Saw this on a news report… WTF?

"In Fallujah, west of Baghdad, the U.S. military distributed leaflets Wednesday inviting residents to apply for compensation for damage done during the Marine siege in April. The military also promised to clean up the streets, improve water facilities and rebuild schools and mosques."

So now the Coalition is even compensating them for the damage WE cause when fighting them when they attack us?

The world's gone mad. .

This is how we win hearts and minds. Clean up the place, install cable and TV’s in every house and in 10 years they will be complacent sheep just like us.

This is a good argument for leveling the place and killing everyone in it.

These are probably solatium payments, and are a normal part of wartime operations.

It is a way for the military to pay for inadvertent damage without admitting fault.

MOAB it in a grid pattern, one bomb every 100 meters. and to make it better, it will wipe out a few million camel spiders as well.

Our military -- and I am not talking about our hardworking men and women, I'm talking about the brass now -- are officially a bunch of PC pussies

Umm, why would we NOT rebuilt buildings we hit there like we are rebuilding the ones we blew up kicking out Saddam?

Next time the town won't be so friendly to the Syrians and Palistinians when they come to town asking for people to put them up while they try to kill infidels.

Trouble with that reasoning is that the Syrians and Palistinians ARE still in town and bragging about how they 'defeated' the US. .

I don't see the big deal. A few tons of rock and a few 2x4's and we're done, right? They'll also need mortar to keep those rocks together, I have no idea where they are going to get all the sand for that but if they look hard enough....

If you live in a shithole and it gets blown up it is still a shithole

Screw em... they are WAY better off now than they were "then". They should be paying us (US) and I would just as soon get a few million barrels of oil so I don't have to pay 2 bucks a gallon at the pump. What the hell are they going to do with the oil now? No more dictator to squander it all.

To me the very least they could do is to let us move in some tankers and say fill em up. Afterall, this was all about oil wasn't it??

No doubt orders from the pc monkeys at the top, starting with Bush. The islamic terrorists can also thank Karl Rove and Andew Card for their compensation. Damn polictical-correctness to hell.
