Or rather, damned French media. From AFP:
In Baghdad’s Sadr City district, more than 10,000 Shiites gathered for the funeral procession of two of their own killed in a firefight Thursday night between the Mehdi Army militia and coalition soldiers that also left several people hurt.
Militiamen armed with assault rifles and pistols escorted the funeral procession, led by a cleric who waved a ceremonial sword.
Raising their fists in the air, the men roared, “There is no God but Allah. America is the enemy of God.”
I bet an American soldier is digging a well somewhere. Why aren’t we hearing about that?
