It would seem that local Iraqis threw stones at British troops who came to the aid of the bombed patrol in Amara. The BBC website mentions video footage of this, and of a burning vehicle which contained the bomb. Link to story http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/4758188.stm My initial thoughts are: Who shot this footage? Will the British media feature it (without the sensitive bits obviously) as prominently as they did the âabuseâ? Will Iraqi politicians express their outrage at this, seeing as theyâre so quick to take offence at wrongdoing? Iraq, the âcradle of civilisationâ is it? That's a sick joke if ever I heard one. Christ, Iâm so angry I can barely speak. Take over for me someone, while I calm down.
