Reality v. Bush, Part 1

From Holden:

Last night His Royal Lieness said in refernece to his war on Iraq:

Fellow citizens, we are in this fight to win, and we are winning.

But if we’re “winning” how come US soldiers don’t feel safe, even in the Green Zone?

U.S. troops in Iraq fired warning shots at the Canadian envoy’s car on Tuesday after his convoy failed to slow down while approaching an American military convoy, the U.S. military said on Wednesday.

A statement said the shots were fired inside the heavily fortified Green Zone, which houses the Iraqi government and diplomats and is the headquarters of the U.S. military.

“The Canadian ambassador’s vehicle did sustain damage yesterday from U.S. military gunfire,” said the statement.

“The rear guard on a U.S. convoy signaled the vehicle to stay back. After it failed to do so and continued moving toward the convoy from behind, warning shots were aimed at the front of the vehicle, away from the passenger area.”

“The incident is under review to determine why it was necessary to fire warning shots,” said the statement.
