’

2.Iraqi Army alone then U.S. help = ‘insurgent’

3.Iraqi army alone with Iraqi soldier death = ‘
homicide

4.Iraqi army with U.S. attacking back = ‘
suicide ‘ (terrorist died and 3 others wounded)

5.Iraqi army alone = ‘insurgent’

6.Iraqi army alone then U.S. help = ‘insurgent’

7.Iraqi police alone = ‘
homicide


In short …

Iraqi army or police alone = ‘insurgent’ – ‘
homicide

U.S involvement = ‘rebel’ - ‘suicide

Nice bias you have there Associated Press ... another anti - American news organization.
