BAGHDAD - U.S. jets widened the bombing of Basra on Saturday, dropping two precision-guided bombs on a suspected militia stronghold north of the city hours after strafing a house and reportedly killing eight civilians, officials said. (emphasis added)
Bombing of civilians in a country that you occupy is against international law. Bombing a building that you "suspect" harbors men who you have declared "enemies" even though they were recently your allies and even though their designation of "enemy" relies solely on an illegitimate definition that you have cooked up simply drives this entire, horrible conflagration out further into the area of insanity.
